Abortion debate: the Irish referendum discussed and explained

Social Affairs Editor and Presenter

On Friday Ireland will decide whether to scrap its almost-total ban on abortion. Vocal proponents for and against reforming the constitution have powered a referendum campaign that has become increasingly bitter, but with a significant proportion of the electorate thought to have made up their minds.

Our Social Affairs Editor Jackie Long is joined in Dublin by a panel representing all corners of the debate.
