How did your TDs vote on Mick's Bill?


The following list shows how TDs voted on Mick's Bill; the Fatal Foetal Abnormalities Bill to amend the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act in order to allow abortion in the case of fatal foetal abnormalities, brought by independent TD Mick Wallace. The Bill was defeated today by 95 to 45 votes. 

The Bill was a duplicate to the one brought by independent TD Clare Daly in 2015 which was defeated by 20 to 104 votes.

Seventeen TDs were absent or deliberately abstained from the vote. 



In 2015 Anne Ferris was the only Labour TD to break ranks and vote against the government however, this time all seven Labour TDs deliberately abstained from voting. 

The TD's in italics were identified by The Life Institute as being 'pro-life' candidates in the run up to GE16. The TDs in bold signed the National Women's Council's 'Breakthrough Manifesto for Women' where they pledged to support reproductive rights and to repeal the 8th Amendment.

Kate O'Connell (FG), Josepha Madigan (FG), Maria Bailey (FG) and Katherine Zappone (Ind), voted against the Bill despite all having pledged in the 'Breakthrough Manifesto for Women': 
"If elected, I will…support reproductive rights and repeal of the 8th Amendment by delivering a Referendum to remove the 8th Amendment from our Constitution and bring Ireland in line with International Human Rights Standards."
