dc.description.abstractIn this research paper I explore the implications and limitations of Ireland’s abortion law. I specifically address the issue with a human right’s framework. In this paper, I argue that mounting historical court cases and the tragic death of Savita Halappanavar that sparked worldwide attention resulted in the passing of the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act of 2013. I concluded that while the act did improve Irish women’s right to life, it did not translate into improved access to abortion and continues to violate these women’s rights, such as the right to autonomy and the right to privacy.
