TERMINATIONS FOR MEDICAL REASONS: THE WOMEN AND FAMILIES LEFT BEHIND BY REPEAL
REPORT SUBMITTED BY TERMINATION FOR MEDICAL REASONS TO THE REVIEW OF HEALTH (REGULATION OF TERMINATION OF ABORTION) ACT 2018
TFMR Ireland is a group established in 2012 by six women who had experienced a diagnosis of a fatal fetal anomaly for their baby while pregnant. They were prevented by the Irish Constitution and legislation from accessing a termination of pregnancy in Ireland and had travelled to other jurisdictions to do so. TFMR is the advocacy arm of LMC Bereavement Support (LMC), a registered Irish Charity. LMC is the only non-directive, non-judgemental, choice-based Irish charity
that supports parents facing a decision in their pregnancy following a fetal diagnosis, or who are bereaved through a termination for medical reasons.
