Abortion: Ireland's Guilty Secret?

Abortion is against the law in both Northern Ireland and the Republic. Alys Harte shares her investigation into the abortion issue and how it divides the young people of Ireland.

Abortion is against the law in Northern Ireland, unlike the rest of the UK, where it has been legal for nearly 50 years. In the Republic of Ireland, the right-to-life of unborn children is enshrined in the constitution. But these laws don't stop Irish women having abortions. In this film, reporter Alys Harte shares her investigation into the abortion issue and how it divides the young people of Ireland.
