Because women should have the right to do whatever they want with their own body and religious beliefs should be something personal and something which governs how 'you' live your life not something which you can use to govern the lives of others. Religion should not have any impact on the law, the law should be influenced only by secular morals which is why I think abortions should be made legal in Ireland irrespective of whether or not the mothers life is at risk she should always have the option to abort the baby if she so wishes. The law is based around Catholicism and to me that is wrong, for a religion which you may not even believe in govern the way you live your life.
