Abstract
This research was designed to examine the current social and political discourses around abortion in Ireland. The History of Ireland was examined as well as many Court cases around abortion leading up to modern day Ireland with more recent cases in the News. Different view points and attitudes were explored, as well as interviews being carried out in order to get different aspects on the public's view of abortion and the influence religion and/or the government have on people. This dissertation compares and contrasts cases throughout history with modern day attitudes and looks at whether there has been or will be any change in peoples discourses.
