The Eighth Amendment has been officially removed from the constitution.

President Michael D Higgins signed the legislation making the change earlier.

It follows the referendum vote earlier this year.

The government hopes legislation allowing for legal abortion will be passed next month.

The Taoiseach Leo Varadkar told the Dáil that will mean abortion services should be available early next year.

The Pro Life Campaign said it was a “sad day for human rights” after the signing by President Higgins of the Thirty Sixth Amendment of the Constitution Bill 2018.
