Ireland need to relax strict abortion and replace them with laws which respect more the rights of women, said the European human rights council commissioner Nils Muiznieks.

ireland's abortion law is one of the highest in the world, told the Reuters news agency.

currently abortion is allowed only in the case when the mother's life is in danger.

muiznieks, according to the Irish special strict abortion legislation has a ”chilling” effect on doctors, who must decide it, who will fill the suspension to the required criteria.

"It is an unfair system, because it does not actually affect the number of abortions.

If a woman can afford to travel, he will do so, so this leave only the poorest of women to fight for their rights in Ireland", Muiznieks said.
