TÁNAISTE EAMON GILMORE has affirmed the government’s intention to introduce laws allowing abortion in circumstances where the life of the mother is at risk.Writing on TheJournal.ie this morning as his party marks two years in government, the Labour leader insists his party will oversee legislation to allow terminations within the criteria of the X Case within the rest of its time in government.“After 20 years of inaction, were going to legislate for the X case,” Gilmore writes, adding that Labour was also ensuring that the Constitutional Convention would be discussing the topic of amending the constitution to allow a referendum on same-sex marriage.Gilmore also pays tribute to the work being carried out by Labour’s front-bench ministers, arguing that each of them is pursuing significant reforms in their own ministerial briefs.“For the Labour Party, our Ministers are delivering. Joan Burton has retained core welfare payments and has embarked on major reforms of the welfare system.“Ruairi Quinn is driving an agenda of reform to school patronage. Brendan Howlin is delivering on a far reaching agenda of public service reform. Pat Rabbitte has published the first Affordable Energy Strategy and last week announced the establishment of an Energy Efficiency Fund.”Column: ‘Labour has brought Ireland from chaos to stability’
