Testimony before the Joint Committee on the Constitution (Chomhchoiste ar an mBunreacht)
Parliament of Ireland (Tithe an Oireachtais)
3 May, 2000
During hearings considering the abortion law in Ireland, the Joint Committee heard from Dr. Declan Keane, Master of the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street. This is the biggest maternity hospital in Europe, with over 8,000 births annually. One of the questions put to Dr. Keane elicited comments about the extent of conscientious objection among Irish gynaecologists.
