ABORTIONS PERFORMED IN THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND IN 2021
This year, the Abortion Report is quite a mess. It seems that a number of abortion providers
did not complete their obligatory reports to the Department of Health, but most did submit
their invoices to the HSE. Accordingly, reports received showed 4,577 abortions but
according to fees paid, the Department reckons there were 6,700 abortions in 2021 compared to 6,666 in 2019 and 6,577 in 2020. In 2021 there were 206 more abortions on residents from the Republic performed in England.
