Forced labor in Ireland has increased in recent years, with new estimates suggesting that over the past five years the number of women in labour was up by more than 300%.
The Irish Times has previously reported on the number, which has been a concern for both the government and the industry.
Last year, the Government commissioned an inquiry into the issue after more than 100 women told the inquiry they had been forced to have abortions, and it found that the vast majority of these pregnancies were unintended.
“A huge increase in the numbers of women being forced to undergo abortions has been found,” the report found.
In March, the Health Service Executive announced it was increasing its support for women who were pregnant as a result of sexual assault, as well as offering support for those who had experienced domestic violence.
