The HSE have offered information regarding Ireland's new abortion laws

There is also information regarding unplanned pregnancies, and what they people can do if they are in that situation.

1 January marks the date that it is completely legal to get an abortion in Ireland.

In early December, the Seanad followed the Dáil in passing the Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) Bill 2018. Abortions will now be legally available in Ireland from 1 January, 2019.

The Department of Health posted on their official Twitter account that: "Abortion services will be provided by the HSE, through GPs or family planning services, and in maternity units and hospitals across the country, from today. Abortion care will be free of charge to people who need it."

With this post, they provided information regarding unplanned pregnancies, and what they can do to help people in that situation.

The information states that: "An abortion is available for free through the HSE if you live in the Republic of Ireland.

"If you live outside the Republic of Ireland, you can have an abortion in the Republic of Ireland. But you will have to pay for it."

It also says that you can have an abortion if your pregnancy is no more than 12 weeks, and that after 12 weeks, you can only have an abortion in certain circumstances.

They also stated that: "Information and support on all your options, including continued pregnancy supports and abortion services. The My Options freephone line will be open from 1 January 2019 on 1800 828 010."
