The Irish constitution currently bans abortion. Today the Irish will vote on whether this should change. According to the polls, the advocates of liberalisation, which the government and parliament also support, have a slight lead. Commentators describe the mood before the vote and how this once deeply Catholic country is rethinking its values.
