What is Start?

Start is a collection of Doctors ( GPs, Obstetricians, Public Health Doctors and Psychiatrists )who originally came together during the campaigning to repeal the 8th amendment to the Constitution.

Following the electorates decision the group has now moved onto helping shape the pathway for crisis pregnancies in Ireland.We welcome new members from the medical profession.

We espouse a holistic Women's Health service for modern day Ireland. This includes a comprehensive contraception and sexual health service including abortion care.

The legislation has been enacted. We hope to input into this the resources needed to run an all- inclusive, safe, evidence based, free at the point of care, community based medical abortion service.
