The Bishop of Elphin doesn't agree legislation should be introduced to prevent gatherings outside surgeries provide abortion care.
Bishop Kevin Doran's comments come following the publication of a statement issued by bishops across the country on 'Abortion: Changing the Narrative'.
The statement also takes into account the recent review, commissioned by the Government, of abortion legislation introduced following the referendum.
The Review recommends that legislation be introduced to provide for "safe access zones", to prevent any presence which "would reasonably influence a person's decision to have a termination of pregnancy or provide the service within the vicinity of any centre providing abortion.
Bishop Doran believes a person's right to peaceful assemble should not be limited.
'We have a single narrative in society at the moment which is that abortion is acceptable without any reason given and without any examination of the circumstances and that nobody can really question that . That nobody can conscientiously object to it and nobody can protest about it and we have a different narrative. The idea of introducing a law to stop people from influencing other people I mean come on.'
