Ireland has voted to repeal its ban on abortion, nearly 30 years after the country outlawed the practice.
Hundreds of thousands of voters took part in the national referendum, and exit polls showed 68 percent of respondents favored the repeal.
Ireland has long opposed the procedure; however, the country began gradually changing its laws to allow abortion when the pregnancy posed a threat to the life of the mother.
Friday’s vote garnered international attention from Irish citizens living abroad, with some even flying-in to cast a ballot.
The final results of the referendum will be announced later today.
