In a statement released this afternoon, the hospital said that its priority is to be at the frontier of compassion, concern and clinical care for all its patients.
In August, a member of the hospital's board of governors, Fr. Kevin Doran told the Irish Times that it could not comply with the Act.
The Mater is one of 25 "appropriate institutions" named in the Act where abortions may be carried out to save the life of a pregnant woman.
A spokesman for the hospital said the decision to comply with the law came after a period of studying the legislation.
