Politicians in Strasbourg have rejected a report which asked governments to make sure financial difficulties are not a barrier if a woman wants to terminate her pregnancy.
The report also called for abortion services to be made "legal, safe, and accessible to all" in the public health systems of every EU member state.
However, a narrow majority of MEP's voted against the proposal with eight of the 12 Irish MEP's opposing it.
