Government Ministers will debate new abortion laws today.
They'll discuss the Oireachtas Committee report on the 8th amendment which was published just before Christmas.
The opinion of the Cabinet is split on what to do about abortion.
At least seven ministers are known to be in favour of the committee recommendations to allow abortion without restriction for 12 weeks.
However, there are dissenters who will likely make their views clear in the coming days.
Some are concerned about the political fallout if they back the measures.
The Taoiseach has said he wants a referendum in May, and the Dáil will need to move quickly when it returns next week if they want to achieve that.
First, however, the measure has to get through the Cabinet debate today.
Health Minister Simon Harris will present his plans for a referendum and the new laws that could come in.
While ministers will all likely support the holding of a referendum to repeal the 8th amendment, what way they'll vote and whether they support the committee recommendations is quite a different matter.
