Last night's Late Late Show showed a multitude of opinions on the repealing of the 8th amendment

THE HOTLY anticipated debate that featured on Ryan Tubridy's couches was talked about all through Friday night.

Ryan Tubridy called on both sides with opinions on the 8th amendment, some of the view to repealing it and others wishing to keep it in the constitution.

The 8th amendment currently holds a 14-year jail sentence for any Irish woman wishing to have an abortion or caught trying to deliberately cause one.

The people wishing to see the amendment removed included Dr Peter Boylan, formerly of the national maternity hospital in Holles Street, who spoke of patients he'd treated who had suffered under the 8th amendment.
