Changes In Irish Abortion Laws Could Promote False Rape Accusations

This ABCnews article discusses how proposed changes in Ireland's abortion laws (which currently outlaw abortion except to save a mother's life) could increase the number of false accusations of rape against men. The reasoning is once women are allowed to have abortions in cases of rape, some women will stoop to making a false accusation in order to get an abortion. This is a significant controversy, but I think it's especially notable that people are at least concerned about false accusations in Ireland and there is a dialogue going on about it.
