Less than a week ahead of the ribbon-cutting for Ireland's first-ever abortion clinic, Health Minister Edwin Poots (and let's all take a moment to appreciate that surname) has promised that the Marie Stopes Clinic "will be regulated one way or the other," and is taking legal advice on just how regulated the clinic will be. Speaking to the press Sunday morning, Poots said he was currently trying to determine whether or not the Regulation Quality and Improvement Authority, which already oversees a number of health organizations in Northern Ireland, could take on the role of keeping tabs on the Belfast abortion clinic. Ideally, he explained, the Department of Health, reaching with the long arm of the RQIA, would like to have ultimate oversight.
