Ireland votes resoundingly to repeal abortion ban. Ireland has voted an emphatic "Yes" to amend the country's constitution to enable legislation that would allow women to have an abortion in a historic and emotionally charged referendum.
With a high turnout Friday of 64.13%, 66.4% voted for the amendment, and 33.6% against, according to the country's Referendum Commission. The results Saturday defied earlier projections that it would be a tight race.
Only one county voted no -- the rural and religiously conservative Donegal in northwest Ireland. Ref. CNN.
