Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar says Catholic hospitals will be required to perform abortions once the procedure is legalized. Voters overwhelmingly repealed the constitution's ban on abortion, and lawmakers are drafting enabling legislation. Varadkar says individual doctors and nurses will not be required to perform abortions but hospitals will not be exempt from the law.
