(FOX NEWS) – In a historic vote, Ireland has chosen overwhelmingly to repeal a constitutional ban on abortions, election officials announced Saturday.
Irish voters approved the repeal by a vote of 66.4 percent to 33.6 percent–with more than 2.1 million votes cast, according to the official tally.
At 64.5 percent, the turnout was one of the highest ever recorded for a referendum in Ireland and the highest of any referendum since 1992, The Journal reported.
