Abortion row case woman agrees to have baby

The High Court in Dublin has been told a case involving a man who tried to stop his girlfriend travelling to the UK for an abortion has been withdrawn.

The man went to court earlier this week claiming his girlfriend's family was forcing her to have an abortion.

He wanted the court to order a psychiatric assessment to establish if she was acting of her own free will.

It is understood she now plans to continue with her pregnancy and the man is happy to withdraw the case.

The couple embraced outside court after the hearing.
