The Pro-Life campaign has described the 'abortion pill bus' currently touring the country as a "cheap publicity stunt".
The bus, which is promoting access to safe, medical terminations, has stopped in Cork city and will travel to Dublin later for a pro-choice rally.
The pro-life movement is criticising the involvement of Anti-Austerity Alliance TD Ruth Coppinger, who is supporting the bus tour.
Spokesperson Cora Sherlock said the issue of abortion should be treated more seriously.
“The abortion pill bus over the past few days is a cheap publicity stunt and I think that it is appalling that something so serious as abortion would be reduced to a stunt," Ms Sherlock said.
"And I think that Deputy Coppinger needs to take on board that abortion is a complex and serious issue and should not be treated in such a flippant manner.”
