The Irish cabinet is expected to take up will take up the report of the expert group on abortion to Cabinet on Tuesday.
The Irish Times said the country´s health minister James Reilly had confirmed this.
"I have read the report and I need to study it further. It's a hugely complex issue that has divided the country . . . and we're not going to solve it in a matter of weeks," Reilly was quoted as saying.
Making it clear hat this was not a decision to be taken hurriedly, he said it could be early 2013 before a government position was made clear.
