Ireland will hold a referendum on whether abortion should be legalized on May 25, Irish Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy announced Wednesday.

Legalizing abortion requires a change to the Irish constitution.

"I've just signed the order for polling day on the referendum on repealing the 8th amendment to the constitution," Murphy tweeted.

The amendment places the right to life of an unborn child on equal footing with the mother's right to life.
