    This dataset contains transcripts of qualitative interviews conducted with health care professionals and activists in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and England as part of a study of the Liverpool-Ireland Abortion Corridor. The LIAC is a historically and culturally constituted pathway enabling women living on the island of Ireland access to abortion services. The research was conducted in 2016, at which time abortion was still heavily restricted in RoI/NI and the majority of women had to either travel elsewhere for services or import 'abortion pills' illegally. The interviews were semi-structured and conducted by two researchers.
