Submission to Parliament on Abortion in Northern Ireland

This submission to Parliament’s Women and Equalities Committee opposing the Westminster Parliament legislating on abortion for Northern Ireland was made on 8 December 2018 but was not published at that time due to the rules of the Committee.  The Committee’s Report has now issued and is on Parliament’s website (www.parliament.uk).  The Report contains within it a “minority report” proposed by Eddie Hughes MP which reflects some of the views in our submission.
