Action alert: Sign the open letter ahead of NI abortion debate on Monday

Following the win at the Northern Ireland Assembly on Tuesday, momentum is continuing to build for MPs and Peers to vote down the Northern Ireland abortion regulations at Westminster.

Yesterday, Sir Jeffrey Donaldson was granted an urgent question in the House of Commons regarding the abortion regulations for Northern Ireland. There were a number of excellent speeches from MPs who put pressure on the Government to hand back control of abortion law to the Northern Ireland Assembly. You can read more about these contributions on the digital news service on our website.

There will now be a debate on Monday in the Commons and the following week in the Lords, followed by votes at some stage soon after, where MPs and Peers will have the opportunity to vote down the regulations.


Ahead of the votes, Northern Irish Peer Baroness O’Loan and Northern Irish MP Carla Lockhart have launched an open letter to MPs and Peers in England, Wales and Scotland to ask them to vote against the regulations.

They are looking to get a very large number of people from Northern Ireland to support the letter by signing it. They will then be presenting the letter in the Houses of Commons and Lords.

Please add your name to the letter now by clicking the button below. It only takes 20 seconds.

If you are not from Northern Ireland, please do help out by sharing the letter on social media and with friends in Northern Ireland to help us get the word out and get as many people as possible adding their name to the letter.

Many thanks,
