Dr Lisa Cameron raises concerns about the impact of Northern Ireland’s extreme abortion proposals on families with Down’s syndrome children

Dr Lisa Cameron, who received hundreds of abusive messages and a threat of deselection for voting against imposing extreme abortion legislation in Northern Ireland, raised concerns from the Don’t Screen Us Out community who are particularly concerned about the scope of the regulations and the impact on families with Down’s syndrome children.

She said:

“I have been chair of the disability all-party parliamentary group for the last two parliamentary terms, and I have been contacted by the Don’t Screen Us Out community, who are particularly concerned about the scope of the regulations and the impact on families with Down’s syndrome children. I hope that the Minister will comment on whether there has been consultation with that group, because, as I am sure the hon. Lady would agree, that would be very helpful.”
