As you may have heard, the abortion amendment (NC10) that was brought forward to the Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill was passed by 332 – 99.
If the amendment is successful in forcing the UK Government to remove sections 58 and 59 of the Offences Against The Person Act, this would introduce abortion on demand, for any reason, up to 28 weeks to Northern Ireland.
This could also have repercussions for the operation of sections 58 and 59 in England and Wales, possibly resulting in widespread changes to abortion legislation in these parts of the UK, removing almost all legal safeguards around abortion.
You can see how your MP voted by using the function we have set-up on our website by clicking the button below.
You will also have the option of sending a short letter to your MP to thank them if they voted the right way and to let them know your disappointment if they voted the wrong way. Giving this feedback to your MP is very important as it could impact how they vote on abortion in the future.
