Serious abortion threat coming to Parliament on Tuesday – contact your MP

Last night (4 July) a group of MPs brought forward a number of amendments to the Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill which will proceed through all Commons stages early next week (8/9 July).

These amendments are designed to attempt to introduce abortion to Northern Ireland.

It also likely that they will attempt to introduce more amendments on Tuesday morning. Based on past amendments brought forward on this issue it is expected these amendments will be attempting to remove sections 58 and 59 of the Offences Against The Person Act for Northern Ireland which would introduce abortion on demand, for any reason, up to 28 weeks to Northern Ireland.

This would leave Northern Ireland with one of the most extreme abortion laws in the world. 100,000 people are alive today because of Northern Ireland’s abortion law. It is vital that this amendment does not pass.
