Northern Ireland politicians criticise UK government’s abortion proposals

In an open letter to the Belfast Telegraph, a group of notable cross-community politicians from Northern Ireland have criticised the UK Government’s proposals to legalise abortion in Northern Ireland.

The signatories, who include widely respected human rights expert Baroness O’Loan and DUP chief whip Sir Jeffrey Donaldson, say that the current proposals undermine devolution as they go far beyond what is legally required of the Government.

The letter comes after the Government launched a consultation on a new legal framework for abortion in Northern Ireland on 4 November.
