PM has responsibility to women in Northern Ireland

by Steve Beasant on 5 June, 2018

Speaking ahead of the emergency debate today in the House of Commons on Northern Ireland’s abortion law, Liberal Democrat MP Christine Jardine said: 

“Women in Northern Ireland are now the only women across the UK that are denied their fundamental right to choose. It is simply appalling that abortion is still treated as a criminal rather than a medical issue in 2018.

“In the absence of a government in Northern Ireland, Theresa May has a responsibility to act for these women. She cannot remain silent.

“If she is indeed a feminist, the Prime Minister would ensure women across the UK are treated equally. Perhaps, however, she must instead dance to the DUP’s tune.”
