Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin has defended his apparent U-turn on abortion, saying the testimony of "harrowing trauma" experienced by some Irish women changed his mind.
Mr Martin was in Belfast yesterday to attend the launch of a new book about the former SDLP leader John Hume's time in America. Also in attendance at the event was the SDLP's former Deputy First Minister Seamus Mallon.
