A judicial review taken by a Northern Ireland woman accused of buying abortion pills online for her 15-year-old daughter has been adjourned. She is accused of procuring and supplying poison with the intent to cause a miscarriage in July 2013.
However, she is challenging the decision to prosecute her. If the prosecution goes ahead, the woman faces a criminal trial with the possibility of up to 10 years in prison.
