Abortion robots confiscated by police for distributing pills at Belfast protest
May 31, 2018
Two robots delivering abortion pills at a protest in Belfast have been confiscated by police.
The robots were part of an initiative by the group Women on Waves, who claimed that the country's "mediaeval" anti-abortion laws were being broken because the so-called abortion robots were being operated from the Netherlands.
"We try to find legal loopholes to draw attention to laws that violate women's rights," Rebecca Gomperts, a spokesperson for Women on Waves, told The Independent.
