Health Minister Simon Harris has branded social media posts claiming to identify the location where the first abortion is taking place under new laws as "despicable".
Mr Harris argued that, in his view, the posts were effectively an attempt to "incite harassment of women". He said he is still committed to bring in legislation for safe access zones that would ban protests in the vicinity of medical facilities offering abortion services.
