Sinn Féin will decide next Monday whether to hold a special national conference to decide if the party will back the Government proposal to allow unrestricted access to abortion during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
Party sources say there are differing opinions internally on whether Sinn Féin should take a position, including how any divisive debate could impact on leader Mary Lou McDonald.
