MPs step up pressure for Northern Ireland abortion reform
Cross-party calls for backing on plan to force May to intervene
Sat 2 Jun 2018
MPs are being canvassed to back a plan to force through measures liberalising abortion in Northern Ireland, it has emerged.
A cross-party coalition has drawn up a proposal that would force Theresa May into taking action. Some of the most senior women in the Tory party are said to be supportive of the campaign following the landslide result in Ireland’s referendum in favour of ending its near total ban on abortion.
