Abortion act campaign in NI to begin

9th September 2008

Alliance for Choice spokesperson Barbara Muldoon said the law need to be changed: "Northern Ireland is already 41 years behind England, Scotland and Wales," she said. "(That's) something that really seems inconceivable, that women in Northern Ireland would be denied a right that their sisters elsewhere in the UK have."
