Women in Northern Ireland have rights too


PM has responsibility to women in Northern Ireland

 

Speaking ahead of the emergency debate today in the House of Commons on Northern Ireland's abortion law, Liberal Democrat MP Christine Jardine said: 

“Women in Northern Ireland are now the only women across the UK that are denied their fundamental right to choose. It is simply appalling that abortion is still treated as a criminal rather than a medical issue in 2018.

 
“In the absence of a government in Northern Ireland, Theresa May has a responsibility to act for these women. She cannot remain silent.
 
“If she is indeed a feminist, the Prime Minister would ensure women across the UK are treated equally. Perhaps, however, she must instead dance to the DUP’s tune.”
