Northern Ireland abortion regulations

Press releases  •  5 June 2020  •  1 min read



Marie Stopes UK joins a group of professional medical bodies, service providers, and human rights organisation involved with establishing, advocating for, and providing abortion reform and services within Northern Ireland.

The Northern Irish abortion regulations are being debated on Monday 8th June. Abortion is legal in Northern Ireland. The regulations should finally establish a framework of provision. If these regulations are voted down, there is a high chance that current provision will cease and women will be unable to access abortion care in Northern Ireland at all.

With the dangers of and restrictions on travel between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK as a result of Covid-19, this will mean women may be unable to access abortion care at all and be forced to continue with unwanted pregnancies.
