Amnesty International: Abortion Services in Northern Ireland ‘Postcode Lottery’

February 27, 2015

(BBC) – Amnesty International has said it is a postcode lottery when it comes to how women in Northern Ireland can access legal abortions, including counselling services. In a report it is also highly critical of the current law, including the lack of guidance for cases of lethal foetal abnormality.┬áNorthern Ireland’s abortion law differs from the rest of the UK. It is only allowed in very restricted circumstances.
