Department of Justice, Northern Ireland - consultation on amending the criminal law on abortion

Published: 16th January 2015

The Northern Ireland Department of Justice seeks a change in the law that would permit abortion in cases where the unborn baby has a 'lethal fetal abnormality'. Further, the Department is also considering doing so in relation to cases of rape and incest. Finally, they are considering if there should be a right to conscientious objection for those asked to participate in such procedures, if legalised. They are now consulting with the public on whether the law should be changed.
