The House of Commons Women and Equalities Committee has launched an Inquiry into Abortion Law in Northern Ireland. CMF has made a submission
The existing abortion law in NI recognises that two lives are involved in an abortion - those of the mother and of her unborn child. Every woman, finding out that she is pregnant, knows intuitively that she is carrying a person - a person with a right to a welcome in her womb and eventually into the world. Deliberately to terminate the life of her child is an act of desperation, running counter to intuitive instincts to protect it. As it stands, the abortion law in NI protects both the unborn child from destruction and the mother from a decision she may otherwise regret.
