British government plan to force North to speed up abortion services


The British government is planning to force Northern Ireland to speed up abortion services.

Westminster legalised pregnancy terminations in the North in October 2019, but Stormont hasn't brought the services in.

The Guardian reports the UK government will take action next week to direct the North to commission abortion services.

The DUP says it'll 'vigorously oppose' the plans, saying the North won't have the 'most liberal abortion laws in Europe' foisted upon it.
