UK Court dismisses challenge to Northern Ireland abortion law

"I'm very, very nervous but I'm hoping that the supreme court have listened to our voices and realised that the change is needed for women in Northern Ireland", said Ewart. But as Lord Kerr himself said, 'These findings do not represent a binding decision of the of the court.the essential decision of the court.is that the appeal is dismissed and no formal declaration of incompatibility has been made'. This is because the court found that the Northern Irish Human Rights Commission (the body that brought the case) did not have the power to bring these proceedings forward, as it was not itself a "victim' of any unlawful act".

The Court was deciding specifically whether this should be abolished in cases of rape, incest and fatal foetal abnormality.

According to data released yesterday by the United Kingdom government, the "number of Republic of Ireland residents having an abortion in England and Wales has also been declining since 2001, when 6,673 women had the procedure".

This article has been adapted from its original source. "As such, the court does not have jurisdiction to make a declaration of incompatibility in this case", the court said.

"Nor do they cite D v Ireland, where the European Court rejected an application claiming a right to access abortion in the case of fatal foetal abnormality.a decision which runs completely contrary to the Supreme Court's findings".

British prime minister Theresa May has said abortion should be a devolved issue for Northern Ireland.

EA Sports have since picked up the licence and it will feature in the upcoming game. "It puts you right in the middle of that Champions League experience".

The DUP is the biggest party in Northern Ireland and also props up May's minority government, giving her the votes she needs to get Brexit legislation through the House of Commons.

"If a woman takes an abortion pill and has prolonged heavy bleeding, bad pain, faints, or experiences other complications, we strongly encourage her to attend an Emergency Department or GP straight away".

"Hundreds of women travel to England to obtain the procedure in any given year, or risk prosecution by using illegal pills that induce a miscarriage". And the sea change in the south has also mobilized anti-abortion activists in Northern Ireland.

DUP MP Sir Jeffrey Donaldson said the NIHRC had questions to answer about the cost of taking the case and why "it made a decision to act beyond its competence in such a sensitive issue".

In May, the Republic of Ireland voted decisively in a referendum to reform the country's strict abortion laws, which had effectively banned all terminations. "Those responsible for ensuring the compatibility of Northern Irish law, will no doubt recognise and take account of these conclusions...by considering how to amend the law, in the light of the ongoing suffering being caused by it".

"It is so incredibly important to lobby for life at this present point in time because of the stark threat to unborn children here as Northern Ireland faces a great deal of political instability", said Precious Life, a pro-life group in Northern Ireland, in August 2017.
