Politicians must trust women over abortion

Following the High Court abortion ruling today, Wednesday, 16 December 2015, deputy leader of the Green Party Clare Bailey said,

“Today’s landmark ruling from the High Court demonstrates that Northern Ireland’s archaic law on abortion is incompatible with human rights.

“We now need our politicians to step up and trust women to make their own decisions and not have decisions imposed on them due to having no choice.

“Politicians need to take action to ensure our laws do not contravene international human rights.

“Mature and sensible debate, which puts women at the centre of decision-making, is needed, rather than barbaric laws.”
