NORTHERN IRELAND WOMAN WHO BOUGHT ABORTION PILLS CHALLENGES PROSECUTION

Ekklesia on 6th November reported that a mother who bought her then 15-year-old daughter abortion pills online will appear in court to challenge a decision by the Public Prosecution Service in Northern Ireland to prosecute her.  The ground-breaking case will focus attention on the criminalisation of abortion in Northern Ireland.  It is the first-time the Public Prosecution Service (PPS) has been challenged on a decision relating to Northern Ireland’s restrictive abortion law.
