Abortion Petition

With the advance of technology, it's amazing to see how democratic politics keeps pace. Rather than organising grassroots meetings in the villages and towns, people can now go directly to the Prime Minister to tell him their grievances. You may be aware of the e-petitions section on the 10 Downing Street website already, but I want to tell you about a petition which I hope you might sign, and tell your friends about as well.

The 1967 Abortion Act allowed for abortions in England, Scotland and Wales, but because Northern Ireland had its own Parliament at that time, it wasn't introduced in Northern Ireland. Now there is increasing pressure on the government to extend the 1967 Abortion Act to Northern Ireland, despite the opposition of the main political parties here. Here's a recent report from the Newsletter on the subject.

I hope you will support this petition and sign it online. You can do so by clicking here.

Thank you in advance for your time, and for your support.
