NI: UK Will Exert as Much Power as Needed to Enforce Abortion Law

Northern Ireland's Secretary of State announced that more power will be extended into Northern Ireland to ensure the new abortion law is fully enacted. In an answer to a parliamentary question about how Westminster would ensure Northern Ireland complied with the new regulations, Secretary Robin Walker responded that the UK would provide full support to make sure the law is implemented: "The Government stands ready to provide whatever support we can to the Department of Health in Northern Ireland to commission full abortion services, in line with the new legislative framework, as soon as possible." Section 9 of the Northern Ireland Executive Formation Act 2019, changing a pro-life country's laws into one of the most extreme, went into effect on May 14. The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) are calling for a repeal of the policy, citing a poll indicating that 79% of Northern Ireland citizens oppose the new regime. "Pro-life politicians in the Conservative Party need to hold the Prime Minister accountable for this abuse of power and reject the Northern Ireland Abortion Regulations when they come before Parliament," said Liam Gibson, SPUC Northern Ireland Political Officer.
