SPUC in Northern Ireland goes to court to challenge abortion guidelines

SPUC in Northern Ireland is going to court to challenge government guidelines on abortion. Liam Gibson of SPUC Northern Ireland says: "The law in Northern Ireland not only safeguards the lives of unborn children but also protects women from the terrible damage which abortion can cause. By issuing guidance that distorts the law, the department of health has created a grave threat to unborn children, to the safety of women and to the rights of medical professionals." You can read more about our challenge in an SPUC press release, which includes links to relevant documents.
