Statement by TUV leader Jim Allister:-
“The extension of the 1967 Abortion Act – which has seen over 8 million unborn denied the right to life – to Northern Ireland has long been opposed across the local community. Yet, appallingly, the Government at a stroke has facilitated its reach to our shores by offering its services free to Northern Ireland women.
“With the DUP now associated in government with those who made this decision, and having the facility of a “co-ordination committee”, we need to hear with absolute clarity what notice and/or discussion the DUP had with HMG on this issue. This back door circumvention of Northern Ireland’s settled rejection of the 1967 Act was high handed and deplorable.”
