The campaign to decriminalise abortion across the UK

#NowforNI briefings

On Friday 25th May 2018, the Republic of Ireland voted to repeal the 8th Amendment to the Irish Constitution in a landslide. That vote will allow Irish women for the first time to access abortion services in their own country.

But women in Northern Ireland – part of the UK – do not have the same rights. That’s why BPAS is fighting alongside Alliance for Choice Northern Ireland, the Northern Ireland Family Planning Association, and Amnesty International Northern Ireland, London-Irish Abortion Rights Campaign and others to decriminalise abortion and allow Northern Irish bodies the ability to provide the best medical care for women within their own borders.
