Northern Ireland abortion & marriage

These are incredibly delicate areas of law and, regardless of the views of individual MPs, are treated with the utmost rigour. This is particularly true in the case of abortion, and my view is that it should be legal, safe and happen as rarely as possible. 

 

I voted to give politicians in the province the opportunity to make the decision locally, as I believe that any future reform of abortion and marriage law must be decided by the people of Northern Ireland and their locally-elected politicians.
