British government would have backed down on abortion if Sinn Féin had spoken up ()
[link removed]

On Tuesday, the British government published regulations to compel the Northern Ireland Executive to implement the abortion law foisted on the North by the Westminster parliament in 2019.

The parliament voted back then to impose wide-ranging abortion on the North during the period that the Northern Ireland Assembly was suspended.

Since then, the DUP and others have opposed giving effect to the new law as they argue abortion is a devolved issue that should be decided by the Northern Assembly and not Westminster. Abortion is one of the issues that was devolved to the Northern Executive following the Good Friday Agreement.

Before Boris Johnson’s government made its announcement on Tuesday, the DUP warned that the move would “represent a very serious breach of the devolution settlement.”

Half of country’s maternity hospitals not carrying out abortions, and public consultation process announced as part of ‘3-Year Review’ of abortion law ()
[link removed]
It was confirmed this week that half of the country’s maternity hospitals are still not carrying out abortions, two years on from the legislation being passed opening the door to abortion. The Government and Department of Health are fully aware that many of the obstetricians working in these hospitals don’t regard abortion as ‘healthcare’ in any, way shape or form.

It is a very delicate matter therefore trying to impose abortion on these hospitals as the last thing the Government want is senior obstetricians making public statements challenging the line being touted by abortion supporters that abortion is healthcare.

In a letter to the Oireachtas Health Committee this week, the secretary general of the Department of Health confirmed that efforts were being made to ensure the rollout of abortion in all 19 maternity units across the country but he stated that the Covid pandemic had impacted the ability of the Department to engage in face-to-face meetings with staff in the relevant hospitals on the issue of abortion access.

New Congresswoman reveals she was almost aborted ()
[link removed]
Florida congresswoman Kat Cammack has revealed that she was almost aborted after her mother was pressured by doctors and family members not to continue the pregnancy.

Cammack is one of 18 pro-life women elected to the US House of Representatives for the first-time last November. She says being pro-life isn’t just of matter of policy for her – it’s personal.

Her mother was advised on health grounds to abort her baby but refused. Cammack was born perfectly healthy and her mother suffered none of the medical complications predicted by her doctor.

Cammack says: “I can’t imagine my mom at the time, single mother, scared, and her own mom telling her to abort.” But in the end as the new congresswoman puts it, “she chose life.”
