Council of Ministers in London

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain said on Thursday it planned to take legislative action to ensure abortion services are in place in Northern Ireland, following what it called “the inaction” of the provincial health department and its currently decentralized executive.

“It is absolutely unacceptable that the executive and the Ministry of Health have failed women and girls, which means that they currently cannot access the same basic abortion care that is available to women and girls in the rest of the UK,” UK Minister for Northern Ireland Brandon Lewis said. , mentioned.

“That’s why I’m taking action to remove any other barriers to service delivery.”
