Petition in Nordirland (engl.)

Petition: Drop case against mother who provided daughter with abortion medication in Northern Ireland!

A woman is currently being charged under the 1861 Offences Against the Person Act for purchasing abortion medication on behalf of her daughter. If found guilty she could be imprisoned for up to five years.

Abortion is illegal in Northern Ireland except in extremely rare situations. 837 women from N.Ireland travelled to England in 2014 to have a safe, legal abortion. Others bought medication from the internet in order to induce an abortion at home.
