Very proud of Alliance Party colleagues, Anna Lo especially as well as Green Party MLA Steven Agnew in ensuring that this draconian amendment was not written into law. Whilst the Petition of Concern is not the most ideal mechanism, I am glad that Sinn Fein triggered it in order to prevent poor legislation from being enshrined in the Criminal Justice Bill. Regulation, support and oversight needed, not criminalisation. The legalisation of abortion on demand was not the order of the day, and Alliance remains committed to maintaining that neither pro-life or pro-choice is a defined policy, despite how several DUP and SDLP MLAs attempted to twist the debate.

Given the ramping up of charged dialogue between the pro-life and pro-choice campaigns in NI over the proposed amendment on the Criminal Justice Bill, I thought I would re-post a piece I wrote back in October 2012 on this very issue.
