Northern Ireland abortion law a breach of human rights commitments, court rules
Northern Ireland’s strict abortion law breaches the UK’s human rights commitments, the High Court in Belfast has ruled.
Sarah Ewart, 29, was refused a termination in 2013.
Instead, she travelled to a London clinic to end her pregnancy after doctors said her unborn child would die in the womb or shortly after birth.
Mrs Justice Siobhan Keegan said: “In my view her personal testimony is compelling.”
