Abortion clash ahead

The Observer is reporting that among the measures pro-abortion MPs are planning for the upcoming Westminster fight, is abortion on demand and its full extension to Northern Ireland. The Roman Catholic Church has already discused opposition to such moves with the DUP and the church spokesperson, Rev Tim Bartlett predicts strong opposition from the nationalist community:

Nationalists and republicans would regard this move as imposition of a deeply unpopular piece of legislation on them by a British parliament.

Meanwhile the MPs and communion row has reached Australia.
