We can no longer stand by while women in #NorthernIreland are forced to travel to England for abortion care during #covidー19, despite the fact abortion is now legal in NI.

That's why today we have launched a telemedical service to send NI women abortion pills by post. #NowForNI
We will run the service in collaboration with healthcare professionals in #NorthernIreland, for women up to 10 weeks of pregnancy.

Anyone in NI who needs our service can call 0300 500 8086 to arrange a teleconsultation with a doctor in Northern Ireland. #Pillsbypost #NowforNI
Abortion is now legal in Northern Ireland on request up to 12 weeks, but politicians have delayed commissioning services. We cannot stand by while the govt's NI Office gives reckless advice that women should travel to England for help despite #covidー19. #NowForNI

just released - consultation details on the new framework for abortion services in Northern Ireland - closing date 16th December 11.45pm…
the government "welcome comments from anyone in Northern Ireland with an interest or view, particularly those directly impacted by the current law and any proposed changes and health professionals, to inform the shape of legislation to be introduced by 31 March 2020."
The document emphasises the consultation is **not** seeking views on whether the Secretary of State should be exercising this duty in the first place, the ethics of the matter of abortion, nor the abortion framework in England, Scotland or Wales.

We are closer now than ever before to stories like this one becoming a dark part of NI history.

"My husband and I were expecting our second child. We were told at our 12 week scan at the end of August 2018 that there was a problem. They suspected that it was anencephaly. This is a fatal condition where the babies skull and brain do not develop.
Most of these pregnancies will continue to full-term and the babies will die during labour or within hours of being born. I couldn't fathom continuing with a pregnancy for another half of a year.

Last year, we shared sad and often traumatic stories of pregnant people taking arduous journies or obtaining illegal pills online in order to secure the termination they so desperately needed. This story is a little different. This is what your Yes did for one woman this year...
...”Last year I went to the booth, and without a second thought I ticked the Yes box. Never for one moment did I ever think that I would need that Yes myself...
I'm in my 40s with 3 very difficult pregnancies behind me and 2 children, one with disabilities. When our contraception failed and I discovered early in the new year that I was pregnant a black cloud fell over me...
