Ó hOisín welcomes High court ruling on Fatal Foetal Abnormality

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Ó hOisín has welcomed the High Court ruling today which recognised the gravity of the situation faced by women who become pregnant as a result of sexual crime and those dealing with fatal foetal abnormality.

Speaking today Mr Ó hOisín said:

“I welcome this ruling which recognises the gravity of the situation faced by women who become pregnant as a result of sexual crime and the very difficult issues faced by parents dealing with fatal foetal abnormality.

“Some parents want to continue with the pregnancy to full term, others feel unable to do this. It is my view that both require our help, support and compassion.

“No one should expect a woman and her family in these most traumatic of all circumstances, to have to travel to England to secure a termination of her pregnancy.

“We support the introduction of legislation in these limited circumstances.”
