The call to change Northern Irelandís abortion law

ZoŽ is among a large number of female public figures whoíve joined human rights charity Amnesty Internationalís call for the UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, to support the decriminalisation of abortion in Northern Ireland.

In anticipation of the issue being raised in Parliament today, ZoŽ and the other women involved in the campaign have signed an open letter to the PM. ĎWomen in the UK shouldnít have their rights denied simply because of the region they live in,í emphasises the letter. ĎAn affront to women in Northern Ireland hurts us all,í it adds.

More than 50,000 members of the public have signed a petition, also organised by Amnesty International, with the same aim.
