Megan Fearon MLA said:

“This evening myself and my colleague and Sinn Féin health spokesperson in the south, Louise O’Reilly TD, hosted a delegation of campaign groups and service providers to meet with Minister for Health Simon Harris on All-Ireland access to abortion.

“The meeting with the Minister for Health was very constructive for us and for the campaign groups and service providers, which included Alliance for Choice, Royal College Midwives, The Family Planning Association, and Amnesty NI.

“The campaign groups outlined their concerns to Minister Harris and the Minister reiterated his commitment to ensuring access for all women on the island to abortion care.

“Sinn Féin will continue to keep this issue to the fore, north and south.

“We will work hand in hand with campaign groups and service providers to ensure access to quality and safe abortion care for all women on this island."
