title : Abortion Still Illegal In Northern Ireland After Contentious Legislative Vote, Issue to Be Explored
summary : Abortion in Northern Ireland will remain illegal after assembly members voted down proposed legislation on Wednesday that would allow pregnancy terminations due to "fatal fetal abnormality." Unlike the rest of the United Kingdom, the 1967 Abortion Act does not extend to Northern Ireland where termination is only accepted if the mother's life is in danger, or if there is a risk of permanent or serious damage to her mental and physical health.
