SDLP can't even get support of its own MLAs

THE SDLP says it is pro-life; a claim contradicted by recent voting records of its Stormont MLAs.

In an attempt to prevent the opening of a private abortion clinic in Belfast, Alban Maginness co-sponsored an amendment to a Justice Bill. Half his MLA party colleagues failed to register a supporting vote. So, when it comes to pro-life and pro-family issues, the SDLP is half-hearted. Conversely, it expressed whole-hearted support for 'same-sex marriage'.
