More than 100 medical abortions have been carried out in Northern Ireland since new laws came into force earlier this year.

A total of 129 terminations took place here between March 31 and May 22.

The figure was revealed by Health Minister Robin Swann after an Assembly question from DUP MLA Paul Givan.
