THE SDLP is a pro-life party and always has been. We oppose the extension of the 1967 Abortion Act to Northern Ireland. SDLP support women having the best support and medical advice during pregnancy.
It is curious that, at election time, those whose positions have been less clear seek to question the SDLP's commitment to our pro-life policy.
We will oppose any further proposal to extend Britain's abortion legislation. The SDLP will make that opposition clear in the Assembly, Westminster and Europe.
