‘It’s the right thing to do’: Jeremy Corbyn explains why he wants women in Northern Ireland to have equal abortion rights
‘Women should have the right to decide what happens to their body and not politicians’
“Women deserve a say”, says Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, talking to The Tab about his decision to campaign for women in Northern Ireland to have the right to safe, legal abortions.
In their manifesto Labour promised to extend legal abortion rights to Northern Ireland, where the maximum sentence for having a termination is life imprisonment. The 1967 Abortion Act, which assures legal and safe terminations to British women, has never applied in Northern Ireland, where women are still forced to make expensive and often traumatising visits to England to have an abortion.
Speaking to Bobby Palmer at The Tab, Jeremy The Boy Corbyn explained his inspiration for including the promise in Labour’s manifesto. He said: “It’s the right thing to do. Women should have the right to decide what happens to their body and not politicians.”
Cara Sanquest of the London-Irish Abortion Rights Campaign said: “This is a clear indication that the Labour Party recognises the rights of women in Northern Ireland.
“We strongly encourage other parties to follow suit.”
Corbyn added: “It’s shocking that women who are going through such a difficult time face either an illegal abortion that could be fatal or travelling to another country only to face repercussions when she returns home.
“Women deserve a say.”
