Labour still in the running
The Catholic Herald reports, here, that the Labour idea of legislating to extend abortion in Northern Ireland has been 'watered down'.
This is a good thing, but you can't help thinking that things which were not in manifestos (anyone remember gay 'marriage') can suddenly be pushed through. Now it is "we will work with the Assembly to extend that right to women in Northern Ireland". Not, presumably, female babies.
Let's hope that Labour's 'for the many, not the few' will extend to full human rights for those in the womb.
