A bill is going through the British parliament the stated intention of which was, as far as I understand, to push back the date on which elections need to be held in Northern Ireland and require the Secretary of State to report on the progress in establishing a Northern Ireland Executive. As you may or may not know, the Northern Ireland devolved assembly and government have not been functioning for the past couple of years or so.

Amendments to this bill were passed in the House of Commons last week, one of which would see a very liberal abortion law foisted on Northern Ireland unless an executive is up and running by the 21 October. All the Northern Ireland members that have taken their seat at Westminster (Sinn Fein has not) apparently voted against the abortion amendment. Another would introduce same-sex marriage if the executive has not been formed by the same date.

These are devolved matters and also outside the scope of the bill.

It's going through a stage at the House of Lords tomorrow, and they may be able to stop the abortion amendment. There is also a petition to the Prime Minister.

Please pray.

It's important to note that Sinn Fein is pro-abortion, this is what they want for Northern Ireland:

Quote:
On the day of the [abortion] referendum result in Dublin, Mrs O'Neill [leader of Sinn Fein in NI] and [Sinn Fein] party president Mary Lou McDonald held up a sign stating that the "north is next".

Yes, the part in brackets was more to point out that this would not include Sinn Fein. They would presumably have voted differently from the other Northern Irish MPs had they been present.

If I understand this correctly, if this is passed by Parliament then the NI assembly could prevent its implementation in NI, but Sinn Fein can prevent the NI assembly from meeting as they have for the past two years.

Amazing that they fought for so long to throw off the British yoke but are now willingly yoking themselves to the UK in the name of liberalism.

You've got that right.

I don't understand what you mean. How are Sinn Fein "willingly yoking themselves to the UK"?

Wasn't there a member with a disability who spoke against the disability clause? Who was that?
