01 / 03 / 2013 - Amendment to Stop Marie Stopes killing unborn babies could be blocked
Assembly Member Anno Lo of the Alliance party has now also criticised the amendment that aims to stop Marie Stopes International from killing unborn children in Northern Ireland.
This follows the announcement from Caitriona Ruane that Sinn Fein opposes the amendment.
The amendment to the Criminal Justice Bill has been jointly tabled by DUP Assembly Member Paul Givan and SDLP Assembly Member Alban Maginness.
The aim of the amendment is to strengthen the law protecting unborn babies.
But Anno Lo has told the BBC that a "Petition of Concern" is circulating at Stormont to block the proposed amendment.
A "Petition of Concern" is a notice that must signed by at least 30 Assembly Members and presented to the Speaker signifying concern about any forthcoming matter on which the Assembly is due to vote.
Sinn Fein has 29 Assembly Members so the amendment could be blocked.
Contact your local Sinn Fein Assembly Member(s) by phone / email / or letter, and tell him/her that you are totally opposed to Marie Stopes International, and you want unborn babies and their mothers protected from abortion.
Even if you did not vote for a particular Sinn Fein member, she/he still has an obligation to listen to the views of all their constituents.
