People Before Profit women’s equality campaigner Becca Bor said:
“By voting overwhelmingly to support the decriminalisation of abortion in the North the Derry and Strabane Council has sent a powerful message for women’s equality.
The movement for the Right to Choose is now unstoppable in the North and South. The women of Ireland are united in asserting their right to control their own bodies.
Pro-choice campaigners in Derry and Strabane mobilised to make sure this motion passed. Just like South, people power made the difference and is the key to winning our demand for justice.
The political establishment must take note and legislate for equality immediately.”
