3. liberalising of the abortion laws...just look at the UK mainland and the HUGE increases in abortions and teenage preganancies.pro-choice said:3. As "ordinary politics" emerge in the North people will start to look for the evidence base to decide on these issues rather than a sectarian head count. So for example the polical parties will have to response to evidence that liberalising abortion has no effective on the abortion rate (see the stats on Swizterland and The Netherlands) or that more effective ways to reduce the abortion rate is to focus on access to sex education (not a compulsory subject in the UK) and access to contraception (see the huge reduction in the Russian abortion rate when contraception was improved).
4. Of course this issue will be more difficult for those who wish to maintain the union with Britain. They must either accept that the laws of the UK apply to them if they don't think the UK laws apply to them - Well that makes them ........... I'm not sure - northern Ireland nationalists, free staters, or confused.
4. why will it be more difficult - it makes us devolutionists, Scotland has had different laws ALWAYS, NI has many different laws to the England and Wales.
