Shami Chakrabarti responds to Theresa May’s comments on abortion rights

Shami Chakrabarti, Labour’s Shadow Attorney General, responding to Theresa May’s comments on abortion rights, said:

“Theresa May needs to focus on deeds not words. Labour has been calling on her to immediately begin consulting with the parties in Northern Ireland to protect the fundamental rights of all women there.

“She has yet to meet this basic feminist test but we urge her now to rise above party politics, move to the right side of history and work with us to reform a most cruel and degrading law.”
