Labour/Co-operative MP for Walthamstow
Labour and Co-operative MP Stella Creasy calls on UK politicians to "get their house in order" and repeal the Offences Against the Persons Act 1861 which means that abortion in Northern Ireland is criminalised by life in prison, even in cases of fatal foetal abnormalities, rape or incest.
It is Theresa May's reliance on the DUP which is stopping women from getting access to abortions in Northern Ireland, rather than the intricacies of devolution, argues Stella Creasy.
Stella Creasy says today, by voting for the amendment to the Finance Bill on a PFI windfall tax, parliament has a chance to show the public that when politicians make mistakes, they recognise the necessity is not to find someone to blame but to put things right.
