Last week we were assured by the News Letter that “the DUP is changing”:
“At the DUP manifesto launch on Tuesday, Peter Robinson confirmed to the News Letter that his MLAs are likely to be given a free vote on David Ford’s bill to allow for abortion in cases where it is judged that the unborn child could not survive outside the womb”
Judging by Peter Robinson’s comments on The View last night this ‘analysis’ was far from accurate.
Jane Christie, the mother of Sarah Ewart, appeared on the Stephen Nolan show this morning to tell of her “devastation”
at Mr. Robinson’s statement.
It is time that the DUP stopped playing politics on this sensitive subject and allowed a free and open debate in the Northern Ireland Assembly.
