Brady explains Sinn Féin opposition to Criminal Justice Bill amendment
Sinn Féin MLA Mickey Brady, who sits on the committee for Health, Social Services and Public Safety has explained why the party along with Alliance and the Green Party opposed the amendment to the Criminal Justice Bill.
“Unfortunately this amendment, which was introduced at the last minute, was not about protecting women’s health, it was about undermining a pregnant women’s ability to receive emergency treatment in life threatening circumstances.
“This is why we opposed the amendment. This is a view that is shared by parties and individuals across the Assembly chamber, not just Sinn Féin.
Brady added, “We are also opposed to the making of legislation on important sensitive issues in this way. Any proposal on such an important matter should be fully consulted on publicly rather than treated as an add-on to another legislative process.”
