Survey shows overwhelming support for abortion law reform in Northern Ireland

The Unionist leader met with Varadkar in Leinster House to discuss the effect Britain's exit from the European Union may have on our island.
Following talks in Downing Street with new Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, Mrs May said the terms of any arrangement between the Conservatives and the DUP would be made public once they were agreed.
After touring the wrecked and fire-blackened apartment block and ordering an inquiry, May returned to talks to try to seal a deal with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) to secure the backing of their 10 lawmakers in parliament to help her pass laws and govern as Britain starts talks to leave the EU.
"We want to see an administration set up again that will last and one that will last for all of the people of Northern Ireland", said Ms Foster outside Dublin's Government Buildings.
Addressing the Communist Party of Britain's executive committee, he declared that the DUP priority would be to gain more public money and reduce corporation tax on business profits to serve its own narrow interests in northern Ireland.
"As a UK Government we remain absolutely steadfast in our commitment to the Belfast Agreement, its successor agreements".
"They can't have it both way, it has to be dealt with sensibly".
Her comments follow warnings by the nationalist parties, Sinn Fein and the SDLP, and the cross-community Alliance Party, that a deal with the DUP would undermine the Government's attempts to restore the power-sharing executive at Stormont.
Senior DUP representative and former Stormont minister Simon Hamilton also struck a positive tone during a day that saw the first round table plenary session of a talks process that started last week.
The subsequent election in March saw the DUP take the most seats in the assembly, but their 28 was just one more than Sinn Féin.
He first met northern secretary James Brokenshire around noon and later they engaged in round-table talks with the North's five main parties.
He added: "We see no reason why devolution and the executive can't be up and running now". "I will be making that case tomorrow for example despite the fact that it should really be a First Minister and a Deputy First Minister there to meet Michel Barnier or others to make the case for Northern Ireland". We are working away at them and we will continue to work away at them.
Declan Kearney, the party's chairman, said a DUP focus on Ms Foster's future role at Stormont "is completely misdirected and premature".
