Rome Newsroom, Jun 2, 2020 / 09:15 am (CNA).- Bishops in Northern Ireland have strongly backed a call by a campaigner with Down syndrome to reject a law permitting abortion up to birth on grounds of disability. 

The bishops spoke out ahead of a June 2 debate on the law which was imposed by authorities in Westminster on Northern Ireland.

The Northern Ireland Assembly will debate Tuesday whether the practice of late-term abortion in the case of disability imposed by the Westminster parliament should be overturned, in response to an appeal from Heidi Crowter, a 24-year-old woman with Down syndrome who advocates for disability rights.
