Fresh legal challenge to abortion law.
Byline: REBECCA BLACK
BY REBECCA BLACK A FRESH legal challenge against Northern Ireland's abortion laws has been mounted.
Sarah Ewart is applying for a judicial review, seeking a declaration of incompatibility with human rights law.
Five years ago, she travelled from Northern Ireland for a termination in England after a 20-week scan revealed her baby had anencephaly, which meant its brain and skull had not developed and it would either die before being born or shortly afterwards.
Ms Ewart said: "Five years ago, I didn't think I would still be fighting now, but we are going to go all the way, we are part of the UK, the same laws should apply here."
