Abortion

Asked about her views by a local church in the run-up to the 2014 by-election:

"Abortion is a very emotive issue, and I fully understand that people hold very strong views, both against abortion, and in favour of the law as it stands. I do not support a change in the current law, as I think any woman, who may be in a very difficult situation for a number of reasons, should have the right to choose. That days of ‘backstreet’ abortions are thankfully behind us, and I think a change in the law would risk a return to such practices. I understand people may have different views to me, and I fully respect their right to hold different views."[2]
