Abortion laws in Northern Ireland breach human rights according to a landmark ruling made by Belfast High Court last Thursday.
A Belfast woman Sarah Ewart brought the case after being denied a termination of her pregnancy in 2013.
She had been informed by doctors that her unborn child had a serious brain defect which would most likely result in death before or after birth.
Ms Ewart then had to travel to London instead for the termination.
And now Judge Justice Siobhan Keegan has ruled that Northern Ireland's abortion laws are not compatible with Article 8 of the European Convention of Human Rights.
Sinn Fein President Michelle O'Neill commended Ms Ewart for her "bravery and determination" and reiterated the "urgent need for reform of the laws" in Northern Ireland where not even rape, incest or foetal abnormalities are currently legal grounds for a termination.
