Marie Stopes private abortion clinic to open in Belfast
The first private clinic to offer abortions to women in Northern Ireland is due to open next week.
The service, run by Marie Stopes, will operate in the centre of Belfast from 18 October.
It says it will provide terminations within Northern Ireland's current legal framework - abortions are not illegal but are very strictly controlled.
An anti-abortion group has called for the clinic to be shut down, but Abortion Rights welcomed its opening.
