BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND - APRIL 07: A Pro Life campaigner displays a plastic doll representing a 12 week old foetus as she stands outside the Marie Stopes Clinic on April 7, 2016 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The anit abortion supporters have protested outside the clinic where women can go for advice concerning terminating their pregnancy since it opened in 2012. The abortion laws in Northern Ireland are in the news again after a 21 year old Northern Irish woman was convicted and sentenced earlier this week for procuring a miscarriage. The woman who cannot be named for legal reasons had pleaded guilty to two charges of procuring her own abortion by using a poison and of supplying a poison with intent to procure a miscarriage, she was ten-twelve weeks pregnant at the time. She was given a three-month prison sentence by Judge David McFarland at Belfast high court, which was suspended for two years. Unlike the rest of the United Kingdom, the law in Northern Ireland rules that terminating a pregnancy is illegal except in very limited circumstances. (Photo by Charles McQuillan/Getty Images)
