Abortion: Precious Life calls for appeal in case of woman who took drugs to end pregnancy

An anti-abortion group has said it has called for the case of a woman given a suspended prison sentence after buying drugs online to terminate pregnancy to be brought to the appeals court.

On Monday, Belfast Crown Court heard the 21-year old woman could not afford to travel to England for a termination.

Precious Life described the sentence as "very lenient".

BBC News NI Health Correspondent Marie-Louise Connolly reports.
