The Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP) General Election manifesto was launched today.

The full Manifesto is available to read here, but below are extracts that relate to two subjects covered on the engaGE17 site dealt with by the SDLP Manifesto.

Abortion

“At Westminster the SDLP will continue to oppose any proposals to extend the 1967 Abortion Act to Northern Ireland.” (pg15)

Marriage

“The SDLP strongly supports LGBT+ rights. Not only did SDLP leader Colum Eastwood bring forward the first marriage equality motion to receive a majority in the Northern Ireland Assembly, we have also tabled a bill to legislate for marriage equality.” (pg14)
