DUP First Minister Peter Robinson has said a bid to change Northern Ireland's abortion law is "doomed". Justice Minister David Ford is proposing to change the law to permit terminations in cases of fatal fetal abnormality - where the baby is deemed to have no chance of survival. Peter Robinson said last week his party's MLAs would have a free vote on the issue. Stephen talks to Jane Christie, she is the mother of Sarah Ewart. Sarah got in touch with the Nolan Show in 2013. She wanted to highlight her experience of having to travel from Northern Ireland to England for an abortion because her baby had no chance of survival.
