An abortion drone is set to fly abortion pills from Ireland to Northern Ireland next week. The groups behind the plan claim it is an 'all-island act of solidarity between women in the north and the south'. They said it will "highlight the violation of human rights caused by the existing laws that criminalize abortion in both the north and south of Ireland". After the abortion drone flight, there will be a protest in front of the Court of Appeal in Belfast. That's to coincide with a decision by the High Court that on Northern Ireland's abortion law and the European Convention on Human Rights.
