Fair enough. And I agree.
Bad enough on any issue to have divergence, but on something fundamental like this. Eesh.

You think the optics of arguing against a campaigner with Downs herself plays into this?
Or just a political calculation based on the SF vote being more strictly Catholic up there?
I wouldn't profess to know enough about the situation in NI to speak with authority but I did see it suggested that there was a degree of cynicism to the move, as in they tabled an amendment the DUP won't support, they won't support what the DUP proposed so they can signal to the section of their support that is pro-life that they tried to get something done to prevent abortion but whaddaya gonna do? The DUP won't play ball. I've no clue how accurate that is.

That sounds a lot more convoluted than what I was thinking, so given that it's the north, it's probably spot on
