The fact that fetal abnormality is not a ground for abortion under Northern Ireland law has recently caused headlines. Sarah Ewart travelled from Northern Ireland to England for an abortion at 20 weeks having learned that the she was carrying a baby with anencephaly, a severe form of spina bifida, where there is a failure of proper formation of the brain.
