    Lydia, in the linked story you provide for the Belfast Telegram, I cannot find the phrase you have in quotes. Here’s the graf from the story.

    It has been reported in numerous publications, including the Belfast Telegraph, that Northern Irish women have access to “free NHS abortions” as a result of the June change.

    Here’s the link, which doesn’t copy over to here: http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/northern-ireland/mp-creasy-who-helped-secured-free-abortions-for-ni-women-says-move-not-political-cynicism-36013823.html

      Ah they must have changed it! One of my interviewees told me she emailed them to correct it, and they seem to have done it. I should have screenshotted. What should we do with that quote now?

        One point of your story is to say that some places got it wrong. Does the criticism still apply to that newspaper, or did they get it right on the rewrite. If the latter, we’ll have to cut and find another example.

          Will find another example.

    Hi Lydia, i think the story is stronger now and reads well. Co-operation makes it happen, right ? (A quote from Sesame Street)

    Hi Lydia, you can see edits on your NI abortion piece, and let me know when there’s a new version to admire. Some thoughts in box at foot of the WordPress working copy.

      Hi Angela, I have digested and acted on your notes and hope you find the new version better! I think an explainer could work but this angle and narrative seems more appropriate as I have done interviews etc. What do you think? Would love to hear more feedback 🙂

        Good stuff, Lydia, I’ll have a good read of that over the weekend.

    This refers to Marie Stopes as “the late”, she died over half a century ago, doesn’t the late imply a relatively recent death/

      True, changed.
