Bronagh also showed off her bump once more as she posed in a cropped t-shirt with the slogan ‘decriminalise’ as she spoke in support of reproductive rights.
She wrote:: ‘Being pregnant has only affirmed how important reproductive rights are to me & how we must continue to fight for them.
‘It’s been over a year since abortion was decriminalised in N Ireland and yet still women are being forced to travel to England in the middle of a pandemic to access proper healthcare. It is unacceptable.
‘The UK government, the Secretary of State & Stormont are all playing pass the buck & proper, safe, local abortion services are barely available or hanging on by a thread (due to the sheer perseverance of medical professionals and doctors).
‘This is in spite of the UK Gov decreeing by law, nearly 18 months ago that abortion services should be made available in NI.
‘The DUP only a few weeks ago, introduced a bill in Stormont to try & reverse some of our new abortion laws.

‘Women & pregnant people are being let down by both governments in Northern Ireland. Do not let these politicians stand in the way of our rights. We should all have the right to choose.
We should all have the right to proper healthcare. We still have work to do. Lobby your MP or your MLA today to put pressure on them.’
