Protesters at Marie Stopes private abortion clinic in Belfast


Up to 40 people are protesting outside the first private clinic to offer abortions to women in Northern Ireland.
The service, run by Marie Stopes, opened in Belfast on Thursday.
It has said it will provide terminations within NI's current legal framework - abortions are not illegal but are very strictly controlled.
The protesters at the clinic are from a range of religious denominations and are holding up placards with images of aborted foetuses.
An anti-abortion group has called for the clinic to be shut down, but Abortion Rights welcomed its opening.
Northern Ireland, unlike the rest of the UK, is not covered by an Abortion Act.
