Regarding the issue of abortion, Truss voted in favor of liberalizing the abortion laws in Northern Ireland, which previously had greater restrictions than England or Wales.

“We are a United Kingdom, and we need all of our laws to apply right across the United Kingdom. That is what being a union is,” she said regarding the vote, as reported by Christian Concern.

However, she abstained from votes to create “censorship zones” around abortion clinics to curb pro-life demonstrations and an amendment to permanently allow “DIY abortions” in England in which women are sent home to terminate a pregnancy and dispose of the remains without medical supervision or care. 

Additionally, she abstained from proposed legislation that would ban sex-selective abortions.
