I just learned of this recently from a friend of mine who lives in Northern Ireland. The situation is apparently still of concern, and so I wanted to post this in case any good may come even at this late hour.
Although plans to legalise abortion in Northern Ireland are said to be shelved, N. Irish Pro-Life organization, "Precious Life" remain cautious. Please sign this petition if you are a citizen of the UK. If not a UK citizen, please forward this to anyone you know who is.

10/10/2008 - Attempts by Westminster to force legalised abortion onto the province of Northern Ireland could spark a constitutional crisis, say MLAs. Assembly Member, Pat Ramsey (SDLP), called it "outrageous that British MPs are attempting to impose abortion against the clear wishes of the people of Northern Ireland." http://www.preciouslife.com:80/?va=1&vc=306
