Abortion Rights Event

Filed under: Feminism,Politics — by Lucy @ 9:37 pm

UK feminists – please please come along to this event at the House of Commons on Wednesday 22nd November, and ask your MP to come too. It’s a public meeting organised by Abortion Rights in collaboration with pro-choice members of parliament (of which there are still plenty, thank god!). The anti-choice lobby is organising a meeting at the Commons on the same day, so it’s vital we get as many people along to as possible to hear our side of the story.

There’s a real chance the issue of abortion could be raised again in Parliament this year, so we must act now to ensure pro-choice voices are heard – and to show MPs that it is our choice, not theirs, what we do with our bodies.

Hope to see you there!

  2. Yep, although on a much smaller scale. There’s no real chance of a ban or anything, but some anti-choice MPs are starting to talk about a ‘review’ of abortion time limits, which would translate as lowering the limit from its current point of 24 weeks. We haven’t got anything like the problems you have though – at least, not yet…

  3. You probably won’t do; I don’t get the impression that you guys have the same problem with fanatical theocratic types as we do over here. i think perhaps mainly ’cause you know, these are the (ideological) descendents of the charming people you guys kicked the hell out of the country to come colonize over here…
