Abortion Rights has pledged its support for Unison’s ‘Million Voices for Public Services’ campaign. The union is mobilising supporters to defend essential public services from public spending cuts as the new government seeks to reduce the budget deficit. Abortion Rights will be joining with many of its affiliated trade unions in campaigning to protect public services, especially NHS spending in the area of reproductive health and abortion services.
Over the last decade we have seen the percentage of abortions funded by the NHS rise to 94% and the proportion of abortions taking place at under 10 weeks rise to 91%, as a direct result of increased investment in reproductive healthcare.
Abortion Rights is committed to defending these improvements, which have been so important to the health and well-being of millions on women in the UK.
