AGM & Public Meeting 2019 

Pro-Choice Public Meeting, 12.00pm – Everyone welcome

The Road to Abortion Reform
Phew! It’s been an extraordinary few years for abortion rights; we’ve celebrated 50 years of the Abortion Act in Great Britain, seen the historic Repeal the 8th movement triumph in the Republic of Ireland and witnessed the incredible success of Manx campaigners in bringing safe, legal abortion through a unanimous vote to the Isle of Man for the first time.

We remember Savita Halappanavar and all the other women like her who have suffered tragically avoidable deaths due to patriarchal restrictions on reproductive justice.

We still don’t have free, safe, legal abortion for everyone across the British Isles. In Northern Ireland, women are still being forced by barbaric and backward lawmakers to choose between traveling or facing criminalisation at home.

We’re inviting you to join us and our excellent speakers, Kerry Abel- Abortion Rights, Stephanie Kelsey- CALM IoM and Emma Campbell- Alliance for Choice to think about what the road ahead looks like for abortion reform.
