Wednesday 26th October, 7 — 9pm
Committee Room 3, House of Lords, London SW1
(Nearest Tube – Westminster)


Access to birth control and abortion is crucial for women’s equality. Abortion rights are now under sustained attack, on both sides of the Atlantic, from an anti-choice lobby strengthened by George W Bush.
The sensationalist focus on later abortion is designed to confuse public and political opinion on a woman’s right to choose and win support for incremental restrictions. Actually, very few women need later abortion — for compelling reasons — and need the protection of the law.
Don’t let the clocks be turned back on women’s rights. 
Now is the time to defend women’s right to choose.
