Birmingham AR Public Meeting; Decriminalising Abortion
17th November 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Did you know, abortion is still a crime in the UK, punishable by up to life imprisonment?
Did you know that women in Northern Ireland have to choose between buying abortion pills unlawfully and traveling to the mainland to access abortion?
Do you want to hear about the successful campaign to Repeal the 8th amendment banning in abortion, and how we can build on this to overturn the archaic Victorian laws threatening women, restricting developments in good clinical practice, and creating a chilling environment for abortion service providers?
