We aim to:
Oppose any restrictions in women’s current rights and access to abortion.
Improve the current UK abortion law for women, to make abortion available on the request of the woman.
Improve women’s access to, and experience of , abortion – ensure all women in the UK have equal access to safe, legal, and free abortion.
Abortion Rights was formed in 2003 by the merger of the two long-standing and influential campaigns - the National Abortion Campaign (NAC) and the Abortion Law Reform Association (ALRA).
We seek to build the widest possible support for a woman's right to choose and encourage individuals and organisations - women's groups, trade unions, political representatives, academics and students, health care professionals, minority ethnic, lesbian and gay and disabled people's organisations and all others to get involved.
We are an active membership-based democratic campaigning organisation. In additional to individual members, we are delighted to have the support of NUS and civil society organisations as well as the TUC and national trade unions including AMICUS , ASLEF , CWU , FBU , NAPO , PCS , RMT , T&G , TSSA , UCU , UNISON , trade union regions, branches, sections and individual trade unionists.
Abortion Rights is an independent campaign without any government or church funding. Money from membership and affiliation fees, grants, donations and our fundraising Pro-choice Lottery scheme is crucial to sustain our important work.
We would like to thank The Feminist Review Trust , UNISON's General Political Fund, and Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust for the generous financial support they have made towards our campaigning activities.
If you support a woman’s right to choose, why not make a real difference and join Abortion Rights today!
