The national pro-choice campaign

join the pro-choice protests – Liverpool, Coventry, Cardiff

Abortion Rights has called for peaceful pro-choice protests against a national road show to drum up anti-abortion lobbying around the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill currently in Parliament.

We encourage all supporters of a woman’s right to choose to join in as a public demonstration of the strength of the majority pro-choice opinion and to oppose attacks on women’s fundamental rights. Please bring your friends and colleagues, banners and placards!

Abortion Rights is determined that all anti-abortion amendments moved as part of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill currently in Parliament are defeated, and that any opportunity to advance the abortion law for women is maximised.

The road show with Ann Widdecombe MP, Lord David Alton and others is organised by hard-line anti-abortion groups Care, Life, and Right to Life Trust.
