Supporters mobilise against SPUC’s ‘kerbside vigils’
Anti-choice group SPUC have announced that they will hold ‘pro-life chains’ in 50 towns around the country on Saturday, 28th April to mark 44 years since the implementation of the Abortion Act.
Fortunately, Abortion Rights is not alone in believing that the advent of safe, legal abortion in Great Britain is a cause for celebration. In fact, pro-choice supporters will be staging counter-protests in major towns and cities this weekend, to remind SPUC and anyone who sees them, that the majority of the UK population firmly supports a woman’s right to choose.
So why not join them, or stage your own counter-protest? It only takes a few friends and a facebook page to get started.
Bath: 10.30am, Bath Abbey
Brighton: 10.30, Preston Park
Bristol: 10.30/11.00am, Bristol Hippodrome
Liverpool: 10.45am, Childwall Health Centre
Edinburgh, 11am, Usher Hall, Lothian Road
Sheffield, 10.30am Vulcan Road
Cardiff: 10.45am near Whitchurch high School on the A470
Newcastle: 11am, Tyne Bridge
Stevenage: 11am, Stevenage Station
Oxford: 12pm, Cornmarket (there’s no SPUC demo in Oxford, but it’s a good day to do some pro-choice leafletting anyway!)
So let’s make some noise on Saturday and tell anti-choice protesters to SPUC OFF!
