We have released a new statement summarising our campaign priorities as the discussion on devolution of abortion law continues:
Abortion Rights is the national pro-choice campaign, working to defend and extend women’s rights and access to free, safe, legal abortion. We oppose any attack on the 1967 Abortion Act, whilst also arguing for the improvements which would allow women to make their own reproductive decisions without legal barriers, obstructions or delays. We seek to improve women’s access to, and experience of, abortion, in the UK, in particular supporting the campaign for women’s rights in Northern Ireland, where access to choice on abortion is still denied. Currently there are barriers to women in Scotland seeking later terminations in line with the provisions of the 1967 Act.
