TAKE ACTION: GE2015: Email your local MP Candidates on Abortion Rights


Find out where each of your local MP candidates stands on a woman’s right to choose. Click through to use the Abortion Rights email tool to contact your candidates ahead of the General Election on 7 May.

Scotland has 59 MPs in Westminster. A quick way of finding out the details of the candidates standing in your constituency is by plugging your postcode into YourNextMP.com.

As Abortion Rights Chair Kerry Abel says in the link to our query tool above, votes on abortion right in parliament are generally taken as votes of conscience. This means, regardless of their party’s views, MPs can vote whichever way they see fit on the matter of abortion. It’s important to know an individual’s view when it comes to abortion rights.

Abortion Rights aims to collate responses to local candidate queries. When you receive responses, please email them to us on choice@abortionrights.org.uk subject heading PPCs Questionnaire.

If you’d like to see a more public response from your local candidates, why not tweet them for their views? See our post on tweeting your candidates.
