Pro-Choice Public Meeting, 12.00pm – Everyone welcome
We remember Savita Halappanavar and all the other women like her who have suffered tragically avoidable deaths due to patriarchal restrictions on reproductive justice.
We still don’t have free, safe, legal abortion for everyone across the British Isles. The British territory of Gibraltar has the harshest anti-abortion laws anywhere in Europe – the penalty for breaching the law is life imprisonment.
In Northern Ireland, women are still being forced by barbaric and backward lawmakers to choose between traveling or facing criminalisation at home.
We’re inviting the panel to reflect on the recent success and setbacks and to think about what the road ahead looks like for abortion reform.
