A few weeks ago Twenty five right wing men who will never experience pregnancy banned abortion in Alabama and now Louisiana has followed suit passing a bill banning abortions after a "fetal heartbeat" is detected — before many women even know they are pregnant.
Attacks on hard-won women’s rights are growing more prevalent the world over. On our doorstep women in Northern Ireland are denied event the most basic reproductive rights, facing potential prison sentences for having an abortion in almost all circumstances.
WE stand in solidarity with women in Northern Ireland, Alabama, Louisiana and globally against this horrific curtailment of women’s reproductive rights. It is time to take a stand.
Just as the global #metoo movement showed the strength of solidarity between women across national borders, we must stand together against these moves to curtail women’s reproductive rights and to keep pushing for free safe and legal access to abortion for every woman in the UK.
Sign our petition to the Government to demand it guarantees women’s rights to free, safe and legal abortions in Northern Ireland and across the UK.
