This was sent to me by Abortion Rights.
On 5th June, Ann Winterton will table a Ten Minute Rule Bill to impose mandatory counselling on women seeking an abortion (see text below). This is a condescending, cynical attempt to chip away at women’s abortion rights that will lead to further delays in service provision.
This is the third anti-choice Bill in less than a year. The other two were successfully defeated thanks to our combined and sustained lobbying efforts. Please contact your MP today and urge them to vote against this Bill.
More on their website on how you can lobby your MP with sample letters.
As a side note, Donald wrote a good article on abortion for The Sharpener last year which is worth reading. I’m pro-choice so there’s no point trying to convince me otherwise.
