In the UK, 1 in 3 women will have an abortion in their lifetime. Yet we still do not have the right to choose.
Under a law passed in 1861, any woman who ends their own pregnancy without the approval of two doctors is committing a crime – which carries a sentence of up to life imprisonment
The current Minister for Women in the UK Government has repeatedly voted to restrict access to abortion care, and tried to block moves to legalise abortion in Northern Ireland
At the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, BPAS, we have been providing abortion care and campaigning for a woman’s right to choose since 1968. Right now, we need your help.
