Abortion Rights needs your support . . . Last year Abortion Rights led a successful national campaign to defeat a serious parliamentary attempt to drive back women’s abortion rights. We also placed the call for improved rights, including for the women of Northern Ireland, high on the political agenda and celebrated 40 years of the 1967 Abortion Act in Britain. This has all cost more than our usual income and we need your support to maintain vigilance against further promised attacks and to continue campaigning for improved rights.

Please join us for a fun night out and bring your colleagues, family, and friends!

We are sorry that the venue is not wheelchair accessible
