Friday 30th March, 7pm, Bedford Square, WC1
Anti-choice group ‘40 Days for Life’ are staging a 40 day protest outside the Bpas clinic on Bedford Square.
They have been approaching women entering the clinic, handing out grossly inaccurate material and filming clients and staff. Their presence is distressing and intimidating.
On Friday 30th March they will be joined by Bishop Alan Hopes for an evening prayer vigil at the clinic.
Pro-choice supporters will be staging a peaceful counter-protest to express our opposition to the group’s tactics and to stand up for our right to safe, legal abortion. Join us!

At a recent protest in favor of reproductive rights in Richmond VA, protesters assembled on the Virginia Capitol’s steps. Police, many in riot gear, demanded that they disperse or be arrested. 33 people refused to leave the steps, and were arrested.

PPLM Archives: 1981 pro-choice rally.
Walk for Choice, NYC.
Sign reads: “Feminists fight back! Save Abortion, End Sterilization Abuse. Radical Women + Freedom Socialist Party.”

Remember it’s the Pro-choice Demo in London tomorrow! I hope lots of you are coming down.
Regardless if you’re able to attend or not, it would be great to get submissions of some pro-choice photos and slogans to gear us up for the demonstration.
