Secondly: I’m a volunteer for a small organisation in the UK called Abortion Rights. Considering the budget problems we’re facing nationwide, groups like ours are suffering under the strain of lack of funds. On top of this, in the next couple of months there is almost definitely going to be a legal challenge against the already very restricted availability of abortion throughout the country.
75% of the UK population believe women should have a right to abortion, and yet this procedure is not guaranteed, and in Northern Ireland is basically illegal. Women in England, Scotland and Wales are often refused abortions or must wait up to 3 weeks to have one carried out. Currently, the coalition government are trying to make it even harder for women to get these procedures, so we need a lot of support in the coming months.
Could you please ask your followers to join Abortion Rights at www.abortionrights.org.uk, follow us at @Abortion_Rights and add us on facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2209067369www.abortionrights.org.uk, follow us at @Abortion_Rights and add us on facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2209067369
