A message that I just sent to my MP:
I understand that on June 5, Ann Winterton will table a Ten Minute Rule Bill to impose mandatory counselling on women seeking an abortion.
This is a condescending, cynical attempt to chip away at women’s abortion rights that will lead to further delays in service provision: and some women already have to wait up to five week! for an NHS
This is the third anti-choice Bill in less than a year, and reflects a contempt for parliamentary procedures in a refusal to accept the democratic decision.
Please make the effort to actively oppose this bill, by voting against it.
If you are in the UK, please do likewise.
(As a result of an alert from Abortion Rights.)
