Fighting for basic healthcare

Northern Ireland is the only place in the UK where it’s illegal to have an abortion in almost every circumstance. The penalty for having an illegal abortion is up to life in prison.
 
This Victorian era law is one of the most restrictive in the world and carries the harshest criminal penalties in Europe. Every year up to 1,000 women travel to England for a termination. Others who can’t travel go online to purchase abortion pills, also risking criminal charges.
 
Access to free, safe and legal abortions is a human right. That’s why we’re fighting for Northern Ireland to reform its dangerous and degrading abortion laws.

Together, we can show the people of Northern Ireland that the rest of the UK is with them. Will you join us by sending a message of support to those campaigning for change?
