Abortion Reform Now

On Monday, a woman was sentenced to 28 months in prison through taking an abortion pill later than the legally mandated period.

This sentence higlights a simple truth: abortion is still illegal in the UK, bar a few narrowly defined exemptions.

This needs to be the other way around: abortion needs to be broadly legal in the UK, bar a few very narrowly defined exceptions.

And as importantly, abortion needs to be taken out of criminal law. It's not a crime: it's a healthcare issue, and it should be treated as such.

We call on all MPs, of all parties, to bring abortion laws in the UK in line with women's rights.
