Abortion Rights believes that women should be able to access information and abortion services free from intimidation and harassment so that they can make their own decisions on the termination of their pregnancy.
Abort67 appear to be trying to shut down these services by intimidating staff, service users and local residents.
‘We the undersigned support the provision of local abortion services for women across London.
We are appalled by a campaign by anti-abortion extremists - and Abort67 in particular - who are systematically attempting to prevent NHS-funded abortion services being available to local women in Southwark.
We condemn those who protest outside abortion clinics showing graphic images of aborted foetuses, with the intent to intimidate and harass women as they access advice and support about an unplanned pregnancy, or a pregnancy they cannot continue with.
We believe that women should be able to freely access abortion services and their private choices should be respected.
We feel that having banners waved in their faces or being confronted by those who know nothing of their circumstances is harassment.
Healthcare providers should be able to offer women support and care free from intimidation.
One in three women will have an abortion in her lifetime. We stand by the women of London who will need that care and the doctors and nurses who provide it.
David Cameron and Natalie Bennett lead opposition to broadcasters’ proposals for lineup before next year’s election
It has been announced that the leader of UKIP, Nigel Farage has been invited to join the leaders debates on national TV before next year’s general election. However Natalie Bennett, leader of the Green Party, has been excluded from these debates.
As well as being fair, since the Greens are currently as popular as the Lib Dems, putting the green party in these debates would mean that at least one female leader is involved in them.
Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this. It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe that we even live in that kind of world […] It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these web sites are responsible. Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought that crosses somebody’s mind is to make a profit from it. It’s so beyond me. I just can’t imagine being that detached from humanity. I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside.
