Feminist Fightback picket of the Christian Medical Fellowship

// 17 January 2008

I was forwarded this information today…

The Christian Medical Fellowship (CMF) is lobbying the Government hard over the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill currently being discussed in Parliament, in favour of reducing the time limit on abortions. The CMF was recently exposed when at least eight of its members gave evidence to the Government Inquiry by the Science and Technology Committee into the future of abortion law in Britain. They claimed that abortion harmed a woman’s health without disclosing their membership of the CMF (see here). The CMF also hosts the minority report produced by the Conservative MP Nadine Dorries who has previously introduced a Bill to cut back the time limit.

You can join the Feminist Fightback picket of the CMF on January 25th, to help defend the time limit on abortion and oppose attacks on the reproductive rights that women have won in the last 40 years.Supporters are meeting at 4p.m at 6 Marshalea Road, SE1 1HL, London (nearest tubes are London Bridge and Borough High Street).
