Laura // 26 January 2008
Abortion Rights has called a peaceful pro-choice protest against anti-abortion MP Ann Widdecome’s road show ‘Not on your life . .. or anyone else’s’ which is promoting anti-abortion goals around the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill.
Assemble outside Central Hall Westminster Wednesday 6th February, 6.30pm
Nearest tube Westminster. Methodist Central Hall, Westminster is on Victoria Street in London, just off Parliament Square, next to the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre and facing Westminster Abbey. Map and directions here.
The road show by ‘Ann Widdecombe and guests’ is jointly organised by hardline anti-abortion groups Care, Life and Right to Life Trust and is also being promoted by other anti-abortion organisations including the Christian Medical Fellowship.
