Pro-choice protest, February 6, London

// 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.

If you can’t make it to London, maybe you could protest at one of the other dates of Widdecome’s tour:

London: Central Hall Westminster, SW1: Wed 6 Feb at 7.00pm

Widnes: The Foundry, Lugsdale Road: Mon 18 Feb at 7.30pm

Cardiff: The City Temple, Cowbridge Road East: Tues 4 Mar at 7.30pm

There may be a protest organised in Liverpool, I’ll let you know when I get confirmation.
