strange_raptors: Ellipsis (Angry)
[personal profile] strange_raptors
Next week MPs are voting on amendments to the health and social care bill, I'm specifically concerned about the amendment that women should be required to have independent counselling before having an abortion.

There's been quite a lot of news coverage on this issue. Some articles I found useful were Education for Choice's investigation into some independent organisations,  Zoe Williams' Comment is Free piece makes some very good points, a discussion of right-wing Christian activists and their influence on the coalition government, and ways in which Faith-based charities can do good, without restricting choice for women.

If that manages to sway you, or you were already convinced, then you could email your MP, using FindmyMP, with this draft letter that the nice people at FPA composed.
