Manchester Abortion Rights Campaign Open Meeting

6th February 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

From the 14th of February to the 25th of March, anti-choice groups in Manchester are planning to stage a 40 day ‘vigil for life’ outside the Fallowfield Marie Stopes Abortion Clinic. In previous years, these groups have targeted women who attempt to access the clinic. Their tactics include handing out anti-choice leaflets, displaying graphic and medically inaccurate posters of embryos and attempting to speak to the women who are entering.

We believe that it is a woman’s legal right to access health care services without harassment and intimidation. In conjunction with SisterSupport, Abortion Rights Campaign Manchester will therefore be holding an anti-vigil demonstration throughout this month. Our aim is to ensure that there is a small but visible opposition to the vigil and to provide escorts for women into the clinic if they want it.

Given that this is a month long vigil, we will be looking for all the support we can get in terms of numbers. If you are interested in getting involved, learning more about it and helping organising, come along to the open meeting on February 6th at Partisan Collective at 7pm!
