Two years after Savita tragedy… Never Again – Abortion Rights Now Protest

Pro-choice-protest

5pm Tuesday 28 October Belfast City Hall

On the second anniversary of Savita Halappanavar’s tragic death, protests are taking place across Ireland as well as in Sweden, Germany, Canada, Australia and many other countries to demand abortion rights for women in Ireland.

As part of this International Day of Action we are calling on people to protest at Belfast City Hall to call on the Assembly to extend the 1967 Abortion Act to Northern Ireland immediately.

Annually over 1000 women from Northern Ireland are forced to travel to access abortion services in England or Wales – adding further strain to an already difficult situation. We demand the right to choose for women in Northern Ireland which must include access to safe, free and legal abortions here.

The protest in Belfast is being supported by:

Sarah Everard – Never Again!

We know that Sarah ‘did everything right’; she walked a busy route, she made a phone call and let people know where she was going and when she was going to be home. But that didn’t stop the violent attack that cost her life. Almost 80% of women killed by men in the UK were victims of their domestic partner and were killed in their own home. Safety measures would not have protected them.
