Rally for Choice with Abortion Rights UK
On Saturday, October 2, we will join the Abortion Rights UK march from Trafalgar Square to the U.S. Embassy to support reproductive rights in the United States. Details here.
Following new legislation in Texas that prevents abortion access from six weeks of pregnancy – a time in which many women do not yet know they are pregnant – we are gathering in support of abortion rights. We support the Biden Administration’s actions to protect abortion access and efforts to advance the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would safeguard the right to abortion. Legislation like Texas’ does not just affect women, but denies important healthcare to everyone with a uterus including trans and non-binary people.
Please meet us at 11:45AM at the base of Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square (look for our Democrats Abroad banner). We will march together to the U.S. Embassy at Nine Elms, and then hear from a lineup of speakers beginning at 1:30PM.
All are welcome to attend in support of reproductive rights and signs are encouraged; membership in Democrats Abroad and U.S. citizenship not required.
Please wear a mask, use hand sanitiser, maintain distance from others, and take a lateral flow test before attending the rally. Do not attend if you feel unwell.
