The TUC believes that access to safe, legal abortions is fundamental to wmen’s reproductive rights and to their employment and education prospects, incomes and opportunities. The TUC Women’s Conference have chosen ‘supporting a woman’s right to choose’ as their conference theme for both 2007 and 2008.
The TUC is supporting the campaign by ‘Abortion Rights’ and other pro-choice groups to defend the existing time limit and supporting a woman’s right to choose, a view supported by the vast majority of the British public. An NOP poll conducted in October 2007 found that 83% of the British public support a woman’s right to choose.
Any restrictions on existing abortion rights would have the inevitable consequence of restricting women’s choice and control over their own lives and diminish their life chances. The TUC believes that effective sex and relationships education, improving access to free abortion services and removing barriers to early abortion would be the best way to reduce the need for late abortion.
