Pro-choice action – save the datePosted: 14 November 2012
Did you know there are THREE ‘crisis pregnancy centres’ locally who give women misinformation about abortion?
In Ely, Cambridge and Newmarket, there are centres run by anti-abortion Christian group Care Confidential, who conceal their anti-abortion stance, pretending to give impartial advice. They say they are accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) but they are known to flout the BACP guidelines and use its name to trick women into using their services.
Feminist Action Cambridge are organising a rally to protest against these bogus advice centres on Saturday 15th December 12pm-1pm. We’ll be in Cambridge City Centre, on the corner of Fitzroy St and New Square, right next to the Grafton Centre and Christs Pieces. We will be there to give information to the local community about these centres and where people can go for reliable pregnancy advice. Come along to voice your opposition, as well as to support the pro-choice cause, at a time when anti-abortion groups are touring the country and becoming more militant in their tactics. While politicians are making noises about reducing access to abortion, we are demanding to improve and extend reproductive freedom for all women.
Sometimes you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone. Get involved and add your voice – to defend women’s right to autonomy over our bodies!
