To mark the 50th anniversary of the Abortion Act, Abortion Rights present an evening of comedy, performance, spoken word and music.  Pay homage to 50 years of activism over a glass of wine and hear about pro-choice activism, past, present and future.

The 1967 Abortion Act took abortion out of the backstreet, particularly for poor and working class women.  This event will mark this historic victory for the pro-choice movement and an important part of Britain’s social history.

Celebrate and commemorate the efforts and commitment of activists key to making this landmark Act possible.Abortion Rights
