London, UK. 5th May 2018. The March for Life UK, a largely Catholic event calling for an end to abortions marches down Whitehall to a rally in Parliament Square. Opposed to abortion they aim to raise awareness of the hurt and damage that abortion causes and to unite all the pro-life groups in the UK to help bring to an end what it calls the greatest violation to human rights in history. Earlier in the day feminists held a rally in Parliament Square insisting on the right for women to choose to have abortions. They were fiercely opposed to any increase of restrictions which would lead to the problems before the 1967 Abortion Act, when women risked their lives in back street abortions, and called for women in Northern Ireland to be given the same rights as in the rest of the UK and for an end of the harassment of women going into clinics. Some had posters supporting the Irish referendum on 25th May to repeal the 8th amendment passed in 1983 which recognised the equal right to life of the mother and the unborn child, effectively banning abortion in Irleand.
