London, UK. 5th May 2018. Women in the abortion rights campaign hold a rally in Parliament Square before the annual March for Life UK by pro-life anti-abortion campaigners was to march to a rally there. They insisted on the right for women to choose and opposed to any increase of restrictions which would lead to the problems we saw before the 1967 Abortion Act, when women risked their lives in back street abortions. They 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, and supported 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 Ireland. Later the March for Life UK, a largely Catholic event, marched down Whitehall and held a much larger rally. 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.
