Fifty years on from the 1967 Abortion Act, many women in the UK still struggle to access abortions because of cuts in health services, obstructions from medical staff or because the law was never extended to Northern Ireland.
Globally, according to the United Nations, 21.6 million women are unable to access safe abortion and 47,000 women die every year because of complications. This accounts for 13% of all maternal deaths.
Come and reflect on the rights we have won and the rights we still must fight for.
