Live updates from major Nottingham demonstration against banning US abortion rights

Background

Pro-choice supporters are showing solidarity to people in the US affected by the decision to overturn Roe V Wade abortion laws. Nottingham is standing with those affected in a demonstration held on Saturday (July 2) at 2pm until 3pm by the Brian Clough Statue.

The campaigners are urging Nottingham people to show support at the event by ‘fighting to maintain access to safe and legal abortion’. The event, organised by Pro-Choice Nottingham, will feature speakers who will talk about the importance of safe and legal access.

The campaigners say this will not only show solidarity but send a clear message to the British Government that similar decisions will not be accepted. It comes after the US Supreme Court overturned the law that protects access to abortion.

It was recently reported that almost half of the US states have already passed legislation that could come into force allowing changes that reduce the time limit or ban abortion completely. The ruling is expected to disproportionately affect minority women who already face limited access to healthcare, according to statistics analysed by The Associated Press.

Speaking previously, Lisa Clarke, a local nurse and member of Pro-choice Nottingham said: “I and many of my friends and colleagues are utterly appalled at this decision, some really shaken and fearful. This is an extremist right-wing action and must be vocally rejected our own government, some of whom have been influenced by some of the same right-wing extremists.

“Our own cabinet contains some vocal anti-abortion voices. The UK government must speak out now and reassure women that we won’t be having our access to safe reproductive health questioned or removed.”
