Greens: Abortion law change a “fantastic step for reproductive rights in Wales”

29 June 2018

Green Party of England and Wales deputy leader Amelia Womack reacted to the news that women in Wales will now be able to take their second abortion pill at home[1].

Womack said:

“This is a fantastic step for reproductive rights in Wales. Women will no longer be forced to miscarry on the bus on the way home from the doctor, they will be able to take their medication as required in the safety of their own home.

“Hopefully this will help to destigmatise abortion in Wales. We now need to review the existing UK legislation to make sure that our abortion law has trusting women at its heart.”
