A Woman's right to choose

Information

A Woman's right to choose

Abortion – A Different Perspective

Yet another piece I wrote a LONG time ago, but considering the current attacks on a woman's right to control her own body, I think the relevance of the following still maintains.  Let me know what…Continue

Long past time, too.

Suzanna. That's great news. Well done to the people of the Isle of Man.

Does that quite equalise things with the rest of the UK?

Comment by Suzanna on December 16, 2017 at 11:29

Yes, i think it's a good strong message which takes no explanation. The arguments have been interesting and at times deeply frustrating. It has been uncertain which way it would go until recently when the government put it out to the public for consultation. Here are the results:

87% agreed that a woman should have a choice to request an abortion up to 14 weeks.

84.7% said that rape victims should be able to request an abortion without reporting the crime.

81.5% agreed that women should be able to request a termination at any stage of the pregnancy, including after 24 weeks if the foetus has a fatal abnormality.

The law is being written up and should be here in the first few months of 2018 if all goes well.

Wow what a great idea to use an iconic picture of the Handmaids tale to protest unfair abortion laws  

Comment by Mrs.B on December 15, 2017 at 15:34

That makes for an impressive sight.

Comment by Suzanna on December 15, 2017 at 15:30

Yes, we're very behind in some ways. It's a doctor who is leading the way for us and some protesters called handmaids. This is the silent protest they held last year, it's become a bit of an iconic image. 

Comment by Stephen on December 15, 2017 at 15:10

Suzanna,I often forget that the Isle of Man has different laws to the rest of the UK but I assumed it was much closer to our rules 

Comment by Mrs.B on December 15, 2017 at 14:39

More & more people are rebelling against having babies just because some religion says they have to. Changes can't come fast enough!

Comment by Chris on December 15, 2017 at 10:17

Hopefully Women on waves will help.

Comment by Suzanna on December 15, 2017 at 5:10

Slowly but surely loosening the grip of the church can only be a good thing. 

On the Isle of Man they are working on getting abortion laws changed because at the moment it's only allowed in cases of incest, rape or danger to the mother's life.

The Christians are protesting. It is worse for the poor because of this not being an option in the past unless you can pay £1000 to travel and have the procedure. It will improve children's lives immensely if they are wanted.
