Action 14: Support young parents & sign the petition for 'No eviction from Focus E15'
We are a mix of mothers and mothers-to-be who have lived in the E15 hostel from a few months to 3 years. Having been told this would only be temporary…
Reproductive justice means support for people who choose to become parents, too. The Focus E15 Mum’s campaign in Stratford has been waging war on Newham council’s attempts to rehouse them out of borough (and out of London) due to cuts. Sign their petition against their eviction:
Action 10: Donate to ASN today
Imagine having to travel to another country just to access a safe, legal abortion? Navigating your way through the problems of sorting travel and acommodation, finding childcare, taking time from work, scraping the cash together… And when you finally reach the clinic there’s one more problem; a bunch of picketers.
Mara Clarke, director of ASN says;
The women who call @AbortionSupport Network are so desperate they need to call strangers in another country and ask for money for abortion. But hey, protestors, go ahead and make them feel worse.
Action 6: Sign up to Brook’s Sex Positive petition for great sex education

Action 4: Go outside.
If you’re in Cardiff there’s a pro choice match happening today - 11am starting from City Hall.

Action 5: Read the facts on the Guttmacher Institute website
Know the facts! The Guttmacher Institute is an amazing source of facts and stats about reproductive choice. Go lose yourself it for a few hours this Sunday afternoon, and bookmark it in readiness for the next time you end up arguing with an anti-choicer - http://www.guttmacher.org/
