Hi everyone and welcome to the first day of 40 Days of Choice!
Opinion polls consistently show the majority of people support a woman’s right to choose, and this support cuts across lines of faith and politics. There’s a widespread understanding that women need to be able to control the timing and size of their families, and that abortion is an important back-up to contraception if women are to be able to make real choices about their lives.
But the persistent minority who oppose a woman’s right to choose often try to make out the tide is turning. To kick off 40 Days of Choice send us your pics to show that, actually, it’s not.
Tweet us @40DaysofChoice or submit a photo of yourself with an ‘I ♥ pro choice’ sign (see link in right hand column) – wherever or whenever the mood takes you - and we’ll publish them here. Either make your own sign or print out one of our templates.
And if you don’t get round to it today, we’ll be happy to have them throughout our 40 Days of Choice.
