Advocacy & campaigns

If you think abortion rights in the UK are safe, then you haven’t been paying attention.

In the UK, 1 in 3 women will have an abortion in their lifetime. Yet we still do not have the right to choose.

Did you know that:

  • Under a law passed in 1861, any woman who ends their own pregnancy at any gestation without the approval of two doctors is committing a crime – which carries a sentence of up to life imprisonment;
  • In 2022, two women were charged with the offence of trying to end their own pregnancies, while others have faced lengthy criminal investigations;
  • Every week, women in Great Britain face anti-choice harassment outside clinics;
  • The current Minister for Women in the UK Government has repeatedly voted to restrict access to abortion care, and tried to block moves to legalise abortion in Northern Ireland?

At the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, BPAS, alongside providing compassionate, NHS-funded abortion care to over 100,000 women a year, we lead the fight for abortion rights in the UK.
