πŸŒŽπŸ’”πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ Last week, a bill was signed into law in Georgia that is a near-total ban on abortion. This marks the fourth β€œheartbeat” law to be passed in the United States in the last year - a name that is designed to be emotive. It refers to the first signs of the development of a heart in a fetus at 6 weeks of pregnancy, long before most people know they are pregnant. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € πŸ‘πŸ’” Georgia’s bill stands out for going one step further in including personhood language, criminalising not just abortion providers, but also pregnant people for having abortions or even miscarrying. Today, Alabama passed its own law banning abortion except when the health of the mother is at risk. We remember that Savita Halappanavar died in Ireland with the same law on the books. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ’” Currently, women & pregnant people living in Northern Ireland are forced to travel to mainland Britain for abortion care that is illegal in their home country. There will always be people who cannot travel because of domestic violence, immigration status, and disability. People living in Northern Ireland and the USA deserve the dignity of accessing safe, legal & local reproductive healthcare at home. #nowforni These laws won't stop women and pregnant people from having abortions, or from making the best decision for their bodies and families, it will just mean they are forced to do so unsafely and with stigma. #reproductiverightsforall ✊ Please join me in supporting @plannedparenthood @womenhelporg @all4choice @abortionsupportnetwork β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
πŸ†˜ With the awareness generated by #metoo, there is an increased demand for support services as more people are emboldened to name what happened to them.❣️Rape Crisis Centres❣️offer much-needed support to people who have been assaulted across England and Wales (@rapecrisisew), but demand way outstrips supply.❗️This time last year, there were 6,355 survivors on Rape Crisis waiting lists and these can be as long as 14 months.‼️ This means that if a survivor calls to look for support they may be turned away... β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € βŒ›οΈπŸ’· Successive UK governments have failed to fund life-saving services. There are just 44 Rape Crisis Centres in England and Wales. 🎯 But the Istanbul Convention (which our Government will soon ratify) sets out a minimum provision of support for victims of rape which would require that there be 150 Rape Crisis Centres in England and Wales. 🚨 It’s simply unacceptable that a country like mine falls so far short of the minimum standards set across Europe. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € πŸ“‹β€οΈβœπŸ» So on #IWD2019, I encourage you to sign Fern’s petition πŸ‘†πŸ»LINK IN BIOπŸ‘†πŸ»and demand that Theresa May guarantees sustained πŸ’° funding for rape crisis support services, πŸ’Œ so the survivors of sexual violence can access the support they need. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € πŸ”—πŸ“‹βœπŸ» tinyurl.com/FernsPetition β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‘©πŸΌ These are the words of 25-year-old Fern Champion, who was raped in 2016 and has launched a petition πŸ’Œ asking the Prime Minister to ensure that specialist rape counselling support is always available for everyone who seeks it: β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € 🀲🏻 πŸ’” β€œBy not adequately funding support services this Government is telling survivors that their recovery does not matter and by extension that they do not matter.
