The campaign to decriminalise abortion across the UK

Every woman, being with child, who, with intent to procure her own miscarriage, shall unlawfully administer to herself any poison or unlawfully use any instrument shall be liable to be kept in penal servitude for life.

[Section 58, Offences Against the Person Act, 1861]

In every country in the UK today, a woman who ends her own pregnancy can be sent to prison for life under laws created before women could vote.
