These are our Champions of Choice. They are people who have campaigned for or dedicated much of their working lives to supporting women’s reproductive choice. We celebrate their commitment and believe they are an inspiration to us all.
We nominate Keir Starmer MP as a champion for choice for his dedication to women accessing legal healthcare free from intimidation an harassment. In Dispatches he acknowledged how anti abortion extremists behaviour is intended and a gross invasion of privacy, calling for buffer zones around abortion clinics.
Alliance for Choice are a member-based organisation that campaigns tirelessly for the extension of the 1967 Abortion Act to Northern Ireland and abortion rights in Northern Ireland. Following the recent High Court ruling Alliance for Choice started a very important campaign #trustwomen. They are calling on the public to contact their MLA and ask them for legal change, to trust women and push for a free vote on any progressive changes. Alliance for Choice’s continued commitment to reproductive rights for women in Northern Ireland undoubtedly makes them a Champion of Choice
