TUC Women's Conference

Janine has reports back from the conference over at her blog.

I was particularly pleased to read about the RMT emergency resolution moved by Janine :

This resolution proposes one simple thing - one very little thing - that would help that fight. We ask the TUC to provide information on why some women may need an abortion close to the time limit. This will help us to counteract the anti-abortionists' propaganda and illustrate why we believe that women should have the right to safe, legal abortion as early as possible, as late as necessary.

It was passed.
Well done Janine .

For more info on why late abortion , though rare, is still sometimes necessary check out the Abortion Rights Website and this briefing.
