New abortion laws in several US States, including Alabama, have sparked global condemnation. But there are women living in the UK, in 2019, who cannot access abortion care legally in their own country.
Women in Northern Ireland still have no access to legal abortion services without travelling, and moreover any woman living in any area of the UK risks life in prison if she ends a pregnancy at any gestation without the permission of two doctors, under a law dating from 1861. Medical professionals also risk imprisonment for performing a safe, consensual abortion if the procedure is not approved by two doctors.
