Brighton Green councilors propose abortion rights motion

GREEN councilors are to table a motion to protect abortion rights in the UK at a council meeting tonight.

If the motion is passed at a meeting of all 54 council members tonight, the council will write to the government to demand that abortion rights be included in a Bill of Rights.

The Bill of Rights legislation was introduced into Parliament last month to replace the Human Rights Act.

Councilor Marianna Ebel, who is filing the motion, said: “The US ruling should be a cause for concern for women around the world – and closer to home there are still warning signs.

“Our sisters in Northern Ireland still do not have access to safe and legal abortion, which should be a mark of shame on our government.”

The motion comes as the Conservative leadership contest enters its final stages, with some activists voicing concern over candidates’ views on abortion.

Both Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss have abstained in some previous parliamentary votes on abortion issues, including the introduction of buffer zones outside of abortion clinics.

Cllr Ebel said: “While the Conservative Party finds its next leader, now is the time to do the right thing for women.

“But the voting record of both final candidates suggests otherwise – and we look forward to them taking action to protect this vital right for women.” Brighton Green councilors propose abortion rights motion
