I don't have Facebook, can anyone give me the details?

This is something I believe in most strongly, particularly because in in the country my parents are originally from, abortion is still illegal. This means there is a high number of deaths from women having 'backstreet' abortions.

As a result of this, protecting choice on abortion in the UK, is one of the causes I feel most strongly about.

Many thanks slug.

I've got a child free day on Saturday, as DH is having a 'dad day' with the DCs, so I'm going to go and show my support.

If I'd known about it earlier, I'd have been there.

Yes I was there <<looks around shiftily>> I had an "interesting" conversation witha bible weilding man and a far mor intellectual chat with a 4 year old girl.

I wish I could have gone, but my DD was ill over Friday night, so I had to stay home on Saturday to look after her while DH took the other three DCs out.

I'm glad the turnout was good.
