Just a thought that Ukrainian women raped by soldiers or otherwise with unwanted pregnancies may be in countries where abortion is difficult to get, like Poland. Not that Polish women don't deserve the same access... I just donated to Abortion Support Network who along with other organisations will support women who need this service.

Hadn't heard of the network, that's a good idea, OP. Thanks for the post.

Jesus, what awful things to consider.

Rape is a weapon of war.

Yes, and it's a shame that the Countess of Wessex's work in this area is so little reported.

Thank you @EdithWeston - thanks to you I just looked up the Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative which I now do vaguely remember William Hague setting up, and which the Countess is patron of I think. link
