Alliance for Choice Belfast: September 28 Day Global Day of Action for Access to Safe and Legal Abortion
September 28 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Alliance for Choice plans to inform women about the options currently available to them – until they can effect a change in the current restrictive legislation.
