Abortion Rights in Colombia
This week we hosted an event exploring abortion rights around the world, as part of the Edinburgh World Justice Festival. At this event, we were really pleased to be able to share this short video from sisters in Colombia working for abortion rights.
The video was made as a result of the work of Anne Scott (1951 - 2018), who was a long-term member of Engender, of Abortion Rights Edinburgh, and of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF). Anne had been in contact with WILPF in Colombia and asked them to produce an article discussing the situation there. The article, discussing really exciting community initiatives for abortion rights, can be accessed here.
The article and video is a fitting tribute to Anne, who is much missed by us all.
