๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Last week a bill was signed into law in Georgia that is a near-total ban on abortion. This marks the fourth &ampldquoheartbeat&amprdquo law to be passed in the United States in the last year - a name that is designed to be emotive. It refers to the first signs of the development of a heart in a fetus at 6 weeks of pregnancy long before most people know they are pregnant.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’” Georgia&amprsquos bill stands out for going one step further in including personhood language criminalising not just abortion providers but also pregnant people for having abortions or even miscarrying. Today Alabama passed its own law banning abortion except when the health of the mother is at risk. We remember that Savita Halappanavar died in Ireland with the same law on the books.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ’” Currently women &ampamp pregnant people living in Northern Ireland are forced to travel to mainland Britain for abortion care that is illegal in their home country. There will always be people who cannot travel because of domestic violence immigration status and disability. People living in Northern Ireland and the USA deserve the dignity of accessing safe legal &ampamp local reproductive healthcare at home. #nowforni

These laws wont stop women and pregnant people from having abortions or from making the best decision for their bodies and families it will just mean they are forced to do so unsafely and with stigma. #reproductiverightsforall โœŠ

Dr. Denis Mukwege has been a brilliant colleague and collaborator on the @g7 Gender Equality Council in Paris. ๐Ÿ’ซ To borrow praise from a mutual friend Eve Ensler Dr. Mukwege is truly &amplsquoa beacon for all men to follow. The Nobel Peace Prize winner and founder of Panzi Hospital is so inspiring to me as a doctor activist and male ally in the fight against gender-based violence.โœŠ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿงก

Honoured to be back in Paris with my colleagues for round two of @g7 Gender Equality Advisory Council meetings to complete our proposed document for the Biarritz Agreement.

I had the opportunity to meet with @women7official a coalition of civil society organizations &ampamp feminist leaders who are advocating that @g7 make concrete commitments to finance feminist movements around the world. Financial commitments are essential - without them it&amprsquos impossible to implement gender equality laws and make them a reality in the world.

๐Ÿ†˜ With the awareness generated by #metoo there is an increased demand for support services as more people are emboldened to name what happened to them.โฃ๏ธRape Crisis Centresโฃ๏ธoffer much-needed support to people who have been assaulted across England and Wales @rapecrisisew but demand way outstrips supply.โ—๏ธThis time last year there were 6355 survivors on Rape Crisis waiting lists and these can be as long as 14 months.โ€ผ๏ธ This means that if a survivor calls to look for support they may be turned away...
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โŒ›๏ธ๐Ÿ’ท Successive UK governments have failed to fund life-saving services. There are just 44 Rape Crisis Centres in England and Wales. ๐ŸŽฏ But the Istanbul Convention which our Government will soon ratify sets out a minimum provision of support for victims of rape which would require that there be 150 Rape Crisis Centres in England and Wales. ๐Ÿšจ It&amprsquos simply unacceptable that a country like mine falls so far short of the minimum standards set across Europe.
