Unite & ERG welcome meeting with Government

Unite the Union and Equality Rights Group’s joint Pro-Choice Campaign team, which launched the demands for legislative change to existing Gibraltar law on women’s reproductive rights last May, today met with the Chief Minister and his team to review and discuss Government’s proposals for change in this area of law.

‘As part of our extended work to mark International Safe Abortion Day announced yesterday, the joint Unite/Equality Rights Group Pro-Choice Campaign team will be carefully studying Government’s proposals as contained in the Command Paper. It is incumbent upon us to give a considered and thoughtful response.

“We shall, therefore, be studying the proposals and advancing our detailed appreciations to Government directly, as well as publicly to the community at large in due course,’ a Campaign spokesperson said.

‘In the meantime, we have expressed our thanks to the Government team for the manner in which, despite extrordinary political pressures at this time with Brexit and other matters, they have unhesitatingly responded to the call of this community to attend to this long-standing issue. Credit where it is due .’
