Do you believe we can't go backwards?

Do you believe that we mustn't lose our hard-won sexual health rights to contraception, abortion and education? Are you worried that cuts to funding, changes in policy and the rise of a more extreme and aggressive anti-choice movement could have an impact on your rights? Then let your elected Member of Parliament (MP) know!

The majority of people in the UK believe in women’s and young people’s choices when it comes to sexual health services. But decision-makers rarely hear from them. Instead they receive many messages from the small but vocal anti-choice minority. We need your help to give MPs a true picture of public opinion.

Contact your MP. Tell them you support XES – We Can't Go Backwards and ask them to use their influence to protect our rights to sexual health services, information, advice and education.
