child poverty, reproductive choice 

BPAS are fighting the UK govt's plan to place a 2-child limit on welfare support, a plan that has been described this way: "If you were designing a policy to increase child poverty, it would be hard to do better than this."

BPAS are fighting this because they don't want anyone to be pushed into having an abortion they don't want out of the fear of becoming destitute.

Sometimes I forget that pro-choice campaigning is about ALL kinds of reproductive choice, and this has been a useful reminder for me today.

If your "pro-life" organisation isn't doing any work to get actual living children out of poverty, it's not pro-life, it's just anti-bodily-autonomy.
