  2. John – it’s been in the back of my head for days now – what’s the significance of the coathanger as a symbol?

  3. Dylan,

    The coat hanger symbolizes the back street abortions that occurred when it was illegal in the US – killing and injuring women. In 1965 all abortions, with some exceptions, were made illegal in all 50 states. But in 1973, the Roe v Wade case reversed it and the law was declared unconstitutional. The respective pro & con groups have been going at it since then.

  4. thanks for the info John

    in northern ireland where i live, abortions are illegal (despite being part of the UK) so many women have to travel to england to have the operation (should they choose to do so)

    in Belfast you occasionally see anti abortionists but there doesn’t seem to be any pro-choice movement – at least on the streets….
