In many countries in the world women can face prosecution for having an abortion. You might not think that that list includes the UK, but it does. In the coming weeks, Dame Diana Johnson MP’s amendment to the Criminal Justice Bill will be voted on by MPs. If passed into law, this would mean that women in England and Wales will no longer face criminal investigation for ending their own pregnancy.

In response to the vote, global sexual and reproductive health provider MSI Reproductive Choices has partnered with Uncommon Creative Studio – this is the same team behind the powerful Every Choice campaign we covered at the end of last year. Illustrated by Noma Bar – of The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood book cover fame – the image shows a woman behind bars, in the shape of the female reproductive system.
