Sadiq Khan, the Labour Mayor of London, has backed the ‘message and aims’ of the activism of Abortion Rights—a radical pro-abortion group. Describing abortion as a ‘basic right,’ Khan stated in a letter to Kerry Abel, chair of the pro-choice organisation, that he has a ‘long-standing history of supporting the right of women to have an abortion.’ 

Abortion Rights campaign for a right to abortion for any reason and at any time, including sex-selective abortion, abortion for disability, and late-term abortion.

The claim that abortion is a basic right has been growing in acceptance in recent years, being driven from the top through the United Nations.
