Kia ora koutou katoa. Welcome to the Prochoice Highway, a one-off information, book and listening tour, supported by the Abortion Law Reform Association of New Zealand (ALRANZ), the Women’s National Abortion Action Campaign (WONAAC), Mothers for Choice and numerous generous individuals.

Through the winter 2013, the Highway organised some meetings and book-related events throughout Aotearoa-New Zealand, as well as sought feedback, did some fund-raising and made Stuff. The Highway proper began on 15 September 2013 when started out On the Road for Reproductive Justice.

The Highway is busy touring Aotearoa-New Zealand with a books, information and activities stall, setting up in towns and cities near and far. We  want to raise awareness and listen: to get feedback on how reproductive justice issues impact people living in Aotearoa-New Zealand. True, the Highway — like the revolution — probably won’t be televised, but it will be multimedia blogged right here, and, per the top of the post,  you can also follow the highway by signing up for email updates here, via @alranztweets and on ALRANZ’s Facebook page. (ALRANZ is the best place to go if you want to keep up with reproductive rights news, including the blog and Web site.)

If you would like to join in or help out, meet us for a coffee and a chat, organise a more formal get-together or have good intel for places to set up the stall, please get in touch. Contact info is here: Support the Highway page.
