1967 Abortion Act

January 23, 2018

Were you in your late teens or 20s in the “Swinging 60s?

We need your help to tell the vitally important story about the lives of women in Wales before the 1967 Abortion Act…

Marking 50 years since the implementation of the 1967 Abortion Act, Yeti Television are making a documentary for BBC Wales about abortion and the impact this transformative piece of legislation had on the lives of Welsh women.  This oral history film will tell the story of how the fight for safe and legal abortion was won and explore the desperate measures women were forced into before the act was passed.

We want to hear from women whose lives were affected by abortion and who are willing to talk to us in confidence.  We would like to speak to women involved in campaigning around this issue and to health professionals including doctors, nurses and GPs who may have stories about this subject from the 1960s. In particular we would like to speak to women who had experience of home induced or back street abortions prior to 1967.

We can assure everyone that we are treating the subject with the sensitivity it deserves and are passionate about telling the vitally important story about the 1967 Act and its ramifications to date.

All contact will be in the strictest confidence.

If you are able to help please email or phone or text 07855 358525 and ask for Jacci.

The area has a wealth of stories ranging from the history of the slate quarries to the legends of the Mabinogi. As well as visiting the place where a quarter of the country’s wealth was hidden during World War Two, we hear about a very special mode of transport and try to answer the question, does it really rain all the time in Blaenau Ffestiniog
