Abortion Rights UK
Abortion Rights is the national pro-choice campaign.We are campaigning to defend and extend women's rights and access to safe,legal abortion. We believe the law should be brought into line with public opinion - so that women can make their own reproductive decisions without the current unfair legal barriers, obstructions and delays.
A recent study has found that a quarter of those participating said that they can’t sleep without their trusty pillow - and a fifth admitting that they take their pillows on holiday.
Do you take your pillow on your holiday with you? Vote in our poll.
On today’s episode of Loose Women, our very own Coleen Nolan is the lucky lady to try out the current Japenese craze of adult swaddling.
LOOSE WOMEN ARE HEADING OUT OF THE STUDIO AND TAKING THEIR STRAIGHT TALKING OPINIONS ON THE ROAD.
It’s time to buckle up as four of the loosest ladies come live, late and unleashed. Andrea McLean, Coleen Nolan, Nadia Sawalha and Saira Khan will be taking to the stage to present Loose Women Late: Girls' Night Out at Birmingham’s NEC for one night only on Friday 17th May, with lively chat, surprises, secrets shared and plenty of laughs on the bill.
No strangers to a studio audience, the Loose Women will be joined by their biggest live event audience to date. Swapping the studio set for the stage, they’ll be bringing the warm, humorous and straight talking daytime show to Birmingham for a night to seriously remember.
Andrea McLean is set to take on the challenge of her life, running a very special race - in her pants!
She says about the 10k challenge: "My MISSION in life is to make women feel good about themselves. To feel confident in themselves, their abilities and who they are. And I want to do that by showing that if I can do something that is way out of my comfort zone, then so can you... What are our bodies anyway? They’re just the skin that carry around our hearts, our minds and our souls. They’re the vehicle for ‘us’, the people inside. Will I like it? Possibly not. Can I do it? Damn right I can."

Prince Harry has opened up about becoming a dad to his son Archie, saying it made him feel the loss of his mum more keenly. Harry, 34, said: "missing my mother is like missing some kind of security, how you need that as a son and it falls away when you lose your mother."
Harry was just 12 years old when he lost him mum in a fatal car crash. Princess Diana died in August 1997 and her loss has been mourned by the nation ever since.
Our panel of Saira Khan, Kaye Adams, Brenda Edwards and Gloria Hunniford shared their own stories of loss today, discussing whether the birth of a child can sometimes open the wounds of losing a loved one all over again.
