Furedi has worked in pro-choice organizations for more than 20 years, mainly in policy and communications. She ran the press office of the UK Family Planning Association before leading Birth Control Trust, a charity that advocated the need for research and development in methods of contraception and abortion. Before joining BPAS, as its chief executive in June 2003, Furedi was Director of Policy and Communications for the UK regulator of infertility treatment and embryo research, the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA). She is regarded as a leading pro-choice advocate and spokesperson, often appearing in the media representing this perspective.
Prior to her career in pro-choice organizations, Furedi was a journalist, specialising in healthcare features for women's magazines including Cosmopolitan and Company, sometimes writing under her 'maiden name', Bradley. She is also known as Ann Burton.
Ann Furedi was a contributor to the party's LM Magazine until it folded in 2000 after being found guilty of libelling ITN journalists. She has also contributed to Spiked Online, an online magazine, that identifies itself as libertarian humanist.
