About us

Right To Life (RTL) is the UK’s premier pluralistic secular campaigning and charitable organisation advancing the recognition and sustaining of human dignity, particularly through consistent protection for the right to life of every human being from conception to natural death.

We are committed to an evidence-based approach to the issues, uniting people from different philosophical beliefs (including those who are non-religious, religious, or agnostic) and political ideologies in affirming what all individuals of good will recognise: the justice and necessity of protecting the most basic rights of every member of the human family, and especially the most vulnerable members of our society.

A leading provider of political intelligence and education on contemporary issues in which the human right to life is fought for and defended, RTL have informed ordinary members of the public and enabled them to act as citizens in defence of those whose dignity and life is endangered.

RTL also works to build a society in which the dignity of vulnerable people is respected by providing practical and compassionate support, as exemplified in our help for vulnerable women and hospital patients. We provide support for pregnant women in difficult circumstances and work for the sick and the elderly: people who find themselves in need and have nowhere else to turn. We have also supported a number of families who have been concerned about the hospital treatment received by relatives at the end of life.
