Thanks to the support from people like you, in July, a major attempt to hijack the UK Government’s Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill – to introduce abortion on demand, for any reason, up to birth – failed, in a major pro-life victory.
Unfortunately, this is not the end for our opposition.
THE NEXT MOVE FROM THE ABORTION AND ASSISTED SUICIDE LOBBIES
The abortion lobby has already been successful at using the Coronavirus crisis to introduce home ‘DIY’ abortions.
Our opposition is now eager to see more widespread changes to legislation and we are expecting major threats in the new Parliamentary year, which begins in May, across three separate fronts:
- The abortion lobby is likely to make another attempt to change abortion law to allow abortion on demand, for any reason, up to birth. A similar law was introduced to New Zealand in 2020 and that country saw a 43% increase in late-term abortions in the same year.
- We expect the assisted suicide lobby to bring forward a Private Members’ Bill or hijack a Government Bill to attempt to introduce assisted suicide.
- The Northern Ireland Secretary has given himself powers to force expanded abortion services on Northern Ireland and has made it clear that he will attempt to use these powers to force expanded abortion on Northern Ireland after the Stormont elections in May.
If these major threats from our opposition are successful, it would be a disaster. Thousands of lives would be lost. We can’t sit on the sidelines and watch these extreme anti-life changes become a reality.
WE CAN ONLY DEFEAT THESE MAJOR THREATS WITH YOUR HELP
As you can see, we will be facing a very large challenge on life issues in the UK over the next couple of months – and we will be facing this across multiple fronts.
Fighting both the abortion and assisted suicide lobbies over the last couple of months has already taken a significant amount of Right To Life UK’s limited resources.
We are, therefore, appealing to you to please give as generously as you can. Every donation, no matter how small, will go towards saving the lives of the unborn and many others.
By stopping these threats, YOU can save lives over this coming period.
Will you make a special gift right now to help protect vulnerable lives from these threats?
