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 temporarily introduce home ‘DIY’ abortions.
The policy has not only accompanied a large increase in the number of lives ended by abortion but has also been linked to a number of serious incidents where women’s lives have been put at risk while performing their abortion at home.
Our opposition is now eager to see more widespread changes to legislation enacted and we are currently facing major threats on four separate fronts:
- The abortion lobby is expected 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 last year and recently-released data shows that the country saw a 43% increase in late-term abortions in 2020.
- The assisted suicide lobby has brought forward a bill to legalise assisted suicide, which will be receiving a Second Reading in the House of Lords on 22 October.
- The Northern Ireland Secretary has given himself new powers to force expanded abortion services on Northern Ireland and abortion campaigners are also running a large campaign to try and introduce ‘DIY’ home abortions to Northern Ireland.
- The abortion lobby is further exploiting the COVID-19 crisis to attempt to make dangerous ‘DIY’ home abortions available permanently.
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.
