Press Comment: London St Patricks Day parade – an opportunity to celebrate the 100,000 lives saved by Northern Ireland’s abortion laws

Right To Life UK spokesperson, Clare McCarthy, said:

“100,000 people in Northern Ireland are alive today because Northern Ireland did not accept the same abortion law that was introduced into Britain in 1967. These people are mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, daughters and sons.”

“Two-thirds of women in Northern Ireland think that Westminster should not impose abortion laws on Northern Ireland. Any imposition of abortion law on Northern Ireland from Westminster would undermine devolution and the Good Friday Agreement.”

“The Saint Patrick’s Day parade in London is a time for the London-Irish community to join together and celebrate their unique cultural identity. Part of that heritage is the life-saving laws in Northern Ireland – 100,000 lives worth celebrating.”

Applications open for Right To Life UK summer internship programme

Applications are now open for the Right To Life UK Summer Internship Programme and will close on Monday, 15th April 2019.

Successful applicants will be able to work in the right-to-life office in central London, on the cutting edge of contemporary pro-life research and campaigning in the UK. They will be introduced to the UK Parliament, and to the creative world behind effective right-to-life activism.

We are looking for strongly-motivated individuals who feel they can contribute to the right-to-life cause on beginning-of-life (abortion; embryo-destructive research and practice) or end-of-life (assisted suicide; euthanasia) issues and bioethical controversies. Areas of work can include:

  • Media (e.g. online content, press relations)
  • Research (e.g. academic, statistical, political)
  • Digital (e.g. web design, videography, photography, copy-writing)
  • Project Management (e.g. campaign strategy, event organisation)

Those doing or possessing degrees (or who have experience) that is most relevant to our work will have an advantage, but we will discern the best candidates according to character also.

All interns are given a specific campaign area on which they will work, and are paired with a senior member of staff for mentoring.

If you would like to apply, please e-mail info@righttolife.org.uk a covering letter detailing why you would like to intern at Right To Life UK, and attaching a CV. We will respond promptly to all candidates, and those successfully considered will be offered an interview either at our central London offices or via Skype.
