We are very excited to introduce our new digital news service.
This news service has been launched so that we can reach a far wider audience of people with UK focussed, pro-life news that will keep people informed and help change even more hearts and minds on life issues.
We currently have good relationships with a number of mainstream media outlets which ensures that we get to regularly comment in the media. That said, we can’t always ensure that these articles cover all the key points that the public need to know about a given issue.
We are also concerned that some outlets are moving to position themselves as effectively ‘campaigning’ journalists for abortion access, the most recent example being the changes to the Guardian’s guidelines on how they report on abortion, a move which follows long term bias from the BBC in their language guidelines. If this trend continues, it will become increasingly more difficult for the mainstream public to be informed on the pro-life side of the debates on issues such as abortion.
Our news service will ensure that we have a platform where reliable pro-life news and views are accessible to everyone in the UK and that we are not limited by what editors in major newspapers choose to publish.
Launching this digitally has meant that providing this service has been financially feasible because we will not face many of the costs that traditional media outlets face with print distribution. This digital model will also mean that we can get content out to readers far quicker with daily updates to the service to ensure that our readership are up-to-date with breaking news on life issues.
We will also be amplifying the reach of the content featured on the news service through the audience across our social media channels on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. This will ensure that very large audiences are seeing the content from the news service on a daily basis and we are changing more hearts and minds.
We have designed the platform from the ground up so that is easily viewable across desktop, mobile and tablet, as increasing numbers of people are accessing content on their mobile phones and tablet devices. Our team have also put a lot of work into designing a look and feel for the service that is of professional standard similar to what you would expect to see from a major news outlet.
Features of the service
News – This section will feature daily articles covering the latest news on life issues. It will focus on developments on life issues in the United Kingdom and will provide the public with timely, well-researched content that will ensure that they are informed and up-to-date on these issues.
Opinion – We are going to be working with a number of UK based writers to provide commentary and opinion on developments around life issues. These opinion pieces will complement the main news service providing further analysis and commentary. If you are a good writer and are interested in writing for us, please do get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org – please include links in your email to any past opinion pieces you have written.
Favourites from the web – In this section, we will be curating the best analysis and commentary from around the web on pro-life issues. Again, this will be focussing on featuring articles from UK news outlets but at times will also feature exceptionally good commentary from overseas.
Press releases – The news service will also provide a new home to feature our press releases and comments so that this is easily accessible to journalists writing on these issues.
Updates and resources – In this section you will find useful resources and updates so you can keep up-to-date on our work across the media, politics and grass-roots to create positive change on life issues in the UK.
