BREAKING: The Govt. has just announced…

The Leader of the House of Commons, Penny Mordaunt, has just announced that Report Stage of the Criminal Justice Bill is going to be on Wednesday 15 May.

This means that we have under two weeks until the biggest battle on abortion in a generation.

On Wednesday 15 May, MPs will be given the opportunity to vote on two positive changes to the law – one amendment tabled by Caroline Ansell MP to lower the abortion time limit from 24 weeks to 22 weeks – and another tabled by Liam Fox MP that would bring the abortion time limit for babies with Down’s syndrome in line with the time limit for babies that do not have disabilities (as you likely know, abortion for Down’s syndrome is currently legal right up to birth).

MPs will also have the opportunity to vote on two extreme abortion up to birth amendments that have been tabled by pro-abortion MPs Stella Creasy and Diana Johnson.

We just wanted to let you know that I will be in contact more frequently than usual over the next couple of weeks with campaign actions for you to take. These will be easy actions you can take that will be crucial to building momentum behind the pro-life amendments and giving them the best chance of passing – as well as ensuring these extreme abortion up to birth amendments are defeated.

Please keep an eye out for emails that we send and be ready to take action.

Many lives are at stake here. Actions you take ahead of these votes, such as writing to your MP, will play a big part in persuading MPs to vote the right way.
