Event: The biggest threat to the unborn child since 1967

The UK already has one of the most radical abortion laws in the world. Now, we are facing the biggest threat to the unborn child since 1967 – this autumn, the abortion lobby is set to attempt to introduce an extreme abortion proposal to Parliament which aims to remove almost all legal safeguards around abortion.

At this event, Lord Alton and Baroness O’Loan, champions of the cause in the House of Lords, will give their perspectives both into what is happening in Westminster, the counter-campaign which they are spearheading and what you can do stop this extreme law change. 

Complimentary light refreshments will be served after the talk.

Please do invite along friends and family using the Facebook event set-up here: https://www.facebook.com/events/424132034866373/

  • Tuesday, 10 September 2019 from 18:45-20:00
  • St Wilfrid’s Hall, Brompton Oratory, Brompton Rd, Knightsbridge, London SW7 2RP

Live in NZ? Kiwi voter living in the UK? Email your MP asking them to vote against the Government’s extreme abortion up to birth bill

If you are New Zealand voter, please urgently email your MPs asking them to vote against this extreme abortion Bill on Thursday.

You can do this by following the easy steps below.

1. Quickly draft an email

It is far better if this email is in your own words, but if you don’t have time, we have written up a quick email below which you can use.

Please be charitable, polite and respectful in the messages you send to MPs.

Please contact as many MPs as you can. Individual emails are the most effective, especially if you are contacting your local MP.

IF WRITING YOU OWN EMAIL – PLEASE CONVEY THE FOLLOWING POINTS

  • Vote NO to the Abortion Legislation Bill on Thursday.
  • The Bill removes the current restrictions that only allow abortions after 20 weeks to save the life of the mother or to protect from serious harm and replaces them with loose and arbitrary criteria.
  • In the small number of Australian states that have similar ‘abortion up to birth’ provisions these provision in practice have allowed for abortion to be available for any reason right through to birth.
  • This would also, in practice, lift the current time limit for disability-selective abortions for babies including those with Down’s syndrome from 20-weeks, right through to birth.
  • The Bill contains no substantial provisions to offer women alternatives to abortion.
  • If you have a personal story about abortion, unplanned pregnancy, or anything else that might be relevant to this Bill then please share that too.
  • Make it clear that this is an important issue to you and how the MP votes on Thursday will determine whether you vote for them in the next election.


IF DON’T HAVE TIME TO WRITE AN EMAIL, PLEASE USE THE FOLLOWING COPY

Dear MP,

I am writing to you to ask you to vote NO to the Abortion Legislation Bill on Thursday.

The Bill removes the current restrictions that only allow abortions after 20 weeks to save the life of the mother or to protect from serious harm and replaces them with loose and arbitrary criteria.

In the small number of Australian states that have similar ‘abortion up to birth’ provisions, these provision in practice have allowed for abortion to be available, for any reason, right through to birth.

This would also, in practice, lift the current time limit for disability-selective abortions for babies including those with Down’s syndrome from 20-weeks, right through to birth.

As a voter, this is the most important issue to me, and how you vote on Thursday will determine who I vote for in the next election.

Please vote NO on Thursday.

Right To Life UK are hiring for a number of permanent and short-term positions

Right To Life UK is a campaigning and charitable organisation focused on life issues – abortion, assisted suicide and embryo research. We protect and defend the right to life of every human being from conception to natural death through our work across education, politics, the media and through a large network of people in constituencies across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

This autumn, the abortion lobby are planning to bring forward legislation that will remove almost all existing legal safeguards around abortion in England and Wales.

We will be facing the biggest battle on abortion since 1967.

Right To Life UK is looking for hard-working, passionate, professional individuals to join us to ensure we have the team in place to defeat these proposals. The team will then move onto a large push across media, public affairs and grassroots to deliver positive changes to policy and culture which will save lives and support women in unplanned pregnancies.

We are seeking both permanent staff and those who are available for a short-term contract for a fixed period of time ahead of the threat coming forward this Autumn (September/October).

Permanent positions

Media Officer

Director of Media

Public Affairs Officer

Director of Public Affairs

Operations Officer

Director of Operations

Director of Development

Content Officer

Digital specialists – we are looking for a wide range of digital skills to fit in with our current team. We are looking to talk to anyone with digital specialities – across social, full-stack development, SEO etc. Please send your CV to us at careers@righttolife.org.uk and we will be in contact to discuss further.

Short-term

We are looking for people who can join our team for the short term to ensure we have the capacity to defeat abortion proposals coming forward in the autumn.

We are particularly looking for anyone who is available to either volunteer or work on a paid basis who has media, digital, public affairs or campaigning skills

We are also open to talking to people from other skill areas who can demonstrate that they will be able to enhance the organisation’s ability to defeat the proposals which are coming forward in Parliament.

If candidates are willing and able to take annual leave from their current jobs to support us ahead of this major challenge, Right To Life UK is open to covering their salaries over this important period.

Urgent action alert – Serious threat in Lords this afternoon. Please email a Peer now.

Pro-abortion campaigner Baroness Barker and colleagues have brought forward a series of amendments (12,19, 21 and 24) to the Northern Ireland Bill in the Lords which will make Stella Creasy’s abortion amendments from the Commons far worse.

If these amendments pass, abortion on demand, for any reason, up to 28 weeks will be introduced to Northern Ireland. Thousands of lives are likely to be lost.

These amendments are likely to be voted on within hours.

Please use the function below to take 30-seconds to write to a Peer asking them to vote against the Barker amendments this afternoon.

Once you have emailed a Peer, please urgently get friends and family to do the same.
