Right To Life UK are hiring for a number of 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.

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.

General Election 2019: How you can help get pro-life candidates selected

GE2019: How you can help get pro-life candidates selected

We have analysed the voting records of the 61 MPs that have stood down so far: 44 of the 61 (72%) have a predominantly pro-abortion voting record in Parliament, and only 17 (28%) of them have a predominantly pro-life voting record.

What is now important is that pro-life candidates are selected in seats where a party is selecting a new candidate to stand in the election.

If you are a member of a party we have outlined some simple steps below which you can take to help have a pro-life candidate selected for your local constituency.

  1. Find out when your local candidate selection meeting is taking place – as these are announced, we will be adding these to the bottom of this page.

  2. Find out if questions for the candidates have to be submitted before the meeting, and if so, ensure that your question is submitted.

  3. Attend the candidate selection meetings and encourage any other members who are pro-life to attend.

  4. Ask each of the candidates a question that will help indicate whether they would vote pro-life if they became an MP. We have spoken to people in a number of the parties and they have suggested that asking a question on assisted suicide will be the most helpful. This is likely to be an issue that will arise in the next Parliament, is a reasonably good indicator that they are also likely to vote pro-life on abortion and is generally easier for candidates to speak on in a meeting than discussing the issue of abortion. Here is a sample question:

    In 2015 MPs voted overwhelmingly by 330 to 119 to reject a Bill to introduce assisted suicide to England and Wales. All major disability rights groups in Britain (including Disability Rights UK, SCOPE, UKDPC and Not Dead Yet UK) oppose any change in the law. Would you oppose any future attempts to introduce assisted suicide?

  5. Make sure you vote in the selection and encourage other members you know to do the same.

  6. Once a candidate is selected, please email us (info@righttolife.org.uk), to let us know how they responded to your questions.

Five days left to stop the introduction of Europe’s most extreme abortion law to NI – Take action now

There are now just over five days left to bring back the Northern Ireland Assembly (Stormont) and stop the introduction of Europe’s most extreme abortion regime to Northern Ireland.

Sinn Fein and the DUP are meeting tomorrow (Thursday) for an intensive phase of final talks and the DUP have announced that they are willing to now return to Stormont “without pre-condition”.

It is now vital that, ahead of Thursday, MLAs/MPs/party leaders receive a flood of emails making it clear that the people of Northern Ireland are demanding that they must reconvene Stormont this week.

We have this launched an email function with a new ‘final week’ pre-written letter, outlining a series of new important points, that we need to get in front of MLAs/MPs/party leaders now.

If you are from Northern Ireland, please urgently click the button below and take 30-seconds to send your ‘final week’ email.

Once you have sent your email, please then make sure as many people are emailing their MLAs by sharing the page with friends and family – and doing everything you can to get the word out and ensure we get a maximum number of emails to all involved before the talks begin on Thursday.

If you live outside Northern Ireland, please visit our Bring Back Stormont campaign for more information on actions you can take to help bring back Stormont during these final days.

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/
