Delivered to the PM at No. 10 today

Thanks to the help of tens of thousands of people like you around the country who have asked friends and family to sign the petition calling for a reduction in the abortion time limit, we passed our goal of getting 100,000 signatures.

In fact, we reached an amazing 102,573 signatures last night!


After reaching this amazing milestone, parents of children who were born at 22 and 23 weeks gestation who are backing Caroline Ansell’s amendment met with a number of MPs at an event that was held in Parliament today. 

The MPs heard the parents’ personal stories first hand and learned why they want to see the abortion time limit reduced to 22 weeks.

Following the event at Parliament, the families and a large group of MPs headed to 10 Downing Street where they delivered the petition, signed by 102,573 people, to the Prime Minister!

This is one of the largest petitions to be delivered to the Prime Minister over the last year and demonstrates the overwhelming support for this important pro-life change to the law.

You can read more about today and see photos of the delivery of the petition to 10 Downing Street in the article that we have just published on Right To Life News by clicking here.


Initially it looked like the Report Stage of the Criminal Justice Bill and a vote on Caroline Ansell’s 22 week amendment was going to happen before Easter, but the Government has confirmed that this is not the case.

This gives us more time to build further momentum for this important life saving change to our law.

We will be in contact shortly when the next development happens on this front. 

For now we want to thank you again for all your help with getting 102,573 signatures on the petition. Without you we would not have hit this amazing milestone and the delivery of the petition to the Prime Minister today would not have had such an impact! Thank you so much.
