Ask your MP to vote against Diana Johnson’s extreme abortion bill on 23 October 2018

On Tuesday 23 October 2018 Diana Johnson MP is bringing forward a Ten Minute Rule Bill to the House of Commons. She is seeking to introduce one of the most extreme abortion regimes in the world right across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

While Ten Minute Rule Bills rarely become law and the vote will not be binding on the Government, the abortion lobby are attempting to use a vote on this Bill to create momentum in Parliament, ahead of bringing forward an amendment to the Domestic Abuse Bill to introduce these radical changes to abortion legislation.

It is vital that we have as many MPs as possible vote against this radical proposal to ensure we can stop it gaining momentum in Parliament.

You can help by urgently writing to your MP asking them to attend the debate on Tuesday October 23rd and encourage them to vote against this radical bill.

This only takes two minutes by using the email function we have set-up – you can access it by clicking here.

Further information on the Bill is available in the short briefing note here.

We know that MPs will be receiving a large number of emails from abortion campaigners pushing them to support this proposal. It is vital that your MP is aware of the extreme nature of what is being proposed here and that many constituents are encouraging them to vote against this Bill.

Please do therefore ask your friends to write to their MP and share this on social media.
