Hiring for pro-life positions in London

As you know, earlier this year an attempt to introduce an extreme abortion law to England and Wales by hijacking the Domestic Abuse Bill was defeated in Parliament.

While this was a great victory, this is not the end of the abortion lobby’s campaign to introduce an extreme abortion law. We are now expecting another attempt ahead of the 2024 election from the abortion lobby to bring forward a similarly extreme change to abortion law. Unfortunately we are also expecting the assisted suicide lobby to attempt, once again, to try to introduce assisted suicide over this period.

This means we will be facing battles on two major fronts, likely at the same time.

We are now working on ensuring that we have all the key infrastructure in place to be able to defeat both these upcoming attempts – and ensure that we don’t just react to our opposition, but are continuing to move forward with all our other vital proactive work across education, media, public affairs and grassroots, to deliver positive change to policy and culture which will save lives and support women with unplanned pregnancies.

WE’RE HIRING

As part of our preparations, we are now hiring for a number of positions across education, media, public affairs, digital and operations.

We are looking for highly-skilled, hard-working, professional individuals to join us to ensure we have the right team in place.

If this is of interest to you or if you know of anyone that would be suitable for one of the positions, please click the button below to view the roles we are looking to hire for and learn how to apply.

Dear reader

In 2020, the UK Government imposed an extreme abortion regime on Northern Ireland, which included a provision that legalised abortion right up to birth for disabilties including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot.

A new Bill has been launched at the Northern Ireland assembly that will remove the current provision that allows abortion for ‘severe fetal impairment’.

It is under these grounds in the regulations that babies with disabilities including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot can currently be singled out for abortion in Northern Ireland because of their disability and can be aborted right up to birth.

Before the new abortion regime was imposed on Northern Ireland in 2020, disability-selective abortion for conditions such as Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot was not legal and there was a culture of welcoming and supporting people with these disabilities rather than eliminating them.

This is reflected directly in the latest figures (2016) from the Department of Health in Northern Ireland, which show that while there were 52 children born with Down’s syndrome in Northern Ireland, in the same year only 1 child from Northern Ireland with Down’s syndrome was aborted in England and Wales. 

This contrasts with the situation in the rest of the United Kingdom where disability-selective abortion has been legal since 1967.

The latest available figures show that 90% of children diagnosed with Down’s syndrome before birth are aborted in England and Wales.

We are, therefore, asking people like you to take 30 seconds of your time and add your support to the campaign to stop abortion up to birth for disabilities including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot in Northern Ireland.

If you live in Northern Ireland: 
Ask your MLAs to vote to stop abortion up to birth for disabilities including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot:

If you live outside Northern Ireland:
