Only 40 people turn up to UK March For Choice, thousands turn up to UK March For Life

Only around 40 people attended the UK ‘March for Choice’ held in London this Saturday. Meanwhile, the UK March for Life is reported to have had thousands attend. 

The ‘March for Choice’ was organised as a counter to the UK March for Life scheduled for the same time.

The event had been advertised significantly by a variety of ‘pro-choice’ social media channels and by a number of organisations.

Abortion Rights UK posted a Facebook Event to advertise the gathering, which received 9 responses out of their page’s 5,061 followers.

The group shouted at the pro-life demonstrators throughout the march, and during the concluding speeches in parliament square. They continued to shout and scream throughout an emotional speech given by a woman who had been pressured into an at-home medical abortion aged 19. 

Several speeches took place in which current legislation’s restriction on abortions after24 weeks of pregnancy was lamented. 

The ‘pro-choicers’ also chanted and sang ‘pro-abortion’ versions of a popular song, as they also did in 2019.

A spokesperson for Right To Life UK, Catherine Robinson, said: “What this poor turnout indicates is that there is incredibly low support for extreme policies – such as introducing abortion on demand, for any reason, up to birth – supported by many pro-choice activists. This is mirrored in polling, which shows that just 1% of the general population supports the goal of pro-choice campaigners’ to introduce abortion up-to-birth”.

“It is no wonder, therefore, that when it comes to turning up to an in-person event, the support just isn’t there. This is a stark contrast to the March For Life which attracted thousands of peaceful demonstrators”.

Dear reader,

Thanks to the support of people like you, on Monday 5 July, a major attempt to hijack the UK Government’s flagship Police , Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill with two extreme abortion proposals failed, in a major pro-life victory.

Unfortunately, this major defeat is not the end for our opposition.

The abortion lobby has already been successful at using the Coronavirus crisis to temporarily introduce ‘DIY’ home abortions.

The policy has not only accompanied a large increase in the number of lives ended by abortion but has also been linked to a number of serious incidents where women’s lives have been put at risk while performing their abortion at home.

Our opposition is now eager to see more widespread changes to legislation enacted and we are currently facing major threats on three fronts:

  1. The abortion lobby is further exploiting the COVID-19 crisis to attempt to make dangerous ‘DIY’ home abortions available permanently.
  2. The Northern Ireland Secretary has given himself new powers to force expanded abortion services on Northern Ireland.
  3. The assisted suicide lobby has brought foward a bill to legalise assisted suicide, which was introduced to the House of Lords on 26 May.

If these major threats from our opposition are successful, it would be a disaster. Thousands of lives would be lost. We can’t sit on the sidelines and watch these extreme anti-life changes become a reality.

As you can see, while we have won our most recent battle, we continue to be facing a very large challenge on life issues in the UK over the next couple of months – and we will be facing this across multiple fronts.

We are, therefore, appealing to you to please give as generously as you can. Every donation, no matter how small, will go towards saving the lives of the unborn and many others.

By stopping these threats, YOU can save lives over this coming period.

Will you make a special gift right now to help protect vulnerable lives from these threats?
