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 from people like you, in July, a major attempt to hijack the UK Government’s Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - to introduce abortion on demand, for any reason, up to birth - failed, in a major pro-life victory.

Unfortunately, this is not the end for our opposition.

We are currently facing major threats on four separate fronts:

  1. The abortion lobby is expected to make another attempt to change abortion law to allow abortion on demand, for any reason, up to birth. A similar law was introduced to New Zealand last year and recently released data shows that the country saw a 43% increase in late-term abortions in 2020.
  2. The assisted suicide lobby has brought forward a bill to legalise assisted suicide, which will be receiving a Second Reading in the House of Lords on 22 October.
  3. The Northern Ireland Secretary has given himself new powers to force expanded abortion services on Northern Ireland and abortion campaigners are also running a large campaign to try and introduce ‘DIY’ home abortions to Northern Ireland.
  4. The abortion lobby is further exploiting the COVID-19 crisis to attempt to make dangerous ‘DIY’ home abortions available permanently.

If these major threats from our opposition are successful, it would be a disaster. Thousands of lives would be lost. 

Fighting both the abortion and assisted suicide lobbies over this period has already made a huge dent in Right To Life UK's limited resources.

We are, therefore, asking people like you to please give as generously as you can. Every donation, no matter how small, will make a significant difference.

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?
