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”.

Ask your local representatives to take the Both Lives Pledge

Dear reader, 

Last year, abortion campaigners brought forward an amendment to the UK Government’s flagship Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill that would have introduced abortion on demand, for any reason, up to birth (including sex-selective abortion).

Thanks to the support from people like you, this amendment did not go to a vote and pass, but we expect the abortion lobby to make another attempt to introduce this extreme abortion law change shortly.

This would be the single biggest change to abortion legislation since 1967 and would leave England and Wales with one of the most extreme abortion laws in the world.

Please sign the petition to Boris Johnson, asking him to ensure that his Government does everything in its power to stop the introduction of abortion up to birth.
