Pro-life charity launches heartfelt election ad spot, ahead of polling day

UK pro-life charity, Right To Life UK, has launched an emotive and rousing advert ahead of tomorrow’s general election.

Released on the eve of polling day, the sixty-second ad called Her Future encourages people from the UK to ensure that people remember the unborn and vote for life in the election tomorrow. 

The election is part of their 2019 Vote For Both Lives general election campaign which has involved thousands of people from around the United Kingdom contacting MP candidates and has resulted in over 100 MP candidates signing the campaign’s Both Lives Pledge.

The advertisement, an in-house media production, by Right To Life UK’s digital team, celebrates the miracle of every life – whether expected or unexpected, born or unborn – and the importance of using your vote to protect and support both lives this election.

The 2019 general election comes after what has arguably been the worst parliament on record when it comes to life issues after MPs in Westminster voted to impose Europe’s most extreme abortion law on Northern Ireland. 

Since the Conservatives took power in 2010, the Department for International Development has increased its contributions to the abortion giant Marie Stopes International (MSI) by over 1300% from £3,231,000 in 2010 to £48,173,000 in 2018.

The Labour Party manifesto, released last month, outlines (page 48) that the party is seeking to ‘decriminalise abortions’, which would introduce abortion, on-demand, for any reason, up to birth in the UK. It has prompted thousands of people to sign a petition urging Jeremy Corbyn to scrap the pledge.

The Liberal Democrats also pledged to ‘decriminalise’ abortion but limit this change to 24-weeks. They also pledged to “fund abortion clinics to provide their services free of charge to service users regardless of nationality or residency” and they have also committed to introducing ‘censorship zones’ around abortion clinics to make it a crime to offer support to women outside abortion clinics.

Right To Life UK are encouraging supporters to find out where their local candidates stand on abortion by visiting their recently launched candidate database tool which details voting records and which pledges a particular candidate has signed.

Dear reader,

You may be surprised to learn that our 24-week abortion time limit is out of line with the majority of European Union countries, where the most common time limit for abortion on demand or on broad social grounds is 12 weeks gestation.

The latest guidance from the British Association of Perinatal Medicine enables doctors to intervene to save premature babies from 22 weeks. The latest research indicates that a significant number of babies born at 22 weeks gestation can survive outside the womb, and this number increases with proactive perinatal care.

This leaves a real contradiction in British law. In one room of a hospital, doctors could be working to save a baby born alive at 23 weeks whilst, in another room of that same hospital, a doctor could perform an abortion that would end the life of a baby at the same age.

The majority of the British population support reducing the time limit. Polling has shown that 70% of British women favour a reduction in the time limit from 24 weeks to 20 weeks or below.
