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 2006 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.
