Tell Sajid Javid – Please be an ally to women across the UK, not the abortion lobby

This week the abortion lobby are running a large online and in-Parliament campaign trying to force the Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, to fast-track the date that the draft Domestic Abuse Bill is brought forward to Parliament so they can hijack this Bill and amend it to introduce their extreme abortion proposal to Parliament. If they are successful, we could see the introduction of one of the world’s most radical abortion regimes across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Sajid is currently being inundated with emails and tweets from the public on this. They are doing this to give him the impression that there is genuine public demand for the abortion lobby’s radical proposals.


To show Sajid that there are equally many people that want him to stand strong on this, we have launched a petition to him.

We launched it at lunchtime yesterday and have already had a fantastic response with over 6000 people signing, but we need many more signatures on the petition so that it is very clear to Sajid Javid that he should not give in to the demands of the abortion lobby.

Please click the button below to sign the petition – it only takes 1-minute.

Dear reader

In 2020, the UK Government imposed an extreme abortion regime on Northern Ireland, which included a provision that legalised abortion right up to birth for disabilties including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot.

A new Bill has been launched at the Northern Ireland assembly that will remove the current provision that allows abortion for ‘severe fetal impairment’.

It is under these grounds in the regulations that babies with disabilities including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot can currently be singled out for abortion in Northern Ireland because of their disability and can be aborted right up to birth.

Before the new abortion regime was imposed on Northern Ireland in 2020, disability-selective abortion for conditions such as Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot was not legal and there was a culture of welcoming and supporting people with these disabilities rather than eliminating them.

This is reflected directly in the latest figures (2016) from the Department of Health in Northern Ireland, which show that while there were 52 children born with Down’s syndrome in Northern Ireland, in the same year only 1 child from Northern Ireland with Down’s syndrome was aborted in England and Wales. 

This contrasts with the situation in the rest of the United Kingdom where disability-selective abortion has been legal since 1967.

The latest available figures show that 90% of children diagnosed with Down’s syndrome before birth are aborted in England and Wales.

We are, therefore, asking people like you to take 30 seconds of your time and add your support to the campaign to stop abortion up to birth for disabilities including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot in Northern Ireland.

If you live in Northern Ireland: 
Ask your MLAs to vote to stop abortion up to birth for disabilities including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot:

If you live outside Northern Ireland:
