Thousands expected to join March For Life online

Thousands are expected to take part in March for Life UK’s online Lifestream 20 event tomorrow (Saturday 13 June 2020).

Attendance and momentum has been building since the UK launched its first March for Life, in 2012.

Last year almost 5,000 people gathered outside the UK Parliament in London.

However, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s event has been taken online.

Lifestream 20 will include testimonies, live Q&A’s, and workshops from some of the world’s best pro-life speaks as well as short films, music, and much more.

A concurrent stream will also carry age-appropriate material for younger children including book-readings, music and more.

For full details of the event, register for an information pack on the March for Life UK website or visit their Facebook page.  

Before COVID-19 caused many parts of the world to go into ‘lockdown’, pro-life demonstrations were seeing record attendance numbers.

Earlier this year, hundreds of thousands of people attended the US March for Life, a record-breaking 9,000 people attended the March for Life in Chicago, Illinois, and over 8,000 people gathered for the Celebrate Life rally in Denver, Colorado carrying signs that read, “Civil rights begin in the womb” and “I am the pro-life generation.”

In 2019, over 50,000 Slovakians called on the country’s leaders to protect unborn babies. 

Pro-life demonstrations in Northern Ireland have reached over 20,000 people, while over 11,000 marched for life in the Netherlands, and over 2,000 people attended New Zealand’s March for Life.This year’s event comes just days after the UK Department of Health and Social Care revealed abortions in England & Wales reached an all-time high with 209,519 lives lost in 2019.

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?
