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.

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.
