Thank you to everyone who has shared our resources outlining the voting record of the Conservative leadership candidates on abortion and assisted suicide.
Tens of thousands of people have visited these resources since we launched them the day that Boris Johnson announced his resignation – and a number of MPs have been in contact to say that they have found the resources very helpful as they have decided which candidate to vote for.
Now we are down to the final two, Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss, we’ll be keeping you updated via Right To Life News on any developments that may take place on the abortion or assisted suicide fronts as the next phase of the leadership race goes ahead.
INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDERS BLOCKING WEBSITE
Some of our supporters have reported that our website has been blocked by the content filter provided by their internet service provider, which prevents adult content from being viewed.
This has either resulted in the adult content filter delivering a page stating, incorrectly, that our site includes adult content or, for many people, a page that says that ‘This site can’t provide a secure connection’ as their browser is diverted away from our site onto an adult content filter page that has not been set up with the correct security certificates.
This has been an ongoing issue for Three mobile customers in particular, but we have also had reports of other internet service providers doing the same.
I am happy to let you know that, after a number of months going back and forth with Three mobile, which eventually involved an intervention from the British Board of Film Classification, our site is no longer blocked for Three mobile customers with adult filters.
After reviewing our website, the British Board of Film Classification ruled that the evidence-based content covering the issue of abortion on the Right To Life UK website should not be classified as adult content and that Three should not be blocking our website.
We are really happy to have this issue fixed and encourage you to visit our site again if you have been having these issues.
Please also email us if you do see our site blocked in the future so that we can contact your internet service provider and ensure that the site is removed from their filters as soon as possible.
Finally, as you may have seen in the media, Heidi Crowter and Máire Lea-Wilson’s case against the UK Government over the current discriminatory abortion law that allows abortion up to birth for Down’s syndrome was heard in the Court of Appeal last week.
The case received positive coverage in several mainstream media outlets.
