Members of the RCM have expressed outrage on hearing of the stance taken by Prof Warwick, their chief executive, who has signed up their Union in support of a campaign to abolish the upper time limit on abortion.  This decision was reached by all accounts without any consultation of member midwives.

On 23rd May, BBC 5 Live broadcast their morning radio show from an abortion clinic, in the hope of giving ‘an insight into an area of British life which is taboo’. There is a recording of the programme here, or if you get in touch, the ProLife Alliance can provide a written transcript of the programme.  The programme followed the...

Posted on 26 June 2012.
In an update to the terrible story of Feng Jia Mei’s forced abortion, it seems that victimisation of her family continues, including the disappearance of her husband. Hansard shows that Lord Alton asked the British Government if they have discussed forced abortion with the Chinese Government recently.  The ProLife Alliance is pleased to see...

Posted on 26 June 2012.
The Guardian today castigated Youth Defence, an Irish pro-life group, for putting up posters around Ireland.  It went so far as to criticise the Irish Advertising Standards Authority for failing to ban these ‘scaremongering’ posters.  Surely the billboards must have been truly awful to persuade The Guardian to renounce its traditional...

Today The Guardian has published an article ahead of World Population Day.  In the article they concentrate on money and a wide-reaching world-population vision while completely ignoring the true stories of poor countries with different laws and views.  In countries as diverse as Uganda, Chile and Egypt abortion is in complete contravention...

Forced abortion in China is in the news again as a woman posts graphic pictures of her dead baby online. The embarrassment to the Chinese government must be huge, and may yet lead to this issue being taken seriously. We suggest viewers look at the website of US-based Women’s Rights without Frontiers who have campaigned tirelessly on the issue...

Posted on 14 June 2012.
When the BBC spent two hours in an abortion clinic last month there was complete silence from the medical team and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.   Now, at last, a doctor from BPAS decides to write about abortion, even if anonymously.   It is an interesting article.  The doctor agrees with many pro-lifers...

Posted on 13 June 2012.
Well done to the World Health Organisation for today’s slogan ‘Every child deserves a 5th birthday’.  They are inviting viewers to upload photos of themselves at 5 years old.   In many countries including the UK, a large number of children never achieve the right to experience a single birthday.  It seems ironic that...

Posted on 11 June 2012.
    Tracey O'Neill of Marie Stopes warned yesterday in an article in the Sunday Times that the financial crisis is the root cause of the increase in abortions for women in their 30s. In her words 'There is good evidence that, in a recession, women delay marriage and taking out mortgages into their late 20s. That in turn...

We were contacted last night by Ted, possibly the oldest person in the UK to be subject of an anti-social behaviour order, with the news that he had been arrested again for not conforming to the terms laid down in his original sentence.  ASBOs are by all accounts on the way out, but are usually issued against unruly youths who cannot conform to...

Posted on 23 May 2012.
The much publicised live broadcast from a Marie Stopes clinic on 23rd May was predictably one sided.  The programme opens with Karen, described as a Healthcare Assistant, qualifications unknown, who is adamant that the clinic does not allow abortion for non-statutory reasons such as financial hardship.  However from that point onwards, the...

According to the Washington Times the White House Visitors Office has started a policy requiring the registration of unborn babies before pregnant  visitors can be admitted.  Wherever possible full details have to be supplied (sex, age, etc.) and can be amended once the baby is born.   How surprising that under the presidency of Barack...

The Daily Mail reports the confiscation at a South Korean airport of 17,000 Chinese medicinal capsules which were found to contain the powdered tissue of babies produced after either abortion or miscarriage.  Last August this horrifying story was widely circulated, but clearly this ghastly trade has not been stopped. This is a terrible story and...

In the past two days no one can have missed the world coverage of the blind Chinese human rights activist, Chen Guang Cheng, and his attempt to find asylum within the American Embassy.  Today it is revealed that he is no longer in the Embassy, but it remains unclear whether he left of his own volition or because of political pressure.

The front page of Monday’s Guardian (2/4/12) screamed about a ‘witch-hunt’ against abortion providers.  The newspaper fears that doctors will be put off becoming abortionists by the current increase in official inspections. However, most will view this as a positive development.  Doctors may actually be reluctant to perform...

The Daily Telegraph has published an article, including a poll on their website.  We urge readers to vote. In January, the  state of Texas made a change to their legislation so that women seeking an abortion should be offered the chance to see a scan of their unborn baby beforehand.  Texas is well-known (along with Ohio) as having an...

Posted on 20 January 2012.
It is well known that many Asian and Far Eastern societies have a preference for boys over girls.  In modern times this has resulted in selective abortion of unwanted girls.  Because abortion on grounds of gender is not permitted in the UK, it has in the past been difficult to find hard evidence on whether it is nonetheless happening  here...
