One of Us campaign – how are we doing?...
Posted on 15 April 2013.
The importance of protecting the human embryo is clear.  We must reverse the scientific trend which treats early human life as disposable experimental tissue with no real value.  Well done to those who have signed the One of Us petition so far.  The UK now has 4,624 signatures on the One of Us petition. Since last week, we gained...

Forced abortion in China – your help needed...
Posted on 10 June 2011.
China, as the whole world knows, has an abysmal record on human rights. Many of their violations gain international condemnation. However, one does not. I am talking of course about China’s draconian One Child Policy. Even Amnesty International has been complicit as they proudly vaunt abortion as a woman’s right. Where are the rights of the...

It is ten years since a statistic for one late abortion (post 24 weeks) for cleft palate, published in the 2001 Abortion Statistics, triggered what has become a very lengthy battle over freedom of information in relation to the statistical reporting of termination of pregnancy. On Monday 18 April the legal battle continues in the High Court, as the...

The ProLife Alliance is very disturbed by the recent announcement by Boots Chemists that they plan to sell Levonelle, the morning after pill, via their website.  This is a profit-motivated strategy with little regard for women’s health or any ethical considerations.  Their standards’ director, Paul Bennett is quoted in the Daily Mail (14/8/2010)...

Posted on 6 June 2010.
The horrifying report in today’s Sunday Times that some 80 IVF pregnancies a year are terminated, is particularly shocking given the accepted presumption that an IVF pregnancy is a wanted one.  There is no indication of what formal reasons were given for the abortions in question, but the report suggests that splitting with a partner and pressure...

What does a hung Parliament mean for pro-life issues?   Britain hasn’t experienced a hung Parliament for many decades. So the question on many pro-life supporters lips is: what does a hung Parliament mean for pro-life issues?

The unexpected failure of the Liberal Democrat MP Evan Harris, to retain his seat in the General Election has been greeted with much enthusiasm by pro-life voters.  Dr Harris was undoubtedly a major force in Parliament, an outspoken supporter of abortion rights, and an energetic proponent of utilitarian scientific novelties.
