Pro-life outrage as Marie Stopes announces opening...
Posted on 11 October 2012.
The ProLife Alliance joins in the outcry of pro-life colleagues in Northern Ireland at the news that Marie Stopes UK is opening a clinic in Belfast, where early abortion will be one of the services provided.  This highly provocative initiative is neither welcome nor necessary.  The health needs of the people of Northern Ireland are more than... 
Call for ban on disability abortions after Paralym...
Posted on 20 September 2012.
         The Pro Life Alliance was one of the signatories to the following letter published in the Daily Telegraph on the 19th of September 2012.    'SIR – A special-needs child in the womb can be aborted at up to 40 weeks.  But once he or she is born we do a moral volte-face... 
Tony Nicklinson case rejected...
Posted on 16 August 2012.
Although of course everyone has enormous sympathy for Tony Nicklinson's predicament, the court's decision not to allow doctors to kill patients is right.  It will be a relief for thousands of handicapped, chronically ill, or very elderly: their lives will continue to be protected by the law. The very small number of disabled who... 
Hospitals fail Care Quality Commission checks...
Posted on 12 July 2012.
Today the CQC has published its findings following its investigation into abortion clinics across the country.  The findings show clear evidence that doctors are: pre-signing abortion forms producing multiple copies of forms with one doctor’s signature photocopied (to avoid the hassle of finding a second doctor) signing forms weeks after... 
How to REALLY help women in the developing world...
Posted on 11 July 2012.
The London Summit on Family Planning, co-hosted by the Department for International Development and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, is taking place today.  It hopes to raise funds from governments, organisations and private donors to supply contraception to women and girls in the developing world.  Yet there is another way to improve... 
Marie Stopes: legal and independent?...
Posted on 28 June 2012.
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... 
BMA Motion on Assisted Suicide...
Posted on 27 June 2012.
The Pro Life Alliance welcomes the BMA's decision, today at its AGM, to remain opposed to assisted suicide and euthanasia.  Doctors rejected calls from the pressure group ‘Healthcare Professionals for Assisted Dying’ (HPAD) to become neutral on end of life issues.  They voted against both parts of the motion proposed by Professor... 
New genetics test threatens the unborn and the dis...
Posted on 7 June 2012.
The Daily Telegraph and other papers report today on a new genetics test with the potential to identify over 3,500 genetic disorders by testing the blood of a pregnant woman (plus the father's saliva).  Like all knowledge this is something that should be welcomed, providing it does not lead to further discrimination against those with disability. Information... 
More of the same tragic figures as Abortion Statis...
Posted on 29 May 2012.
Each year when the Abortion Statistics are published the ProLife Alliance, together with all colleagues who defend the right to life of every child in the womb, continues to hope that at last we will see some signs of a turning of the abortion tide.  We look desperately for some real indication that the relentless termination of unborn life in... 
81 year old pro-life pensioner, Ted Atkinson, arre...
Posted on 25 May 2012.
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... 
Radio 5 spends 2 hours in an abortion clinic but t...
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... 
Heroic witness against abortion from blind Chinese...
Posted on 3 May 2012.
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. What... 
The power of boycott in Pro-Life Campaigning: Pep...
Posted on 30 April 2012.
Good news has reached us from the US that Pepsi will no longer use a testing process provided by Senomyx which involved the use of aborted fetal tissue.  This victory follows a peaceful yet powerful boycott campaign initiated by American prolifers. The ProLife Alliance, when alerted to the boycott, raised similar concerns in correspondence with... 
BBC to interview women in abortion clinic...
Posted on 23 April 2012.
  Today several papers reported that BBC Five Live is to interview women and staff in an unnamed abortion clinic next month as part of a two hour programme.  The ultimate taboo in relationship to abortion is not the counselling process with the woman, but the tragic reality of what happens to the unborn child.  This latest initiative... 
Abortion Bill in Ireland soundly defeated – cong...
Posted on 20 April 2012.
The Irish parliament, Dáil Éireann, voted by 111 to 20 to defeat a pro-abortion bill which would have legalized abortion in Ireland and also sent pro-life protesters to jail. This vote reflects the poll carried out on the Irish public in advance of the debate.  It is notable that supporters of the bill cited misleading research in... 
Medical students turning away from abortion...
Posted on 10 April 2012.
On 7th April, the Guardian reported that a US organisation called Medical Students for Choice is to fund medical students to shadow doctors at BPAS in ‘externships’.  On closer inspection it seems that Medical Students for Choice can’t seem to sell their ghastly scholarships in their own country, so are hardly likely to be any... 
Blitz on abortion clinics absolutely justified ...
Posted on 5 April 2012.
The decision by the Health Secretary, Andrew Lansley, to investigate abortion clinics urgently following the devastating Daily Telegraph revelations about potential criminal practice, was more than justified and it is total humbug for abortion supporters to criticise his prompt intervention. Care Quality Commission inspectors visited nearly 300 abortion... 
Abortion doctors, thankfully in short supply...
Posted on 3 April 2012.
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... 
Excellent outcome to Assisted Dying debate in Hous...
Posted on 28 March 2012.
Yesterday, the House of Commons debated a motion from Richard Ottaway MP to welcome the Director of Public Policy for Prosecutors in Respect of Cases of Encouraging or Assisting Suicide, published in February 2010.  The ProLife Alliance is delighted that all those present at the debate were unanimous in their support both of the main motion and... 
Latest abortion scandal...
Posted on 23 March 2012.
The Health Secretary Andrew Lansley’s promised investigation into practices at abortion clinics has been publicised in today’s press.  It is more than time for an extensive inquiry into the practice of abortion in the United Kingdom, not just focusing on private clinics subcontracted by the NHS, but equally importantly the NHS itself,... 
Can we trust Department of Health statistics on ab...
Posted on 22 March 2012.
The Daily Telegraph has published a very brief article on the subject of a study published on 7th March 2012 in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Apart from the horror of reading that 16 babies were born alive and left to die in 2006 there are further shocking revelations in this article.  Table 4 shows huge underreporting of abortions... 
Alarming decision from the High Court...
Posted on 12 March 2012.
Tony Nicklinson wants doctors to be allowed to kill disabled people. The High Court's decision that the case can proceed is very frightening indeed for them.  However sympathetic one might be to Mr. Nicklinson, his is a very rare condition.  Hard cases do make bad law.  The media, especially the BBC, repeatedly show...

Posted on 8 March 2012.
Superb exposition and excellent attendance at meeting with Professors Priscilla Coleman and Patricia Casey. The colloquium between these two experts, Dr Priscilla Coleman who is Professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, and Dr Patricia Casey who is Professor of Psychiatry at University College Dublin,...

Posted on 23 February 2012.
There is understandable outrage across the country today, following an undercover media exercise, which confirms that gendercide abortions are taking place in our country.  Different scenarios were placed before abortion providers around the country, and compelling video footage shows how easily agreement was obtained to abort the baby of the undesired... 
Right to Know legislation upheld in Texas...
Posted on 13 February 2012.
Following on from the news which we reported last week regarding the right of women seeking an abortion to see an ultrasound scan if they wish, the pro-choice Center for Reproductive Justice appealed on the grounds that doctors are being denied their right to freedom of speech and that women’s ‘fundamental reproductive rights’ will... 
Texan women gain the right to see a scan before an...
Posted on 10 February 2012.
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 9 February 2012.
The Daily Mail reports that since 2009 NHS Solent has been giving young teenagers from 13 years of age Nexplanon contraceptive implants without their parents’ knowledge as part of their teenage pregnancy strategy.     According to the product information on Nexplanon, ‘safety and efficacy have been established in women between...

Posted on 5 January 2012.
The objectivity of the so-called “independent commission on assisted dying” has always been in doubt. On November  30th  2011 it was revealed that nine of the twelve Falconer commissioners were well-known names in the movement to legalise assisted suicide . The commission is the brainchild of the campaign group 'Dignity in...

Posted on 9 December 2011.
The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AOMRC) has today published research which they commissioned on the mental health of women following induced abortion. A spokesperson for the ProLife Alliance comments: Once again the politics of abortion blinds those who should be rigorously objective in assessing epidemiological evidence.  This is a...

The Journal of Medical Ethics has published a survey of 733 medical students carried out by Dr Sophie Strickland. The survey shows that increasing numbers of medical students are opposed to carrying out abortions. Details can be found on this link. In a heavily biased article in the Guardian (18/7/11) Dr Strickland says her findings are worrying in...
