Irish Abortion Bill Becomes Law...
Posted on 2 August 2013.
On Tuesday 30th July 2013 the Irish President signed the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act into law.  While women have had the right to an abortion if their life is at risk since a court case in 1992, this Act sets out and confirms that right in law.  Importantly, it allows a woman to have an abortion if three doctors certify in good... 
Shocking US abortion clinic court case...
Posted on 22 March 2013.
We are often told by abortion activists that criminalising abortion would inevitably lead to unsafe abortion.  Abortion is legal in the US, as it is in the UK, yet a court case is in progress in the US state of Philadelphia against a particularly shoddy abortion clinic, which negates that particular argument.  It should be noted that for years... 
The Morning-After Pill: Failing Women...
Posted on 30 July 2012.
Advocates of the morning after pill believe the morning after pill empowers women.  It frees them from the fear of failed contraception and unplanned pregnancy.  Yet in an article in the Sunday Times Magazine on 22nd July, Eleanor Mills interviewed teenage girls about the morning after pill.  The article is behind a paywall.  The... 
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... 
Feng Jia Mei’s husband disappears...
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... 
The Guardian, defender of freedom of speech – or...
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... 
Forced abortion in the headlines – how embarrass...
Posted on 15 June 2012.
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... 
After a long silence, an abortion doctor speaks at...
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... 
Puzzling statement from Marie Stopes...
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... 
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...

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... 
Positive answer to maternal health care in India...
Posted on 10 August 2011.
Marie Stopes International, International Planned Parenthood and the UNFPA frequently foist  ‘reproductive health’ and abortion on the poor of the Third World, often when women are at their lowest ebb, sitting in a refugee camp trying to cope with the deaths of their children.  These family planning organisations claim that their... 
BPAS contradictory views on medical abortion...
Posted on 29 January 2011.
Yesterday the British Pregnancy Advisory Service began its challenge to the current legal situation that the second pill of the medical abortion process must be given in a clinic. In the meantime, in yesterday’s Woman’s Hour Anne Furedi, Chief Executive of BPAS stated that the aim is to provide a better service to women. However this is... 
Choice? What Choice?...
Posted on 27 January 2011.
The ProLife Alliance occasionally takes part in debates on pro-life issues. This is an important means of bringing subjects such as abortion to the attention of the next generation and a wider audience. Last year we were invited by Bristol University’s debating society to take part in a debate on abortion. Our opponent on this occasion was a speaker... 
Why the fuss about Dr Kermit Gosnell? Abortion is...
Posted on 21 January 2011.
In the past few days the worldwide media has reacted with shock regarding the ‘baby killer’ doctor Dr Kermit Gosnell. Dr Gosnell is a late term abortionist in the US whose clinic has been slammed for carrying out illegal late term abortions and putting women’s health at risk. He is accused of forcibly delivering and executing babies with scissors.... 
PROLIFE ALLIANCE URGES PROTEST AS BOOTS PUTS PROFI...
Posted on 16 August 2010.
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)...
