    Right to Life: Fetal Pain

    - by rootadmn

    - Ask your MP to sign a parliamentary motion calling on the Government to introduce new guidance on fetal pain. A new parliamentary motion (EDM 1340) is calling on the Government to introduce new guidance on fetal pain. The evidence that babies can feel pain in the womb, and during many abortions, highlights the humanity of the unborn child and provides another important reason to introduce legislation to protect the unborn child from abortion.

    Right To Life UK have set up an easy-to-use tool which makes it simple to contact your MP, and ask them to sign this motion calling on the Government to introduce new guidance on fetal pain. It only takes 30 seconds using this easy-to-use tool. This tool can be accessed by visiting the link below:

    www.righttolife.org.uk/FetalPainMotion

    Please help stop dangerous ‘DIY’ home abortions becoming permanent.

    The UK Government has launched a consultation on whether to make permanent the current temporary arrangement allowing ‘DIY’ home abortions.

    Make your submission to the UK Government’s consultation on ‘DIY’ home abortion using this easy-to-use tool: https://righttolife.org.uk/ukconsultation

    Ask your MP to support an amendment to help stop forced abortion in Xinjiang, China

    There is extensive evidence that many women in the Uyghur Muslim community in Xinjiang, China are being subjected to forced abortions. Lord Alton is currently championing an amendment to the Trade Bill which would give British courts a role in determining whether a country is committing genocide. If you would like to email your MP asking them to support the amendment, you can do this easily using a tool which has been set up on the Genocide Response campaign website which can be accessed by visiting the link: https://genocideresponse.org/
