Nearing 50 years of legal abortion, U.K. pro-lifers take a stand


Birmingham, England, May 14, 2016 / 03:50 pm (CNA).- Thousands of men, women, and children took to the streets of Birmingham on Saturday to take a stand for the unborn and be witnesses to their community.

“At the very heart of this is the life of the unborn, and the protection of that life,” Archbishop Bernard Longley of Birmingham told CNA ahead of this year’s March for Life U.K.

“Alongside that is the Church’s concern for the mother, for those who are advising, those who are family, and the concern to support and to reflect God’s mercy in those circumstances.”


This is needed now more than ever:

**End the time limit for abortions, says midwives chief: Horror at plan to scrap 24-week cut-off and legalise all terminations up until birth **


Ridiculous. I am glad that the midwifery professionals are annoyed by their council. Even the statistics show that less than 8% of abortions happen after 12 weeks, so this makes no sense.


Good for them! :thumbsup:


Huge turn out, it’s growing each year.

Here is a little video footage.


Isn’t this a conflict of interest?
