From the end of February, the Criminal Justice bill will likely return to parliament and amendments will be tabled to decriminalize abortion up to the point of birth. As well as a direct attack on the dignity of the unborn, it is highly likely that these amendments, if passed, will have unforeseen consequences that could be very serious for both unborn babies and their mothers, especially given the increase in home abortions following the legislation of the provision of abortion pills by post.

It is possible that there will be other amendments more favourable to the rights of unborn babies. Work will be carried out by the secretariat, including the provision of a website tool to allow people to contact their Member of Parliament.

Let us, with Catholics all across the UK, join together in prayer during this time with the intention to end this immoral act. St Gianna Boretta Molla, pray for us all during this time.
