An Unexpected Pregnancy

How would you react to an unexpected pregnancy? What about your daughter or granddaughter? What if you were the father of the baby or if it was your son who announced his partner was pregnant? Our new series of blogs will be exploring different people’s reactions to a pregnancy they weren’t expecting. We will be sharing stories from some women who recall how a lack of positive support made them feel pressured into aborting, with devastating consequences. Others explain how a few kind words or offer of help, sometimes at the very last minute, were enough to empower them to keep their baby.

Hearing these testimonies is vital in helping to change the culture in our country. Abortion is certainly not a quick fix solution and can have huge repercussions for those involved no matter what their reasons for aborting. An unexpected pregnancy is not the end of a woman’s life, rather it’s the start of a new one. If you have experienced an unexpected pregnancy, whether it’s your own, or someone close to you who is willing for their story to be made public – (names or personal details can be kept private) please get in touch. If it’s easier for you to share the story verbally we can arrange for it to be written down. Contact Isabel at


I was 16 coming on 17 in 1987 when I found myself pregnant. I was too scared to tell my mom as Dad had died around 6 months before and I felt she had enough on her plate. I shared instead with my boyfriend and he left the decision to me. I also confided with a […]

Sex Trafficked Victim to Pro-Life Advocate

Ten years ago, I walked into an abortion clinic visibly bruised and distressed, with my ‘partner’ by my side, watching my every move. Just like the other times this had happened, none of the workers at the clinic seemed to notice any of the obvious red flags or ask me if this was what I really wanted. […]

To my Black brothers and sisters – Why abortion is OUR issue

Black people make up 3% of the population but account for 7-10% of the abortions in the UK per year. Black people are disproportionately getting more abortions than other ethnicities. You may think ‘So what?’ ‘Why does that matter?’ Well, many people don’t know the abortion industry was founded on the ideals of racism and […]


Today we heard the news that we’ve been waiting for – Roe v Wade has been overturned! For those of us who recognise that the legalisation of abortion was a grave disservice to women, as well of course as being the death knell for vast numbers of preborn children, this is something to be greatly […]

URGENT ACTION: to protect prayer vigils outside abortion centres.

Those of you who receive emails from our friends at SPUC may well have already heard about the recent threat to pro-life vigils. If not then please take a few minutes to read this as it requires a response from each of us. This is a situation where spending a small amount of time on […]

Home Abortions – A DOCTOR SPEAKS OUT

I am deeply disturbed that pills-by-post/home abortions, this has prompted me to speak out and raise some of the concerns I have as a medical professional.


My name is Elizabeth, I am 66 years of age and was born with a cleft lip and palate. Although they didn’t say so, I would imagine my parents were shocked when I was first born, but they quickly accepted the situation, and like my siblings, I was always loved for who I was and […]

One Mum’s Challenge to ‘Rethink Adoption’

I had two children and they kept me and my husband very busy. Our eldest, Liam, had Aspergers and my daughter, Niamh, was disabled. Niamh had a very rare genetic disorder and was one of the first five people to ever be diagnosed with this specific gene mutation POU3F3. This disorder meant she couldn’t speak, […]

Being ‘Pro-Life’ is not just a name.

I like to think of the term ‘Pro-Life’ as a verb. It’s something that we do, something that we invest our time into, something that we choose. When I had just started secondary school, I saw the term ‘Pro-Life’ as a noun. A concept that stands, frozen in time, whilst the hum of society passes it by. Part of that society was me. 

March for Life UK: Christmas Round Up

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting us and our mission throughout 2021. We absolutely couldn’t have done it without you.

Here’s a reminder […]

Anita’s Decision – My Baby or My Happiness?

I could be stuck in the box room of my stepdad’s house struggling with depression or I could be holding my newborn baby girl listening to her gentle gurgling noises. The decision which was going to have a huge effect on the rest of my life was being made in a split moment. My name […]

Abortion, Gangs and my Search for Authentic Masculinity

My name is Matthew. I was in my teens when I supported my girlfriend in aborting our child. I realise now that this event didn’t occur in isolation but was a consequence of my long struggle to discern how to live out true masculinity. I don’t want to blame anyone else for my part in […]

In Memory Of My Little Sister Susanna . . .

I was seven years old when my mother aborted my little sister, Susanna. I already had two younger brothers but they’d come along when I was still too young to really appreciate them, at seven I was just the right age to get happily self-important about helping with a new baby. I must have overheard […]

The Sinister TRUTH of Abortion

Every abortion is wrong, whether it happens at 6 days, 6 weeks or 6 months. Every abortion ends the life of a child and can have a huge impact psychologically on the parents, especially the mother. Home abortions however (also known as pills-by-post abortions or DIY abortions) are particularly alarming because women and, debatably, some […]

Abortion Act Remembrance Display Attracts Wide Attention In Parliament Square

A big thank you to those of you who joined us on Wednesday for our public witness display in Parliament Square to remember the babies who have been aborted since the Abortion Act was passed exactly 54 years ago on Oct 27th 1967.

March for Life UK – A Resurgence of Life

It seems a long while since we’ve seen a large crowd of pro-lifers on the streets of London but on Saturday 4thSeptember, pro-lifers from around the UK were certainly making up for lost time. Many of those present mentioned that it felt like something of a rebirth for public witness in the pro-life movement, or […]


My name is Marianne and I grew up in the sixties, a time when it was still more the parent’s than the school’s responsibility to educate their child about sexual relationships. As a rather rebellious child, I remember my mother saying to me again and again through my teenage years; “sex is not a game […]

We’ve all heard the abortion supporter’s favourite mantra ‘My body, my choice’. Even those like Ann Furedi, former CEO of BPAS, who admit that abortion ‘Is intentional and does end a human life’ still worship at the altar of choice. I heard an abortion supporter say something about choice recently which I think is worth taking time to […]


We are pleased to announce our theme to cover all March for Life UK events this year. Have a read and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.. Words like ‘number one issue’ can have negative connotations when we are speaking about abortion. It reminds us of the phrase ‘single issue voter’ which […]

Work a Day for Life

On 27th April we remember the implementation of the Abortion Act in the UK which happened in 1968. The Act was passed the year before on 27th Oct 1967 but it wasn’t until the following April that it actually came into effect. Since then over 9 million children have been legally aborted in the UK. We don’t […]


I write this reluctantly. I know so many incredible, loving, compassionate, selfless pro-lifers who work very hard and receive little thanks. Men and women who give up much of their time because they care passionately about life, all life, unborn children, their mothers and fathers too as well as those who work in the abortion […]

Home Abortions – The Domestic Abuse Cover up

Over the past few weeks we at March for Life UK have been talking to some medical professionals about their concerns surrounding the safety of DIY abortions also known as pills-by-post. We thought it would now be good to listen to what the supporters of DIY abortions say. Yes, we believe it’s important to listen […]

My DIY Abortion – Natalia’s Story

One of the most horrifying changes to take place in recent years regarding UK law surrounding abortion is the introduction of DIY/home abortions. At present they are only permitted under a temporary 2 year measure brought in during March 2020 because of the covid lockdown. The bigger concern is now that this could become permanent. […]

Back to the Back Street – The Reality of DIY Abortions

‘I woke up and I didn’t feel anything so I didn’t think it had worked. I just remember lifting up my blanket and it was like a scene out of a horror movie.’ You could be forgiven for thinking I’m describing a backstreet abortion happening in the 1940’s but sadly that’s not the case. This […]

Why DIY Abortions aren’t ‘Pro-Choice’

Following on from our conversations with Dr Eileen Reilly (obstetrician/gynaecologist) and midwife Julia Gibbons, March for Life UK spoke to Dr Dermot Kearney to hear what he had to say about DIY/home abortions. Dr Dermot is a consultant cardiologist in Newcastle, he’s also president of the Catholic Medical Association.  At the beginning of our discussion […]

A Midwife Speaks up on DIY/Home Abortions

To encourage our supporters to respond to the government consultation on DIY/home abortions we continue with another interview with a medical professional to see what their concerns are surrounding the possibility of these ‘pills-by-post’ abortions becoming permanent. Any abortion is a traumatic experience but the thought of a woman or teenager consenting to this after having only […]

SIX Ways to FIGHT ABORTION During Lockdown

How can I be pro-life in lockdown? What a great question! It shows that the person asking the question realises that to truly be pro-life we have to more than just think it. We are all feeling limited right now but rather than list what we can’t do, let’s be more creative and think what […]

9,560,403 Too Many! A NATION IN CRISIS

This year, we’ve received a constant, daily barrage of figures on the news, how many people have caught coronavirus, how many are in hospital, or have died. Years ago there would have been a large amount of frightening, infectious diseases around and without antibiotics and vaccines many would have been fatal. People died far younger and infant […]


Dear Maya Oppenheim,   How many stories must we read about ‘anti-abortion protesters’ intimidating and harassing vulnerable women outside abortion centres? In just over a week The Independent has printed two of your articles, both strikingly similar, in fact so similar you have the same photo heading each story . . . of a group […]

‘He made it absolutely clear that a baby did not fit into his current plans and that I had to get rid of it.’ Danielle’s Story

I was in my early thirties, working in the UK on a two year visa and completing my exams on a marketing course. I had a good job and things were going well. Then I got pregnant. My name is Danielle and I lived with my partner who had a student visa. He was working […]

‘You just make an appointment, go to the clinic, and quietly and calmly, with no fuss, get rid of your child.’ Simon’s Story

My name is Simon and I was 27 years old when I broke up with the girl I’d been engaged to. We’d been together for seven years and I thought we’d have a family together. As far back as I can remember in my childhood I’d wanted a little brother and then as I got […]

My name is Elizabeth and this story still makes me feel emotional as I tell it.

My name is Elizabeth and this story still makes me feel emotional as I tell it… For years, I’d lived very close to the Marie Stopes abortion clinic and often seen people standing outside the entrance, sometimes praying, sometimes offering leaflets. To my neighbours and I, they seemed polite and friendly, never bothering anyone. I’d […]

I realised that the missing something, was somebody.

I was too young, I had no money, I didn’t have a house, I didn’t have a job, I wasn’t in a relationship with the man who had got me pregnant, I couldn’t tell my parents, I was still in school … I was 15. This was my reasoning when I discovered that I was […]

Women are pressured to ABORT – I know because it happened to me

My name is Fatima. This is my story: I grew up in a strict Muslim family. Although I lived in the UK and went to a mainstream school I didn’t really have a childhood as such. I wasn’t allowed to go out and meet friends like other girls my age were, instead, I was expected […]

LOCKDOWN DIDN’T STOP US! – 15,000 tune in LIVE to’ LifeStream 20′

THE MAN WHO ESTABLISHED ABORTION IN THE UK – (And what you didn’t know about the history of BPAS)

You may have heard of the UK’s oldest abortion centre which, after 50 years of business, recently closed down in Birmingham. You may have heard how pro-life activists had been praying outside its gates for decades but have you heard the story behind its founding or indeed the story behind the largest abortion provider in […]


Pro-lifers in Birmingham rejoiced today as over 30 years of persistent prayer were answered. The Calthorpe Clinic abortion centre in Edgbaston closed its doors for the last time as their business came to a halt after performing terminations for 50 years. Originally run as an old people’s home, in 1969 the centre became the first […]

The baby who survived two trips to one of the UK’s busiest abortion centres

Some people would say that Betsy-Marie came into this world on 13th July 2019 but her parents, Danny and Carla, know this isn’t so. Beatrice-Marie Teresa Faith came into this world at the moment of her conception. This little girl doesn’t realise how eventful and blessed her life has already been, for she has survived […]

‘Even without faith I would still be prolife’

Hannah, a graduate from Glasgow, is involved in ‘Project Truth’ that takes place each year.  She tells us what it’s all about and why she is so passionate about being prolife.

Every Man’s Call to Fatherhood

It’s father’s day and a great time to be with your dad, but also an opportunity to celebrate fatherhood. Male and female, God created them. The complementarity of a mother and father is the basic building block of the family and society. Contrary to post-modern thought, fathers cannot be replaced, yes there are heroic single […]

A Response to The Guardian’s propaganda about “peaceful vigils” outside abortion clinics

My response to The Guardian’s piece of abortion propaganda which you can read here if you like that kind of thing: Dear Simon Murphy, I’m sure you’ll be interested to know we’ve had 7 women/couples that we know of change their minds about abortion in Birmingham this 40 Days for Life – do you think […]

The 3 week Old Baby – And The Man Who Saved Her Life

This photo is of a 3 week old baby girl, saved at the very gates of an abortion centre where she was once scheduled to have her little life snuffed out. Fortunately the man in the photo met her parents as part of a ’40 Days for Life’ campaign and helped to get them the […]

We have Marched for Life, what next?

March for Life has got bigger and better with each passing year.  This year, after outgrowing our hometown of Birmingham (contrary to what the pro-aborts like to say, it simply hasn’t got a public square big enough to accommodate us), we made the bold move to London. It was with a certain amount of trepidation […]

March for Life UK 2018 – Record turn out in the beautiful London sunshine.

London delivered glorious sunshine and the biggest ever turn-out for this year’s March for Life UK – an estimated 4000 people joyfully witnessing to their belief that every life deserves love; from womb to tomb and from conception without exception. Christian faith is at the heart of today’s pro-life movement, just as it was in […]

Every Life Deserves Love

So, how many women have, afterwards, got in touch with a pro-abortion provider and thanked them for the abortion, perhaps expressing their joy and gratitude that their physical or mental health had been saved from greater risk of injury (the legal reason given for over 97% of abortions in this England and Wales)?  And how […]

Don’t Don’t Believe The Hype!

Jesus said, ‘I came into the world for this, to bear witness to the truth, and all who are on the side of truth listen to my voice.’

‘Truth?’ said Pilate. ‘What is truth?’

Having had two abortions, why I hate the idea of buffer zones!

Never in a million years did I think I would be stood outside an abortion clinic for the third time. The previous two visits led to two abortions, one in my teens and one when I was in my twenties.  Both times I was given ‘counselling’ that lasted less than 3 minutes. I did not […]

BBC programme makers silence pro-lifers voice.

The BBC’s documentary ‘Abortion on Trial’, aired on BBC 2 on Monday evening was at best irritating and at worst a shameless propaganda tool used to further the cause for decriminalisation.  The presenter of the show, Anne Robinson made no effort to hide her own strong belief in legalised abortion right at the beginning of […]

An attack on an unborn human is an attack on us all!

If a mother is considering abortion should she really trust herself to an organisation run by a woman who thinks it is no different to birth control? This is what Ann Furedi, CEO of BPAS (the British Pregnancy Advisory Service), which carries out 60,000 abortions each year in the UK, has shown herself to believe […]

I can’t believe that I still have to pray outside abortion clinics.

With 40 Days for Life just around the corner, it was interesting to come across a post by an ex-priest called ‘I Can’t Believe I Once Prayed Outside An Abortion Clinic’.  Whilst the author claims to be morally undecided on the position of abortion, the claims made about life beginning at conception being based on […]

Abortion is it your responsibility?

The recent spate of women’s/pro-abortion marches have highlighted how abortion supporters have become bolder in pushing for their ‘rights’. Rights over ‘their bodies’, rights to choose when, where and how they have an abortion, rights to prevent people from discussing or debating the issue in their presence etc Rights are being pushed even where none […]

Pro or contra abortion – reflections ahead of March for Life

People say there are two sides to every coin. Every argument has pros and cons, and to come to the right conclusion, all viewpoints need to be taken into consideration. Sometimes, an agreement cannot be achieved, and in a tolerant society, we mustn’t force our views on anyone else. Right? As regular users of social […]

Censoring the TRUTH

Yesterday the Centre for Medical Progress released a preview of another one of those Planned Parenthood videos.  The content was full on shocking, but should not surprise us and even more shocking is the fact that YouTube have censored and removed this video.  I therefore encourage you to read this article and share it on all your […]

March for Life Uk – Liefest 17

I think March for Life UK 2017 will be one of those days that I’ll never forget – I felt so proud to be pro-life! If someone had told me beforehand that it was going to pour with rain and that hundreds of protesters were going to try and disrupt the event I would have […]
