What is March for Life UK?

March for Life UK is a pro-life organisation which incorporates three main annual events as well as a continuous mission comprising of three key aims.

Raising Awareness

To raise awareness of the hurt and damage that abortion causes and promote the value of every human life from the first moment of conception.

Fostering community

To foster a sense of community within the pro-life movement so that we can come together as one united voice.

Inspiring people

To enthuse, educate and inspire people to become pro-life not just in name but in their actions and so march for life daily.

How abortion is impacting our country

How abortion is impacting our country

Since the 1967 Abortion Act was implemented, over 9.5 million lives have been tragically ended in the womb in the UK, with an annual rate of around 200,000. Each one of these lives was a unique, irreplaceable human being worthy of life and love.
2020 saw the highest ever annual abortion figures in the UK and the introduction of home abortions, also known as pills-by-post or DIY abortions. In 2020 there were 72,059 of these abortions which took place in England and Wales where the woman had no face-to-face consultation, no direct contact with a doctor, no scan, self-managed her own abortion in the isolation of her own bedroom or bathroom and was left to dispose of her own dead child.
We are seeing wave after wave of new attacks on the preborn child from abortion providers as well as some of the leading medical organisations such as the British Medical Association (BMA), The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) and The Royal college of Gynaecologists (RCOG) who are all pushing for so called ‘decriminalisation’ which in reality will mean abortion up till birth for any reason or none.
Women have paid a particularly high price for legalised abortion as figures now show that one in four pregnancies ends in abortion. In 2020 495 women every month attended hospital for treatment relating to their medical abortion. For those having pills-by-post abortions in 2020, 1 in every 17 of them ended up in hospital with complications from their home abortion. 
We believe women deserve better than this. If our answer to a woman’s crisis pregnancy is to help her destroy her own child then we don’t offer a solution at all but are simply swapping one problem for a far greater one.

Our response

EVENTS: We have three main events which all happen on an annual basis. 

The March

1) The actual March itself takes place in London and starts with an indoor pro-life festival in which pro-life organisations from around the country showcase their work along with sessions for children of all ages, talks, testimonies, pro-life games, prayer, music and much more. We then process through the streets of the capital where we proclaim our central message ‘Life From Conception – No Exception!’. We end in Parliament Square where a stage is set up for our keynote speeches, ending with a solemn time of prayer or remembrance. If you have never done anything actively pro-life before, this is an ideal first step which is likely to lead you to many more.

LifeStream

2) LifeStream is an online event packed with various sessions catering for all ages. There are talks and discussions which will appeal to those looking for something intellectually stimulating as well as testimonies which connect on an emotional level.  From tiny tots to the seasoned pro-lifer, this event will not disappoint. LifeStream will be of particular interest to those who are unable to attend an actual March for Life but are keen to understand more about the issue of abortion and feel something of the sense of community within the pro-life movement.

Abortion Act Day of Remembrance 

3) The Abortion Act Anniversary Witness occurs annually on October 27th in London. This is a solemn and poignant event which is attended by both religious and political leaders. The Abortion Act was passed in the UK on Oct 27th 1967 and we believe this day should not pass without a reminder of what the true cost of this Act has meant for pre-born children, women, men and society as a whole. We welcome our supporters to be part of this day in person or to view it online through our live-streaming and videos.

Social Media Strategy

We have produced a huge amount of original content for multiple platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube that is designed to reach an audience directly being targeted by the abortion industry and also to those who are searching for ways to get involved in the pro-life industry. Our media has a cutting edge modern look that opens up healthy debate, gives informative news about life issues and memes that are designed to challenge not only the person who is an abortion supporter but the person who is pro-life but not yet doing anything about it.

History

March for Life UK was started in 2012 in Birmingham, England, as a midway event to a local 40 Days for Life campaign. The organisers were pleasantly surprised at how many people attended and how well received the event was. The next year they held a similar event independently to 40 Days for Life and advertised it at a national level. Numbers grew year on year and in 2018 the supporters finally outgrew Birmingham and so headed to the capital city which has become their permanent location. Although in Birmingham there were heavy clashes between pro-lifers and pro-abortion protesters, since moving to London those opposing the march have dwindled to around 20 and are hardly noticeable on the day.
In recent years the organisation has increased the amount and diversity of its events as well as broadening its year long activities all in keeping with their three key aims. March for Life UK now employ three members of staff who help run the organisation and are aided by some amazing volunteers as well of course as their faithful financial donors and prayer supporters.
