It's about time pro-life people in the UK shared their values with MPs and MSPs (and here's how you can do it...)


Perhaps now is the time to hit home the pro-life message to our politicians, especially on the back of the appalling Planned Parenthood videos.  Just look across the big pond to the United States and how their pro-life movement has changed hearts and minds over the last decade.  A reported 20% swing in attitudes towards the pro-life cause suggests there may be big change coming.  Why is this happening?  Because people are vocal in the US and they are prepared to engage with their politicians.
 

Now is our time.  We, in the UK, have to take this opportunity.  Are we prepared to put our pro-life values first and let them drive who we vote for in elections?  That's what they are doing in the US, so why not do it here? 
 

Here is what I propose:
 
Write to your MP (and also your MSP if you are in Scotland as there is talk of abortion possibly being devolved to Holyrood) to express your disagreement with abortion and let them know that their stance on abortion will dictate whether you vote for them in an election.  Perhaps you could express the view that 'all human life has value and that the rights of the child in the womb are as important as the rights of those outside the womb'.  Indeed, you may want to say that you believe in equality of life for all people, no matter their race, gender, colour, size, age etc.
 
Put forward the many support options available to mothers, fathers etc who perhaps see a baby as a threat or who perhaps don't feel able to support a child.  Consider mentioning the likes of Rachel's Vineyard which is a fantastic support group for all people affected by abortion.  Click here for more details on some of the support groups
 
You may also want to state that medical evidence does support the view that life begins at conception or fertilisation as it is often referred to.
 
Here is a suggested brief letter/email to your MP/MSP (please note this is just a general suggestion and does not pretend to cover all conceivable content on the matter of abortion):
 
Dear [INSERT MP/MSP NAME]
 
I write to you today to express my concern at the continued support of abortion in our country.
 
I would be grateful if you, as my local MP/MSP, would acknowledge my views and ensure that my views are represented in parliament.
 
I firmly believe that all human life has value and that the rights of the unborn child in the womb are as important as the rights of those outside the womb.  I believe in equality of life (the most fundamental and basic right) for all people, no matter their size, age, race, colour or gender.
 
A significant degree of medical opinion and evidence confirms that life begins at fertilisation, and even many advocates for abortion admit that this is the case. 
 
In addition, it is a sad fact that, in the UK today, too many women faced with 'crisis' pregnancies are not aware of the support available to them.  With organisations such as Rachel's Vineyard - which provides support to all people affected by abortion - a woman need not feel like abortion is the only option.  Yet in the UK it appears that very little is done to promote the support available to a woman should she decide to keep her child.  There is also the possibility of adoption which must also be considered.
 
I appreciate this letter is very short but I want to make it clear that the lives of unborn children are very important to me and I do not believe they are afforded anywhere near the type of protection they should be in our country.

Please, consider this argument by Steve Wagner in relation to the unborn....'if it's growing, isn't it alive?  If it has human parents, isn't it human?  And human beings like you and me are valuable aren't we?' 
  
I must sincerely thank you for taking the time to read this letter and I trust that you will take my views into account in your role as my parliamentary representative.  I really do hope that you will give due consideration to ensuring equality of life for all human beings.
 
Yours sincerely
 
[YOUR NAME]
 
 
The letter or email doesn't have to contain much more information than what is proposed above.  This is an opportunity to let your parliamentary representatives know what you think about abortion because, sadly, they probably don't already know.  One of our biggest failings as a pro-life people in the UK is our lack of engagement with our politicians.  They are representing our interests in parliament each day.  How then can we expect them to represent our interests when they don't even know what our interests and views are??
 
If even just a handful of people who read this blog post write to their MP/MSP it will be a start.  But please spread the word.  Encourage your family and your friends to put their pro-life values at the top of their agenda when it comes to politics.  Together we can end abortion. 
 
PLEASE, PLEASE click the following links to access your local MP and MSPs details and write to them:
 
 
 
 
This is our chance...
