Alive and Kicking Campaign Launched

Published: 12th March 2008

The Alive and Kicking Alliance launched its campaign on abortion on Monday 10 March 2008 at www.aliveandkickingcampaign.org .

Alive and Kicking brings together eleven organisations including CMF, LCF, CARE, LIFE, EA and the Prolife Alliance.

With The Human Fertilization and Embryology Bill about to be debated in the House of Commons, the Alliance aims are:

  1. A substantial lowering of the upper limit of 24 weeks for abortion
  2. An end to discriminatory abortion up until birth for disabled babies
  3. Fully informed consent for women contemplating abortion

The main features of the campaign are

  1. An online data base of MPs past voting record and current voting intentions on abortion - www.aliveandkickingcampaign.org/mp/searchmp.php
  2. A petition calling for reform of the abortion law aimed at gaining 100,000 signatures - www.aliveandkickingcampaign.org/petition/
  3. An online information pack for people to use in lobbying MPs - www.aliveandkickingcampaign.org/public/pdf/aaklobbypack.pdf

The campaign was mentioned in the Daily Mail on 10 March in an article covering several other issues raised by the Bill:
