Ask MPs to reduce the legal abortion limit from 24 to 22 weeks

An amendment to the Criminal Justice Bill seeks to lower the legal abortion limit from 24 weeks to 22 weeks. Another amendment would make it illegal to have an abortion after the legal limit if a baby is thought to have Down's syndrome. And a third, extreme, amendment seeks to decriminalise abortion after 24 weeks.

It's important that MPs hear from constituents like you. We've set up an email tool to assist you in writing to your MP about these amendments. You can edit the email template and we'd strongly encourage you to personalise it as much as possible before hitting send.

Please remember to:

  • Use your own words
  • Avoid hyperbolic or overly emotive language
  • Speak the truth in love. (cf. Eph 4:15).
