Reject calls to legalise abortion up to birth. We call on Her Majesty’s Government to reject absolutely any and all calls to legalise abortion up to birth. Sign the Petition Here. At the recent G7 Summit in Biarritz, world leaders were told by the Gender Equality Advisory Council that removing all legal safeguards and allowing abortion up to birth is recommended good practice in advancing gender equality. In recent months, and using similar arguments, abortion activists in the UK have similarly been pushing for the legalisation of abortion up to birth - and for its extension to Northern Ireland, in clear disregard of the democratically expressed will of the people of that Province...

Sign the Petition Here. We call for urgent enquiry into the Governance of the BBC The BBC has become an ideological tool for promotion of an agenda actively hostile to Christianity and to the maintenance of traditional morality, which historically has underpinned and given strength to our society for over a thousand years. In promoting this agenda it displays contempt for Christian belief, abusing its position to provide ‘... impartial, high-quality and distinctive output and services, which inform, educate and entertain’. In a recent broadcast of its flagship Christian programme Songs of Praise, the Corporation broadcast a supposed homosexual marriage ceremony performed at Rutherglen United Reformed Church near Glasgow. It chose to do this knowing that the Bible prohibits any and all sex outside marriage, laid down as between one man and one woman for life, for their mutual benefit and support and for the bringing up of any children that may result from their union. It chose to broadcast this moreover in the clear and certain knowledge that such ceremonies are banned by leading Christian denominations, including the Church of England, the Church of Wales, and the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches...READ MORE

Kristie Higgs, a pastoral assistant at Farmor’s Academy in Gloucester, was recently sacked after posting concerns on her personal Facebook page about RSE lessons at a nearby Church of England Primary School attended by her own child. Worried especially by the use of two story books promoting homosexuality and transgenderism, Kristie, a committed Christian, asked friends to sign a Voice for Justice UK petition calling for the right of parents to have children educated in line with their religious beliefs. For this she was anonymously reported for homophobia to the school where she worked, with the result that she was summoned to a disciplinary hearing at which she was sacked for gross misconduct.
It is unacceptable that a devout Christian mother, with an exemplary work record spanning six years, should be penalised for expressing justifiable concerns over teaching that prematurely introduces children to sexual issues of which they would otherwise be unaware, and that runs directly contrary to her Christian faith...

Sex and Relationships Education up to now has been a disaster. Despite all efforts we still have one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in Western Europe; one of the highest teenage abortion rates in Western Europe; epidemic level STIs amongst teenagers; frightening levels of child addiction to pornography; unprecedented levels of diagnosable mental illness among children; and police reports of alarming and growing numbers of child-on-child sex abuse, some including children as young as five...READ MORE
https://www.citizengo.org/en/168052-call-biased-counter-extremism-commissioners-resign On Monday July 3, the Government proudly announced a 75 point plan to improve the lives of gay people, eliminating discrimination and advancing ‘equality’. Citing a recent survey of gay people in the UK, the BBC stated, “LGBT hate incidents had been experienced by 40% of people in the survey, with more than nine in 10 of the most serious offences going unreported.” Seemingly, however, such even-handed treatment does not extend to Christians, who routinely in the UK today are being subjected to intolerance, harassment, and abuse - despite the fact that freedom of belief is enshrined in Art 9 of the Human Rights Act 1998, and is listed equally as a protected characteristic, alongside such characteristics as age, disability, sex and race, under the Equality Act 2010...READ MORE

Petition to: To the Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice - the Rt Hon David Gauke MP
...The current proposals to remove any element of fault from divorce trivialises both the commitment to, and solemnity of, marriage. It destroys any idea of covenant, and risks making it from the outset a temporary contract that can be terminated at whim by either party, without agreement from the other side...

The attempted push by LGBT activists to make teaching about alternative lifestyles and sexualities compulsory for all children from the age of 4 is a declaration of war against Christianity. It suppresses freedom of belief as enshrined in the Bible, and denies the right to free speech. Worse, it is a form of indoctrination of young minds, who have no experience or understanding of the possible outcomes of different behaviours and who, by definition, lack the emotional and intellectual maturity to judge such issues for themselves.
https://www.citizengo.org/en-gb/164935-justice-david-skinner-charge-lgbt-thugs-assault - On Saturday, 14thJuly, Bournemouth held a Gay Pride Parade through the centre of town. According to the local paper, thousands of spectators lined the streets to welcome the dozens of floats celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender culture. The parade was led by crews from Dorset and Wiltshire Fire Service, joined by members of the police force, fire service and paramedics. David Skinner is an elderly gentleman who also attended, but in his case to bear witness to the shocking death at the turn of the century of Harry Hammond, a 69 year old, Christian street preacher, who in 2001 was physically attacked at a similar parade, after the sign he was carrying provoked outrage from the crowd...READ MORE
https://www.citizengo.org/en/162802-scrap-guidance-stopping-parental-access-childrens-medical-records Please sign our petition to the Prime Minister, the Rt Hon Theresa May, calling for Government to scrap the guidance stopping parental access to children’s medical records We thought it was maybe misinterpretation of new GDPR requirements, when parents started to receive letters from their doctors’ surgeries telling them they would no longer be allowed access to their child’s medical records, unless the child gave explicit permission. It appears, however, that we were wrong, because the Government has now issued a Briefing Paper entitled Patient records and confidentiality. And as s part of this, The British Medical Association (BMA) has produced guidance on confidentiality and the disclosure of health records in relation to children. The guidance states: ‘…children who are aged 12 or over are generally expected to have capacity to give or withhold their consent to the release of information … If the child is competent to understand what is involved in the proposed treatment, the health professional should, unless there are convincing reasons to the contrary … respect the child’s wishes if they do not want parents or guardians to know. However, every reasonable effort must be made to persuade the child to involve parents or guardians particularly for important or life-changing decisions.’ (House of Commons Briefing Paper, Number 07103, 25 May 2018)READ MORE

Reduce the time limit for abortion from 24 to 20 weeks!
In 1990 the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act lowered the legal time limit for abortion from 28 to 24 weeks, which was at the time the accepted point of viability – the time when the child was recognised as capable of independent existence outside the womb. Medical advances since that time mean that a baby born at 22 weeks has around a 10% chance of survival, 3.4% surviving without medical impairment.
Since 1967 over 9 million abortions have been performed in this country. Despite what was claimed when abortion was legalised in 1967, less than 2% of these have been for medical reasons, with a staggering 98% performed for what are euphemistically termed ‘social reasons’, meaning that, for whatever cause, the baby was simply unwanted.
VfJUK received an email yesterday directing our attention to a poll on Assisted Dying currently being run by the BMJ (British Medical Journal).
