Time for change

Printer-friendly version

Saturday 27th October 2007 was the 40th anniversary of the 1967 Abortion Act which legalised the killing of the unborn.

Time for change brings together churches, professional bodies and pro-life organisations to mark this anniversary.


About one thousand Christians joined with us as we remembered the 6.7 million unborn children who have been killed and the many thousands of others, especially women, who have been adversely affected by this law.

Events in London planned for Saturday 27th October:


2:00pm - Rally in Parliament Square
3:00pm - March down Victoria Street
4:00pm - Service at Westminster Cathedral
5:15pm - Service at Westminster Chapel

The Human Tissue and Embryos Bill, expected to be introduced into Parliament after the Queen's Speech on 6th November, will open up the entire 1967 Abortion Act for amendment. Pro-choice MPs have pledged to liberalise the law and intend to mark the anniversary of the 1967 Abortion Act with a push to bring in 'abortion on request' in the first three months of pregnancy.

The first stage of this battle is a government consultation into scientific developments since the Abortion Act. This is being carried out by the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee, The closing date for written submissions was Monday, 3rd September 2007 and oral evidence sessions will commence in October.
