We are a movement of individuals & organisations seeking:


To re-frame the abortion debate in Northern Ireland & beyond


To advocate for
better care in pregnancy crisis


To create a culture that values every woman & her unborn child

We stand...

We defend the law in Northern Ireland which protects the life, health and dignity of both.

The unborn child is either a human being with all the rights that entails or not — there is no in-between category.
