It has been a shameful week for abortion campaigners, whose reprehensible actions have made it crystal clear to the public just how extreme, nasty, and intimidating many of them are. The thuggish behaviour of People Before Profit activists, and reports that staff at a hotel received threats - and even death threats - because they provided a venue for an event addressed by pro-life rape survivors, has been met with a storm of criticism online.

Denmark has recently said it will be ‘Down Syndrome’ free in the near future with almost all babies with the condition being aborted before birth.

The Life Institute has said that pro-abortion activists travelling the country looking to tout abortion pills are acting like drug pushers, and that their disregard for the lives of women and babies was callous, reckless and reprehensible.
