Precious Life Congratulate Pro-Life MP Caulfield

Maria Caulfield, a pro-life Conservative MP for Lewes and a former nurse, has been appointed as the Conservative Party’s vice chair for women in Theresa May’s New Year’s reshuffle.

Caulfield firmly stated that her and many of her colleagues “will not be silent” as they “seek to be a voice for the voiceless.” She vows to fight for “more modern and humane abortion law that not only upholds the dignity and rights of women but the dignity and rights of the unborn child.”

Caulfield has, however, come under attack for her pro-life stance, particularly since rising to prominence in her new position. For example, Labour MP Diana Johnson accused Ms Caulfield of "arguing for women to still be covered by Victorian laws". When a piece of legislation is illustrated it is the contents of the legislation that determines whether it is suitable for modern day society. Laws that enshrine the protection of every human being’s right to life are laws that are humane, progressive and ultimately timeless.

In a statement, BPAS (the British Pregnancy Advisory Service) said it was "shocked" that the Conservative Party had appointed Caulfield. BPAS are pushing for gender selective abortions up to birth. Therefore, they don’t care about women as their agenda is financial; their sole concern is the enormous monetary gain they receive from the highly lucrative abortion industry. Furthermore, BPAS disregard human life and the rights of women, pushing for the killing of millions of unborn women.  

Bernadette Smyth, Director of Precious Life, says “It is incredibly uplifting and encouraging that the newly elected vice chair for women is truly and genuinely for the protection and dignity of all women. Caulfield wants to help and support women in crisis pregnancies and their babies so that we live in a more humane and compassionate society that protects all citizens from conception to natural death. Precious Life congratulate Caulfield on her new position – an upright pro-woman, pro-life MP.”
