1) Education as Our Key Goal

Our primary goal is education. Before discussing which seats we will contest, we must acknowledge the urgent need to educate the nation on the humanity and value of unborn children and the reality of abortion. We urge candidates we stand against to see our work in light of this need.

As Martin Luther King Junior once said:

Like a boil that can never be cured so long as it is covered up but must be opened with all its ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light, injustice must be exposed, with all the tension its exposure creates, to the light of human conscience and the air of national opinion before it can be cured.

Ultimately we are exposing an injustice here. This will no doubt cause tension, pain and ugliness. But these are necessary displeasures if we are to heal.

2) Support for Pro-Life Parties

While one of our stated aims is to encourage voters to move away from mainstream parties that are silent on or supportive of abortion, we do not wish to hinder small parties already working towards the abolition of abortion. Therefore, by prior discussion, we have agreements that, where possible, we won't stand against the CPA, Heritage or the Scottish Family Party. If these parties have candidates in your constituency please let us know and we will try to place you elsewhere.

3) Exclusions from Key Battleground Seats

This agreement excludes key battleground seats where pro-abortion MPs are planning to stand. For example Walthamstow, Ealing and Hull. In such seats our in depth knowledge of their policies mean it will be advantageous to all for us to stand against them.

4) Support for Pro-Life Candidates

We also won't oppose pro-life candidates from any major parties, provided they support legislation to reform and restrict UK abortion law in a substantial way. For example would they support the UK's first fetal heartbeat bill.

5) Criteria for Opposition

This means that, following a process of meaningful correspondence behind the scenes, we may stand against certain "Christian" or "pro-life" candidates who objectively fall short of clear moral, legal and biblical standards in defence of life. As uncomfortable as this may be, we trust that the millions of victims of abortion (children, mothers and fathers) will appreciate this stance.
