Since the Abortion Act passed in 1967 there have been an estimated 6.6 million abortions in Britain.

In 1990 the pro-life lobby successfully campaigned for a lowering of the abortion limit from 28 to 24 weeks, but has made no further legislative progress since.

Has the pro-life movement lost its nerve? Is there a clear vision for how to go about reducing the number of abortions in Britain? And what exactly is the pro-life movement trying to achieve?

Join Ann Widdecombe, former Shadow Secretary of State for Health, Eve Farren of the Alliance of Pro-Life Students and Right to Life campaigner Peter D Williams as they get stuck into these questions.

We hope you enjoy listening to this discussion and welcome your feedback.
