Welcome to [community profile] prolifeprogressives. Hopefully over the coming weeks we will improve the look of this blog.

The inspiration of this blog was a frustration with the landscape of pro-life/anti-abortion activism and discourse in the UK. Last summer, when parliament debated changing the laws surrounding abortion, it seemed that the only voices in the media opposing abortion were those of Christian (usually Catholic) right-wing men. Where, we wondered, were the voices of left-wing, feminist pro-lifers? People who wish to protect the lives of the unborn in the same spirit as they wish to protect the lives of asylum seekers, and view both within the context of a world in which the powerful exploit the weak and push the exploited into fighting each other. If we weren't hearing people who represented our views, the answer seemed to be to make our voices heard, and a group blog was a start. Maybe we'll be able to challenge some people's preconceptions and have our own challenged.

This blog won't just be about the issue of abortion. We'll be discussion all manner of political issues which take our interest and which we want to raise awareness of. We won't always agree with each other. Each contributor expresses her own views.
