Carla Lockhart, the DUP MP for Upper Bann has been appointed the Co-Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Pro-Life Group in Westminster parliament.

Ms Lockhart has been a vocal MP in defending the right to life since she won her seat in 2019. She has also campaigned with disability rights advocate Heidi Crowter for a ban on the discriminatory law imposed on Northern Ireland that permits abortion up to birth where an unborn baby is diagnosed with a disability.

In her new appointment, she will join Fiona Bruce MP as co-chair of the All Party Parliamentary Pro-Life Group. Hopefully they’ll achieve great things working as a team, along with their other colleagues in the All Party Parliamentary Pro-Life Group.
