A blog launched on the 41st anniversary of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC), the first pro-life organisation in the world, established on 11 January 1967. SPUC has been a leader in the educational and political battle against abortion, human embryo experimentation and euthanasia since then. I write this blog in my role as SPUC's chief executive, commenting on pro-life news, reflecting on pro-life issues and promoting SPUC's work.

SPUC in high court in Belfast on Monday
SPUC is seeking leave on Monday (29 June) for a judicial review of the Northern Ireland government's guidance on abortion. The high court in Belfast may make its decision known on the same day.
We argue that the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety's guidance distorts the law and threatens unborn children.
