SPUC Scotland protests against abortionists' conference [Edinburgh Evening News, 16 October]

SPUC youth and student newsletter published
SPUC has today published a youth and student newsletter. In its history, SPUC has consistently sought to support pro-life young adults and students. This has included support for pro-life societies, speakers, conferences, public acts of witness, and campaign materials. In the last few years we’ve seen a resurgence of pro-life youth societies in the UK. Our international youth conference has gone from strength to strength, making it the largest pro-life youth event in the UK. We felt that it was a good time to re-launch a straightforward, action-focused newsletter, about how we can work together for the culture of life. Please forward this newsletter to a friend. It features information about:
  • SPUC's 9 Million Children campaign
  • SPUC's pro-life speaker taster training day
  • SPUC's youth blog
  • SPUC's internship scheme
  • SPUC's campaign to inform people about abortion-inducing forms of birth control
  • SPUC's campaign to defend marriage, which protects unborn children
  • SPUC's universities speaker tour
  • SPUC's international youth conference
  • news of other pro-life events and resources
Abortion poster campaign move condemned as cynical by SPUC
Responding the announcement that the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), one of Britain's main abortion providers, is launching a national billboard poster campaign, Anthony Ozimic, SPUC's communications manager, commented: "BPAS, which is a lucrative abortion enterprise, is cynically exploiting the hype over the upper-limit debate to drum up more clients. BPAS knows very well that there is no realistic prospect of new abortion limits getting past Parliament's large pro-abortion majority. Instead of pursuing the red herring of time-limits, ministers should instead cut off the tens of millions of pounds the government hands to BPAS in NHS contracts." [SPUC, 15 October]
