Leading experts will address SPUC's int'l youth conference, 22-24 March

Here's a letter to all young people who are interested in supporting the pro-life movement, in Britain and overseas, from Anthony McCarthy, SPUC's education and publications manager:
There are less than 2 weeks left until the start of the SPUC's international pro-life youth conference 2013. This conference has proven a huge success in providing students and young adults with the knowledge, contacts, and motivation to be actively pro-life at their universities, in their parishes, with their friends, and in society at large. Every year we provide an expert line-up of speakers from all over the world, a comfortable venue, a well structured programme for each day, and plenty of time to socialise and make friends.

This year’s conference, from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th March, is the most important one ever. Why? Because, on top of the culture of death we already have (abortion, IVF, embryo research, spreading euthanasia, harmful sex education in schools), we now face a future, if the Government’s legislation is not defeated, where the institution of marriage has been undermined and emptied of its meaning in law; the connection between marriage and the procreation, protection, and education of children has been utterly severed.

There simply are no better leading experts around to address subjects such as e.g. the Liverpool Care Pathway than Professor Patrick Pullicino and than Dr Helen Watt on the ethics of pregnancy.

The international youth conference is our investment in the future of our families and society. It takes place at the Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, Derbyshire.”
“The atmosphere at the conference was spell-binding and I’m so glad we had the opportunity to attend such a life changing event!...It created an unbreakable sense of unity and friendship between us all. It has opened my mind to a whole new approach to pro-life and everything it stands to protect and defend.” – Student attendee, 2012
Therefore, please, if you can, take the time to publicise and help young members of your parish (aged 16 upwards) to come to the youth conference. We urgently need people to book now in order to make the conference a success.

There is nothing like it on offer at present and it is crucial for the future of the Pro-Life cause that young people attend in numbers and get seriously informed about the issues that face us all.

Sincere thanks in advance in helping provide this vital opportunity for our young people.
