18 members of SPUC formed a silent chain of placard-holders (see photos below) outside a fringe meeting organised by the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), one of Britain's largest chains of abortionists. The fringe meeting, entitled "The politics of motherhood", was addressed by Kate Green MP, Labour's shadow women and equalities minster, and was held at The Old Ship Hotel.
The SPUC placards read: "Women do regret abortion", "Abortion kills children" and "Is this a choice or a child?".
Judy Law, a local SPUC activist, said:
"Many post-abortive mothers are badly affected by abortion. It is vital that BPAS, the Labour party, and the people of Brighton were reminded of this sad situation. It's a situation funded largely by taxpayers' money which is used to pay for almost all abortions."Trevor Stauss, another local SPUC activist, said:
"It is disingenuous of BPAS to use motherhood to further their radical pro-abortion agenda in this way. It is important that we offer a pro-life witness and denounce the evil of abortion in our local areas."Daniel Blackman, SPUC's campaigns & education officer, said:
"BPAS has a dangerous agenda. Ann Furedi, the head of BPAS, has recently defended sex-selective abortion. We must offer continual resistance on behalf of unborn children, the ones who cannot speak up or defend themselves."
