Young pro-life women stand their ground at pro-abortion Goldsmiths University
On 25 September Daniel Blackman, SPUC's campaigns & education officer, and a group of five brave young women went to Goldsmiths University in London to hand out leaflets to new students. The level of hostility and harassment was appalling. What began as some simple leafleting ended with us being followed by a group of 15 aggressive pro-abortion students chanting, swearing at us, blocking us with placards, and then being followed several hundred metres down the road.

Safe at School campaign to address Hounslow parents concerned about sex education in primary schools
Worried parents in Hounslow have invited Antonia Tully of SPUC's Safe at School campaign to talk to them about their rights as parents and how they can protect their children from explicit sex education. The meeting will take place on Tuesday 1 October, 7-9 pm at Wellington Day Centre, Staines Road, Hounslow, TW4 5BA. Mrs Tully said: "I will be telling parents in Hounslow that they are the experts in their children's lives. Only a parent knows when a child is ready to hear about the intimate details of human sexuality. This should be done in the privacy of the child's home, not publicly in the classroom. I will be showing parents how explicit sex education materials sexualise their children."  [SPUC, 27 September]

Protest outside abortion meeting during Labour's Brighton conference
A pro-life protest took place outside a meeting to promote abortion, during this past week's Labour's Brighton conference. 18 members of SPUC formed a silent chain of placard-holders outside a fringe meeting organised by the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), one of Britain's largest chains of abortionists. 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. [SPUC, 25 September]
