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.

professor at Hull university has written a report which revealed "around

requested euthanasia." Authored by Professor Raphael Cohen-Almagor of Hull
university and published by the Journal of Medical Ethics, the report brings
into question the existing euthanasia laws in Belgium. Cohen-Almagor states:
"The decision as to which life is no longer worth living is not in the
hands of the patient but in the hands of the doctor." [Daily Mail, 12 June]
