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.

SPUC Pro-Life Youth Conference is a golden opportunity for young people
We are now exactly 3 weeks away from the first day of the
2016 International SPUC Youth Conference, which will take place in Hoddesdon,
Hertfordshire (a 40 minute journey from central London) from the 11th
to the 13th of March. This conference has been vital in educating,
uniting and inspiring the pro-life youth of today to go out and be witnesses to
the pro-life cause at university, school, at work and within their own families
and amongst their friends.
The conference is a golden opportunity not only for young
people to learn more about current pro-life issues, but also for them to
network and socialise with other like-minded people. In this age, when so many
fear vilification for valuing human life and the family, it is more important
than ever that young pro-lifers keep in contact with one another and support
each other’s work.
This year, we have another exciting line-up of speakers,
including Bobby Schindler who is the Executive Director of the Terri Schiavo
Life & Hope Network – the organisation dedicated to his sister, who was
starved and dehydrated to death despite the valiant efforts of her family.
Other speakers include Obianuju Ekeocha, who is making waves in Africa through
her pro-life work in defence of Africa’s traditional pro-family and pro-life
culture. To read a short biography of each speaker, please visit the SPUC blog:
