SPUC challenges Blair over life-issues

I wrote today to Tony Blair, the former British Prime Minister, to ask him if he will repudiate some of his previous political actions now that he has become a Catholic. I'm sure that SPUC's Catholic members, like me, are pleased to hear of anyone's conversion to our church. However, it's natural to feel concern about how Mr Blair behaved both as a backbencher and as prime minister. This is an opportunity for him to come clean and give witness to the pro-life stance, which we earnestly hope he has now embraced. I hope that, in his various new roles on the world stage, Mr Blair might try to undo some of the harm he has done.
