Vigil at European court next Wednesday

Next Wednesday 9 December, SPUC supporters will be holding a vigil outside the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France between 9am and 12 noon. Anyone who wishes to join the vigil should be near the main entrance of the court by 9am. The vigil is being held as the court considers the A, B and C v Ireland case. A decision by the court could result in all member-states of the Council of Europe being forced to review their laws. The effect could be similar to the Roe v Wade judgment in America, which struck down all restrictive laws on abortion in the United States by recognising a right to abortion.
