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. I wrote 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. I retired from my post on 31st August 2021 and will therefore be adding no further posts.

Resistance to anti-family sex education bears results
St George resisting evil
Our colleagues at LifeSiteNews.com report that the premier of the Canadian state of Ontario has put his administration's anti-family sex education curriculum on hold following protests from parents, pro-family groups and the state's Catholic bishops. Similar pressure resulted in the British government agreeing to drop similar plans from its Children, Schools and Families bill, albeit until after the general election. The call by Archbishop Terrence Prendergast of Ottawa for “a firestorm of response” to the curriculum couldn't be more in contrast with the shameful complicity of the Catholic Education Service (CES) of England and Wales with the British government's plans to corrupt our children, and Vincent Nichols' (archbishop of Westminster) support for those plans. When will Catholic parents in England and Wales be relieved of oppression by episcopal policy in this country?
More evidence of government-backed attempts to corrupt our children is reported in today's Daily Mail. Government-funded charity workers have been handing out condoms to children as young as eight playing in a park in Hull, east Yorkshire. Samanatha Fuller, the aunt of one eight year-old and mother of one 13 year-old offered the condoms, said:
"She's my daughter, she's not the Government's daughter, the council's daughter or the youth centre's daughter. They will not care about my daughter if anything happens, it's my responsibility."
Now and in the aftermath of the general election, parents up and down the country must show similar resistance to attempts to enshrine and extend such child abuse through legislation on sex education.
