MP tells SPUC meeting: Sanctity of life probably most important aspect of Christianity

myself, Paul Kilbane and Anne Fearon of SPUC Crosby, Joe Benton
Last Friday evening, Joe Benton, Labour MP for Bootle, addressed the annual general meeting (AGM) of SPUC's Crosby branch, held at St. Helen’s Catholic Church. Mr Benton is joint secretary of the All-Party Parliamentary Pro-Life Group (APPPLG).

I was accompanied to the meeting by Anthony McCarthy, SPUC’s newly-appointed Education and Publications Manager.

Mr Benton expressed his horror about aspects of sex and relationships education (SRE) in schools, including in Catholic schools. He spoke eloquently about the sanctity of human life, saying it was probably the most important aspect of our Christian faith. He emphasised his appreciation of SPUC and the support it had offered him in dealing with pro-life issues in Parliament.
