Brother of famous euthanasia victim to address major pro-life conference this weekend

Bobby Schindler
Bobby Schindler, brother of the late Terri Schiavo, will address SPUC's annual national conference this weekend in Derbyshire (Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, DE55 1AU) (full conference programme)

The conference starts on Friday (16 Sep.) evening with a presentation by young adults about their pro-life activities at university and in the street.

On Saturday (17 Sep.) Bobby Schindler will recount how his sister Terri Schiavo was starved and dehydated to death at her husband's behest, a case which made international headlines. Also on Saturday, delegates will hear about government policy on abortion in developing countries, and be introduced to SPUC's new talk for schools. Workshops will include pro-life lobbying in Europe and at the United Nations. The day's business will be followed by a ceilidh and socialising.

The conference will conclude on Sun (18 Sep.) morning with addresses by Dr Peter Saunders of the Christian Medical Fellowship, and by Antonia Tully on the graphic reality of what young children are shown in the classroom.

Live reports from the conference will appear throughout the weekend on this blog with additional reportage on SPUC's website
