SPUC has thanked His Eminence Cardinal Keith O'Brien, archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, on the occasion of his retirement, for the many times in which he spoke out forcefully in defence of unborn children and of the family founded on marriage between one man and one woman. John Smeaton, SPUC director, commented: "I am particularly grateful for the personal support which he gave to SPUC and to me in my role as SPUC director. He can be assured of my prayers and those of SPUC supporters for him and for his successor." [John Smeaton, 25 February]
