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.

2nd Trimester surgical abortion reminds us why we must stop abortion in UK
SPUC Scotland's motivational message issued today via Twitter is: "The fight for the right to life is not the cause of a special few, but the cause of every man, woman and child who cares not only about his or her own family, the whole family of man" - the words of Dr Mildred Jefferson, Dr. Mildred Jefferson, a prominent, outspoken opponent of abortion and the first black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School who died in 2010.
How true! And yet, sadly how few people, including people we know personally, realise this truth.
2017 will mark the 50th anniversary of the passage of the British Abortion Act, which has been responsible for the killing of around 8.7 million unborn children – with all the devastation that has involved for countless mothers, fathers and other family members. Let’s resolve to do much more to build our pro-life movement into a great, historic, really effective movement which stops abortion in the UK.
SPUC is launching this year a commemorative tour visiting towns and cities the length and the breadth of the country, taking with us our message and plan of action stopping abortion in the UK. If you want SPUC's commemorative tour to visit your area, contact email@example.com
Help SPUC to help you to stop abortion in the UK.
In February 2016, Live Action produced a compelling series of videos which remind us exactly why abortion must stop. If you haven’t watched them, I recommend you do now. Dr Levatino, the former abortionist who features in the video, is speaking at SPUC’s youth conference in Stone, Staffordshire (3 – 5 March). Any young person(16 – 35) wishing to attend should contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
