More on SPUC

Please visit SPUC and read their new leaflet "Under pressure", which explains the latest proposed pro-abortion amendments to the Abortion Act. These amendments are due to be considered (if selected for debate by the Speaker) by MPs in October at the Report stage of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology bill. October's parliamentary debate on these pro-abortion amendments could lead to the most damaging extension of the Abortion Act for over 40 years.

Please help us alert people to this threat by ordering a supply of leaflets to distribute. Would you consider ordering sufficient leaflets to distribute them in your street or in a number of streets in your local area? You can order leaflets by contacting Liz Foody at SPUC HQ, email lizfoody@spuc.org.uk , phone (0)20 7091 7091.

You might also consider approaching local clergy at your place of worship or other local places of worship, asking them to allow you and/or others to distribute the leaflets and encouraging clergy to order more leaflets for their congregations.

Please write to the prime minister and to your own MP

Please write yourself to the prime minister and to your own MP! For information to help you write and send your letter, please read both the "Under pressure" leaflet and SPUC's latest detailed briefing at this link.

As our leaflet states: pro-abortion MPs want to abolish even the minimal constraints in the Abortion Act, like needing a second doctor to authorise an abortion. They want nurses and midwives to perform abortions (which makes it cheaper, but not safer). They want the Abortion Act extended to Northern Ireland against the wishes of the vast majority of people living there. Pro-abortion MPs also want punitive restrictions on pregnancy counsellors who don't refer women for abortions. If these amendments are passed it is likely to mean more abortions than ever before: more babies will die. Reluctant women will face more pressure than ever to submit to abortions.

Please copy any replies you receive to Anthony Ozimic, SPUC political secretary, either by email at anthony@ozimic.com or by post to SPUC HQ.

Please pray and fast to protect Northern Ireland from British Abortion Act

Liam Gibson, SPUC's development officer in Northern Ireland, has published and distributed widely in Northern Ireland a paper entitled "Prayer and Fasting to prevent the extension of the Abortion Act [to Northern Ireland]" which calls for a 40-day fast from Wednesday, 20 August, until Saturday, 4 October (excluding Sundays - or on another 40-day period of your choice). If you are interested in joining or promoting the fast.
