Please pray for Julie, who has an abortion booked for tomorrow. She is really unsupported by her boyfriend and family. Pray for a change of heart and the support that she needs.


The Be Here For Me campaign, by Mothers who have been helped by Pro-Life vigils outside abortion centres has produced an excellent short video which is well worth viewing. https://behereforme.org/

Please have a look at their website and take action to stop the introduction of censorship zones around abortion clinics.

Question 49: The language of abortion

 


DUNDEE: THURSDAY 12th APRIL, 7pm, St Andrew’s Cathedral Hall, Dundee. 
DUMFRIES: TUESDAY 17th April, 7pm, St Teresa’s Hall, Glasgow Road, Dumfries. 

Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) Scotland will be hosting stops on the Right Side Tour in both Dundee and Dumfries. 

The Right Side Tour aims to inform people about the campaign to decriminalise abortion. The pro-abortion movement continues to grow even more extreme in their agenda, now pushing for the decriminalisation of abortion. This would mean the extension of abortion up to birth for any reason. Abortion remains a criminal offence under law, unless it satisfies the conditions of the 1967 Abortion Act. The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) have launched a campaign called “We Trust Women,” aiming to remove abortion from criminal law. This would null the 1967 Abortion Act, and any existing restrictions on abortion with it, including the 24 week time-limit. This would be the most drastic extension of abortion since 1967.
To find out more about the issue and learn how to help, come to one of the events. We are grateful to those hosting us and look forward to seeing you there.
