Our work depends on the generosity of people who remember SPUC in their Wills. If you already give to SPUC, please don't stop. Regular giving supports the work that we already do to protect unborn children. However, if you leave a legacy to SPUC in your Will, it will help us provide a strong voice for unborn children long into the future.
Some facts about Wills
A Will can provide you with peace of mind before your death and enables you to give to the people and causes which mean most to you. Two-thirds of us will never get round to writing our Will. In some cases, this could mean that the government receives our estate instead of the people and organisations we would like to benefit. Being married or living with someone is no guarantee that your next-of-kin will receive your whole estate, should you die without making a valid Will. Even if you already have made a Will, it is important to revisit it to make sure it still reflects your wishes. Whenever your circumstances change, e.g. a birth or death in your family, or if you intend to marry, it is important to update your Will.
Help to write or update your Will
Whether you decide to make a special gift to SPUC or not, it's important to make a Will. It's your chance to avoid misunderstandings, ensure that your family's needs are met and remember causes that were important to you during your lifetime. For an easy-to-follow Will guide which will give you more information about writing or amending your Will, and if you wish, leaving a legacy to SPUC, please contact Carole Adamson on (01772) 258580 or email email@example.com.
The work of SPUC
Campaigning and lobbying
SPUC is committed to building a powerful and peaceful resistance movement to oppose anti-life legislation in the UK and overseas. The Society's growing volunteer branch and activist network is helping to gain the support of the public with a variety of national campaigns and public events. SPUC also has experienced lobbyists working for the pro-life cause in the UK and Northern Ireland, as well as at the European Parliament and the United Nations.
SPUC plays a major role in taking the pro-life message into schools and colleges. Trained speakers throughout the UK alert future generations to the facts about abortion and the humanity of the unborn child. Pro-life leaflets and educational student packs are available free-of-charge to meet the needs of GCSE and A level students and teachers who are examining life issues as part of their curriculum.
SPUC isn't afraid to challenge anti-life measures in the courts where it is prudent to do so. In recent years the Society has opposed the sale of abortion-inducing morning-after pills in UK pharmacies, intervened when pro-euthanasia advocates have tried to change the law to allow the killing of sick and disabled people and challenged attempts by the pro-abortion lobby to introduce easily available abortion to Northern Ireland.
Pro-life care services
SPUC offers free help and advice to pro-life parents and teachers who oppose anti-life sex education, friendship and support to disabled supporters and their carers and a free helpline advice service for the relatives of patients at risk from starvation and dehydration.
