In the last decade a number of university pro-life societies have sprung up around the UK, which is a very good thing.
Student societies bring likeminded pro-lifers together to shape and influence their university environment and bring the truth about human life to fellow students at a pivotal time in a person's life. After all, universities are where young people go in order to study subjects such as medicine, teaching, law and politics. These are all areas of public life where it is essential that pro-lifers are not silenced.
Equally, when you leave home and go to university you will encounter beliefs and ideologies which you may well never have come across before. It is a time when you should have the opportunity to explore new ideas, challenge established opinions and learn to think for yourself! It is essential that freedom of speech and expression on campus is not undermined.
At SPUC, we help student societies by providing expert speakers, providing pro-life leaflets and literature free of charge, providing advice on setting up a society and helping with any difficulties which might occur once established. We are always keen to keep in touch with students and support them in any way we can.
