Exeter - Pro-Life Universities Tour
Posted by Daniel Blackman on 3 July 2013
Lizzie Anderson has done a great job of starting the pro-life society at Exeter University. Lizzie and friends had been to the SPUC international pro-life youth conference, giving them the opportunity to hear some great speakers and network with students who were already running pro-life societies.
So, whilst Joseph Meaney spoke at Plymouth, SPUC's communications and media manager Anthony Ozimic took the train down to speak the group in Exeter. Anthony spoke about the effect of abortion on the moral character of abortionists. I asked Lizzie to send me a short report of the talk, and here it is:
On 17th October, the Exeter Students For Life society was very lucky to be able to welcome Anthony Ozimic to the university. As a new society on campus, this event provided a great platform from which to engage with the issue of abortion from an unusual and often overlooked angle, that of abortionists. Anthony’s talk was filled with interesting and quite shocking insight into the effects of abortion on abortionists. It included quotes from abortionists and ex-abortionists that really threw light on the truly destructive nature of the industry. There was plenty of opportunity for discussion afterwards and some interesting questions were raised. Everyone who attended, pro-life and otherwise, said they found the talk both thought provoking and insightful. There was a great attendance and so it has really been instrumental in getting the society off to a good start as we look forward to an exciting year ahead. Many thanks to all those at SPUC who made the university tour possible!

The students and Anthony had a nice supper together before Anthony headed back to London. Apologies, no pictures of the talk this time, so here's a picture of Exeter campus...
