Nicklinson euthanasia push undermines security of us all

21 July 2010

A leading anti-euthanasia group has said that a disabled man's push for euthanasia undermines everyone's security. No Less Human, a group within SPUC Pro-Life representing disabled people, was responding to the legal challenge launched by Tony Nicklinson, who is seeking voluntary euthanasia by lethal dose. Janet Thomas of No Less Human commented: "[T]he killing of vulnerable, innocent people, whether able-bodied or not, is never right, even when those people ask to be killed. The deliberate killing of any innocent person damages the interests of us all." [SPUC, 20 July] http://bit.ly/cC6neQ

African babies under threat from pro-abortion push at Uganda summit

SPUC are appealing for help to counter an immediate threat to the unborn and mothers in Africa. The African Union is currently holding a summit in Kampala, Uganda, which will continue until 27 July. The summit will consider a number of documents that openly promote abortion in Africa. If the summit approves the pro-abortion documents, those texts will then be used repeatedly against all African countries that currently protect the unborn against abortion. Follow the link in this story to help SPUC counter this terrible threat to mothers and to the unborn. [SPUC, 19 July] http://bit.ly/a9TDSf

Join our campaign against TV abortion ads

SPUC has produced a flyer explaining why TV adverts that promote abortion should be stopped. The leaflet is easy to read and provides a powerful counter to the Marie Stopes TV advertising campaign. SPUC is asking British residents to consider volunteering to distribute the flyer over the summer months. To order flyers please email johnsmeaton@spuc.org.uk [John Smeaton, 17 July] http://bit.ly/b9JqnD

Reports of women being sterilised without consent in Uzbekistan and South Africa

Saodat Rakhimbayeva, an Uzbek woman, believes she was deliberately sterilised as part of a nationwide campaign to lower the birthrate. Her surgeon removed part of her uterus while delivering her baby by Caesarean section. The surgeon claimed the uterus was cancerous, but Mrs Rakhimbayeva said she never consented to the operation.
