Contact your MP today re this Friday's sex ed bill

Chris Bryant’s private member’s bill to make sex and relationships education (SRE) compulsory in all schools is due for second reading this Friday, 11 February. SPUC has produced a detailed briefing on the Bryant bill. Although the bill is unlikely to make further progress due to procedural reasons, if you know that your member of parliament (MP) is sympathetic to pro-life concerns, please contact him or her and ask them to be available to speak and vote against the bill. You can contact your MP via the SPUC website at http://www.spuc.org.uk/mps Please remember to forward any replies you receive from MPs to SPUC HQ political@spuc.org.uk

Chinese president denies existence of forced abortion policy

During a recent state visit to the United States, Hu Jintao, the Chinese president, denied the existence of a forced abortion policy. Steven Mosher, an expert on the one-child policy and president of the Population Research Institute (PRI), described Mr Hu's denial as a "bald-faced lie". SPUC is calling upon UK pro-lifers to protest to the Chinese embassy in London. [John Smeaton, 5 February] http://bit.ly/dIckSC
