8 Million Lives Too Many
27 October 2017
Marking 50 tragic years of abortion
Today, on the 50th Anniversary of the 1967 Abortion Act, crowds gathered outside Parliament for a minute's silence commemorating the over 8.8 million lives lost to abortion.
SPUC joined representatives of other pro-life organisations to mark this tragic anniversary with a minute’s silence from 11:04am - the moment Royal Assent for the Bill was declared 50 years ago.
Chief Executive John Smeaton said: "It was very good to stand shoulder to shoulder with other pro-life leaders. This is the way forward in the battles ahead."
