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."

    wow! absolutely fantastic news ...4,000 gathered to say Yes to Life, and no to murder of our babies in the womb.!

    Gives us all courage to push forward with you together, united !
    God bless John Smeaton for his outstanding leadership over so many years and all the members of SPUC - which thankfully is growing all over the UK... and the SPUC staff and all who took part. We will win this battle because Christ is leading it!
