Pope will be visiting Britain the valley of the culture of death says SPUC London, 23 September 2009 - When the Pope visits Britain next year, the country he will find is "the valley of the culture of death", said the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) tonight.
John Smeaton, SPUC director, commented: "In Britain, the government organises secret abortions on schoolgirls behind parents' backs. The chief prosecutor has today issued rules tolerating assisted suicide, under which the disabled will be treated as second-class citizens. The leaders of the major political parties all voted for sinister destructive experiments on embryonic children. I hope that Pope Benedict will issue stern reminders to church leaders and Catholic parliamentarians of their absolute duty to place the right to life from conception to natural death at the top of Britain's moral and political agenda."
