Shout Your Abortion campaign won't help suffering women

29 September 2015

The "Shout Your Abortion" campaign run by pro-abortion activists won't help suffering women, says the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC), the UK's largest and oldest pro-life organisation.

The campaign, launched on Twitter with the hashtag #ShoutYourAbortion, has generated controversy recently days, particularly while abortion-related legislation was being debated in the United States Congress.

John Smeaton, SPUC's chief executive, commented: "Our hearts go out to women who have had an abortion and who are struggling to come to terms with what has happened - the killing of their unborn child. Pro-abortion campaigners shouting about their abortions will not in any way help post-abortive women who are suffering in silence."

    Miss McLernon is a very brave lady putting her neck on the line by exosping the harm done to our children in some Catholic Schools. I'm sure many teachers could report similar events if they didn't fear the loss of their jobs or victimization. How frightening that we need to worry about what Morals are now being transmitted in a Catholic school - parents beware - there are few places where your children are safe. Keep an eye on what goes on in the school, ask your children what they have done today and make sure you read all the letters they bring home. Don't be afraid to phone the school and question whatever you are not happy with. Remember you only get once chance to bring up your children and you will be held accountable, blaming the school is not an option.
