There will be a short briefing in the hall, after which we will gather at Uddingston Cross for 11am.
The purpose of the chain is not only to pray but also to show the community that the fight for the rights of the unborn child continues.

We are deeply saddened by the result of the Irish Referendum on the 8th Amendment. Here’s what ‘Save the 8th‘ campaign had to say about the result, which was in favour of repealing the 8th amendment:
“The 8th amendment did not create a right to life for the unborn child – it merely acknowledged that such a right exists, has always existed, and will always exist.
What Irish voters did yesterday is a tragedy of historic proportions. However, a wrong does not become right simply because a majority support it.
We are so proud of all of those who stood with us in this campaign – our supporters, our donors, our families, and our loved ones. This campaign took a huge personal toll on all of us who were involved, and we have been so grateful for their support.
The unborn child no longer has a right to life recognised by the Irish state. Shortly, legislation will be introduced that will allow babies to be killed in our country. We will oppose that legislation. If and when abortion clinics are opened in Ireland, because of the inability of the Government to keep their promise about a GP led service, we will oppose that as well. Every time an unborn child has his or her life ended in Ireland, we will oppose that, and make our voices known.
Abortion was wrong yesterday. It remains wrong today. The constitution has changed, but the facts have not.”

The first 16 minutes of a Newsnight programme last week (10th May) looked at some groups in the pro-life movement in the UK, as well as looking at the pro-choice side and discussing the idea of buffer zones. Worth a watch and, although the pro-choice representatives are not questioned in the same way that the pro-life representatives are, it is still good to see both sides rather than the often very biased reporting against pro-life.
The programme can be viewed using this link www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0b2r9yn/newsnight-10052018

A 15,000 name petition was delivered by SPUC Scotland to Nicola Sturgeon, on the 50th anniversary of the Abortion Act coming into force. This petition is against the further liberalisation of abortion in Scotland- BPAS is spearheading a campaign for the laws regulating abortion to be scrapped and instead to have abortion on demand up to birth, under the slogan “We Trust Women”. Over the past 50 years 500,000 lives in Scotland have been lost to abortion. The petitions were in 5 boxes and there were 5 empty prams, each representing 100,000 lives lost. See video below:

The Be Here For Me campaign, by Mothers who have been helped by Pro-Life vigils outside abortion centres has produced an excellent short video which is well worth viewing. https://behereforme.org/
Please have a look at their website and take action to stop the introduction of censorship zones around abortion clinics.
