Right Side Tour: Dundee and Dumfries in April

April 8, 2018

DUNDEE: THURSDAY 12th APRIL, 7pm, St Andrew’s Cathedral Hall, Dundee. 
DUMFRIES: TUESDAY 17th April, 7pm, St Teresa’s Hall, Glasgow Road, Dumfries. 

Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) Scotland will be hosting stops on the Right Side Tour in both Dundee and Dumfries. 

The Right Side Tour aims to inform people about the campaign to decriminalise abortion. The pro-abortion movement continues to grow even more extreme in their agenda, now pushing for the decriminalisation of abortion. This would mean the extension of abortion up to birth for any reason. Abortion remains a criminal offence under law, unless it satisfies the conditions of the 1967 Abortion Act. The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) have launched a campaign called “We Trust Women,” aiming to remove abortion from criminal law. This would null the 1967 Abortion Act, and any existing restrictions on abortion with it, including the 24 week time-limit. This would be the most drastic extension of abortion since 1967.
To find out more about the issue and learn how to help, come to one of the events. We are grateful to those hosting us and look forward to seeing you there.
