Right Side Tour: Dumbarton 9th May (Wednesday)

May 5, 2018

May 9th, 19:30
St. Patrick’s Church Hall
Strathleven Place

Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) Scotland will be hosting the next stop on the Right Side Tour in Dumbarton on next Wednesday the 9th May. This is the eight stop on the tour, which has been gaining momentum. If you live near Dumbarton – this event is not to be missed!
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, includign the 24 week time-limit. This would be the most drastic extenstion of abortion since 1967.
To find out more about the issue and learn how to help, come to the event. It will be on Wednesday, 9th May at 7:30pm in St. Patrick’s Hall on Strathleven Place. We look forward to seeing you there.
