The Scottish Catholic Medical Association will be meeting tomorrow morning, Saturday 12th May, at Turnbull Hall in Glasgow University, and hosting a talk on crisis pregnancy consulting. The speaker will be Clare Bremner, who works with ARCH (Abortion Recovery Care and Helpline). Clare is an excellent speaker and well worth hearing. Pro-life students will also speak about their experience at the March for Life in Washington DC. Anyone is welcome to come to the meeting, no need to be a member to attend. Further details are on the poster 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.

Nurse or nursing student? Please sign the letter against any RCN move to support the introduction of abortion on demand, for any reason.
Janet Davies, the Chief Executive of the Royal College of Nurses (RCN), has announced that a panel of RCN staff and members will be deciding on a positioning statement for the RCN on the complete removal of all legal restriction and sanctions regarding abortion. If these measures were to be implemented, it would mean the introduction of abortion on demand, for any reason, to at least 28 weeks and possibly up to birth. Ann Furedi, the CEO of abortion provider BPAS, who are running the campaign to ‘decriminalise’ abortion, has made it clear that they are aiming for the latter, the introduction of abortion up to birth. The Royal College of Midwives’ position in support of ‘decriminalisation’, which saw a large public backlash when it was adopted, has subsequently been used extensively by abortion provider BPAS as a key plank in their political lobbying for the introduction of abortion, on demand, for any reason up to birth. Ahead of this panel deciding the position, the RCN are running a ‘survey’ of the RCN membership which does not allow for members of the RCN to vote on the specific wording of the final positioning statement. It instead asks a single question on whether members support or oppose the broad concept of ‘decriminalisation’ and only commits that members’ input will ‘inform’ the work that will lead to the final position this panel will decide on. If you are a nurse or nursing student, please take action by putting your name to the public joint letter (link below) to the Chief Executive of the Royal College of Nurses, Janet Davies, to voice your concern about this extreme move.
Please pray for a woman who is 14 weeks pregnant and under huge pressure from people around her to have an abortion. The abortion is booked for 2 weeks time. Pray for a change of heart to those pressuring her into this abortion and for the support and strength she needs to continue with her pregnancy.
This year is the 50th anniversary of the passing of the 1967 Abortion Act in the UK. Sr Roseann is answering 50 questions about abortion, to mark the 50th anniversary.
Question 39: “I agree that science now proves that at 24 weeks babies can be born alive and survive, so shouldn’t we just reduce the time limit to say 20 weeks?”
