So, get watching and sharing these videos- they are short, sharp and to the point and will give you all the reasons for why we are pro-life.

Question 8: But what if the woman is raped?
December 6, 2015
A truly sad decision for unborn children occurred last week. Here is SPUC’s take on the situation and what the future might hold for abortion legislation.
BELFAST 30 November 2015: The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC), the UK’s leading pro-life organisation, says that the ruling by the High Court that Northern Ireland’s ban on abortion breaches human rights is “dangerously flawed”.
SPUC is calling on the Attorney General to work with pro-life groups to mount a robust appeal against the judgement.
Earlier this year the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission applied for a judicial review of the law. The Commission claimed that the law, which prohibits abortion, violates the European Convention on Human Rights because it does not make exceptions for children who are disabled or whose mothers had been victims of rape or sexual assault.
Liam Gibson, the Northern Ireland development officer for SPUC, which intervened in the case, said:
“The ruling by Judge Mark Horner is dangerously flawed. The judge misrepresented the protection of children before birth in case law and statute law in Northern Ireland. He also confused the separate legal issues of viability and the capacity to be born alive.”
Liam Gibson continued:
“Not one universal human rights treaty recognises a right to abortion. However, the right to life is shared by all members of the human family. The Declaration on the Rights of the Child (DRC) acknowledges that ‘the child, by reason of his physical and mental immaturity, needs special safeguards and care, including appropriate legal protection, before as well as after birth’. The DRC explicitly states that the need for such special safeguards is ‘recognised in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights’.”
The greatest strength of SPUC’s campaign in Northern Ireland over the past several decades has been the united opposition to abortion by the overwhelming majority of the community by Catholics and Protestants alike. May that unity, supported by prayer, grow ever stronger as we work to restore the protection of the law for unborn children, the most persecuted group of human beings in world history.

Every person who advocates abortion for rape needs to listen to this woman….
May 11, 2015
Conceiving a child through rape is one of the most difficult issues, in the abortion debate. It divides people and raises the temperature of any exchange of views. Many people see it as the dividing line in the whole issue and cannot accept that in these most difficult of circumstances, that the baby must live.
I believe that we need to keep listening to those women who have been through a rape and chosen to keep their child to hear properly the facts of these tragic circumstances; violence + sex+ pregnancy can lead to healing and life. Let’s spread the message that even though we abhor the violence of the act, the conceived child must not be punished for the crimes of his/her father.
