If you’ve just returned from the SPUC Youth Conference (and even if you haven’t) have a look at some of our tips to keep you from sinking into those post-conference blues. This weekend was only the beginning of a new pro-life journey!…
1. STAY CONNECTED
No doubt you met a number of new people & pro-life groups over the weekend – stay in touch, get involved with the activities of the groups you met. Being actively pro-life is so much easier when you have the support of pro-life friends and groups!
2. BE THAT ONE
Fiorella Nash spoke about the impact that just one person and one act can have in building a culture of life. We are required to be living witnesses to the pro-life message, because if we don’t live it…how will we affect change? Never underestimate what one single pro-life act can do, our mission is to work at changing society one heart at a time. As Fiorella said, you may be the only person who stands in between a woman facing a crisis pregnancy and an abortion clinic. It’s not about trying to change the world single-handedly, but about discovering what you can do…and doing it. This is how real change will happen.
3. COME TO THE UK MARCH FOR LIFE
Why not join hundreds of other pro-lifers at the 2nd UK March for Life on Sat 22nd March in Birmingham? Bring a friend!
4. GET INVOLVED WITH A UNIVERSITY STUDENT GROUP
Many of you will have met representatives from the Alliance of Pro-Life Students this weekend. If you are a student, why not join or start a pro-life society at your university? It is vital that the pro-life message is heard in university campuses, in order for a pro-life culture to created. The Alliance of Pro-Life Students was formed by a group of students and graduates from different pro-life societies across the UK. Please visit www.allianceofprolifestudents.org.uk to find out more.
5. JOIN OR START PROJECT TRUTH IN YOUR AREA
Hopefully you had a chance to chat to some of the Project Truth team at the conference and visit our stall! This the new youth outreach project run by SPUC Scotland. This project provides an opportunity for young people to bring the pro-life message to the general public who might not hear it anywhere else. Project Truth aims to dispel the myths and promote the truth on pro-life issues in a positive and tangible way. If you are aged between 16-30, why not join or start Project Truth in your area or at your university? Material and practical help on the day can be provided by SPUC Scotland & the Project Truth core team.

6. SIGN-UP TO BE PART OF THE PROJECT TRUTH ROADSHOW IN AUGUST
If you didn’t get a chance to sign up for the roadshow at the conference, there’s still time! In August this year, the first Project Truth Roadshow will take place in Scotland. The event will run for 6 days, reaching between 7 and 9 cities and towns across Scotland. The roadshow will enable us to:
- Bring the pro-life message to thousands of people throughout Scotland.
- Create a stronger pro-life youth network in Scotland Connect a new generation of youth with our organisation.
IT’S ONLY £50 FOR THE FULL WEEK! Accommodation, travel & 2 meals per day (breakfast and dinner) for each participant will be provided. Please email email@example.com to sign up.
7. SOCIAL MEDIA
The impact that can be made by being actively pro-life through social media should not be underestimated or overlooked. A recent survey showed that nearly 1 in 4 people throughout the world use social networking, people are getting so used to this method of communication that we simply must bring the pro-life message to these forums…and believe that it will make a difference! You just never know who will be touched by what you share. So get ‘liking’, ‘sharing’, ‘tweeting’ and ‘blogging’ the pro-life message! Here are just some of the sources you can use to help get you started:
