‘LIFE FROM CONCEPTION, NO EXCEPTION’
On Saturday 16th March, the 3rd UK March for Life will take place in Birmingham. For the past 2 years SPUC Scotland have organised a bus going from Glasgow to the event, both times we’ve had the largest group in the UK attending the event! We are running a bus again this year and only have a few places left so make sure you book your place quickly! The cost of the bus is £15 or £10 for students/children/concessions. We recommend bringing a packed lunch for the journey. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place on the bus.
This year the keynote speaker is Gianna Jessen, who discovered at the age of 12 that she is an abortion survivor. Gianna shares her testimony with deep conviction and passion;”When I speak, I speak not only for myself, but for the other survivors…and also for those who cannot yet speak.” Her witness is powerful and will no doubt move and inspire each person present. Sometimes we become tired in the pro-life battle, but listening to speakers like Gianna reminds us why we stand firm in our conviction and efforts to end the horror and injustice of abortion.
