Announcing the Alliance of Pro-Life Students
Wednesday 16th of January sees the official London launch of the Alliance of Pro-Life Students, an exciting new organisation dedicated to building, supporting and connecting student pro-life societies in Great Britain. Their stated mission is to encourage a culture of life and bring the pro-life voice back to British universities.
Their foundation came as a response to the increasing number of pro-choice motions being passed by student unions, as well as first-hand experience of the many problems and chronic isolation experienced by pro-life students. They launched in Edinburgh in November, despite the actions of protestors who tried to silence them and demanded the event be cancelled.
The London event is taking place at 7.30pm next Wednesday at the Thistle Hotel, Marble Arch, with special guest speaker Lord Alton. It is open to everyone, student or not, who supports the mission of spreading the pro-life message at universities, and protecting the interests of pro-life students. It promises to be a great opportunity to hear about the vision for student pro-life activism in the UK.
Tickets can be purchased HERE or on the door. Protestors are expected (banners already being made; glow-sticks to hand..) to picket this peaceful event, but they will not diminish the zeal of these youngsters nor hinder the pro-life cause. Indeed, opposition is to be expected when you're about God's work.
