Anniversary of the Abortion Act
Comment Email Print
¬†More than six million abortions have taken place in the UK since the operation was made legal in October 1967. Two major events are taking place in the capital to mark the day. On Sunday, prolife groups will be gathering together at Westminster Central Hall at 2pm to mark the 35th anniversary of the Abortion Act. Described as 'an act of dedication and reparation', speakers will include human rights campaigner, James Mawdsley, Peter Garrett, director of education and research at LIFE and Fiorella Sultana de Maria, Cambridge University Prolife Society. The culmination of the event will be a minute silence to remember the lives lost followed by signing of a pledge card to reaffirm the absolute right to life of every human being 'man or woman, young or old, born or unborn'. The evening will see the World Premier of 'Requiem for the Innocents' composed by Joseph A Estorninho and performed by The Alethian Orchestra and The St Cecilia Choir. The conductor will be David Fellingham. The concert is being held at St Patrick's Church, Soho Square. The concert starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10.00 and available on the door or from LIFE. For more information or tickets contact; or telephone LIFE on 01926 421587
