The Alliance of Pro-Life Students held their Celebration & Fundraiser event on Thursday 20th October, with a stirring and emotional endorsement of their work by Dr Peter Saunders, CEO of the Christian Medical Fellowship and Campaign Director of Care Not Killing. The event also included the launch of the Alliance of Pro-Life Students Handbook.
Niall O Coinleáin, Chairman of the Alliance of Pro-Life Students, said: "This event is a pivotal moment for the student pro-life movement. The Alliance of Pro-Life Students has a track record of success over its four-year history. This Handbook is the distillation of all of our experience, and the knowledge of 40 student pro-life leaders, in one booklet. The Handbook will enable student pro-life leaders to follow tried-and-tested best practice on their campuses to be more effective in spreading the pro-life message on campuses."
Dr Peter Saunders, CEO of the Christian Medical Fellowship and Campaign Director of Care Not Killing, delivered a heartfelt Keynote Speech. First he gave an overview of the current status of the pro-life movement in Britain. Then he called attendees to courageously stand for life, and to support the vital work of the Alliance of Pro-Life Students. He said: "The battle will not be easy but we need to stand together and fight it. And we need to equip the next generation of pro-life soldiers to take the baton from us. That is why the work of the Alliance of Pro-Life Students is so important. I urge you to support them."
The mission of the Alliance of Pro-Life Students is to build, support and connect pro-life student societies on campus.
