Petition: 'Stop undermining marriage'

If you haven't yet complained about the same-sex marriage bill, now would be a good time.

The Lords will debate the bill on Monday, next Wednesday, and finally on Monday,July 15. MPs are likely to consider the Lords' amendments to the bill on July 16 or 17. SPUC is asking people to write to or e-mail Lords and their MP, asking them to stop efforts to undermine marriage.

It's been a right old week for pro-lifers. 

Four politicians in the ruling Fine Gael Party have reportedly been sacked from the party and told to clear their offices after opposing a bill to ease abortion law in Ireland.

Pro-abortion campaigners chanted "Hail Satan" to drown out pro-life demonstrators singing Amazing Grace at the Texas State Capitol.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue said it would be unfair to say that all pro-abortion supporters would support giving glory to Satan. "Among hardcore activists, though, there are no doubt more than just a few who feel comfortable invoking Satan's name on behalf of their cause."

 In Germany, six 11 and 12-year-old students fainted during a graphic sex education lesson and had to be taken to hospital.

And SPUC is asking for signatures on a petition opposing pornography lessons in school. They are proposed by the Sex Education Forum, which advises the Government. The SEF explains: "The rationale is that if young people choose to look at pornography or if they come across it by accident, they would know how to interpret it."

It's like giving illicit drugs to young children so they'll know how to say no when they're older.
