Olympic torch pro-life street campaign
Editor’s note. The following is taken from a longer blog written by John Smeaton, executive director of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC). As you can see, the front cover of the brochure reads, “70.”
“70 Days: the time it takes for the Olympic Torch to travel from Land’s End to the Olympic Stadium.
“70 Days: during the same time over 40,000 unborn babies are killed by abortion in Britain.
“Every New Life is more precious than Gold.”
Be an Olympics torch bearer for unborn children
SPUC evangelicals are leading an important pro-life outreach in major cities through which the Olympic torch will travel. Reverend Arthur Wood, a member of the SPUC evangelicals committee, has put together a programme to take the pro-life message to the heart of the Olympic games and into the hearts of the British public.
Arthur will be leading an act of pro-life witness in several towns and cities around the country. Pro-lifers will be handing out a specially designed leaflet and holding Olympic torch placards.
