Press Release

Monday, 12 May 2008 - The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) today delivered a 45,400-signature petition to parliament opposing the British government's Human Fertilisation and Embryology bill. The petition says: " ... that the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill (2007) proposes to endorse the creation of human-animal hybrid embryos in the laboratory; the widening of the scope for experiments on human embryos, and the creation of human embryos for other purposes without regard for the welfare and status of such embryos.

"The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons vote against the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill, and urge the Government to change its policy towards endorsing the creation of human-animal hybrid embryos in the laboratory; the widening of the scope for experiments on human embryos, and the creation of human embryos for other purposes without regard for the welfare and status of such embryos."

We have an active SPUC group in our church and many parishoners signed this petition.
