HFE Bill

Last night a few of us went down to Portsmouth Cathedral to listen to Lord Alton and others speak about the atrocities of abortion and embryonic research.

It was billed as a lecture on Human Animal Hybrids but actually turned out to be a series of talks on how to campaign against the Bill. I was slightly disappointed that it wasn't what I expected it to be but was very pleased with what was said.

There are some postcards advertising Passion for Life to be sent to MPs. We asked for a box load and are asking students to take them out to parishes and places where they carry out their pastoral placements, we are also giving them to visiting priests to take to their parishes. If you see any of these postcards take a handful, send one yourself and hand them out to people. We must do anything we can to stop this Bill going through.

Don't forget to petition the Prime Minister to ask him to allow MPs to vote by conscience and write to MPs asking them to vote against the Bill.

Orthfully Catholic would like to thank Bishop Crispian Hollis, for hosting this fantastic evening, its good to see our Bishops actively supporting these issues.

There's a petition to PM Gordon Brown at: Petition

PLEASE do sign onto it. If England allows the HFE Bill to pass with all its provisions then we will become the maddest nation in history. What a difference half a millenia makes!
