· About 20 university students from Randall Campus of McNeese State, Louisiana, will be at Saint Stephen Martyr Jan 18-21. Contact: Julie Cilano Julie@gwcatholic
· Also a group of 15 is coming from Scotland. They will arrive on January 16th and will remain with us until January 22nd. Their coordinator is Emmet Dooley. All are college students from Glasgow University and Strathclyde University, both of which have banned these students from forming a official pro life club or society. They work for SPUC (Society for the Protection of Unborn Children) which celebrated its 50th anniversary this year making it the oldest pro life organization in the World. One is studying to be a doctor and after he asked his tutor for permission to travel to Washington, a long lecture tried to block him going and did a write up opposing his attendance! They also have a staff from London and Katie Ascough who is a wee pro life celebrity. She was student president at the University City Dublin, and was impeached as she would not break the law of the land and advertise graphic abortion information in the student magazine under advice from the university lawyer.
