Wicked Bill nears final stage

The Third Reading of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology (HFE) Bill will take place on Wednesday 22 October. As well as the horrendous elements of the Bill itself, (summary here) a number of amendments have been tabled for debate and voting at the report stage (earlier in the same day).

SPUC have a list of actions that you can take and in addition to these, we must pray hard at this time.

The Rosary Crusade of Reparation this coming Saturday is very timely - the intention is for the downfall of this bill. There is also the 1000 Crosses for Life procession the following Saturday, 18 October.

For a flavour of the kinds of arguments used in favour of the HFE Bill, see my post from last May on the second reading: Massive majority for monster creation bill.
