Pledge a prayer for the millions of lives lost to abortion since 1967 – Voice of the Family

The first pro-life campaigning organisation in the world, the UK’s Society for the Protection of Unborn Children, is inviting everyone to join a worldwide prayer campaign to end abortion. Since 1967, SPUC has been instrumental in building the international pro-life movement to relentlessly counter the horrendous evil of abortion which has claimed over 10 million innocent lives in Britain alone. SPUC recognises that the battle to end abortion is ultimately spiritual and only winnable by prayer and conversion. At Voice of the Family, we are very pleased to spread the word about this initiative and publish SPUC’s call to prayer here in full:

Ten million lives have been lost to abortion in England, Wales and Scotland since the passing of the Abortion Act in 1967. Each one of these precious lives was an individual person robbed of their life. While nothing can make amends for this loss, we can still, today, take action to remember those lives, and in so doing, prevent future deaths. 

The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) has launched a National Prayer Campaign in collaboration with the Knights of St Columba, setting a target of ten million prayers — ten million prayers for ten million lives lost to abortion. 

That is ten million people who never had the chance to live their lives, enjoy the world, flourish and have children of their own. Were it not for abortion, many of these people would have been known to us — we might have called them friend, even spouse. These lives mattered. They still do.

We ask all pro-lifers, Catholics, and all people of faith to participate in this campaign of prayer and commemoration. It began on 27 October 2022, marking the 55th anniversary of the Abortion Act in 1967, and it concludes on 27 April, this year, the date when the Abortion Act came into effect.
