Archbishop Cushley will lead a Rosary at Sacred Heart Church, Lauriston Street, Edinburgh, at 10am this Saturday (22 April) to pray for unborn children, their mothers and all pro-life intentions.

You can register here or simply turn up on the morning. All welcome.

It takes place ahead of the the annual Pro-Life Chain in nearby Lothian Road at 11am, which is organised by SPUC (Society for the Protection of Unborn Children).

On Saturday 13 May, March for Life UK hosts a Rethink Abortion Day at Turnbull Hall Catholic Chaplaincy, 15 Southpark Terrace, Glasgow.

The event consists of a series of interactive sessions designed to help people have more meaningful conversations on abortion and equipping them to deal with real life scenarios.

Sessions will be run by a variety of top speakers on this issue and will include input from Bishop John Keenan and Rachel Mackenzie from the post-abortion ministry Rachel's Vineyard. The day begins with Mass at 9am. Register here.

Paul Atkin from the Archdiocesan Pro-Life Office said: “Catholic teaching emphasizes the importance of compassion and respect for the dignity of every human person.

"That includes those who may be considering or who have had an abortion.

"By engaging in compassionate and respectful dialogue with others we can provide support and offer alternatives that affirm the value of human life.

"This approach can help to promote a culture of life and foster greater understanding and dialogue between people of different beliefs and opinions on this sensitive issue."
