Through the 'Round Church Talks' we aim to provide a setting in which sceptics, agnostics, and believers can examine and explore Christian belief, its implications and its alternatives in the 21st century. Our goal is to give people the chance to reflect on the ‘big picture’ questions of life in a context which allows for robust, honest, critical and courteous discussion.
Thursday 27 March, 5.45 - 7pm
Abortion on Demand: A Christian Response
Dr. Peter Saunders
Round Church, Bridge Street, CB2 1UB
Doors open at 5.15pm for light refreshments
£2 suggested donation
There is no need to book in advance
With doctors authorising abortions for women they have not seen, documented evidence of sex-selective abortion and 98% of abortions carried out on mental health grounds, it appears that abortion is now available on demand in Britain in practice despite what was intended to be a restrictive law. How did this situation evolve? What is a compassionate and just Christian response?
Peter Saunders is a former general surgeon, now CEO of Christian Medical Fellowship, an organisation with 4,000 doctors and 1,000 medical students as members. He is a frequent contributor to national debates on issues at the interface of Christianity and medicine.
