Youth Survey: Please inform your young people that, ahead of next October 2018’s Synod on Youth, Pope Francis has asked the young people of each country to tell him about their hopes and fears for the future, including the future of the Catholic Church. To this end, Catholic Youth Service Scotland has created an online survey to be distributed to schools and parishes across the country. It takes 10-15 minutes to complete. It’s open to anybody aged 11 - 35. There is also a chance to win £100 of Amazon vouchers. The deadline for completion is 30 June 2017. The online link is: http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/CYSSYS/.

British Medical Association: The British Medical Association (BMA) is holding its Annual Representative Meeting (ARM) on the 25-29 June and, once again, certain factions within the BMA are trying to force the organisation to support the total decriminalisation of abortion. This will mean that the abortion limit is increased to at least 7 months and, if the proponents of decriminalisation get their way, will mean that abortion is made legal throughout all nine months of pregnancy for any reason whatsoever. This will also make sex-selective abortion legal i.e. it would be perfectly lawful to kill unborn girls for the crime of being girls.
