The Big Church Day Out has again said "NO" to pro-life exhibitors "despite covering other life issues such as poverty, human trafficking and the environment."
Andy Stephenson from Abort67 has a response:
I have been told more than once by the BigChurchDayOut (BCDO) team that our organisation, and it seems the issue of abortion, "doesn't fit" their event. Despite tackling important concerns like people trafficking, poverty and the usual line up of issues, the unborn child is not included in the family environment of the BCDO. I asked organiser Tim Jupp if he would allow other pro-life groups and was informed that it would be "unlikely".HT: JillStanek
After being refused a table for leaflets and foetal models (no banners) I have informed Tim that we will be taking our banners outside the event to reach those attending. I believe abortion to be an important issue that the Church needs to wake up to.
