Ask Your MP To Support A New Amendment to Help Stop Forced Abortion In Xinjiang, China
There is extensive evidence that many women in the Uyghur Muslim community in Xinjiang, China are being subjected to forced abortions.  Lord Alton is currently championing a new amendment to the trade bill, to help put international pressure on the Chinese communist party to stop this. See this week’s newsletter for more.

Finally, please pray for the repose of the soul of Lisa Moran, Carmel Tutt’s cousin, who has recently died following several months of illness, aged 41. We pray for her partner, her son and for all her family that they may be given comfort at this sad time. May she rest in Christ’s peace.

Take care and stay safe.
