Our Statement Following Today’s Developments…
by Oxford Students for Life
The debate will be going ahead, but not at Christ Church tomorrow because of security issues due to the planned protest.
We are heartened by the support throughout the University for our right to free expression. Sadly, there are some extreme voices who don’t believe that Oxford should welcome open debate. We will continue to campaign and to encourage an amicable conversation on life issues. We’d like to reiterate our offer to WomCam to co-host a debate next term.
Also, we are looking for an alternate venue to host our debate. We have until four o’clock tomorrow to arrange an alternate venue, otherwise our event will have to be postponed. Please join our new Facebook Event and spread the word!
