    The Christian Institute

    Abortion statistics released by NHS Scotland in May show that Scottish abor-tion numbers hit a ten-year high in 2018.

    The figures show that there were 13,286 abortions in 2018, an increase of 843 from 2017 when there were 12,443 abortions. Repeat abortions and abortions for women in poorer areas are twice as high as those from more advantaged areas.

  • No to ‘no platforming’

    The Christian Institute

    The Oxford Union voted in May to oppose the ‘no platforming’ of controversial speak-ers at in-house debates.

    Other universities have banned people including Peter Hitchens, Germaine Greer, Linda Bellow, and Jordan Peterson. In 2018 the University of Bristol began officially ban-ning speakers who challenged transgender ideology.
