OSFL triumphs at ‘Pro-Life Student Society of the Year’ award

by Oxford Students for Life

Cava all round at Oxford Students for Life: on Saturday night, we were named ‘Pro-Life Student Society of the Year’ by the Alliance of Pro-Life Students (APS), at their big Annual General Meeting in London.

In their comments, the APS judges congratulated us on our range of events, especially last term’s debate (available to watch here). They even gave an honourable mention to this blog.

We are especially pleased because we were up against strong competition: the cup could just as easily have gone to, say, Cardiff University Students for Life, who have put on a series of high-quality talks and taken the Project Truth information campaign onto the streets of the city; or to the innovative Edinburgh Life Society, who do everything from the highly successful ‘Life chats’ discussion series to pro-life pub crawls.

Looking around the AGM, you could not doubt that the student pro-life movement is growing fast. That has a lot to do with the excellent and frankly Herculean work of APS themselves. Pro-life societies are springing up across the country; just last week, we heard about a new one being registered at one of Britain’s biggest universities. We will be doing our best to hang onto the Society of the Year cup, of course; but you suspect the competition is about to get quite a bit more intense.
