Pro-life students at Cardiff University have been left feeling pushed out after the Students’ Union formally adopted a pro-abortion position. The Students’ Union voted in favour of the policy at its annual meeting last week. University Chaplain, Revd Fr Jones, said those opposed to abortion would find it more difficult to express ‘unacceptable opinions’ on campus. The Students’ Union passed the motion entitled: “Adopt an official pro-choice stance”. It said that societies must not “participate in activities against SU policy”. During the debate the pro-life position was dismissed as “equivalent to racism”. In an open letter the University Chaplain argued that many pro-life students would now feel uneasy participating in student groups for fear of being marginalised. Revd Fr Jones expressed concerns for religious liberty and freedom of conscience, adding that the policy of the Students’ Union sought to silence “all shades of opinion but its own”.
