STUDENTS at Cambridge, I am told, discovered that the National Union of Students had affiliated itself to the National Abortion Campaign, which advocates abortion at any time up to birth.
Feeling that something should be done about this situation, they held a meeting at the Catholic Chaplaincy, at which it was decided to put forward a candidate at the next election of NUS representatives, Ideally, they needed a female medical student with some ability at public speaking; in fact, they already had one in the Chaplaincy choir: Jacoby Gregory, a third-year student at Christ's College (formerly of Holy Trinity Convent, Bromley).
So, in addition to her lectures, practicals and the pharmacology project that keeps her at Addenbrooke's Hospital late into the night, Jacoby took on the task of designing posters and handbills, cycling to all the Cambridge colleges to distribute them, writing and delivering speeches and making known the Pro-Life point of view at every opportunity.
Came the day of the election: Jacoby Gregory was elected one of the eight NUS representatives for Cambridge.
At Easter she will be at the National Conference at Blackpool. She is the only NUS representative, ever, anywhere in the country, to be elected on a Pro-Life ticket, and we congratulate her most heartily!
