The dangerous cult has bought a huge grade II listed building, Pitmaston House, which is estimated to be worth at least £4.25 million. The former insurance building was listed after a local campaign managed to save the building from developers but now it looks set to turn into a base to recruit people from the local area and to fulfil the claims of it's leader, David Miscavige, that the Church is expanding. The Church of Scientology is no stranger to Moseley, before it opened it's offices in Birmingham city centre, it ran a shop on the Highstreet during the 1970s/80s.

Message of Support on Abortion Rights .

03-04-2008 13:33

Message of support.
Abortion is criminalised in Ireland and therefore many Irish women use UK
services. This is not spoken of a lot because we are at a stage where 16 years
after the 'X' case , not one government has introduced abortion law.
Pro-life stand in the streets with images of eviscerated infants and argument is
reduced to: -Abortion is always wrong- which means we do not talk about the issues
of human rights, post-abortion continuity of care, medical abortion or
abortion by choice. It does not exist.
