Blood-Soaked Protest at Dundee Anti-Abortion Lecture


There was a blood-splattered protest at Dundee University on Tuesday 24th March 2015 when the Dundee Abortion Rights group protested against an anti-abortion lecture.

The women staged a ‘die-in’ outside the university’s Dalhousie building, wearing fake-blood-soaked clothes and holding placards supporting abortion rights in protest against a lecture hosted by Dundee University Life Society.


Dr Mahesh Perera, a Consultant Gynaecologist and Obstetrician with Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS, was giving a lecture to the Life society on ‘How to be a Pro-life Obstetrician in the NHS today’.

A spokeswoman for Dundee Abortion Rights said: ‘Pro-life means anti-abortion. Women in the UK have the legal right to an abortion, and anti-abortion obstetricians put that right at risk. Abortion should be a woman’s personal decision and medical personnel should support that decision.’
