Pro-life groups banned by Student Unions at two Scottish Universities

January 2019

Pro-life groups at universities in Glasgow and Aberdeen have been banned from affiliating with the Student Unions, denying them access to facilities and resources available to other groups.

Aberdeen University Students’ Association (AUSA) says it has a pro-abortion policy and will not offer ‘funding, facilitation or platform’ to the Aberdeen Life Ethics Society.

Glasgow Students for Life applied to become a registered society, but were turned down by the Students’ Representative Council (SRC).

The decision means the pro-life group will be denied funding, and barred from using meeting rooms, advertising events, and even having a stall at the Freshers’ Fair.
