Betty Gibson

European Life Network ELN, reports the sad loss of Mrs Betty Gibson (pictured), who died on Tuesday August 4th after a short illness. Betty led the pro-life battle in Northern Ireland for the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) for nearly thirty years.

SPUC National Director John Smeaton paid the following tribute to Betty in one of his BLOG posts;

She (Betty) was the dearest friend that the unborn in Ireland could have - deeply loved by Albert her husband, her children and her grandchildren. She was my own dear friend and a friend to countless others, including many who are alive today and who never knew her. On behalf of SPUC's National Council and SPUC's executive committee in Northern Ireland, I send love and deepest sympathy to Albert Gibson and to all his family. May she rest in peace!

The pro-life movement in Northern Ireland has lost a truly courageous advocate for the unborn.
