Defend Pro-Life Vigils, Or Let Babies Die?


The idea of their buffer zones is to stop pro-lifers offering help to pregnant women outside abortion 'clinics'. Whilst no doubt some of the people supporting the idea of buffer zones may be well meaning, we can be sure they know very little about what actually takes place at our vigils. The idea that the two pro-lifers in the photo above, praying opposite Whitfield Street abortion centre in London, are there to intimidate anybody, is, of course, preposterous.

Please watch the following video, of one young mother who desperately needed help to keep her children, and was able to receive that assistance, because there were no buffer zones; https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCw-CqRb1UIuD8-me5XQXxg

Please then contact your MP and ask them not to support moves to hinder caring, pro-life vigils. You may, of course, send them the link to the video to back up your arguments. You can find your MP's contact details here: http://www.parliament.uk/get-involved/contact-your-mp/

Then please do see SPUC's video of another mother helped by Good Counsel, and sign their petition;

Then please invite all of your friends and family to this 'event' on Facebook; https://www.facebook.com/events/1519476211704176/. All of this should take you less than 15 minutes.

Nothing To Do With GK Chesterton?


As I’m sure you’re aware, the annual GK Chesterton walking pilgrimage stops on it’s gruelling 27 mile, one day walk, to pray outside an abortion ‘clinic’ Ealing. The Good Counsel Network organise a daily prayer vigil there, and many lives have been saved through their peaceful, public, pro-life witness. Many of the mothers who change their minds and keep their babies do so because The Good Counsel Network offers them practical help and support.

Here you can see a short video featuring one of these mothers:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCw-CqRb1UIuD8-me5XQXxg

You could think that this video has nothing to do with GK Chesterton, but as the mother says in the video, she met Rachel outside the ‘clinic’.  Not only has Rachel been on the GK Chesterton pilgrimage, but she in fact met us outside the said ‘clinic’ and walked the rest of the way to GK Chesterton’s grave and prayed there. During the mother’s pregnancy, there were a number of health concerns for which a number of us prayed to Chesterton, and all was fine, and then to cap it all, twins were born on a date very strongly connected with Chesterton.

Please do watch the short video, and consider coming on the Chesterton pilgrimage and to a pro-life vigil, especially as there are attempt afoot to ban such life-saving initiatives with buffer zones.
