Catholics MUST Be Pro-Life – Action!

This thread is dedicated to sharing news about pro-life issues. 

Where possible, we suggest that bloggers make and respond to calls to action in defence of the unborn child – whether that entails emailing MPs or supporting various vigils etc.  

Try not to simply post a link to news – publish an extract and/or make a suggestion about possible action, that will encourage readers to click your  link. 

Among all the crimes which can be committed against life, procured abortion has characteristics making it particularly serious and deplorable. The Second Vatican Council defines abortion, together with infanticide, as an “unspeakable crime”.54

But today, in many people’s consciences, the perception of its gravity has become progressively obscured. The acceptance of abortion in the popular mind, in behaviour and even in law itself, is a telling sign of an extremely dangerous crisis of the moral sense, which is becoming more and more incapable of distinguishing between good and evil, even when the fundamental right to life is at stake. Given such a grave situation, we need now more than ever to have the courage to look the truth in the eye and to call things by their proper name, without yielding to convenient compromises or to the temptation of self-deception. In this regard the reproach of the Prophet is extremely straightforward: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness” (Is 5:20). Especially in the case of abortion there is a widespread use of ambiguous terminology, such as “interruption of pregnancy”, which tends to hide abortion’s true nature and to attenuate its seriousness in public opinion. Perhaps this linguistic phenomenon is itself a symptom of an uneasiness of conscience. But no word has the power to change the reality of things: procured abortion is the deliberate and direct killing, by whatever means it is carried out, of a human being in the initial phase of his or her existence, extending from conception to birth.

The moral gravity of procured abortion is apparent in all its truth if we recognize that we are dealing with murder... Pope John Paul II: Evangelium Vitae –  on the Value and Inviolability, of Human Life #58  [Emphasis added]

      I was prepared to comment on the Press & Journal blog under the article, but it is only possible to sign in with Facebook, Twitter etc. so that rules me out.

      I did, however, forward the report to a young student at the University of Aberdeen with whom I’m in contact, so that she is, at least, aware of the situation. It shows the demonic nature of the pro-abortionists that they are even agitating against posters in a Catholic Chaplaincy that is off campus. Incredible.

  1. Please check how YOUR M P voted …in Luton South my …supposedly devout Christian MP Gavin Shuker voted For as did his Humanist counterpart in Luton North K..Hopkins
    In the coming weeks we have to ensure a huge amount of Pro Life mail reaches them ……….what a disgrace

    • Wendy read the above article yesterday and really there is only one word to describe it and that is Demonic. Even if you are of no Faith whatsoever it was Filthy to the core . To me a lot of this goes back to so called Celebrities like Lena Dungham who said that she wished she had had an Abortion. Where their obscene leaders March their Minnions will follow. Also in the same article was the link to the Witches wanting to burn down an Argentine Cathedral and only one young man tried to defend it until the Police arrived. That loads of Media stood by just taking pictures of him being assaulted by these Vampires spoke volumes of the sign of the times. Not ONE of them went to his assistance.

  2. ——————-
    Brian Kerwin seems to be on a mission against a woman’s right to choose.
    In his first letter ‘Foetus is part of God’s Programme’ he clumsily attempts to speak on behalf of a foetus conveying its thoughts and feelings.
    In his latest letter ‘Abortion Effect on Birth Rate’ he’s blaming women who have had abortions for what he describes as the ‘catastrophic’ fall in birth rate on the Isle of Man.
    Perhaps he should research the unsustainable effect of rapid population growth worldwide on our earth’s finite resources.
    Instead of blundering into issues he doesn’t understand he should be on his knees praying for the souls of the 800 babies and toddlers recently discovered in unmarked graves (ie tossed into disused septic tanks) at a Catholic Mother and Babies’ home in Tuam, Republic of Ireland.
    After giving birth to these ‘illegitimate’ babies their mothers were forced to leave them behind, not knowing what their fate would be.
    This particular home operated for 30 years, only closing in 1956 and forensic tests are showing that a large percentage of these deaths occurred in the 1950s.
    There have been similar discoveries at other Catholic Mother and Baby Homes and religious zealots should have no say whatsoever in the abortion issue.
    Name and address supplied

    This vile anon letter appeared in The Isle of Man. examiner

    • Seems you went all Protestant there Wendy and changed your tune . These babies were not as you say Tossed into a Septic Tank go back and read the real Truth and that’s even out of The Gaurdian. Also Wendy people in Glass Houses really shouldn’t throw stones if you think none of that happened in Scotland or in The U.K . ask some of your elders . Peter Mullen also wrote The Magdalena Sisters . About how unmarried mothers had been treated terribly in Ireland. Our own Asylums and if your from Scotland there was one near you Wendy . We’re full of Old Ladies or Old Spinsters many years ago . Their mental illness was falling Pregnant whilst being unmarried,what happened to their Babies they were taken from them . Now I hope that these children found a good home I do not know. What I do know is that many of the Mothers became Institutionalised and were in those Asylums all of their life’s. Also as regards just London. During the film The Krays Violet Kray makes a statement that if they ever drain the Lake on Hampstead Heath all that they would find would be dead babies. Women who became Pregnant by someone else whilst their Husbands were overseas in The Forces had more ways than Abortion to get rid of the child. As I say Wendy People In Glass Houses Should not Throw Stones .

      • FOOF,

        I can’t make head nor tail of either of your replies to Wendy but allow me to disabuse you of the notion that Wendy would “go all Protestant” on us – Wendy has more of a “Catholic sense” than many baptised Catholics I could name, not least Papa Francis.

        She is two thousand percent committed to defending the unborn child and I’ve never read anything remotely “anti-Catholic” from her – ever. Quite the reverse.

        I suspect you hadn’t realised that her post at 3.22pm today was actually a letter which she had copied and pasted – she describes it as “vile” at the end of her post.

        Thank you for your apology to her – I know that she will accept it graciously, but do, please avoid any kind of personal remarks on this blog, whether to Wendy or anyone else. If you check our house rules, that is one of the absolute rules that must not be broken. I usually delete such comments, but am leaving yours this time, not least because of the apology you so generously offered.

        Just be careful from now on, else you’ll take Jeff’s place on the naughty step 😀

      • No problems there Faith Of Our Fathers……I can see where the problem came from …my names at the top ..we just have to keep on fighting for these tiny lives regardless of our colour ,creed ,Faith the more united we are the more we will achieve ,with one BIG voice ……thank you

  3. This is an update on the recent posts on the General Discussion thread, regarding Jeff (Protestant reader) who had texted me to berate the SNP MPs, all 56 of them, because they abstained on voting on the decriminalisation of abortion bill in the Westminster Parliament.

    Another reader emailed to say that the SNP MPs would have abstained because they are not allowed to vote on English matters. Abortion is a devolved matter for the Scottish Parliament (God help us all). Jeff, therefore, was placed on the naughty step.

    However, Jeff, it turns out, has been right all along – the SNP MPS ARE permitted to vote on English matters if the bill is a Private Member’s Bill which was the case with the decriminalisation of abortion bill.

    So, yes, Jeff is right to be calling the alleged Catholics to account for their negligence in this matter. How these people can sleep at night, is beyond me.

  4. I’ve noticed that almost everyone on this thread is missing an avatar – the small picture you are free to place beside your name. I would urge everyone to organise an avatar asap, as it makes it easier to pick out your comments in the thread, and to see you on the sidebar.

    Wendy, an obvious picture for YOU to use might be something like this…

    • If you would like to do it for me Patricia please do its a very lovely picture ..Iam so ignorant on a lot of things computer ..sadly doing an Avatar is one of them ..help

      • Wendy,

        It’s a while since I’ve done this, but I think it would come back to me.

        You would need to email me your log in details. That is usually either your email address or your username (Wendy Walker) and your password. You can always change your password later if you wish, I could tell you how to do that, but be assured I never use passwords without permission – Theresa Rose will tell you! I had to help her with her avatar about a dozen times and each time she had to resend her password – I couldn’t remember it! I don’t make a note of them and only use them for the purpose permitted. Note, though, that the avatar will only work if you log in with the same email address. The picture is attached to that email.

        I’ll await your log in details and do my best to create an avatar for you. My pleasure.

    • Signed.

      I see this petition has been placed here twice. That’s fine, but I suggest we needn’t record “signed” as I have just done, since that uses up space and really we expect everyone to sign such petitions, so don’t follow my bad example 😀

      • No Patricia it is a separate one this one the newer is to J Hunt …it is confusing with so many Petitions I know please everyone sign and see how your MP voted as well

    • That’s disgraceful. If that bill goes through it means abortion up to birth, how shocking is that. I can’t understand those cowardly MPS, and it’s no argument to say it won’t go through anyway – that’s exactly what people thought in 1967 and look what happened.

  5. Edinburgh, Scotland
    MARCH 18, 2017

    “We have over 100 people supporting the vigil in Edinburgh,” said one of the 40 Days for Life team members.

    “It’s a true international effort,” she said, “with participants from Scotland, England, Poland, United States, Italy, France, Hungary, Argentina, Nigeria, India and Sri Lanka.”

    Archbishop Leo Cushley of the archdiocese of St. Andrews and Edinburgh joined the vigil recently. The archbishop said he was delighted to set aside time to pray on a bright, sunny morning.

    “The reaction from the public has been hearteningly positive, the weather has been great and the number of people coming to pray each day is fantastic,” said Patricia, the local 40 Days for Life coordinator.

    “It gives us great spiritual encouragement to know that Archbishop Cushley is publically backing our peaceful, prayerful efforts to end abortion, to help build a culture of life and to establish a civilisation of love that supports both mothers and their unborn children,” she said.

  6. It in unbelievable that Catholic Politicians who vote for “The right for women to choose”, can have the audacity to call themselves Catholics. It galls me that such people are allowed to receive the Blessed Sacrament in some diocese in the world; I am referring particularly to American politicians, like Cain, and Pelosi.  Yet, there are gleams of light that shine through the darkened skies. The other day, Marie Caufield, MP for Lewes, strongly spoke out in the defence of the unborn. I felt compelled, even though I am not a constituent, to thank her from the bottom of my heart for her brave and stately attack against another hateful left-wing abortion Bill.
    Another most distressing event is how the Vatican is appearing to be so non pro-life. For instance Pope Francis’ has removed all of the pro-life members from the The Pontifical Academy for Life. He has invited guest to the Vatican who are clearly pro- abortion and population controllers. Also allowing priests to give absolution for the heinous crime of abortion has given rise to much critism.
    I am looking forward to the March for Life in Birmingham, during the month of May.

  7. Dear Gildaswiseman
    Thank you for the very thought provoking post above ..well said …We only have to look at “””Catholic “”Melissa Gates ….and Cherie and the Abominable Tony also allowed to remain in the Catholic Church it is so sad and very frightening …….as is Pope Francis

  8. For such a time

    Diana Johnson’s Ten-Minute Bill to decriminalize abortion is due for its second reading on Friday, March 24th. It is admittedly unlikely to get through, but without doubt its passing last week will have been taken as a major sign of encouragement by so called ‘pro-choicers’, already pushing for termination to be made legal up to birth, and we can soon expect the introduction of a Bill which, unless vigorously opposed, stands every likelihood of being adopted.

    This is a move to make legal the unrestrained slaughter of the innocent. It is worship given to Moloch.

    For such a time as this

    In ancient Persia a young Jewish girl, Esther, became the wife of the king, Ahasuerus. Then, as now, the Jews became target for persecution and Haman, the King’s first Minister, devised a plot to have them all killed, with the greater part of their wealth and possessions transferred to himself. This was a man who thought big!

    Knowing she must intercede, but fearful of the consequences, Esther asked the entire Jewish community to fast and pray on her behalf for three days and three nights. Only after that Esther went to the king, and her request that he and Haman come to a banquet prepared by herself in the king’s honour was heard. And there Esther interceded for her people, with the result that they were saved, and Haman himself executed. It is this mighty deliverance that the Jews still celebrate today in the feast of Purim.

    Battle in the heavens

    So today VfJUK is asking people, starting tomorrow, to pray and fast for the three days before the second reading. How you do this is entirely up to you, but we believe this is a spiritual battle and needs, first and foremost, to be combatted in prayer.

    The Lord bless and keep you as you pray for deliverance of the unborn

    Dear WENDY,

    This summer we will be hosting a 40 Days for Life conference in central London, United Kingdom, and you are invited to attend.

    The weekend will start with a dinner on Friday 7 July. The keynote speaker will be Dr Haywood Robinson, a former abortionist and now pro-life advocate.

    On Saturday 8 July, we are hosting a day-long conference for campaign leaders, team members and keen pro-lifers. The conference will include training, networking opportunities, leadership panels and lunch.

    During the training you will learn…
    A powerful conversion story and personal testimony from a former abortionist, Dr Haywood Robinson, who now works as a doctor protecting human life.
    Practical strategies to help women in unexpected pregnancies choose life … and provide healing for women (and men) harmed by abortion.
    How God uses ordinary people to change hearts and minds, save lives and transform communities.
    Why after decades of legalised abortion, the pro-life movement is on the brink of a massive breakthrough.
    In order to register for the conference on Saturday, please visit:
    https://40daysforlife.com/conference

    This is the third year we have held a London conference. We held a similar event in Florida last summer, and attendees were greatly encouraged by the symposium there. We received reports that the symposium helped leaders strengthen their campaigns, cover more hours and recruit more volunteers. I hope you are able to join us on July 7-8!

    Please feel free to ask any questions. We hope to see you in July!

    Warmest regards and prayers,

    40 Days for Life

    Dear WENDY,

    During a 40 Days for Life campaign, many people read the 40 Days for Life book — 40 chapters including stories of babies saved, abortion workers who had a conversion … and a scripture and prayer for every chapter.

    But as we headed into the largest spring 40 Days for Life campaign ever in more than 340 cities … we sold out of the book!

    After a rushed third printing of the book, we are excited to release the EXPANDED EDITION with new BONUS chapters and …

    … a new ending!

    Get the new expanded edition of the Amazon top-rated Christian book at:

    https://40daysforlife.com/book

    In this new expanded edition you will learn:
    The moving, behind-the-scenes inspiration for 40 Days for Life
    The never-before-told story of how the closed abortion facility where the campaign began became the headquarters of 40 Days for Life
    The inspiring story of two former abortion doctors now offering life in a closed Planned Parenthood building
    The revelation after entering the closed Planned Parenthood abortion facility that impacts YOU
    Order your book today!

    “40 Days for Life is one of the most impressive initiatives launch since Roe vs. Wade. It’s a powerful combination of prayer and persuasion aimed above all at serving women. The forty stories told here are stories of America at its best.”

    — George Weigel, author, biographer of St. John Paul II

    “This beautiful book will touch your heart and challenge you. There is no movement more important, and 40 Days for Life is leading the fight — spiritually and practically — in the trenches every day. This book will help you see how you can take part in saving a life.”

    — Lila Rose, President, Live Action
    “If you’re growing weary over the increasing level of disrespect of the most innocent among us, open this book, read these encouraging stories of lives saved and redeemed, and help let the light out!”

    — Jim Daly, President, Focus on the Family

    “The fruits of 40 Days for Life are invaluable to our cause. Every child saved, abortion-minded mother changed, and abortion industry employee converted becomes a shining witness to life, another foot soldier to building a culture of life in our nation.”

    — Marjorie Dannenfelser, Susan B. Anthony List

    Read the full list of endorsements here.

    As we enter the second half of this campaign, I encourage you to not just read about 40 Days for Life — be part of it. God may use you as His instrument to save a life from abortion.

    Right now there are more than 340 cities where you can do just that!

    San Luis Obispo, California

    “We had another save!” said Kirt in San Luis Obispo.

    “We were able to walk a young couple down to local pregnancy center,” he said, “and even though closed, the opportunity to consider another option and slow down the process was just what this couple needed.”

    They drove away, smiling, thumbs up and saying, “I’m not going to have an abortion!”

    “Praise God!” Kirt said.

    Edinburgh, Scotland

    This is a worldwide campaign … and the 40 Days for Life team in Edinburgh got a firsthand example of that when the pastor of the Edinburgh Indian Christian Community of St. Anthony prayed at the vigil with several members of his church.

    The group prayed in five languages — English, Polish, Italian, Tamil and Malayalam. With some of the opposition the Scottish vigils have seen during this campaign, it was a sure sign of unity among Christ’s people!

    Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgressions of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy. He will again have compassion on us; and will subdue our iniquities.
    —Micah 7:18-19

    Heavenly Father, eternal, changeless, and faithful Lord, we recognize that we are in need of forgiveness as a nation, for turning our hearts away from you. Hear our prayer of repentance Lord and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. We praise you for your tender mercies and your compassion that never fails. Lord, it is only by Your grace that we can live lives that are just, and merciful.

    Dear wendy, please take a minute to write to your MP in support of Life.

    Write to your MP to defend the ‘Tampon Tax’ grant that has been awarded to Life.

    Life has been blasted in the press for receiving funding to help vulnerable, pregnant homeless women in West London.
    Click here to email your MP
    I am writing to you about a very real threat to the future of the prolife movement in the UK. Suddenly the eyes of the world are on Life. Why?

    Because the Government has made a significant grant to Life for our new West London Hub initiative. Some journalists and women’s groups don’t like it. They are trying to get the grant withdrawn by creating a media storm and lobbying Members of Parliament. We have met every aspect of the criteria for the Tampon Tax funding we have been awarded. The protests are simply because we are prolife.

    We are fighting not just for Life itself, but for the future of the prolife movement in the UK. If this grant is withdrawn on the basis that we are prolife, every prolife organisation’s charitable status, gift aid, support contracts could all be in jeopardy.

    Please take action now:
    Click on the button below to write to your MP in support of the work of Life. Remember to tell them your story, what Life means to you, why you’re involved, or maybe tell them how Life has helped you.
    Sign the Citizen GO petition in support of Life. Be sure to share it on your Facebook page.
    If ever there was a time to contact your MP, it is now. We need your practical support and direct action.

    Thank you so much for your ongoing support and encouragement.

    With very best wishes,

  17. wendy walker 12:19pm Sat 8 Apr 17
    This article is dreadfully written ,it is very one sided and it tries to cover up the horror of what an abortion entails ..Abortion at any stage takes a life it stops a beating heart ..if as abortionists say it is a non entity then why abort it ?.The abortionists try every trick in the book to lure people away from the truth and their ghastly work ….I applaud anyone who goes outside these mills to offer help ,love and support to them the abortionists hate this ….pro Life people do not charge for the help they give unlike those who charge for their infant blood **** and then have the downright cheek to charge for post abortion counselling..what a joke .It is very strange how all the so called feminists rant and rage with filthy dirty slogans and actions yet when it comes to gendercide and the killing of female babies their silence is absolutely deafening …The miracle within the womb is amazing and beautiful I would suggest some contributors on here go online and look up the development and Humanity of these lovely little people….Over 8 million citizens have been killed in ways that if it was Animals the uproar would be phenomenal and quite rightly so….babies that now are born at 22 weeks survive ….if only we had a Donald Trump a man of courage and strength who cares for these unseen members of Humanity ..I must add when do you hear of pregnant ladies saying “I am knitting a jacket for my fetus or buying a pram for my products of conception ?……

    ……

    my reply to the appalling article above please consider adding a pro life comment thank you

  18. Hi Wendy,

    Hope you’re well and finding the time to do plenty of crochet these days. Have now written out my experience of what happened with BPAS. Sorry it’s taken a while to send this as an email but here is it is;

    “BPAS showed me my (almost five month old) baby mangled up dead in front of me in October 2010 when I was 17 years old. This was at the Kings Norton clinic in Birmingham. Was sexually abused and couldn’t bear the thought of my baby growing up to participate in a sexual act I believe to be degrading and misogynistic (oral sex on men) which is normal in this culture. My life revolves around avoiding reminders of this sexual act. This was my main reason for aborting. After leaving the clinic my boobs leaked for around six months, had no idea that would happen. Had no follow up care, had no idea the baby would be so formed at that stage. I’d wanted to know what was inside me as wanted to understand to come to terms with it. I’d wanted to give birth naturally as assumed that way they just put it to sleep or something, I don’t really know what they do, but you just give birth there like a normal birth. But it would take an overnight procedure to do it that way like a normal childbirth and then my family would have found out, the thought of that terrified me. I didn’t like this method of abortion where they have to pull it out and because I imagined it would be more painful for the foetus but I had to do it this way as they couldn’t let me give birth to it naturally and then leave in the same day because it would take a long time to deliver it, so they said they’d let me see it after surgical abortion.
    After I’d had the termination someone came out and called me into another room and there were two blonde women in the room and a small white box with a thin white sheet over it and I sat down. They lifted the sheet off the box and which contained it. It was a human baby about the length of my forearm. It was lying on its back with its arms spread out, open at the sides. Its legs were straight. Bits of its skull were cracked in pieces like thin shards of glass so I couldn’t see the eyes, nose or mouth. The middle of its body was all mashed up but there was something broken in the mush of its torso and organs which I believe was the spine sticking out. It had all the same shaped nails as the father. Its hands and feet were perfect. It had tiny creases in the palms of its hands which were spread open and half of two of its fingers were missing on the left hand from the knuckle up, where they’d been ripped off. There were bits of its fingers missing on the other hand as well. You could see the flesh and bone inside of its fingers where the colours changed across where they had been cut. It had long, thin legs and the whole body of it looked very thin. The body was a translucent reddish colour with darker tones deeper inside the flesh. I think the darker tones were where the muscles were, so its legs had these dark patches inside of them I could see through the outer skin. I was very shocked to see this because I’d never had any exposure to this type of thing and couldn’t believe that there was actually another person inside me and this was him or her. I reached out and touched the top of its foot and it felt soft on top and hard underneath. It had tiny toes.

    My baby had been in one white box with a white sheet over it, but when I looked up against the wall beside the door there were flat shelves, like bookshelves mounted to the wall, with rows of these white boxes with sheets over them.
    Several years later I requested my paperwork from BPAS and there were a lot of factual errors in it regarding my personal circumstances. I also asked for counselling which their website states it can provide but was ignored and told I wouldn’t be able to have any but not given a reason as to why this was. BPAS said no to counselling and ignored my calls, emails and inbox messages on social media asking for counselling. I even sent them a scan photo from the time it happened. I left a post on their Facebook page describing my experience there and what I’d seen. They deleted this and then at that point, they called the police and reported me, presumably for being weird? I feel I’m a product of this in so many ways. To show a child a mangled up dead body and then send the person out the door in broad daylight, that’s weird. Now I too have been discarded by this organisation.

    I want my name to be known in connection with this review so people know this is coming from a real patient who went there and that this is a genuine experience, not something fabricated by someone who is pro-life. I have no religion or particular political stance. This is my experience at the Kings Norton clinic and with BPAS.

  19. The above is a true story of what happened to a young woman poor rachel when she had an abortion with BPAS….She is very much still affected by it ….Prayers needed please

  20. Pharmacists Forced to Dispense Abortion Inducing Drugs or Face Job Loss

    Dear wendy,

    On Tuesday, the General Pharmaceutical Council announced its intention to go ahead with changes that risk severely restricting the conscience rights of pharmacists.

    This is a great disappointment and potentially puts many pharmacists in a very difficult position. Pharmacists could now face loss of employment if they refuse to dispense abortion inducing drugs.

    Obviously this seriously infringes on pharmacists’ right to freedom of conscience.

    ***

    This move by the GPhC ignores the public opposition to the proposed changes – according to their own figures, over 54% of people who responded to their consultation disagreed with the changes. (See here p. 16)

    Furthermore, 46% of those who responded to the consultation said the impact of the changes on pharmacists would be “partly” or “mostly negative”. (Only 32% said these changes would be “partly” or “mostly positive”.) (See here p. 17)

    The changes which restrict the consciences for pharmacists were supposed to be for the sake of the customer/patient. It turns out now that 72% of the public who responded to the consultation do not agree with the changes. (See here p. 16)

    The GPhC therefore are not only failing to respect the freedom of conscience of pharmacists, but they are also completely ignoring the concerns of the majority of the public.

    ***

    I encourage you to email the GPhC letting them know your views about their decision: info@pharmacyregulation.org

    You can draw on some of the following points if you wish:

    1. Point out that this change is entirely unnecessary and unfairly targets pharmacists who are religious.

    2. Mention how this consultation shows that the public are opposed to this change.

    3. Mention that the GPhC should adopt an approach more like that of GMC (General Medical Council) which recognises the right of doctors to conscientiously object as enshrined in the law.

    All the best,

    Here is a plea from me regarding the absolute torrent of pro death things happening at the moment

    1…..Please sign the Petition regarding Life grant sadly standing at not even 9,000 at present …there is an abortionist version evidently but I just cannot find it yet

    2…. Please write to MP R Wilson who granted the grant to LIfe …the abortionists claim they have sent over 10,000 messages to Mr Wilson
    3…Contact your MP regarding this stating the need for LIFEs work etc

    Believe me the abortionists have been writing in droves egged on by BPAS and other awful Groups
    Never has this been so important

    4….. Please share widely and ask Pro Life people to sign urgently
    babies lives depend on it
    As we are now entering yet another Election phase and many MPs are concerned for their Political Seats they may be more responsive to Pro Life enquiries also PLEASE ASK Candidates their views on Abortion ..vital
    thank you
    Wendy

  22. I have found out the speaker for the BPAS on this video is BPAS head of Advocacy & Campaigns evidently she travels the Country visiting Police Stations to complain about Pro Lifers. Her name is ABIGAIL FITZGIBBON

    • That’s a shocking report – just imagine if the minister for health had said this about Islam – I quote:

      “He also said it is inappropriate for a hospital to have a strong religious influence, particularly from the Catholic Church.”

      It’s hard to believe this is Ireland we’re talking about.

  23. I’ve just received the following email – homosexuality is all part and parcel of the pro-life battle, so I think this is the correct thread for this development:

    • Thanks for that link Wendy – I may well do what is asked and quiz my local candidates on these issues up front.

    • I found this deeply disturbing on so many levels. What really struck me was that the woman still feels she did the right thing! That her parents agreed with abortion under certain circumstances! That she interprets Pope Francis’ words in a way that suggests abortion is ok under certain circumstances!

      Abortion is never, ever, ok!

    Our Lady invited us to pray the ROSARY!
    View this email in your browser

    Dear Wendy,
    Nigeria is the most populous nation in Africa and is growing by 3% per year. According to IPPF “Many Nigerian women and girls want contraception – but like millions around the world – can’t get it. But that could be about to change, thanks to a pilot project run by Planned Parenthood Federation of Nigeria (PPFN), IPPF’s national member. It’s proving a huge success.”

    The world needs Nigeria and its relatively high fertility rate and so we must thwart this plan. The people of Nigeria need our prayers and their government needs wisdom to see the evil plan that IPPF has mastered to destroy their families, population and culture.
    Kweku Osae Brenu is the President of the International Planned Parenthood Federation Africa Region (IPPF AR), in spite of being a legal practitioner and public notary in Ghana and needs our prayers.

    So with Rosaries in hand, on the day before the centenary of the 1st apparition of Fatima, and filled with the Blessed Sacrament we must process in prayer and peace with Our Lady aloft to the head of the global abortion industry in London England on the 12th May. Join us at St George’s Cathedral (Southwark Cathedral) with the desire to fulfil Our Lady’s request and your love for the unborn and the Gospel of Life.
    If you know of any religious orders that would support this initiative, if you know of any prayer groups that would offer their prayers before the Blessed Sacrament, if you know of any families and individuals please, please invite them physically or spiritually to be with us on the 12th.
    Details below.

    We will hold our monthly vigil from 12:30 to 15:30.

    11:45 Meet at Westminster Bridge
    12:30 Mass at St. Georges Cathedral
    13:15 Procession to IPPF Head Quarters

    Please see the flyer for the dates for the whole of 2017 which you are welcomed to print and invite your friends and family. Your help is vital to victims of abortion and those who work in the abortion industry, since many of them do not know what they are doing and need Divine Mercy, so please make a commitment to assist in this work.

    At the end of this vigil we will go to Marie Stopes abortion clinic in Whitfield St. and pray the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Holy Rosary with the icon of Our Lady maybe you can join us.

    If you cannot attend please support us by praying the Rosary, Divine Mercy Chaplet, Fasting, giving alms or doing a kindness to someone in need and all for our intention to rescue the workers of IPPF from the slavery of abortion and also for all victims of abortion.

    iHope to see you there.
    In Christ
    Joseph Clovis
    “a child is for life not just conception”

    The 9 hour novena is to Our Lady Of The Holy Rosary

    My dearest Mother Mary, behold me, your child, in prayer at your feet. Accept this Holy Rosary, which I offer you in accordance with your requests at Fatima, as a proof of my tender love for you, for the intentions of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in atonement for the offenses committed against your Immaculate Heart, and for this special favour which I earnestly request in my Rosary Novena:

    iHope’s request this month of May is that for all those who work at the IPPF HQ receive mercy from Our Lord and that this organisation IPPF may be defunded and so stop the slaughter of the unborn. also we ask that Nigeria will be protected from the proponents of the Culture of death and the heart of Kweku Brenu be touched by the love and mercy of Jesus Christ.

    We pray that God’s infinite mercy becomes apparent to them and that his love stirs in their hearts and minds enabling them to leave the industrialised slavery of abortion that binds them to the culture of death and so escape into the arms of Mary, His mother.

    I beg you to present my petition to your Divine Son. If you will pray for me, I cannot be refused. I know, dearest Mother, that you want me to seek God’s holy Will concerning our request. If what I ask for should not be granted, pray that I may receive that which will be of greater benefit to my soul.

    I offer you this spiritual Bouquet of Roses because I love you. I put all my confidence in you, since your prayers before God are most powerful. For the greater glory of God and for the sake of Jesus, your loving Son, hear and grant my prayer. Sweet Heart of Mary be my salvation.

    Just 1 day before the 100 year Anniversary of Our Lady’s visit to the 3 children in Fatima, as it was in these monthly visits that she invited the children to pray the Rosary to save souls.

    When I saw the headline, I was mentally cheering on Maria Caulfield, because that was who I thought it would be – so it was nice to hear from another MP with similar principles.
    I’m hoping that the Labour Party will read the writing on the wall after Hillary Clinton’s defeat, and realise that having BPAS as a bedfellow might prove electorally disastrous here as well as in the US.

    If there’s offspring that SHOULD be aborted, it’s one conceived in the bed shared by Labour and BPAS – or by anybody and BPAS for that matter.

    • I was so sad to see Tim Farron deny his moral beliefs, selling his soul, in fact, as the article says.

      I can’t see him being elected now. He’s sold his soul for nothing, as the article’s author states.

  30. I think any thoughts on the Manchester terrorist attack might fittingly be posted on this thread…

    I couldn’t help wondering, for example, if Donald Trump’s remarks on the Manchester terrorist attack reflected his pro-life beliefs. He seemed to hesitate at one point when speaking about the sacredness of human life and I wouldn’t be surprised if he was on the point of saying that life is sacred “whether in the womb or a concert hall” but – again – maybe I’m reading too much into his momentary hesitation.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this latest atrocity, but also with all those misguided terrorists who believe, ever so wrongly, that God could possibly condone their evil actions. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for them.

    • I’m just amazed that letter got published in the Herald. That’s really something. Two of the three comments below are so predictable. People just can’t think for themselves any more, just repeat the propaganda.

  33. R E M I N D E R . . .

    As Election Day approaches, I’d like to remind us all to ask our candidates for their position on abortion. I suggest we do not ask for their “views” as this is a matter of life and death – we want to know how informed our candidates are on the facts about the unborn child, and for an assurance that they will do all in their power to end this evil, barbarous practice. Because it is legal, doesn’t make it right. So, let’s all, each one of us, raise this with candidates at every opportunity.

  34. I don’t know if anyone remembers this poem by Spike Milligan – I always find it most moving.

    Somewhere at some time
    They committed themselves to me
    And so, I was!
    Small, but I WAS!
    Tiny, in shape
    Lusting to live
    I hung in my pulsing cave.
    Soon they knew of me
    My mother —my father.
    I had no say in my being
    I lived on trust
    And love
    Tho’ I couldn’t think
    Each part of me was saying
    A silent ‘Wait for me
    I will bring you love!’
    I was taken
    Blind, naked, defenseless
    By the hand of one
    Whose good name
    Was graven on a brass plate
    in Wimpole Street,
    and dropped on the sterile floor
    of a foot operated plastic waste
    bucket.
    There was no Queens Counsel
    To take my brief.
    The cot I might have warmed
    Stood in Harrod’s shop window.
    When my passing was told
    My father smiled.
    No grief filled my empty space.
    My death was celebrated
    With tickets to see Danny la Rue
    Who was pretending to be a woman
    Like my mother was.

    • Therese,

      WOW! I’ve never seen or heard that poem before – and from Spike Milligan of all people! Amazing. Many thanks for posting it.

      I’m still stunned by the scan I was privileged to see of my Great-Niece’s twins, due to be born in a few short weeks. One of them held up her arm, hand in a fist and that made me laugh – she obviously could see me, as I could see her!

      But it is a sobering thought, as I told my Great-Niece and her husband, that, if those twins had different parents, they may have been put to death, as an inconvenience in whichever category they were placed by the pro-abortion brigade. Sobering indeed.

      On a lighter Spike Milligan note: he said he would have the following placed on his tombstone (not sure if he ever did!)

      “I told you I was sick”!

  35. Thank you Patricia and Therese for your very valuable in put here I can only echo Patricia on how very very important it is to contact candidates for their views ……as you will see the abortionists are collating list of pro death Candidates ……..so sick
    I have heard that poignant poem years ago very touching indeed

    Wonderful 40 DAYS FOR LIFE is doing such a wonderful job ….Is anyone who reads The Blog willing to start one in their area ..thank you

  37. Wendy emailed me this information about Stonewall, sent to her by an Anglican activist group – very important to read because the LGBT lobby is pressing election candidates to extend the influence of the homosexual “community”. The linked Anglican document is challenging the LGBT election agenda.

    We need to stress to candidates that the LGBT agenda is unacceptable. Check out the information given in the above link, as it is excellent, factual, and will be very helpful in putting candidates to the test on the growing dominance of the LGBT (etc!) brigade.

    Subject: Last Election Effort: Please Use Where Do They Stand Website To E-mail MPs!

    Dear Ambassadors,

    It is Election Week, and the Pro-Life Research Unit is working hard to make sure that right-to-lifers across the UK are as best informed as they can be about the views of their local constituency Prospective Parliamentary Candidates (PPCs) on life issues. You will have seen the Where Do They Stand (WDTS) website, which enables voters to write to their PPCs asking them their views on specific subjects, and enabling them to check the views of PPCs who have responded. We hope you have used this facility, and encouraged your local networks to do the same!

    Very recently however, as you may also have seen, abortion provider BPAS have launched their own election campaign and are appealing to their large database, through partner organisations and the media, for people to email their MP candidates asking them to take their pro-choice ‘pledge’.

    They have launched this campaign very late in the election cycle, and much of their messaging appears to be designed to counter the media coverage the WDTS campaign has received due to the great work that has been done with the media on the ComRes polling that was related to it.

    While they are late with launching this, their campaign is gaining much momentum – you will see that they already have a large group of candidates that have signed the pledge.

    In the final week before the election, we need to counter their campaign with as many emails from the Where Do They Stand website to show that there is a strong appetite from constituents for change on life issues, and that this is consistent with the general public’s support for more restrictions and better support for women as outlined on the Where Do They Stand website. As opposed to the mere 1% of the British public who support the abortion lobby’s goal of ‘decriminalisation’, which would mean abortion on demand, for any reason, and potentially up to birth.

    Please then, could you in the last day of the Election campaign proper, spend some time using the WDTS website to e-mail your candidates, and encourage as many people in your networks to do the same? There is value in all candidates knowing that these issues are of importance to a significant part of their constituency, but there are also 24 MPs who voted for the Johnson Ten Minute Rule Bill and against Fiona Bruce’s sex-selective abortion amendment (a basic litmus test for identifying pro-abortion MPs) who are on the edge of losing their seats.

    If enough right-to-lifers in these areas were aware of this through using the Where Do They Stand website and voted against these MPs, we could see a number of them lose their seats. If we can get people across the country using the website, this could have a meaningful effect on the Election.

    Many thanks for all your continuing help, and I hope this finds you all enjoying a happy and successful week!

    Yours sincerely,

    Peter D. Williams

    • Theresa Rose,

      Those parents might end up in the lowest reaches of Hell for their disgraceful attitude towards their disabled child and court action against the doctor. I wish the priests and bishops were not so silent on this issue. Abortion is murder whether the baby is disabled or not and now we have parents on the take, trying to get a windfall out of it.

  39. I don’t understand why the laity still expect the hierarchy to speak out on moral issues. They won’t. They’ve lost the proverbial plot. I also do not understand why the same said laity still put money in the coffers of these apostates. If the money dried up we might, just might see some change. Just think for a minute: How can these bishops live in the luxury they do? Who finances them? Who pays for their cars and their wine? When they decide to legally chase their “detractors” (as they see it), who pays the bills?

    YOU do my friends!

    • Olaf,

      I still think we are right to expect bishops to speak out against evil. If they won’t then we have to prick their consciences.

      I do agree about drying up the coffers – I haven’t contributed to any NO collection for years now.

    • Wendy,

      Thank you for that link-alert. Shocking.

      Here’s what this “philosopher” appointed to the Vatican Pro-Life academy believes about human life in the womb:

      “…“It’s not clear that a human foetus is the same kind of thing as an adult or a mature human being, and therefore deserves quite the same treatment. It then becomes a question of where we draw the line, and there is no absolutely cogent reason for drawing it in one place over another.”

      This is a man appointed by the Pope to the Vatican Academy for Life? The old quip “Is the Pope Catholic?” is no longer a joke – it’s a very serious question. Pray for him. He is going to need all the help he can get at his Judgment.

  40. I just wanted to mention Vin Garbutt ‘The Teeside Troubadour,’ who died last week. RIP. He wrote and sung all his folk songs which were about many injustices in society and this included abortion. He was very well known and liked throughout the folk world . Even the Guardian and Independent gave him a fine obituary. link to independent…

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/obituaries/vin-garbutt-remembered-died-69-british-folk-music-artist-a7779331.html

    He produced many pro-life albums and held concerts for prolife societies.

    One of his songs was about Lynda. “Her doctor said ‘there is no hope but I’ll do what I can’, but Linda said, ‘As long as I’m not dead he’ll grow to be a man’
    If you look on his official sit you can listen to this song…

    God Bless, Vin and may he rest in peace.

    • I hadn’t heard of Vin Garbutt before. He had a unique apostolate in the pro-life cause, very imaginative. He is in my prayers – may he rest in peace.

  41. Clotide

    I am so sorry to hear this news. God rest his soul. I was privileged to hear Vin Garbutt sing, years ago, and I have some of his songs. I remember some of the words of his ” Ballad of John Pearson”, the baby with Down’s Syndrome who was “allowed to die” ie starved to death, because he was “defective”,ie

    “I was born one morn in a hospital ward in 1980, when the crime of imperfection reached it highest.. never since the Nazi war, have the sick been left to die at the doctor’s door…buy my doctor swore an eyesore would I be, yes, my doctor swore an eyesore would I be…

    He was a marvellous voice for the unborn, and I will pray for the repose of his soul. God bless him.

    • Clotide & Therese,

      That’s very interesting. I’d never heard of that singer – that a great way to engage in pro-life work. May he rest in peace.

  42. Wendy,

    Disgraceful beyond words. Compare that calculated disregard for human life, with this piece of showmanship reported in Zenit (the text of which was emailed to me by our French blogger Lionel this morning – hence simpler for me to post the text rather than search out the original link, which I do have in my inbox):

    FROM ZENIT…

    “The Gospel teaches us to help those who live in need, and the first need is that of lodging,” said Monsignor Konrad Krajewski, the Pope’s Almoner. He has put his apartment in the Vatican at the disposal of migrants fleeing from war-torn regions, reported Vatican Radio in Brazilian Portuguese. He himself, after months of work, sleeps in his office.

    It is a “natural and spontaneous” gesture, but has nothing of the heroic,” clarified Monsignor Krajewski, who has responded to Pope Francis’ appeal, during the Angelus of September 6, 2015, to receive in each parish or Religious Community at least one refugee from Syria or from North Africa fleeing from war and hunger.

    Monsignor Krajewski is giving hospitality to refugees for as long as necessary until they find definitive lodging. “A few weeks ago. Other families arrived and – a lovely thing – for the first time a beautiful little girl was born in my house and, I confess, I feel a bit like a grandfather, an uncle. It’s life that continues, a gift of God,” he said.

    In April of 2016, Pope Francis himself brought three refugee families to Rome, from the refugee camp in the Greek Island of Lesbos, they were received first in Saint Anne’s parish in the Vatican and later by Sant’Egidio Community.

    Last June 13, the Pope published his first message for the World Day of the Poor (November 19, 2017), suggesting to the baptized and Communities concrete gestures on this occasion. He suggested receiving the poor at one’s table: “Let us not love in words, but in deeds,” he wrote.

    As the Monsignor himself admits, his “natural and spontaneous” gesture has “nothing of the heroic”. He’s right about that.

    Were it heroic we wouldn’t know about it. It’s that simple. Rushing press releases out to the media doesn’t sit comfortably with the Gospel injunction to not let your right hand know what your left hand is doing – that is, don’t boast about your good deeds. After all, if, as Pope Francis tells us, we mustn’t “obsess” about the murder of unborn babies, why should we obsess about anybody else, including refugees?

    • Wendy Walker,

      I felt a shiver down my spine reading that Catholic Herald report. What is Pope Francis thinking of appointing a Jewish rabbi who is in favour of abortion and eugenics? It’s unthinkable!

    • Wendy Walker,

      That report about the gorgeous little baby girl is just heart-rending. I would lock that excuse-for-a-man up and throw away the key.

      • Dear Margaret Mary
        Yes I agree but this is what abortion has created violence both in and out of the womb ..heartbreaking indeed bless her

    Dear WENDY,

    It’s decision time!

    If no one from your town has applied to LEAD a 40 Days for Life campaign yet … time’s running out!

    The deadline is tomorrow, Friday, June 23.

    http://40daysforlife.com/apply
    image
    Will your community take part in 40 Days for Life from September 27 to November 5?

    If you’re still deciding … then now is the time to ask yourself these three questions:

    Could lives be saved from abortion in your city?
    Could abortion workers have a change of heart and quit their jobs?
    Could your town’s abortion center go out of business?
    All of these things have happened in many communities!

    Our culture needs the joy and renewal of the Holy Spirit. If you are truly called to this mission, He will guide you every step of the way — and of course, you will also have the constant support of the 40 Days for Life headquarters team.

    http://40daysforlife.com/apply

    The deadline is tomorrow. If you have questions … please ask today!

    • Wendy Walker,

      That was an amazing report to read. I never really thought about the fathers before but they do suffer, and so they should have a say when a woman asks for an abortion. I wish society would return to frowning on promiscuity and make it the right thing for everyone to wait for marriage and at the same time re-criminalise abortion or at least make it unavailable on the NHS. Right now, society is a mess due to so many casual relationships and so many ending in abortions.

  44. Dear WENDY,

    The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) have halted their intolerant crusade against those with conscientious objections to abortion!

    Pharmacists can continue to refuse to dispense abortion inducing drugs without fear of loss of employment!

    Thanks to the outcry of many pharmacists and the excellent work of our allies over at the Christian Institute, the GPhC have since backed down from their illiberal proposal that would have forced pharmacists to provide abortion inducing drugs against their conscience.

    A refusal to do so would force the pharmacist to employ someone else who would provide it (an unaffordable cost for many), or even face loss of employment.

    Thankfully, pharmacists are free to act in accordance with their consciences and continue to provide what they believe to be the best services to their customers.

    Earlier this year, the GPhC changed its guidance on conscientious refusals, and attempted to force all pharmacists who disagree with dispensing drugs which induce abortions to do so.

    Due to pressure from the National Secular Society, and after ignoring the thousands of responses they received in opposition to this proposal, they went ahead with this intolerant move and decided to compel pharmacists to dispense abortifacient drugs against their conscience.

    As said, they have now backed down!

    This is excellent news for pro-life pharmacists and for people everywhere who value freedom of conscience and belief.

    This is an important victory against those who wish to limit the freedom of others, and should encourage us all!

    All the best,

    A New African Pro-Life Documentary
    We are producing a feature-length documentary that presents the (most personal and moving) stories of how abortion has affected the lives of some women in Africa.
    This documentary will also show how some of the western donor funding given to certain organizations affect the lives of individual women living in Africa.
    We already have started this project on our own and so have recorded hours of interviews mostly in Kenya but also in Ethiopia.
    We have also been fortunate to receive some interviews recorded by Human Life International in Uganda which highlight even more what happens to women in rural parts of Africa when they are given (donated)contraceptives without ever being informed of possible side effects.
    These stories are compelling and some of it is heartbreaking and they bring to the surface a side of Africa that is not captured by the wealthy international media like CNN & BBC.
    This is why we wanted to raise these unheard voices of Africa.
    There are many costs to consider to get these rough cut interviews into a feature length documentary.
    The budget is $22,000 which should cover every aspect of production from this point to the finish line.
    It will be a miracle to realize this documentary.
    And we believe firmly in miracles.
    Please could you consider supporting this project?
    Here is how you can join us to make this documentary.

    • John,

      Nothing surprises any more but we should never lose our sense of shock at evil.

      I’m not a Twitter account holder, but I wonder what would happen if every pro-lifer / Catholic (same thing, or should be the same thing) closed their Twitter accounts in protest at this injustice-cum-shameful-brazen-discrimination?

  48. Oh the iniquity of it all. It doesn’t bear thinking about. Oh the horror! the horror! to paraphrase Joseph Conrad in his book “Heart of Darkness”. Mankind has stooped to unbelievable depths and may the Lord end it all soon.

    • Dear Olaf ..yes indeed to see these harpies screaming for more and more infant bloodlust …is so painful the evil just keeps on coming

  49. Wendy suggests that I post a copy of the email I sent to Stella Creasy MP – she’s been campaigning very hard for free abortions for women in the North of Ireland (i.e. to come here for free abortions since – thank God – the evil of abortion is still not permitted in N.I. Long may that last…)

    Dear Ms Creasy,

    I have just watched this week’s Question Time, originally broadcast on Thursday, which I had recorded.

    Your inclusion on the panel interested me, since I have been following your enthusiastic support for the right of women to choose to abort their babies, in the context of Northern Ireland, where, to date, the law still protects the unborn child.

    Thus, what I found particularly interesting about your appearance on Question Time, was your insistence, during the short debate on the merits of the mainstream media, on the importance of good, reliable sources of information.

    I couldn’t help thinking that if you applied that sound principle to the issue of procured abortion, you would be sure to reach a very different conclusion.

    May I suggest that you pay a visit to the website of Abort 67 which, I warn, contains graphic images of aborted babies. To be truly informed about abortion, it is, self-evidently, crucial to actually SEE what it is that is being aborted. Click here to visit Abort 67.

    If you are honest enough to visit that site, you will see that this is not “propaganda” as the critics of the pro-life movement claim, any more than the dead bodies we are shown on the mainstream media, photographed and filmed by journalists in Syria and other war zones, are “propaganda.”

    I will add only that, although I write in my capacity as Editor of Catholic Truth, I do so, NOT because abortion is a “religious” issue, but because it is a moral issue – it is about right and wrong, and nobody with an objective eye and mind, who looks at the facts about the baby in the womb, can do otherwise than conclude that abortion – the termination of life, that is the killing of life, in the womb – is wrong, to put the case as mildly as possible.

    With kind regards.

    God bless.

  50. Rachael, contraception destroys marriage and families. It is intrinsically evil. I am shocked that ‘Save the Children’ is involved in promoting it. Sean

    We won’t accept it. No pictures? Click here.

    Hi Sean,

    I’d always taken mine for granted – until I discovered that 214 million women globally would like to use contraception but can’t.

    We have just 5 days to call for millions of women and girls to be empowered to take control of their lives.

    Sign our petition to Priti Patel, International Development Secretary, now and call on her to keep UK aid focused on those who need it most.
    10 SECONDS TO SIGN

    Aid gives people the power to plan.

    In just 5 days the UK hosts an international summit on family planning in London, bringing world leaders together to pledge to ensure that millions more women can choose whether or when to have a baby.

    Giving women, men and teenagers access to the pill and condoms gives them the power to plan. This ability to choose when and how many children you have is life-changing and reduces life-threatening dangers to both mothers and babies.

    Please sign the petition. The UK’s role in providing these services is one of the best examples of the aid we give. Together we’re saving lives and helping people in the poorest communities stand on their own two feet.

    We can’t let that stop now.

    I have just become aware of your appalling e -mail regarding so called contraception ……..which is a complete scourge of the modern World !
    Are you NOT aware that most so called contraceptives are abortifaciant ?…. Therefore not preventing new life but actually killing it
    Also these human Pesticides are without doubt extremely dangerous carrying high risks to the taker of these noxious substances given that your targets seem to be African and Asian ladies who may be miles from a Dr and or couldnt afford treatment then I am sure you will see the gravity of foisting totally alien and often unwanted pharmaceutical products on them
    Your organisations name is totally misleading as it seems combined with Abortion ….Children are NOT saved from being contracepted ,aborted …….it is totally anti life ..shame on you all
    All the £millions poured into the total evil of so called contraception ,abortion and sterilization surely would be better spent helping people with food ,shelter ,clothing ………?……wouldnt it ?
    many indiginous people love and cherish big families it would seem the de populators have a very specific mission to reverse this !!!…Look at Europe where populations are at extremely low levels ..so now its the turn of the east and Africa to suffer

    • Mitchteemley,

      Brilliant!

      I paid a visit to your site recently (yesterday, I think, after you “liked” one of our posts) and was very impressed. I am hoping (with your permission) to publish your piece on caterpillars in one of our forthcoming editions of the CT newsletter. Just not gotten around to emailing you yet. Hope that’s OK but if not, say nothing. I’ll publish it anyway. Yip, I’m that cheeky!

      And while I’m on here, folks, it struck me that annoying as I find the news broadcasters who insist on saying “so-called ISIS”, I emailed Wendy to suggest that we do the same, only with “women’s rights” – “so-called women’s rights” will nicely drive the baby-killers round the bend, one hopes.

      Wendy also wants to refer to “so-called contraception” – and I think she has a point: click here to discover why…

  52. Dear regular bloggers,

    You may recall my recent comments with regard to one Polly Toynbee.

    Well, I had a letter published in the 29/06 edition of the Bedfordshire Times & Citizen. Someone took exception to my opinions in the following week’s edition (06/07), you can read it here on p12 (‘Catholics – A bit of an own goal’) http://edition.pagesuite-professional.co.uk/launch.aspx?eid=63e4d997-bfb1-412e-a526-829711cbd819

    If you wish to read my original ‘piece’, the older editions are published in the ‘archive’ tab. I don’t wish to enter into any childish ‘handbags’ stuff with Ms Lindsay, so I would appreciate any supporting follow-up from your good selves.

    The e-mail address is editorial@timesandcitizen.co.uk

    Many thanks.

    • Pat,

      I’ve now emailed a letter for publication to the Bedfordshire Times & Citizen, but first, for ease of reference, I’m publishing YOUR original letter for the benefit of bloggers trying to contextualise my letter.

      FROM PAT MCKAY

      For the attention of the Editor
      Dear Madam,

      Following the recent Finsbury Park terror attack, it’s no big surprise that a steady stream of imams, Muslim Council chiefs, politicians etc. have appeared before the tv cameras, condemning this as an attack specifically aimed at Muslims (which of course, it was). An increased police presence around mosques was immediately put in place up and down the country.
      Contrast this, however, with the Samurai sword attack on parishioners at Sunday Mass in Croydon some years ago (see http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/november/28/newsid_2527000/2527805.stm ). No such ‘knee-jerk reaction’ from the police on this occasion – and I don’t recall a visit from Prince Charles either.
      We’ve heard various political sources claiming that it’s ‘hate speech’ in the media, on Facebook etc. that ‘fuels this kind of behaviour’ and that ‘hate speech should not be tolerated’. Funny how nobody bats an eyelid when hate speech is directed against the Catholic Faith, but let anyone breathe a word against Islam and suddenly there’s a hue and cry ‘shock, horror, prejudice, intolerance, bigotry’ etc.
      One example that springs to mind is journalist Polly Toynbee, who said this some time ago on the subject of frozen human embryos….
      ….‘I have a modest proposal: teams of Catholic nuns should step forward and volunteer for these immaculate conceptions. “Save a Foetus for Jesus” could be the rallying cry for all those who believe that from the moment of conception, a unique and immortal soul is created’….. Source:- http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/wholl-bear-an-unwanted-foetus-1316899.html

      Toynbee’s remarks here are ignorant, stupid and offensive. But if Catholics were to complain that this was ‘hate speech’, what sort of response would they get? If the authorities are serious about ‘clamping down on hate speech’, this needs to be all-encompassing, not selective. They could start by making an example of the gobby Ms Toynbee, but I won’t be holding my breath.

      Sincerely,
      Patrick McKay.

      Then Nicola Lindsay threw in her tuppence worth, which you can read on page 12 of the link to the Times & Citizen, posted by Pat McKay above.

      To which I replied as follows…

      Dear Sir,

      Nicola Lindsay has some nerve insinuating that Catholics per se are guilty of “hate speech” (whatever the heck that means. These days, it can mean simply refusing to bake a cake! Crackers!) – Times & Citizen, 6th July.

      She ridicules Pat McKay for his criticism of one of Polly Toynbee’s bigoted rants against the Catholic Church, because, referring to the elephant in the room, he points out that nobody considers attacks on Catholicism to be “hate speech”. Far from it. You’re more likely to get a standing ovation at the annual National Union of Journalists Conference than a visit from your local police if you take a swipe at Catholics.

      Ms Lindsay, following in the hate-filled tradition of the Polly Toynbees of this world, would do well to reflect on the fact that a key reason for her readiness to savage our holy religion in print with her nasty innuendo, is because she knows full well that she will live to tell the tale. Reflect.

        Dear Sir

        You really couldn’t make this stuff up. Nicola Lindsay has the nerve to take Pat McKay to task for “hate speech” (Times and Citizen 6 July) by spouting hate speech herself! Not to worry though – she’s hating a Christian so “move along there – there’s nothing to see here”.

        Incidentally, I hope I won’t be accused of the same by pointing out that Ms Toynbee should educate herself on the term “Immaculate Conception”; here’s a hint: it doesn’t refer to the Virgin Birth, but then Ms Toynbee has never struck me as someone interested in the facts, only in her own opinion.

        Yours faithfully

        Signed.

  53. William has posted this excellent video over on the General Discussion thread 15. It’s more at home here, thought, so to make sure it doesn’t get missed, I decided to post it here as well (although I recommend bloggers read William’s excellent accompanying commentary as well.)

    • That’s fantastic to hear an African woman telling the west off for their ignorance in pushing contraception as a “basic human right”? in Africa. What?!

      It’s brilliant to hear her say “that’s the western solution” and “why don’t YOU listen”! She is quick and to the point – a fantastic speaker.

      She gives away the fact that a lot of the aid money from here is going to contraceptive programmes, that’s where our tax money is going, and it’s disgraceful to think we are suffering under the austerity programme while our money is being squandered abroad like this, forcing countries like Africa to use it for needless contraception instead of water and food as the woman says.

      That’s a great video.

    Dear Beth

    ‘Save the Children’ have got it wrong. Contraception is intrinsically evil. It destroys fertility, harms women, ruins families, undermines society and can be abortifacient.

    Fertility is not a disease. Contraception is not medicinal.

    Please do not erode society and culture in the developing world. The solution to poverty is not to poison the poor, but to build up infrastructure.

    I cannot recommend anyone support ‘Save the Children’ unless contraception is rejected and a culture of life is espoused.

    Yours sincerely

    MILLIONS GET THE POWER TO PLAN

    Hi Sean,

    Together we did it! More than 13,500 of us showed International Development Secretary Priti Patel that we want UK aid to keep giving the world’s poorest women and girls the power to plan their futures.

    At a global summit on Tuesday, she announced a bold plan to increase investment in family planning by 25%.

    The new commitment will help 120 million more women and girls access contraception by 2020 giving them the power to plan. Thank you!

    Save the Children’s Campaign Champion Lucia Greco (far right) shares your ask with Priti Patel

    READ THE BLOG

    We’ve a long way to go. One teenage girl dies every 20 minutes around the world as a result of pregnancy or childbirth.

    But your actions – and the commitment of the UK government – will transform and save lives. We can all be proud of the UK’s compassion and generosity towards children and their families in the toughest situations.

    You have an important part to play in this: look out for more ways you can get involved.

    Thank you for all your support,

  55. There’s an article in today’s Scotsman Newspaper reporting the fact that Bruce Adamson, Children’s Commissioner for Scotland is ranting on about his favourite hobby horse, which is to ban smacking.

    I have now written to him (and I know at least one other person is going to do so) to point out his hypocrisy, considering the much worse danger to children posed by abortion.

    He can be contacted via the online email form on his website here

    I hope others will write to him – the more the merrier.

    MY EMAIL TO BRUCE ADAMSON

    I have read the report in today’s Scotsman Newspaper about your continuing determination to outlaw smacking – as if parental rights are not being sufficiently undermined by the Scottish Government already. If you have ever seen the strongly disapproving looks of onlookers when a young mother with a toddler struggles to reason with the child, to make her behave without smacking (knowing that the mobiles would be whizzing in a nano-second if she dared a light skelp since all else is failing) you would see how totally unreasonable your plans to ban smacking, and the signal it sends to children. They’ve already got the message in schools that they can be rude, nasty, lazy and whatever and teachers cannot do a thing about it, so, having come for the teachers, it’s inevitable that you have now come for the parents.

    Above all, however, what gets me about your alleged concern for the “rights” of children is your total silence on the matter of children in the womb – the most dangerous place to be in anyone’s life, these days. I’d attach a photo of an aborted baby but for the fact that I’d probably end up in court for my trouble. No, Mr Adamson, you don’t give a toss about the rights of children. What you do care about is undermining parents by spreading a ridiculous ideology based on a false definition of “rights”. I hope your plans to ban smacking are every bit as successful as your attempt to introduce State Guardians in the Named Person Scheme, described by the Supreme Court in London as more typical of a totalitarian regime than a democratic government. Signed, Editor, Catholic Truth

  56. Here’s my ‘tuppence-worth’ to Bruce Adamson….

    I have read the report in today’s ‘Scotsman’ Newspaper and I am writing to say how dismayed I am with your persistent determination to outlaw smacking.

    ‘Spare the rod and spoil the child’ is and old and very true saying. It should be left to the parents to decide how best to discipline their children, the Scottish Government should keep their noses out of it.

    There are many other forms of ‘child abuse’ that you could be speaking out about if you wish to be seen to be ‘earning your corn’. For example, the ‘LGBT agenda’ that schools are foisting upon children. And what about the adoption of children by homosexual ‘couples’?

    In case you are unaware, a number of independent research projects have shown that there is an an extraordinarily high incidence of ‘bad stuff’ among homosexuals, who number a mere 2% of the population. I’m talking here about alcoholism, drug addiction, child abuse, STDs, suicides and other violent deaths.

    To promote or encourage homosexuality is criminally insane. Why is there not a peep from you about THIS, when it’s an issue that really matters?

  57. Going to hell in a Marxist handcart

    Disaster strikes and what do we do? Well, it would seem that political agitators declare a celebration and start exploiting human tragedy to stir up rebellion. And yes, the word is used deliberately because that is exactly what we seeing from the likes of John MacDonnell and his ‘Day of rage’ (see, http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/819499/Day-Of-Rage-London-Protest-John-McDonnell-blasted-for-endorsing-march-on-Parliament-video; http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/06/25/john-mcdonnell-claims-grenfell-tower-fire-victims-murdered-political/), and the perennially discontented Left, who still, it would appear, want nothing so much as to string up anyone who disagrees with their dystopian vision of the future from the nearest lamppost.

    The furious reaction of Grenfell Tower residents at the first public meeting of Kensington and Chelsea Council to be chaired by their new leader – the last one having been forced to resign – is surely a case in point. The fire without doubt was a tragedy of such gargantuan proportions that the whole nation was justifiably filled with horror. To have lived through it must have been hell. But attempts to help were immediate – from the bravery of the fire fighters and emergency services, to the overwhelming generosity of the public who donated enough (largely unwanted) clothes to kit out a small nation, to the local council, government … and even the Queen. All rushed to help. Inevitably, in the first bewildered attempts to get a handle on what had happened, there was confusion, and perhaps in retrospect at least part of the response could have been better planned, but the impetus to help was unstintingly sincere, and those efforts continue. In just the same way, efforts to pinpoint the cause were immediate and, leaving angry rhetoric aside, at no point has there so far been any credible suggestion of a cover-up or attempts to suppress the truth.

    Yet all we have heard reported in the media from survivors have been unremitting expressions of anger and accusations of guilt. Someone has to pay, they cry! But those ‘someones’ appear to be anyone connected with the British establishment, who they appear to want replaced wholesale by… by whom?

    Now there’s the rub!

    It seems our grumbling and discontented malcontents are so intent on screaming ‘abuse’ that they won’t let themselves be helped, no matter how genuine and honest the efforts being made – whether by hapless councillors who surely, despite accusations of malpractice, have been trying for years to provide for the people in their care; or by members of the Inquiry set up to investigate the reasons for the fire; or by the Conservative government. All offers and attempts are alike deemed a failure – seemingly to be rejected out of hand as unworthy even of consideration. In fact, all offers of help up to now seem to have been branded capitalist exploitation – wicked plots to have the poor and disadvantaged removed … eradicated. There have even been whispers that the fire was deliberately orchestrated to achieve this end!

    So what is it these people, the survivors – many of whom, we are told, are in this country illegally – want? What will satisfy them?

    Admittedly, those of us not directly affected cannot fully appreciate the mountain of anguish those afflicted now face. And of course they need and deserve our help – but it would seem that genuinely sincere efforts to provide acceptable housing and support are being made.

    One would have thought, at some point then, that a small thank you might have been in order – rather than the feral howls of denunciation and screams for retribution currently filling the news and that seem inexorably, if the demands aren’t met, paving the way for riot.

    The reason this is so disturbing, however, is that it appears symptomatic of a more generalised climate of universal complaint, being deliberately stoked by those seeking ideological and political change in order to grab power. To put it another way, it has the flavor of deliberate destabilisation of society, built on exploitation of the vulnerable and ignorant, in order to foment civil unrest that will overturn the old order and give rise to the imposition of socialist rule.

    Let us make no mistake, what we are witnessing is at heart a spiritual battle for the soul of our nation. This cannot go on. We need as a matter of urgency to recover our national identity, and to be ‘proud’ of those values that once made our nation so great. In particular, we need unashamedly to recover and stand on our Christian heritage – because those are the values that truly do underpin our democracy. There have undoubtedly been mistakes, and it is imperative they are now addressed and put right. But credit should be given in those cases where it is due. And cringing in shame before unjustified accusations of corruption, exploitation, and abuse help no one. Infinitely worse, such a response can only feed the lawless and unprincipled, creating a society where dog eats dog, and where the vulnerable truly will have no defence.

Then the National Trust would have a problem.

  62. Dear WENDY,

    Thank you!

    This is a big year for the pro-life movement, as record numbers of abortion facilities close their doors. This is the time to keep your foot on the gas!

    • John,

      Thank you for posting that video. Tucker Carlson is one of my heroes! I’ve seen loads of his interviews, clips on YouTube, and he is terrific. If only we had even ONE journalist like him here in the UK it would be wonderful. Instead we have a bunch of morons who trot out the latest party line without, literally, a thought.

      I’ve got plans to use Tucker in some blog articles from time to time – one hilarious one soon, but that’s top secret for now, say nothing. Keep this between thee and me!

    • Pat,

      Not necessarily pleased with themselves. I once participated in a pro-life debate at the University of Durham where one of the pro-abortion speakers slipped up by saying that despite these (at that time) “excellent” abortion statistics, still, some babies “slipped through the net” (and were born.)

      I kid you not. Utterly stunned at the slip of the tongue, she was obviously embarrassed, but didn’t retract.

      • And I once read what an abortionist had to say…’despite our best efforts, some of the little blighters still manage to make it’….

        Oremus.

    • Wendy

      Couldn’t resist putting a comment up on that “Conversation” article. The pro-death contributors are going to love me!

    • Wendy Walker,

      “Bunions”?!!!! That is totally shocking.

      I agree that she should be immediately sacked, that’s without a doubt, but she is not likely to be sacked these days.

    • Wendy Walker,

      That is a disgrace, the cancelling of the pro-life conference due to the bullying and intimidation of the pro-abortionists. I quote from the report:

      ““The manager himself spoke to me directly of 50 pages of commentary, emails and social media, that a Facebook page had been set up opposing the conference, as well as diatribe, intimidation, upset of his staff, personal visits to the hotel and threats of protest at the hotel if conference continues. In the interest of health and safety of his staff, he had to cancel venue,” McCrystal said.

      He described the abuse as “yet another example of censorship and is an attack on free speech,” and added: “Who decides who may speak in Ireland? This is an attack on the very foundation of democracy in our country.””

      Their consciences are bad, that’s why they hate all pro-life events and they are such hypocrites, always claiming that peaceful pro-lifers are intimidating women and interfering with free speech etc. when they are the ones doing the intimidating.

      I don’t think much of the hotel, though, for cancelling the conference. I wouldn’t give them any business from now on.

      That’s very calculated to insult the Catholic religion, even if the pope is an outright liberal. I think I’ve more or less made up my mind never to visit Ireland again. I don’t have relatives there but have been over on holiday, but not any more.

    pOOR JACOB REES MOGG AMONGST RABID ABORTIONISTS IN CARDIFF

  69. Abortion and gay marriage are at risk, says George Soros

    Congratulations WENDY!

    George Soros has just published an article in which he laments the growth of what he calls the “conservative movement” in Latin America and elsewhere around the globe.

    He’s afraid of what we are accomplishing. To quote Don Quixote, “Let the dogs bark, Sancho. It’s a sign that we are on track.”

    Here’s what Soros says:

    “A dangerous concept has emerged in Latin America, one with the power to rapidly mobilize voters and give new energy to the socially conservative agenda. . . . If the false narrative of gender ideology continues to gain momentum, the hard-won rights of [the Left for abortion and gay “marriage”] could be endangered.”

    The article mentions some milestones that he considers worrisome, such as the social mobilization in Peru against gender indoctrination in children’s school curriculum, and the marches in Mexico against so-called ‘marriage’ between people of the same sex.

    These are campaigns that CitizenGO’s Latin American team have been involved with. The article even uses a picture of our #FreeSpeechBus in Chile!

    And now the bus has had successful stops in Germany, and is currently on tour in Italy:

    …in Germany…

    …and outside the Supreme Court in Rome, Italy…

    Of course there are several responses to his article:

    He claims that gender ideology is a false narrative. Curiously, that’s the same argument used across Latin America, the Caribbean, and elsewhere to try to slip transgenderism and homosexuality into schools. Perhaps it’s because they receive this argument from the same financier?
    When Soros talks about women’s rights, he refers to the so-called “right to abortion.” But what about the right to life of the unborn child? And if the unborn child is a girl, where her rights?
    When Soros speaks of LGBT rights, he refers to “right” to “marriage” between people of the same sex. What about the right of children to have a father and a mother?
    He says gender ideology does not pose a threat to Christian values. Speaking to all Catholics, Pope Benedict XVI said, “Gender ideology is the last rebellion of man against God.” And what about the Nashville Statement of American evangelicals, which uses Scripture to condemn gender ideology?
    In any case, WENDY, I think it’s very good news that Soros is worried. The millions of dollars that his Open Society Foundation has invested to impose abortion and gay “marriage” in our countries is at risk.

    We are winning!

    And we do it without the resources the other side has, or their ability to influence governments. What’s our secret? You. You and me and the 1.7 million CitizenGOers all over the world. Ordinary people who say, “Enough!”

    The key lies in active and organized civil society. We will not tolerate ideological imposition.

    Thanks for making it possible, WENDY!

    I’ll just ask you one favor: George Soros insists that “gender ideology” does not exist. Let’s expose what they’re teaching to children for the world to see!

    Post this photo on Twitter so that everyone knows what we are talking about when we mention gender ideology. This is the insanity that they’re teaching to kids in school:

    At CitizenGO, we take a different view.

    We defend marriage between a man and a woman.
    We support the right of parents to educate their children, and their right to reject unwelcome ideologies.
    We defend the right to life from the moment of conception to natural death.
    We reject well-funded, external, ideological impositions that seek to subvert our values, traditions and beliefs.
    If Soros wants to deny that gender ideology exists, let’s talk about gender ideology and prove that it does.
    Tweet this: Hey @GeorgeSoros, gender ideology is real. This is what’s being taught in schools. #FreeSpeechBus

    Congratulations again, WENDY. We managed to annoy and worry George Soros. No doubt, we’re on the right track.

    Sincerely,

    Josh Craddock and the entire CitizenGO team

    • Wendy,

      I’ve tried several times to send a message to that “contact” link but it won’t take my message – which is simply asking for the link to the original report, because when I Google Abortion and gay marriage are at risk, says George Soros I don’t get anything remotely like that coming up.

      Will try again later, but if anyone else is more successful, please post the link here. I’m a tad cynical – seems to me that the Soros Philosophy should simply be, throw even more money at the “trans” issue, to get the same acceptance-result that worked with the brain-dead who accept same-sex “marriage” and the murder of unborn babies. He’s not short of money, so I can’t see that he would be too worried about this latest craziness.

    Jean Stephenson Rewarded for killing pre-bro human beings?! hmm … A bit like posthumously awarding Hitler for his ‘Final Solution’ which was a euphemism for the mass killing of Jews. Only by tactically dehumanising the Jews, making them seem sub human in the minds of the masses could his plans have been so welcomed by some while making others apathetic to their plight. So today, abortion is promoted as simply a ‘woman’s rights’ issue by using now commonly accepted euphemisms for pre-born babies like ‘blobs of tissue’, ‘uterine contents’, oh, yes and fetus which has been, for far too long, misinterpreted to mean ‘blob of tissue’, just a bunch of cells ad nauseam. No, abortion kills a human being, Ann Furedi, you have even admitted that abortion kills another human:

    “We can accept that the embryo is a living thing in the fact that it has a beating heart, that it has its own genetic system within it. It’s clearly human in the sense that it’s not a gerbil, and we can recognize that it is human life… the point is not when does human life begin, but when does it really begin to matter?”

    unbelievable ISNT IT ?

  71. Just came across this free on-line population control conference, intending to expose the dirty deeds of the rats embedded in the Church: Oct. 17-19:

    http://www.populationconference.com./.

    “Discover how radical enemies of life are pushing their global agenda to end poverty by eliminating the poor … and how they’re using the Vatican to achieve their goals!”

    • RCA Victor,

      I visited that link but don’t really understand it. It says it’s a free online conference, register for free, but then says “limited spaces available”. How can that be, if it’s an online conference?

      Anyway, I don’t see how we can join in at this end of the world, given the time difference between here and the USA. It’s a good idea though.

      • Josephine,

        Good questions! So I registered to see what would happen, and am awaiting my email confirmation, but meanwhile, the crass world of commercialism reared its head, offering me an upgrade to “Lifetime Access,” for $19.00, if I cannot attend all the conferences.

        I’ve now received the email, and it appears the upgrade is a fund-raiser for the Lepanto Institute. They do some good work regarding exposing the Catholic bishops’ funding of anti-Catholic groups, but they are essentially under the umbrella of “conservative Novus Ordo,” I believe.

  73. Abortion Law: What’s going on…

    DearWENDY,

    I just wanted to send you this quick email to let you know in my short interview about what’s going on in the UK and Ireland in regard to abortion.

    http://www.a1r.tv/videos/view/16324

    If you’ve got the time you can see me talking about the discussion surrounding the 8th Amendment in Ireland and the disgraceful decision of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists to support the complete removal of all legal restrictions on abortion. This would make abortion legal up until birth, remove any legal protections for doctors who cannot (for reasons of conscience) perform abortions and would remove legal mechanisms which help to ensure that women are not forced to have abortions.

    I said this would be a quick email so, if you want to hear me talking about these topics further, follow this link: http://www.a1r.tv/videos/view/16324

  74. One of the police officers gave us the card of the head of Democratic (?) Services and this is the person to write to, to ask why such an important public meeting with grave implications for free speech in

    the UK was just limited to 18 places for each side – pro-life and pro death in a cramped public gallery and no comments allowed under threat of being asked to leave (SEE BELOW FOR ADDRESS).

    It was essentially a ‘done deal’ although the Council stopped short of defining the concrete measures they would take but simply stating that they would seek ‘legal advice’ before commencing any action

    on the proposed Public Space Protection Order (PSPOs). (The ‘fake news’ doesn’t say that!!)

    The Christian Institute is watching matters closely so let’s all bring additional protest pressure to bear and see what happens…..

    Remember too, that the Council’s proposal breaches the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) Article 10 which articulates the freedom to receive and communicate information especially PERTAINING TO MEDICAL MATTERS (MY EMPHASIS). The UK is still a signatory to the ECHR-for now.

    This goes to show now that writing and e-mailing the Council is critical to point out the dangers of going ahead with what they are being urged to do – many letters on this please; it is so important
    that pro-life activists raise the alarm on this potentially very harmful precedent – and gain support from other protest movements dealing with their subjects too since it will affect them in time also.

    Just remember, DOING NOTHING ABOUT IT IS NO LONGER AN OPTION……..

    The details are as follows –

    The TWO ABSTENTIONS – two Councillors to write (to clarify why they abstained – were they worried that this action proposed goes too far?) to (SEPARATELY) are as follows –

  75. Yes Wendy, I watched the one-sided view of the Anne Robinson BBC TV programme. Inviting 9 people, 7 pro-abortion and 2 pro-life folk to discuss what turns out to be a political broadcast in support of decriminalisation of Abortion.
    There were no true facts given about abortion, apart from the fact that it has been a criminal offence since (and before) the 1967 Act.except when certain conditions which allow it. (We all know that the law is flouted so it is almost abortion a on demand)

    Anne said that the foetus does not feel pain. There were no facts given about the development of the baby and how its heart beats at 7 weeks, is sentient at 12 weeks, and fully developed so it only has to grow. Nothing about how most women seeking abortion are pressured by family, doctors and their husbands to abort against their will. No mention of the forced choice. The word choice was bandied about but never explained!
    Most of the women looked unhappy and some stated that it had been a very bad experience. Anne Robinson even admitted that she had always refused to visit the experience and think about it. Denial is a common symptom felt after abortion. If there is nothing wrong with abortion why should she need to suppress the experience?
    She inferred that her shame was a throw back to her Catholic upbringing. In fact it is a classic symptom in post-abortion distress.
    Even Dr? Steel was invited to add his comments on how the law is out of date as well as another pro-abortionist claiming she paid £90 for her abortion.

    I will be writing to complain the BBC that’s for sure!

    • Lily,

      In response to my emailed correction, explaining that Glasgow is in Scotland, not England, I received the following sarcastic reply from a Steven Ertelt, editor:

      “Yep, changed to UK.”

      I suppose I can’t complain, really, as I’ve no idea where Lifesitenews is based. Somewhere in Australia, perhaps? Like anybody cares 😀

      Later that same day…

      I’ve received another email from Steven Ertelt, saying that he has, indeed, corrected the typo, to make the text read “Glasgow, Scotland”, and I’ve replied to tell him he is now my hero, or words to that effect! Also, it’s not Lifesitenews, but Lifenews, so, there you go, you read it here first, I DO occasionally make mistakes a mistake…

      All is well, as the saying goes, that ends well… 😀
