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

      • 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.

    Written by

    With 40 Days for Life, David wears many hats. Prior to joining the 40 Days for Life team, he was an award-winning radio and TV journalist. He has also served as a board member for a pregnancy help center and as publications director for a major national pro-life organization.

  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

  9. I am very pleased that this thread has been created, its a great idea to have a specific form to discuss the evil of abortion and how to combat it.

    40 Days for Life
    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:

    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,

    International Campaigns
    40 Days for Life

    A really wonderful opportunity for Pro Life people

    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:

    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.

      Thank you for that MPs contact details. It just shows you that the pro-abort people will not allow a penny to get past their scrutiny. They get huge amounts of money but won’t allow a donation to go to the pro-life groups. How vile they are.

  14. Thanks Patricia ……..dear all please sign and share the above Petition as widely as you can the pro death brigade are pulling out all the stops on this one .surely we must do the same ..thank you

    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.

  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:

    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,

    Greg Jackson and the entire Team at CitizenGO

    Today, 11:25
    40 days for life London (;
    Amanda Lewin (;
    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

  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:

    Important new pro-family resource from MassResistance: “The Health Hazards of Homosexuality: What the Medical and Psychological Research Reveals”

    Book detail at

    After several years of research, our book on “The Health Hazards of Homosexuality” is now available. This is the tool that every pro-family activist has been waiting for. With over 500 pages, this book covers virtually every aspect of a subject that is almost universally ignored in today’s popular culture.

    It is published by our pro-family group, MassResistance. The book’s website has the full Table of Contents and chapter excerpts. The book is available in paperback or eBook through Amazon at or

    • 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!

  27. iHope Prayer Vigil Fri 12th May IPPF, Nigeria & Kweku Brenu

    Today, 13:10
    You replied on 07/05/2017 14:10.
    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.

    Couldn’t agree more. Definitely a marriage made in the Other Place.

    • 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.
