This year is the 50th anniversary of the passing of the 1967 Abortion Act in the UK. Sr Roseann is answering 50 questions about abortion, to mark the 50th anniversary.

Question 26: “What does the abortion procedure involve?”

 

 


Thanks so much for all your support. Over the months of May and June, your donations have been used to support 73 vulnerable families. We have had phone calls from many women in crisis pregnancies needing support. We also had a successful Rachel’s Vineyard retreat, for those suffering after abortion, with 12 participants. We hope to start up a new team in the Dundee area to run Rachel’s Vineyard retreats there too.

We have been blessed to have many individuals coming to the door to donate baby equipment they are no longer in need of. The Amazon wish list, in June, was a big success and we had all of the items we wanted donated! We have had a great response to our appeal for toys this month- thanks to your generosity we have enough toys for the moment and will once again be able to respond to toy requests.

The Knights of St Columba have been brilliant in providing practical support to us- a group from the University came to check, clean and pack cots to be given out. Brian Henry brought a group of Knights to paint the doors of the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative building.

And of course we are ever grateful to our regular volunteers who come to sort through all the donations and make up packs of clothes and toiletries to give out to those in need.

In terms of what we need now, we are well stocked with donations of items and clothing to be sorted through.

If anyone is going to IKEA, please buy some of those big blue bags for us- we use these to package clothing that we give out.

The effects of abortion on women are recognised and frequently discussed. Men are dismissed as irrelevant to the abortion decision and procedure. However, many men are broken by losing their child through abortion. This article tells a few of their stories:

Congratulations to Fr Bernard Mourinan, Fr John-Paul McShane, Fr Jim Dean and Fr Jonathon Whitworth, who have all been ordained to the priesthood in the last week, in the Dioceses of Motherwell, Glasgow and Paisley. There has been much celebration and joy. Around the feast of St Peter and St Paul (29th June) is a time of year when it is popular for priests to be ordained. Many priests are also celebrating the anniversary of their ordination around this time. We congratulate them all, keep them in our prayers and thank them for their service to the Church.
