We have had a prayer request, and permission to share this information and photo publically:

Please could you pray for 12-week old Baby Gabriel who has been diagnosed with severe spina bifida, and is currently paralysed from the waist down. This is a picture of the precious gift of life, Gabriel. We boldly approach God’s throne, surrendering the child to God and coming with expectancy for full healing on Gabriel in Jesus’ Name. Amen

So, get praying! And share this information so that others can also pray for baby Gabriel and family.

Sad to see the media slamming down on a politician’s personal beliefs, when Jacob Rees-Mogg specifically stated that his personal belief in abortion being indefensible and belief in the Catholic faith would not affect democracy or laws in the UK. What an intolerant society we live in. In this environment it was brave for Jacob Rees-Mogg to honestly state his personal belief in the sanctity of life from the moment of conception. His is an example for us all to hold firm in our position when facing hostile questioning.

 

SPUC has written an article contrasting this interview with another by Ann Furedi, the leader of the abortion provider BPAS, who wants to legalise abortion in all circumstances. https://www.spuc.org.uk/news/news-stories/2017/september/whos-the-extremist-jacob-rees-mogg-or-bpas

Recently there has been same coverage in the press about Lifeline and its proposed name change (http://www.lifelinecounselling.org/news/).  The following is a response I made to the article in the Scottish Catholic Observer:

It is indeed a great shame that a group with such a pro-life and Catholic history should feel it necessary to remove the word life from its name because “the word life has become toxic”.

Even more worrying is the statement “but Lifeline doesn’t mean pro-life, we’re non-judgemental”. Here at the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative we are very proud to be pro-life and are certainly not, nor ever have been, judgemental.

More importantly, everyone should be aware that Lifeline can no longer expect the support of the Catholic and Pro-Life communities, not because of their proposed name change but because of the direction they have now chosen to take.

The Lifeline website states under their ‘where to get help’ tab, “If we are not open or able to provide the appropriate support, we recommend the following agencies.” Top of their list is the Chambers Street Sexual Health Centre which, among its services clearly stated on the Lifeline website, is “can refer for abortion”.

Please read and share as I wouldn’t want anyone to be compromised in giving support to this now, no longer, pro-life group.
