As taxpayers we contribute to 91% of all abortions in the UK. Our money is used to assist in the killing of innocent children which in turn causes immeasurable pain and suffering to mothers.
We want our money better spent on helping both women and their babies to live.

Gospel (Matthew 16:13-19):
‘When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi
he put this question to his disciples, ‘Who do people say the Son of Man is?’
And they said, ‘Some say he is John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others
Jeremiah or one of the prophets.’ ‘But you,’ he said ‘who do you say I am?’
Then Simon Peter spoke up, ‘You are the Christ,’ he said ‘the Son of the living
God.’ Jesus replied, ‘Simon son of Jonah, you are a happy man! Because it was
not flesh and blood that revealed this to you but my Father in heaven.
Pope Francis didn't just talk about Donald Trump's value as a Christian and contraception on his latest flight home to Rome. There is so much more that the mainstream media has failed to cover. So here it is....the stuff you probably haven't yet heard about:
Pope Francis on paedophilia in the Church and the part
played by Pope Benedict XVI to eradicate it:
“First, a bishop who moves a
priest to another parish when a case of pedophilia is discovered is a reckless
[inconsciente] man and the best thing he can do is to present his resignation.
in-flight interview, yet another media frenzy.
It seems that every time Pope Francis takes to the skies there is more
and more controversy, particularly from those who seem to have a strange
interest in changing Church teaching.
time one of the more interesting comments from the Holy Father was on the
subject of contraception. The pope was
asked a question about the Zika virus and whether abortion [as the lesser of
two evils] or avoiding pregnancy would be acceptable courses of action for women
Some people may well believe that there is some sort of war
of words brewing between Pope Francis and the outspoken Republican Presidential
hopeful Donald Trump. Trump hasn’t shied
away from criticising the pope’s recent visit to Mexico, suggesting that the
pope doesn’t appreciate the problems of an open border between the United
States and Mexico. He has also claimed
that the pontiff is becoming a “political person”.
What Trump doesn’t appreciate is that, while the pope may
not appreciate the perceived difficulties Trump has with the lack of a concrete
wall between Mexico and the US, he does appreciate the need for unity over
division, even when this means we may lose a little as a result.
I was surprised to see a story about St John Paul the Great
high up the BBC headline charts when I looked at the their news website this
morning. The headline read ‘Intense John
Paul II Letters Revealed’. I thought for
a moment that the BBC had gone soft by perhaps agreeing to reveal some letters
written by the pope on matters of faith and his work in the Church. But then I clicked on the headline and it all
became very clear.
The full title of the ‘story’ is ‘John Paul letters reveal ‘intense’
friendship with woman’.
A number of weeks ago I saw a great post on Facebook about
making up gift bags for the homeless. I
followed this up with my own post on the matter and it was warmly
welcomed. But as with a lot of these
things the impetus faded and I never really got things properly off the ground.
But thank goodness for Lent!
The season for getting up off my backside and actually doing something
positive for those in need is here and I feel the need to respond. Our call to help the poor is, of course, a
year round one but Lent is a great time to really kick-start a new
Gospel (Luke 9:22-25):
to his disciples: ‘The Son of Man is destined to suffer grievously, to be
rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes and to be put to death,
and to be raised up on the third day.’
Then to all he said, ‘If anyone wants to be a follower of
mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross every day and follow me.
For anyone who wants to save his life will lose it; but anyone who loses his
life for my sake, that man will save it. What gain, then, is it for a man to
have won the whole world and to have lost or ruined his very self?
N Ireland is more pro-life than the rest of the UK
The Northern Ireland Assembly has voted against the
relaxation of abortion law in the country.
Members voted 59-40 against the proposal to allow for terminations in
cases of fatal foetal abnormality and by 64-30 in cases of rape and incest.
This is a real positive for the pro-life cause and shows
that all is not lost in the western world when it comes to protecting the life
of the child in the womb.
a termination is only permitted in Northern Ireland if a woman's life is at
risk or if there is a risk of permanent and serious damage to her mental or
