Comic Relief and its spin off Sport Relief certainly do get the nation’s
charitable juices flowing at this time of year.
It also causes much debate among Catholics as to whether or not we
should be contributing to such a charity and allowing our schools and children
to participate in the fund raising frenzy.
It seems that every year we face the same dilemma, yet the goalposts
haven’t moved for years. Comic Relief (and
Sport Relief) is a charity that gives great cause for concern when it comes to
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.

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
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
40 Days for Life is coming to Scotland
As we prepare to participate in 40 Days for Life for the
first time here in Glasgow it is important to bear in mind a few home truths. Some sections of the media and other groups
in favour of abortion have had their say on the event in recent days and, not surprisingly,
their view on 40 Days for Life is extremely negative.
I would be careful not to take too much note
of the negativity expressed by these groups and individuals. Remember that their interest in this matter is
the polar opposite of ours.
Do you think that preborn baby beavers are deserving of
greater protection than preborn baby humans?
I for one don’t, yet media headlines and public outcries suggest to me
that I am in an increasing minority.
Being a supporter of the right to life for all human beings,
including the youngest and most vulnerable among us, I was deeply disturbed to
see yet another public outcry by one of our mainstream media outlets seeking to
further protect the lives of a species other than Homo sapiens.
40 Days for Life vigil in Little Rock, US
The 40 Days for Life initiative is coming to Glasgow! Between 10th February and 20th March (during the season of Lent) pro-life advocates and supporters are invited to commit to a prayerful vigil outside the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, where abortions are known to take place.
The vigil will be one of quiet, peaceful prayer, without graphic imagery and without any attempts to approach people, unless they approach us.
today to hear that Northern Ireland’s new, and first female, First Minster and leader of the
Democratic Unionist Party Arlene Foster has previously rejected any notion of
extending the UK’s Abortion Act to the
country. It is good to know that there
are people out there who are willing to swim against the tide of liberal
relativism and secularism in order to protect the unborn. Her stance is quite the opposite of Sinn Fein,
a party that sold its soul last year by committing itself to the legalisation
of abortion in the province.
