Quick Father, Check Your Porch!

A young lady phoned us recently and asked for an appointment. We offered her a time and a day but she said she could not come at that time because she was going for an abortion that day. However, she said that she had really wanted to speak to someone beforehand if possible. We juggled our schedule and were able to see her later that day. She told us she had seen a poster in the porch of her local Catholic Church which said “Pregnant, Worried?” and which also had our phone number on it.

When he found she was pregnant, her boyfriend of 5 months informed her that she would have to get an abortion, as he had no intention of marrying her. His family back home were currently looking for a wife for him. She had first seen our phone number before realising she was pregnant. Having now booked an abortion under pressure from him and against her own wishes, she then decided to go back to her parish, make a note of our phone number and call us. By the Grace of God she has gladly accepted our offer of help and is now planning to keep her baby.
Every year thousands of women who go to Mass regularly also sadly go for abortions. It is vitally important that every Catholic Church’s porch has posters, leaflets and other contact details for women facing a difficult pregnancy. The parish newsletter should also have pro-life telephone numbers and websites (02077231740 http://www.goodcounselnetwork.com/ ). If your parish does not have posters, leaflets etc. please contact us and we will provide them. One Parish Priest in North London, unbeknown to himself, saved a Baby's life with a poster and four drawing pins!
