"Were You There?" God

It is always a bit strange praying and counselling outside an abortuary, but this being marie stopes house makes it weird. At marie stopes house about every 15 minutes or so a pregnant women walks past you on her way to have her baby killed by what our society calls a doctor! The women going in have been warned by the abortuary (some with metal health problems will say 'clinic') that there may be protesters outside, but that it is best not to talk to them! Too right! After all, if we offer them the help they need to avoid the abortion and keep their child, the abortuary will be down between £400 and £1000!

On a good day a few of the women take a leaflet offering help, if they are just having a consultation they will still have time to read the leaflet, reflect and listen to God in their heart. Some will stop and talk and then go in and some will turn around. But only when we die and meet God face to face will we know the full results of our prayers and sacrifices in being there. How many women see us (you) praying outside and just go home? I think that the saddest thing is that most pregnant women going to an abortuary find no one outside offering them any real alternative and support. When those women stand in front of God they will answer for the life of their child, as will the 'doctor' and those around the woman who should have helped her keep the child....... but as you quite rightly point out lector, the Bishops and the Priests will be asked why they were not there, but God will not ask me about the Bishop or the Priest, he will ask me what I did, just as He will ask us all......

  1. That reminds me of Dr Halliday Sutherland, the great layman who challenged Marie Stopes in the courts and, sadly, lost.
    We should not forget his efforts.
