113 MPs Demand Laws Which Will Increase Abortions

As one of several moves by Members of Parliament to increase the numbers of abortions in the UK, 113 MPs have asked the Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, to intervene to stop pro-life vigils outside abortion centres.
These MPs in their wisdom, have not made any effort to meet with those women who have chosen life for their babies. They don't know who these women are, they don't care who these women are, or what pressures they face and why they are often very willing to choose life when offered support.
Here is Anna, one of the Mothers we have supported, who changed her mind at an abortion centre talking about the help she received.

And why she thinks help should be offered outside an abortion centre.

If the plans of those 113 MPs were already in place at that time Anna went for her abortion, her child would be dead.
Donate here to help us support Mothers in need. Come and pray at our vigils.

Telling Truths About Pro-Life Vigils

Clare McCullough, founder of the Good Counsel Network, spoke about our work outside abortion centres (in light of Ealing Council's decision to try to ban vigils) on the Emma Barnett radio show on the 11th October 2017.
Note how the host politely asked John from Marie Stopes what pro-lifers attending the vigils do. John went on to claim that people at the vigils, amongst other things, are calling women murderers and physically blocking their access to the clinic. Emma accepts this as being the truth and goes on to say 'Have you seen women coming in to the centre in distress?' To which John replies, 'Yes', and gives more, unsubstantiated allegations, which Emma is quite happy to accept.
Emma then speaks to Clare, and from the start takes up a hostile pro abortion stance, constantly interrupting her, and putting all of the allegations to her as if they were fact. When Clare points out that we never film outside the clinics Emma suggests that evidence to the contrary may emerge, not that she has seen such evidence you understand, and not once did she ask John from the abortion clinic to produce any evidence for his wild accusations. Listen in to see how it went from there.
The Good Counsel Network runs three daily, peaceful prayer vigils outside London abortion centres, in Ealing, Twickenham, and central London. You are welcome to come and join us there in prayer,  (you’re also welcome to come and see the vigils for yourself to see whether John’s accusations are in fact true).
Clare enjoyed her sparring match with Emma, though she was extremely grateful for all those who signed up to pray for her! Media outlets, constantly refuse to speak to women who have been helped by the Good Counsel Network. You can donate to support these mums and their children here. However, at the end of the radio interview, Emma Barnet agreed to  speak to some of the mothers we have helped about our vigils and the ongoing help we provide. You can hear her fulfil this promise (to speak to one mum who turned around, at least) tomorrow morning on Radio 5 Live's "5 Live Daily" (starts 10am) to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Abortion Act. Let's hope she gives her a fair hearing.

Fearless Mum Takes on the "Experts" on Abortion Centre Vigils!

One of the Mothers we have been privileged to serve speaks here about the importance of offering help outside an abortion centre. The other women on the panel claim to speak for women entering the abortion centre, but only Alina speaks about her own actual experience of receiving, and later offering to other women, pregnancy support outside an abortion centre.

Please support our daily peaceful prayer vigils and donate to help us to continue to help those Mothers who are offered nothing except abortion by the other side.

Evidence of Harassment by Pro-Lifers is Non-Existant

We have had little time to fundraise or do so many other urgent things over the last 2 weeks, with constant media interest in our work following Ealing Council's decision to try to ban our peaceful pro-life vigil. Please help us with your prayers and by donating to support our work if you can.

The 50th Anniversary of the Abortion Act is approaching on Friday 27th October, and there is still time to have Mass offered for the end of abortion and in reparation for 50 years of legal abortion, as many of our supporters have already done. (If it can't be said on the date just have it said as soon as you can).

Here is another of Clare's recent media appearances defending peaceful vigils outside abortion centres. Please do consider coming to pray at our vigils, where hundreds of babies have been saved.

A Ban on Pro-Life Help in Ealing?

On Tuesday 10th October, Ealing Council voted in favour of a motion to do all in their legal means to end the peaceful, pro-life vigil outside Marie Stopes Ealing, which has been there for 23 years. This was in response to a petition by a local group Sister Supporter (SS) who have been protesting our vigils for the last 18 months.
If you want a quick reminder of who Sister Supporter are, this would be them in pink, harassing one of our Counsellors and filming the abortion centre entrance. The Good Counsel Network has been holding a daily vigil at Ealing since 2013, but the Helpers and a variety of other groups, have been holding regular vigils there for the last 23 years and more. There has never been a single arrest or charge raised against any of these groups because they do not attend the vigil to harass but to offer women help and to pray. To attend our vigils see details here.

None of Sister Supporter's "evidence" has been shown to the Good Counsel Network to this date, despite Rupa Huq MP offering to forward it on. Nor has a single Councillor contacted Good Counsel, or responded to our request that they speak to some of the Mothers who have sought our help outside Marie Stopes.

Rebutting claims made that pro-lifers harass women, Good Counsel's Director, Clare McCullough has been speaking about the work we do and what really happens at Ealing. Note how those speaking against her continually make unsubstantiated accusations and refuse to provide any evidence from the constantly present cctv cameras at the Marie Stopes Centre.
To provide support and help for the Mothers who are glad we are outside the centres offering help, and who choose life please donate here.
