“How a society treats its disabled is the true measure of a civilization.”
– Chen Guangcheng
‘Evil’ Syria……. where induced abortion is a punishable crime
‘Great’ Britain……. where disability is a punishable ‘crime’.
On 30th November, 2017, the Legislative Initiative Committee ‘Stop Abortion’ submitted to the Marshal of the Sejm a draft amendment to Poland’s abortion law. The initiative was supported by a record high number of Poles – as many as 830 thousand people signed their names calling for a change in the law! That equates to approximately 1.4 million people in Britain. The Speaker of the Sejm now has to set the date of the first parliamentary reading within 3 months.
The amendment proposed by the Life and Family Foundation contains a slight change in the wording of the Act, but which will enormous consequences in practice. By deleting from the current abortion law the reason of genetic malformation, i.e. a provision permitting the killing of a child because of suspicion of disability or other genetic condition, it will prevent the vast majority of children being killed. Eugenic reasons for abortion account for 95% of all abortions in Poland. When it comes to numbers, the increase is visible from year to year. In 2015, 1,000 out of the 1044 so-called ‘legal’ abortions were due tio perceived birth defects. And in 2016, genetic defect accounted for 1042 out of 1098 so-called ‘legal’ abortions.
It is also a practice of particular cruelty, because abortion due to a genetic defect is performed at an advanced stage of pregnancy (5-6 months). Another monstrous reality in Polish hospitals is live birth abortion, after which children are left to certain death without any medical help, because the aborters are protected by law. In this way, people with disabilities are still murdered in Polish hospitals with impunity and under protection of the so-called law.
An appeal from John Smeaton of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children.
Dear SPUC Supporter,
I am writing to you about an extremely urgent matter – the latest attack on pro-life vigils. Peaceful, pro-life vigils outside abortion centres and hospitals have saved thousands of babies and their mothers from abortion. But now these life-saving, prayerful vigils are under attack from the highest authority.
On Sunday 26 November 2017, the Home Secretary, Amber Rudd MP, announced a review into “harassment and intimidation near abortion clinics”.
Ms Rudd’s assessment of what actually happens at pro-life vigils is misleading. The outcome of the review has been prejudiced. Please ask your MP to write to Amber Rudd objecting to the terms of this biased review.
To help you write your letter I am attaching:
This Home Office review is a wholly inappropriate response to small numbers of prayerful people who offer leaflets to women. These leaflets let women know where they can get help, which they cannot get anywhere else. Please make this your number one pro-life priority. Nothing is more urgent.
Please send any responses you get from your MP to SPUC.
With my very best wishes,
• Tell them you are totally opposed to Sinn Féin’s abortion policy, and their campaign to legalise abortion is not done in your name as an Irish man or woman
• Tell them you want ALL the children of the nation cherished equally – as stated in the 1916 Easter Proclamation
• Tell them you want Sinn Féin to stop deceiving their constituents by claiming the Party “isn’t in favour of abortion” while supporting abortion-on-demand
• Tell them you will vote in future elections only for candidates who uphold the right to life of unborn children
• Tell them you want both mothers and babies protected from abortion by being given life-affirming options in crisis pregnancies

A petition of more than one million signatories is being handed to President Putin today, calling for a complete and total ban on abortion in Russia. That’s the same as more than half-a-million people in Britain petitioning for a complete ban on abortion, and is the biggest petition to government in Russian history.
The signatures were collected by more than 5,000 activists from the Russian Pro-Life association ‘Za zhizn’ and others.
The Russian Pro-Life Association works hard every day to save unborn children: they advise pregnant women in difficulty, offer economic support and even provide homes for young mothers and destitute families. As well as providing direct support to help mothers keep their babies, they carry out constant cultural and informational activities including conferences, exhibitions, round-tables, and street leafleting.
Our Russian friends are asking for the prayers, moral support and publicity of the pro-life environment around the world on this auspicious day.
Hosted by The Good Counsel Network this can be done at home, at work, in church or wherever you are throughout the day.
“On Friday 17th November, the Vigil of the Dedication of the Basilica of Ss Peter and Paul, please pray and fast for the end of abortion and euthanasia.
Fast from all food except bread and water for the day
Fast from a particular food or luxury, e.g. chocolate, alcohol, cigarettes, TV.
Fast from whatever you can, given your state of health etc, but make sure it is something that involves a sacrifice to yourself.
We are asking people to say a Rosary (or an extra Rosary if you say it daily already).
You could also offer an extra effort such as going to Mass (or an extra Mass) on the day, or going to Adoration. You can even pray before a closed tabernacle if Adoration is not available near you.”
