What a disgusting anniversary today, would you like to help make it beautiful?

The 27th of October 2011 marks the 44th anniversary of Parliament passing the Abortion Act. Since this Act, Which legalised abortion came into effect, over 7 million unborn children have been killed by abortion. The current law allows for abortion to be carried out for purely social reasons up to 24 weeks of pregnancy, and indeed 98% of them are social. That's right, 98% of abortions are not carried out in order to protect the life or health of the mother, nor are they 'required' because of rape or incest. That remaining two percent are however perhaps the most frightening. Disabled children have little hope of entering the post Abortion Act world. In our 'equal' society an unborn child can be killed In Utero right up to birth for simply having a cleft lip. Consider that over nine out of every ten children with Down Syndrome is killed before birth.

Today is an opportunity for reparation.

The Good Counsel Network have called for us to fast and pray to end abortion. I have reposted the message they have sent me - please do what you can, God will do the rest.

Dear friends,

Tomorrow, Thursday 27th October 2011 is the 44th anniversary of the legalization of Abortion becoming Law in this country. In response to this we have chosen this day to be this month’s National Day of Prayer and Fasting for the end of Abortion and Euthanasia. Please join us in this day in one of the following ways:

Fasting

Fast from all food except bread and water for the day
Or
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.

 

Prayer

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


(On account of the late notice it may be a good idea to start the fast 24 hour from this moment).
