...the most important thing to happen outside of an abortion clinic is for people to be there in prayer. When a pregnant woman in difficulty approaches the abortion clinic and she sees people praying outside the mill, whether as part of the large prayer Vigil or in a follow up prayerful presence or as individual counselors praying, the pregnant woman immediately, consciously or subconsciously thinks of God. God is made present through your prayerful presence. And the existence of her hidden unborn baby, the potential victim, whose existence our society forgets or denies, is also made present through your prayerful presence. Moreover your prayers are obtaining from God for the frightened mothers the trust and courage to choose life for their unborn children. To be effective the prayers and the counselors also need each other and should act as one.

This little one needs you!
How badly do you want to see the end of abortion? Are you willing to sacrifice an hour each month, or even each week, to come to the killing centre to pray and take a stand against the Culture of Death?
One distinctive element that set the early Christians apart from the pagans was the fact that they would rescue babies who were left out to die. They took on the responsibility of raising the children that were unwanted by their pagan neighbours and in a few generations, changed the culture around them.
In our day, the children are not left to die where we can find them. They are killed in their mothers' wombs. Yet, we are not powerless. We can be there, offering hope and love to these mothers. We are maintining a prayerful presence on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Please consider giving up one hour of your time and register for this most important prayer vigil at : http://helpersottawa.org/ (just click on the "Vigil registration" link).
