And no-one stops them protesting, therefore they are not persecuted for their beliefs.

The Pro life group suffer insults from passers by when on a life chain in October ( I have been on more than one of them) but that is par for the course.
Nevertheless, Linda Gibbons is more effective as she saves lives directly. And she is persecuted because of an 18 year old bubble order which was supposed to be temporary.Our laws are unfair.I am on a strange computer at present belonging to my son-in-law at his house celebrating father's day. So I AM OFF THE BOARD FOR NOW. :shock:

She ought to be locked up just for that truly emetic slogan on her placard.

I think it's not as black or white an issue as most here seem to think. One time when I had an abortion because welfare had made it clear that I'd lose my three children if I had any more, one of the saddest things about that day was hearing the reasons given by other girls/women there - I have a trip overseas planned, I'm studying, etc. I can only conclude that many women would reach a stage when their lives become hollow and they think - this is what I killed for? No amount of material success will ever fill that hole.
I don't know what any of you would have done if faced with losing your children.
Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.

What a heartless welfare office.Linda Gibbons had an abortion at one stage of her life.Like you she turned to Christianity for comfort.God does bring good out of evil.

(Unlike many conservatives politically, I do not complain about welfare, and as long as God gives me two toonies ($4.00) in my pocket, I give it to the first person begging outside the church, as I did this morning).Others do the same thing in our parish.
