Have you ever wondered what actually happens in an abortion? What does it look like? The official term used by the Ministry of Health and District Health Boards is “termination of pregnancy” or TOP. Another term is “removal of the products of conception”. What is the reality behind the bland terminology? It is possible to discover the truth about what really happens in an abortion on Voice for Life’s new website: The revamped website has a section under the heading “Abortion” where the various techniques are described in detail, including a description by former US abortionist Dr Levantino testifying to Congress. There is a prominent warning that this section on abortion is not suitable for children. The pictures tell the story. Medical scientific illustrations in colour reveal how first, second and third trimester abortions are performed. These pictures show the grisly medical reality behind the soothing bureaucratic euphemism of “removal of the products of conception”. The next question is whether one should just get upset, or resolve to join those working to end this evil shedding of innocent blood.

Mothers' Prayers group
Mothers Prayers was formed to help those mothers who wished to pray together for their children and grandchildren and to find the support they needed.  It began in England and has now spread across the world.  There  have been many answers to prayer, many miracles as a result of this gentle ministry.
A group usually meets for about an hour to pray for children, grandchildren, other family members, and other needs where appropriate.  
A Mothers Prayers group meets in St Columba's Parish Centre after 9 am Mass on Tuesdays.  We begin with a cuppa, and begin the prayer at 10am.  If you would like to know more about this ministry, or would like to borrow the DVD and books about it, please contact Christine on 07 846 2691, or join us any week you are free.
