A Walk For Life (As Opposed To A March...)

It's actually a sponsored walk, in aid of the Good Counsel Network. They do absolutely amazing stuff, giving real support to women in crisis pregnancies, many of whom would consider abortion to be their only option. Unfortunately, this support is not cheap, and there is no government help - there is, of course, plenty of money in the NHS to support abortion, but not to support mothers who want to keep their babies.

I received a message asking if I could advertise this...
Please come on Good Counsel’s Annual Wandsworth to Wapping Sponsored Walk... Good Counsel urgently need your help raising funds. Yet again this year we have broken all previous records for the number of pregnant women, planning to have an abortion, that we have counselled. This number has been rapidly increasing every year for a few years now. This means that we have been graced with the opportunity to counsel more Mothers than ever before and with the help of God save a greatly increased number of innocent unborn lives. This is very happy news, but means that our finances are stretched further than ever before.
When we are counselling women in order to help them to choose life for their child we offer them all the emotional, practical and moral support which is necessary for them to have the confidence to continue with their pregnancy. The emotional and moral support can take up hours of our time but in general does not cost very much. The practical support is much harder, and can include accommodation/help with rent, direct financial help to provide essentials such as food and clothes, legal advice, travel assistance to get to doctors/midwives appointment etc. etc. This is a huge burden upon us but it is vital that we are able to continue to offer this to all of the pregnant Mothers we see...
It is vital that we can raise the funds necessary to continue to offer this “safety net”. Our next big fundraising effort is our Annual Wandsworth to Wapping Sponsored Walk which is approx. 13 miles long and is on Saturday July 20th (starting with Mass at 10am and finishing at approximately 4pm with drinks and refreshments) and we want to get as many people as possible to join us and raise sponsorship for our lifesaving work. For more details please see our website.
If you're not able to manage the walk, perhaps you can donate some money to the cause, either through the direct PayPal link, or through the Just Giving charity page. There is even a postal address given on the Good Counsel page for old-fashioned cheques, as well as details on how to arrange standing orders and legacies.

Finally, cases like the one of Dr. Gosnell highlight just how evil abortion is. Don't forget that the Good Counsel Network relies on prayer and fasting to support its work in combating it.
