Recently in our state of Victoria a Bill has been introduced in our Parliament to enforce exclusion zones around abortion clinics. This Bill introduced by the Sex Party’s Ms Fiona Patten (not surprising) seeks to remove from around the abortion clinic members of the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants who pray daily and offer help to those entering the clinic if they wish to receive the help. Many babies have been saved because these people have been there through summer and winter and year round and offer a hand to those who may have just needed someone to walk with them through a difficult time in this crisis pregnancy.
They have at times sent women to me and I have spoken to them and helped them to decide against abortion and I know that there are 20 little ones running around because of help I personally have given. One of the little ones is my very precious God son. So those helped are very real.
Imagine the wickedness which would try and prevent peaceful offers of help or presence outside this house of death.
You know the thing that has amazed me most of all through this is the lies that have been told about the “protestors” or as we know them the Helpers. The media play right into the hands and do the bidding of the abortion clinic. Why? Why is it important for the media to be so biased?
Even in news services why speak about “protestors” in the negative tone who “have been there for 20 years” the reporters imply that they harass and call out “vile” names to those going into the clinic.
On the day that the Bill was introduced the Lord Mayor Mr Doyle was on radio and was asked about the group and he called the “helpers” “vile” 7 times in the space of 2 minutes. I was driving and unable to do much but I am of the opinion that he should be visited and his opinion clarified about what is and who is and is not “vile.” I felt deeply wounded as he called these holy people “vile” and I really understood how friends of Jesus must have felt.
