We have had a prayer request, and permission to share this information and photo publically:

Please could you pray for 12-week old Baby Gabriel who has been diagnosed with severe spina bifida, and is currently paralysed from the waist down. This is a picture of the precious gift of life, Gabriel. We boldly approach God’s throne, surrendering the child to God and coming with expectancy for full healing on Gabriel in Jesus’ Name. Amen

So, get praying! And share this information so that others can also pray for baby Gabriel and family.

Respect for Jacob Rees-Mogg

September 14, 2017

Sad to see the media slamming down on a politician’s personal beliefs, when Jacob Rees-Mogg specifically stated that his personal belief in abortion being indefensible and belief in the Catholic faith would not affect democracy or laws in the UK. What an intolerant society we live in. In this environment it was brave for Jacob Rees-Mogg to honestly state his personal belief in the sanctity of life from the moment of conception. His is an example for us all to hold firm in our position when facing hostile questioning.

 

SPUC has written an article contrasting this interview with another by Ann Furedi, the leader of the abortion provider BPAS, who wants to legalise abortion in all circumstances. https://www.spuc.org.uk/news/news-stories/2017/september/whos-the-extremist-jacob-rees-mogg-or-bpas
