The Be Here For Me campaign, by Mothers who have been helped by Pro-Life vigils outside abortion centres has produced an excellent short video which is well worth viewing. https://behereforme.org/

Please have a look at their website and take action to stop the introduction of censorship zones around abortion clinics.

Nurses Supporting Abortion? Not In My Name

March 16, 2018

Nurse or nursing student? Please sign the letter against any RCN move to support the introduction of abortion on demand, for any reason.

Janet Davies, the Chief Executive of the Royal College of Nurses (RCN), has announced that a panel of RCN staff and members will be deciding on a positioning statement for the RCN on the complete removal of all legal restriction and sanctions regarding abortion. If these measures were to be implemented, it would mean the introduction of abortion on demand, for any reason, to at least 28 weeks and possibly up to birth. Ann Furedi, the CEO of abortion provider BPAS, who are running the campaign to ‘decriminalise’ abortion, has made it clear that they are aiming for the latter, the introduction of abortion up to birth. The Royal College of Midwives’ position in support of ‘decriminalisation’, which saw a large public backlash when it was adopted, has subsequently been used extensively by abortion provider BPAS as a key plank in their political lobbying for the introduction of abortion, on demand, for any reason up to birth. Ahead of this panel deciding the position, the RCN are running a ‘survey’ of the RCN membership which does not allow for members of the RCN to vote on the specific wording of the final positioning statement. It instead asks a single question on whether members support or oppose the broad concept of ‘decriminalisation’ and only commits that members’ input will ‘inform’ the work that will lead to the final position this panel will decide on. If you are a nurse or nursing student, please take action by putting your name to the public joint letter (link below) to the Chief Executive of the Royal College of Nurses, Janet Davies, to voice your concern about this extreme move.

How your donations and support have helped

July 19, 2017

Thanks so much for all your support. Over the months of May and June, your donations have been used to support 73 vulnerable families. We have had phone calls from many women in crisis pregnancies needing support. We also had a successful Rachel’s Vineyard retreat, for those suffering after abortion, with 12 participants. We hope to start up a new team in the Dundee area to run Rachel’s Vineyard retreats there too.

We have been blessed to have many individuals coming to the door to donate baby equipment they are no longer in need of. The Amazon wish list, in June, was a big success and we had all of the items we wanted donated! We have had a great response to our appeal for toys this month- thanks to your generosity we have enough toys for the moment and will once again be able to respond to toy requests.

The Knights of St Columba have been brilliant in providing practical support to us- a group from the University came to check, clean and pack cots to be given out. Brian Henry brought a group of Knights to paint the doors of the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative building.

And of course we are ever grateful to our regular volunteers who come to sort through all the donations and make up packs of clothes and toiletries to give out to those in need.

In terms of what we need now, we are well stocked with donations of items and clothing to be sorted through.

If anyone is going to IKEA, please buy some of those big blue bags for us- we use these to package clothing that we give out.

Toys Needed!

July 5, 2017

We are in desperate need of donations of toys, particularly for children under 5 years old. Due to the volume of requests for toys that we receive, our toy stock has been depleted. We are having to turn away requests for toys for children in vulnerable families at the moment, until donations of toys are received. So please, if you are having a clear-out this summer, bring your toys to us! The kind of toys that we need are ones that stimulate a child and encourage development. Usually they do not want soft toys, as the children already have soft toys. We only want good quality toys that are clean, without parts missing and in good working order.

You can bring donations to us at the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative, 104 Albert Road, Crosshill, Glasgow, G42 8DR. We are open on weekdays from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm. Please phone in advance (0141 433 2680) just to check that we are around.

Many thanks in advance for your help. God bless.


Amazon Wish List

June 13, 2017

One of our supporters brought to our attention that Amazon do these wishlists and suggested if there was anything that we were in need of, then why not create a list.
If anyone would like to donate anything from the wishlist to go towards our mums and babies then your help would be greatly appreciated.

Here’s the link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/registry/wishlist/26XEFLEPT276J/ref=cm_wl_list_o_0

Thank you 🙂


Thank you for your donations

May 5, 2017

Thanks so much for all your support. Over the months of March and April, your donations have been used to support 93 vulnerable families.

We have been blessed to have many individuals coming to the door to donate baby equipment they are no longer in need of. Before Easter, the Knights of St Columba (Council 8, Clydebank) donated Easter eggs and we were able to redistribute these. In April we also had a visit from Fr Michael John, parish priest of St James’ Church in St Andrews, who drove over to Glasgow with a van full of items that had been donated by his parishioners.

Items that we are in need of currently are:

Baby baths

Cotton wool

Ikea bags – the big blue ones (we use these to package clothing that we give out)

Prams

Moses baskets

Baby boy outfits for aged 0-3 months (please only donate clean laundered clothing and clearly label the bag ‘BOY 0-3 MONTHS’)
