Pro-Life Movement on Newsnight

May 19, 2018

The first 16 minutes of a Newsnight programme last week (10th May) looked at some groups in the pro-life movement in the UK, as well as looking at the pro-choice side and discussing the idea of buffer zones. Worth a watch and, although the pro-choice representatives are not questioned in the same way that the pro-life representatives are, it is still good to see both sides rather than the often very biased reporting against pro-life.

‘Lifeline’ change name, no longer pro-life

September 1, 2017
Recently there has been same coverage in the press about Lifeline and its proposed name change (  The following is a response I made to the article in the Scottish Catholic Observer:

It is indeed a great shame that a group with such a pro-life and Catholic history should feel it necessary to remove the word life from its name because “the word life has become toxic”.

Even more worrying is the statement “but Lifeline doesn’t mean pro-life, we’re non-judgemental”. Here at the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative we are very proud to be pro-life and are certainly not, nor ever have been, judgemental.

More importantly, everyone should be aware that Lifeline can no longer expect the support of the Catholic and Pro-Life communities, not because of their proposed name change but because of the direction they have now chosen to take.

The Lifeline website states under their ‘where to get help’ tab, “If we are not open or able to provide the appropriate support, we recommend the following agencies.” Top of their list is the Chambers Street Sexual Health Centre which, among its services clearly stated on the Lifeline website, is “can refer for abortion”.

Please read and share as I wouldn’t want anyone to be compromised in giving support to this now, no longer, pro-life group.

Since The Cardinal Winning Prolife Initiative first started in 1997, we have been fortunate to have received many, many kind donations which have sustained the initiative through the ups and downs of the helping women with crisis pregnancies.

However, we have now reached the point when we are struggling to cope with the donations of clothes and  bric-a-brac that are handed into the centre.  Therefore we are asking if for the foreseeable future could the donations of clothes and bric-a-brac cease until further notice please.  We will only be accepting donations of TOYS AND BABY EQUIPMENT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Many thanks for your understanding in this matter.
