Pro-Life Witness

The monthly Pro-Life prayer vigil took place today, from 3 to 4pm, in its usual location at the main entrance to the John Radcliffe Hospital. The 'JR' is the only place in Oxford where abortions take place. Ironically, the JR has been in the news in its other role, of saving babies: a Russian woman with quintuplets who was told by her Russian doctors to abort some of them delivered them all safely, by Caesarian section, there last week.

These Witnesses are the initiative of Mrs Amada Lewin; the first tool place in March this year. This one was well attended despite the cold; 25 people stood outside to pray 15 decades of the Rosary 'in reparation for abortion and for all unborn babies and their mothers and fathers', led by Fr John Saward of SS Gregory and Augustine, while others remained in the Church of St Anthony of Padua, where the Blessed Sacrament was exposed. The group included Fr Jeremy Davies, from Luton. At the end of the Rosary we all went into the Church and Fr Saward blessed the people with the Blessed Sacrament.There will be no Witness in December; the next dates are
26th January
23rd February
29th March
