Let not the staggering numbers of children killed discourage you. You can make a difference. The Helpers of God's Precious Infants (Ottawa-Gatineau) are working towards building a culture of life one soul at a time by praying and sidewalk counselling at the killing places.
In Ottawa, at the abortuary at 65 Bank St., the killings take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and the occasional Saturday, between 8 am and 4 pm. At least 2350 children are killed there each year. If you have any spare time or are able to reprioritize your commitments, we implore you to be concerned enough about these poor victims - children and their mothers - to make yourself available to them. We have both a civic and Christian responsibility to come to their aid. By participating in sidewalk counselling you can be an instrument of God's love, mercy and peace.
The counsellors will approach the parents as they make their way to the abortion centre. They will offer them information about where to go for free counselling and practical assistance, as well as about:
It is surprising that the mother often has not been given much factual information about what happens in an abortion nor about alternatives to abortion. She probably has never been to a pregnancy help centre, where she would have learned about her child's biological development in her womb, and been helped to understand the details applicable to the various abortion procedures. The counsellor will also attempt to talk to the father of the baby.
If the mother decides to go in to see the abortionist anyway, she will be reminded that we will pray for her and be outside waiting if she, like others before her, changes her mind while she is inside and comes back out again. If she proceeds with the killing of her child, we pray for her conversion and healing.
If you are a new volunteer, please be sure to read the Code of conduct. By registering for the Helpers' peaceful prayer vigil, you are acknowledging that you will agree with and abide by all of the principles in the Code of conduct.
