I see from Mulier Fortis and Maria Stops Abortion that the BPAS have finally decided to close the abortion clinic at Bedford Square.
Much of this must surely be down to the persistance in prayer and practical efforts of pro-life groups and events such as the Forty Days for Life.
It would seem that the BPAS is trying to play down the whole thing by pointing out that they will continue to provide contraception, vasectomies, etc. at Bedford Square, and that the abortions will supposedly move to another of their clinics outside central London. Moving from a prime central location, presumably because it was not profitable, must be signifiant, and hopefully having to travel further out may encourage women to think more carefully about abortion and make a better decision.
What is also certain is that whereever the clinic goes, the vigils and prayers will follow it.
This may be a small step against a monstrous culture of death, but if it results in even a few lives being saved, and a slightly higher profile for the pro-life cause, these must be good things.
Let us thank God for this news, continue to pray that life may be everywhere respected and preserved, and commend to His mercy all those souls who have been robbed of their chance of an earthly life.
