Prayers For Life Will Continue — Despite Pro-Abort Violence

Yes, some of those who can't stand a pro-life message are getting violent.
Day 31

1) Ground Zero Report:

On Wednesday night, there was a violent attack on one of our vigilers, a youth co-ordinator from one of our churches. The police were called and are investigating. He is going to the dentist to have work done on his teeth which were damaged in the assault.

Here are two reports from different individuals:

1) Basic details: 2 girls and 2 guys came across the street yelling at the victim and a female companion. One girl started breaking up signs. One guy punched Chris as he attempted to call the police and knocked the phone out of his hands. The female companion who was with the victim then called police. Chris was punched again. They took the signs and umbrellas and dropped them around corner.

2) I don’t know if you know yet, but there was a serious incident last night at the 40 Days for Life vigil. Two young adults were at the vigil site around 2am, when some young men came out of a bar, drunk and starting yelling at the young lady and causing a ruckus. The young man asked them to stop and they beat him up. He was beaten so badly that he requires dental work. He was actually replacing a female friend of his at the vigil. I don’t know if the people involved want their names mentioned. I can find out if I have the opportunity. Suffice to say that I know both of them and I got this information from the young lady’s house mate.
Those thugs and whoever sent them to the Ottawa's "Ground Zero" must be really desperate. Not sure if it's even theoretically possible to find those responsible for the assaults, let alone - bring them to justice. But their assaults won't discourage devoted vigil-keepers. Moreover - prayers for the unborn will continue even after the 40 Day for Life vigil ends:
The spirit of #40Days for Life will live on in Ottawa

A chapter of the Helpers of God's Precious Infants is being set up in Ottawa.

They will pray outside the clinic on abortion days, Wednesday to Friday, from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm.
Way to go, Helpers of God's Precious Infants! I wish you all the best.
