The Good Counsel Network holds two daily, peaceful Prayer Vigils near London abortion 'clinics'
A vigil is a prayerful presence near abortion clinics. While one designated person offers help to women coming for an abortion, all the others attending remain in constant prayer for the women, their children, the abortuary staff and the other people involved in her decision. Join us today so that no woman goes through an abortion at this place without an offer of help and without prayer being offered for her and her child. If you are sick, housebound or cannot attend between these hours, please pray and/or fast for the success of the vigil.
All vigil volunteers are required to sign a statement of peace stating that they will behave in a non aggressive and non violent manner outside the abortion centres. Please view that statement here.

Rosslyn Road, Twickenham - currently suspended
BPAS in Twickenham is in a building that was formerly a hostel run by Catholic nuns. We were running a third vigil outside 15 Rosslyn Road, East Twickenham, Middlesex, TW1 2AR. Richmond Council have introduced a PSPO, a buffer zone, and our vigil is stopped there at the moment. Please pray that the planned court case again Richmond Council's PSPO will be successful so that we can resume our life saving vigil. See more details on our blog here.
