The Helpers of God's Precious Infants, which helped to shut down the Aradia clinic on Capitol Hill a few years ago, organizes vigils at the Madison St. Planned Parenthood. These vigils are not organized by the Knights of Columbus.
The Facebook page for SCD describes the group as,"...a grassroots group dedicated to comprehensive, medically-accurate, shame-free and affordable reproductive care for all."
Curiously, many of the contributors to this Facebook page seem unaware of the scientific fact that a live human being exists at conception. To abort such an organism is to kill a human being. No evidence has ever been provided by this group or any other to prove otherwise.
When Matt Ulrich, the Helpers local director, was asked to comment about the possibility of protesters confronting his group he responded by saying, "Whenever you do God's will for the right reason, and are vulnerable at the abortion site, you accept whatever the opposition has to alter your prayer efforts, and to disturb your peaceful presence. I welcome the challenge to defend life no matter what the costs, and to continue always to stand up for
According to several Facebook postings the group seemed wildly enthusiast for abortion but indifferent to the damaging effects abortion and contraceptives have on women. SCD did not respond to a request posted on their Facebook page for an interview about their group.
In addition to closing down the Aradia abortion mill, The Seattle Helpers have been quite successful outside the Everett Planned Parenthood helping women not only to carry their babies to term but also warning women about the dangerous side effects of contraceptives. They have also provided information on post-abortion healing through Project Rachel. Statistics show that almost half of the women seeking abortion will be obtaining a second, third or fourth abortion.
The Helpers along with the 40 Days for Life Campaign have been responsible for saving countless lives and shutting down many abortion centers across the world. Several abortionists and former abortion workers have also been converted by their work and now help to save lives instead of ending them.
The next Helpers vigil will be Saturday August 13th.
