Women and Men Speak Up on B.C. Campuses About Their Abortion Experience
Langley, B.C. (March 14, 2014): From March 17th to 21st, women and men of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign will be speaking on seven B.C. campuses, publicly sharing their own experiences of abortion.
The purpose of these events and of the Campaign is to provide women and men with an opportunity to share the difficulties that they faced after having an abortion, to reach out to those who may be suffering, and to let people know there is help available.
“Our goal is to reach out to men and women who have experienced abortion in their life and to let them know that they are not alone in their pain and grief,” says Angelina Steenstra, the National Director of the Campaign. Angelina Steenstra will be sharing her own abortion experience, which took place after date rape at the age of 15. She will be joined by other men and women who will sharing their testimonies of their experience with abortion.
“Most abortions are performed on women who are of the university age,” explains Anastasia Pearse, Western Campus Coordinator for the National Campus Life Network (NCLN). NCLN has assisted B.C. campus pro-life clubs with the coordination of the campus tour. “It is critical to bring this message to women before they make a choice they may regret, and to speak of hope and healing to those who are suffering in the aftermath of an abortion.”
The Campaign will be at the Universities of British Columbia and Victoria, as well as Trinity Western, Simon Fraser and Kwantlen Polytechnic Universities, and Columbia Bible College. A community presentation will also be held at Comox Recreation Centre on March 21st.
