It is now December and that means our annual baby shower and Christmas social! We will be collecting items to help First Place Pregnancy Centre, which offers compassionate support and assistance to women facing unplanned pregnancies. The event itself takes place on Saturday, December 4th from 6:30pm to 11:00pm at Café Alt (in the basement of Simard). There will be fun activities, awesome people, and good food.  However, if you aren’t able to come out to the event, you can also drop off your donations at the Clubs Coordinator office, in the UCU room 030A (in the basement of the university centre). Suggested donations: diapers, diaper cream and wipes, maternity wear, baby clothing (especially for winter and for boys), nursing privacy shields and pacifiers.

 Hope to see you there!

uOttawa Students For Life: Adoption Awareness Month

I’m very excited about November being Adoption Awareness Month because as a pro-life group, we talk about choosing life instead of abortion, but we don’t typically talk as much about adoption specifically. Just the other day, I found a great new site: adoptionincanada.ca There is information about how adoption works and testimonials of mothers who have placed their babies for adoption. Even in my own community, I know several people who were adopted and are very grateful to their birth mothers for the gift of life and a loving family. Adoption is not easy, but it’s a choice that both mom and baby can live with.

Adoption Campaign Launches

An adoption campaign has launched, providing information and resources for women who may be facing an unexpected pregnancy.

As the website mentions,

“How many women in Canada choose adoption? Over 60% of pregnancies result in the woman choosing to parent and 40% end in abortion, but only 2% of all pregnancies will lead to an adoption. The unfortunate truth is that many people have not heard about the many positive results of adoption, and don’t know about the help that is available for mothers-to-be who go through the adoption process.”

This campaign features:

The campaign also debunks myths about adoption, demonstrating that adoption is not abandonment, deception or an unbearable sacrifice.

Anastasia Bowles, the project director, in an interview for Lifesitenews.com stated:

“Birth parents deserve all of the information available about this choice [adoption],” said project director, Anastasia Bowles. “They need to know that times have changed. They need to know that open adoption — where the birth parents select the adoptive families and negotiate future contact and involvement — is common practice today. They need to know that there is help for them and there are people who will support them.”

“We hope to change attitudes with this campaign,” Bowles added, saying that adoption is a “difficult, but heroic, choice.” She lamented the fact that in the past “adoptions were secret, shame-filled proceedings,” and that “adoptees and adoptive parents often suffer due to painful misconceptions and negative stereotypes.”
