Giving Thanks for Lives Saved

In mid-March, the pro-life club at the University of Saskatchewan hosted a pregnancy support table every day for one week. It was deliberately held one week before the university’s so-called “Pro-Choice Awareness Week.” Not only was the club a life-affirming witness on campus, but their efforts reverberated in the community. During the week, the pro-life team reached out to over 300 students: some had friends who were hurting either after abortion or a miscarriage, 1 was looking to adopt, and 3 were abortion-minded women who thought they were pregnant.

Club members were able to take one of these women to a pregnancy centre, where it was confirmed she was not pregnant. Throughout the journey she felt supported, and began to open up.

Then she told the club about “Anne.”

Anne was a friend of hers. Anne was pregnant, her baby 3 months old at the time. Anne was scheduled for an abortion the following week.

It was March 17th when one club member, Denae, became part of Anne’s story, asking friends, and friends of friends for prayer. Hundreds of people were praying for Anne and her baby. 

On March 21st Denae met Anne, planning to offer to care for the baby if Anne didn’t want to. However, upon meeting Denae, Anne shared that she had woken up on March 18th, and for no explicable reason had changed her mind about abortion.

Denae has encouraged and supported Anne throughout her pregnancy, helping her find a midwife, baby supplies, a local support program

On September 13th a little baby boy entered the world because of the club’s and Denae’s support.

National Child Day 2014

Child-DayThese words, taken from the UN Declaration of the Rights of the Child, are so contradictory to the unrestricted access to abortion in our country. How can this be? More people like you need to speak up for the rights of those who cannot speak for themselves.

Today is National Child Day in Canada. Challenge yourself to speak to at least one person today about the need for our country to protect the youngest of our kind. For it is only in sharing the truth in our words and actions that we can hope to bring light where there is darkness.

uOttawa Students For Life: Adoption – Stronger Because Of It

This post was written for uOttawa Students For Life by uOttawa Students For Life. It does not necessarily represent the views of NCLN.

They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger (cue Kelly Clarkson) and that is even truer when it comes to giving life. Good for this girl for staying strong even when the men in her life tried to pressure her into “choice.”

He sat me down and told me I needed to have an abortion. My whole world came crashing down again. I have never cried so hard. I was lost, and the only man I knew truly loved me was telling me to do the same thing the boy I thought loved me said to do. I stood toe to toe with my father and told him no. I had more respect than that for myself and for God.

(…)

I’m so glad I chose life and gave Brett a chance at a good and happy life. He is a gift to everyone, and even though it was hard, I would never take back the journey I went through. I’m stronger because of it.

Here in Ottawa, FirstPlace Options, Birthright and Miriam Centre can provide information about local adoption services. AdoptioninCanada is a great website with information about the adoption process.

Saint Paul Students for Life: I am a human being

This post was written for Saint Paul Students for Life by fradriansharp. It does not necessarily represent the views of NCLN.

Campaign Life Coalition has launched a new website project: http://www.iamahumanbeing.ca/.

The CLC newsletter explains that:

This important educational tool has been created to support Stephen Woodworth’s private member’s motion (M-312), which seeks to establish a special committee to re-examine Section 223 of Canada’s Criminal Code which states that a child only becomes a human being once he or she has fully proceeded from the womb. Woodworth has called for a full  examination of medical and scientific facts by a committee of parliamentarians and a discussion about how these facts impact our modern understanding of human rights.
