March for Life 2012

Tomorrow, tens of thousands of pro-lifers from across Canada will march for life, assembling at their provincial and national legislatures in protest of the injustice of abortion. NCLN and its students will be at many of these events.

There were over 15,000 gathered at last year’s National March for Life in Ottawa, and NCLN hopes to see even more at this year’s event. You can find the NCLN group on the right lawn – look for our banner or that of uOttawa Students for Life! After the March there are many other events to be involved in. NCLN is hosting our annual student dinner, which is SOLD OUT! If you didn’t get a ticket this year, don’t worry, there is always next year! Executive Director, Rebecca Richmond is also speaking to hundreds of students at the youth conference on Friday.

If you are unable to attend the National March, there are regional Marches across the country that may be closer to home for you. Visit Campaign Life Coalition to find out where the March for Life is taking place in your community.

NCLN will also have a presence in two other locations. Sara Hall, as the Maritime Campus Coordinator, will be in Halifax to speak at their March, and at the other end of the country, Anastasia, our Western Campus Coordinator, will be speaking to the crowds at the March for Life in Victoria, BC. If you can find us at any of these three locations come say “Hi” – we would love to meet you!

uOttawa Students For Life: Post-grad pro-life activism tips

So the school year is upon us and maybe this is the first year you aren’t going back to the grind. What is your role in the pro-life movement now?
Here are a few ideas:
-Get involved in projects with Action Life or Campaign Life Coalition; there are events that take place through the year that need planning and advertising.
-Volunteer to speak in front of high school students.
-Offer to mentor new members in the pro-life club that you were part of.
-Participate in the 40 Days for Life campaign taking place from Sept. 28 to Nov. 6 in Ottawa in front of the abortion clinic on Bank St.
-If you are involved with a faith group, volunteer to steer the pro-life committee.
-Support pro-life organizations financially.
Remember that the people you work with might need a listening ear and someone to explain the pro-life message to them. So stay up to date with pro-life apologetics!

uOttawa Students For Life: Why are you pro-life?

In the federal election debates, no one even so much as mentioned the word “abortion.” And Harper has explicitly said that he will oppose any motion or bill that reopens the abortion debate. However, this does not mean that there is no point in voting pro-life. It is important to ensure the rights of unborn children and the rights of pregnant women are respected and protected in this county. For more information on elections and pro-life issues, see Campaign Life Coalition’s election page.

Live Action recently asked on their Facebook page, “In ten words or less, why are you pro-life?” Here are the highlights of some of the responses they got.  My personal favourite: “As a former fetus, I oppose abortion.”

May we never forget our most humble roots and continue to stand up for the thousands and millions of unborn children, our human brothers and sisters, who lose their lives to abortion.

Remember why you are pro-life. Vote on May 2, 2011.
