Here’s what’s in store on the campuses over the next couple of weeks!
Over 15 campuses will be hosting public screenings of the ‘It’s A Girl’ documentary. The film talks about the impact of gendercide and sex-selective abortion, specifically in India and China. Mark Warawa (MP – Langley) will also speak on Motion 408 following the B.C. screenings.
Here are the screenings dates coming up in the next few week with links to their Facebook event page. Check one out at a campus in your area and keep coming back to this page for screenings being added!
TheDefendGirls campaign has gotten off to a great start, with more campuses using these resources to raise awareness on sex-selective abortion, gendercide, and to build support for Motion 408.
Queen’s Alive distributed DefendGirls materials last week, screened, ‘It’s A Girl’, and will be hosting a Euthansia Debate on March 13th, featuring Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition and Dr. Udo Schuklenk, a philosophy professor. They will address the question, “Should assisted suicide and/or voluntary euthansia be decriminalized in Canada?”
University of Waterloo Students for Life will be doing a number of events for their Life Weeks, including having the Silent No More Awareness Campaigngive personal testimonies on the hope and healing found after having an abortion, and inviting Stephen Woodworth (MP, Kitchener Centre) to speak on Motion 312 on March 13th. Check out the details on the outcome of this event here.
NCLN’s Executive Director, Rebecca Richmond, will be speaking to Brock Life-Line in St. Catharines on the impact of sex-selective abortion and gendercide in our world and our country. She will also expand on Motion 408 and what campuses can do to raise awareness and build support for the motion.
We are excited for all these events, and more! Further details to come on the ‘It’s a Girl’ documentary screenings and other events! Stay tuned!
One incredibly important way to support Motion 408 is to collect signatures for the petition in favour of the Motion. There are specific rules in place concerning petitions which, if not followed, would result in signed petitions being rejected by the Clerk of Petitions. As such we urge you to be aware of the rules and to use the official petition from Mark Warawa’s website.
Also, be aware that a petition cannot be presented in the House unless it has 25 signatures (which, for Mr. Warawa’s petition, would consist of 5 pages with 5 signatures each). Please still send in your petitions even if you’re short a few signatures. The MP can hold onto it until enough additional signatures come in and then group them together.
So go print off copies of the petition and get started!
