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!
It feels so surreal to call myself a member of the NCLN staff! Through my three years at Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Academy, and even during high school, NCLN has been a huge support for me in guiding the pro-life groups that I led, and the staff continue to be great role models for me in the Pro-Life Movement. They provided me with continual advice, resources, strategies and encouragement as our pro-life club worked together to be active and successful in spreading the pro-life message. I could not be more thankful for their assistance through the years.
As of September, I will be working with Anastasia Pearse, NCLN’s Western Campus Coordinator, as I attend Trinity Western University in Langley, B.C., and I can hardly wait! I’ve always felt a strong call to be active in the pro-life movement, and working for NCLN is an incredible way for me to help bring the pro-life message to where its needed most: university campuses. These students are in desperate need of the pro-life message, as the truth about abortion is so often hidden. With NCLN, I am able to dedicate myself to this need by working with campus leaders, encouraging them and guiding them towards building a culture that respects the dignity of life, as we grow as leaders together.
I am so blessed to have this opportunity to work with NCLN, but the position will only be made possible with your help in support raising my salary. If you would like to support the Pro-Life Movement by donating to my position, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit ncln.ca/donate!
