“I used to be a radical pro-choicer
I was angry at the pro-life club for chalking the messages but I didn’t know why I was angry.
I looked it up on the computer and found very official statistics that confirmed it was true. I was heartbroken because I’ve worked with special needs kids all my life – by choice. They’re already underestimated and discriminated against as it is.
Learning that fact and learning it was true was the catalyst to researching the issue more from both sides.
It took about 6 months before I called myself pro-life.
The more I read the more I learned I had been on the wrong side. I had to admit I was wrong.”
Billie is now involved with uOttawa Students for Life, chalking these same messages on campus. Students across Canada shared the pro-life message through the Chalktober Campus Outreach Campaign this month. Photos to come!
