Alberta signature campaign a success

The Alberta Signature Campaign, planned to coincide with Edmonton's Respect for Life Week, was a huge success. Paid advertisements were inserted in six Alberta dailies. The ads consisted of 37,824 lines of names of those supporting the right lo life of every individual from conception to natural death. This figure is even more impressive than it appears. People signed as individuals or as families, so it is no exaggeration to say there are an estimated 40,000 Albertans represented. Pro-abortion groups tried unsuccessfully ... (Continue reading)

The sleeping giant roused

Abortion propaganda in the early seventies used to fire off the slogan that only the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church opposed abortion. The last decade has proven them wrong. Abortion is a grass roots issue. It is also a Protestant one. Unfortunately though, the majority of evangelical Protestants have remained silent for too long. We have played into the hands of the abortionists. We have all too often abandoned the struggle (if we have engaged in it at all) ... (Continue reading)

The R.E.A.L. Women of Canada Realistic, Equal, Active, for Life

On Mother's Day this year we celebrated the birth of a special Canadian baby. Small but vocal, like all newborns, this child represents the true women's movement. This pro-family, pro-life national women's organization, the R.E.A.L. Women of Canada, was conceived by a group of women who could no longer tolerate the way the majority is being represented. Together with the media, the various women's groups who purport to speak for the women of this country in fact only speak for small ... (Continue reading)

Another Man for All Seasons

Somebody has said, "I like witnesses who get killed." So do I but I have to confess that I belong to another ilk! Since history began there have been as many causes as there have been decades, and each cause produces its own heroes, its own witnesses who set no boundaries to the sacrifices demanded; men and women who are prepared to give personal proof of the perennial presence in the world of that "greater love than which no man ...

7,000 March for Life in Toronto

Lead by a pipe band and carrying banners and placards to state their knowledge, about 7,000 Pro-Life supporters marched in silence down University Avenue. The crowds occupied three lanes of pavement and stretched from Queen's Park to well past Elm street. The march went past Mount Sinai Hospital, the hospital for Sick Children, Toronto General Hospital and, of course, the Ontario Parliament Buildings. According to organizers, this was the biggest march ever in Toronto and was considered highly successful by all ... (Continue reading)

Kitchener-Waterloo Right to Life runs with buses

It began in March of this year and continues until March 1984, that posters were permitted placement on Kitchener-Waterloo buses. Members of the K-W Right to Life Association approached the Transit Commission there, who in turn had to clear the move with the Regional Council. The advertisement was approved because of freedom of speech as opposed to a pro-life attitude on the part of the council. The poster campaign was not only inexpensive, but stirred much interest. Vancouver Right to Life ... (Continue reading)

The trial and Borowski

The following contains an editorial from The Catholic Register, Mar. 5, 1983 on Mr. Borowski's predicament. As pointed out below, Joe Borowski needs cash - a lot of it. He wants to challenge the abortion law's failure to protect the unborn child. It will cost $350,000. Borowski knows pro-life groups live on the boarder of the black and the red, so he's not confident of the amount of money suddenly appearing. He also needs your prayers. The trial of the century may soon be ... (Continue reading)

The man who stood alone

His name was Franz Jaeggerstaetter but you will not find it in any "Who's Who' in the world. He was what would be called a 'small Austrian farmer' with a wife and two young children, and when Hitler united Austria to Germany by force in the 'Anschluss' of March 1938, he was probably in his early thirties. Franz had only grade school education but he was a man of high intelligence and strict moral principles. He had read and heard ... (Continue reading)

Commercial success!

Launched March 7, 1983, the Campaign Life produced commercials featuring Dr. Bernard Nathanson, have proven tremendously popular and were devastating to pro-abortion forces who were taken by complete surprise with this new strategy to inform the public. Within minutes of the first commercials on March 7, around 11:00 a.m, Campaign Life phones were ringing in congratulations. The commercials sparked media interest and within three days of airing, CBC, both English and French networks, The Winnipeg Free Press, CKY TV in Winnipeg, Global ... (Continue reading)

Campaign Life Pamphlets Canada

Saturday, February 26th, was the day 100,000 glossy red pamphlets appeared across Canada, sponsored by Campaign Life Canada. The pamphlet titled the facts every Canadian should know about abortion clinics, is a sharply done affair with considerable amounts of information contained in its four small pages. The flyer compiled excerpts from two recent television interviews with Dr. Bernard Nathanson on CTV's Canada AM, and with abortionist Henry Morgentaler in debate on CHCH TV's Cherington. Both shows were very successful, and were ... (Continue reading)
