Actress Alyssa Milano, 46, who earlier this year urged women go on a “sex strike” to protest state-level abortion restrictions, revealed that she had two abortions in 1993 when she was 20 years old. On her podcast Sorry Not Sorry, Milano said she was “in love for the first time” and “it was an exciting time in my life.” Milano said she was not “equipped to be a mother and so I chose to have an abortion. It was my choice. ... (Continue reading)

Handling ‘heart issues’

Handling ‘heart issues’

Occasionally, no rational argument will convince someone of the pro-life position, and maybe this is because their resistance to it comes from the heart and not the head. Experience will aid in your ability to identify when it’s a “heart issue.” The person you’re talking to could be very upset or highly irrational, or constantly returning to one particular circumstance or excuse. To suss out what ... (Continue reading)

How to talk about abortion

How to talk about abortion

Reassessing the purpose If given the chance, pro-lifers will jump at the opportunity to talk about abortion with fellow pro-lifers. Conversations with pro-choicers are often intimidating though. There are many reasons why an awareness that the pro-life position is not politically correct, or a fear of upsetting someone over this emotionally charged issue. A big factor is the pressure that comes with thinking that you’re responsible for representing the entirety of the pro-life movement and that you must convert this ... (Continue reading)

Relief offered by gestational limits tests our resolve

Talk Turkey Josie Luetke I was recently reflecting on Save the 1’s drawing on of the Parable of the Wandering Sheep (Matthew 18:10-14). Save the 1 is a pro-life organization advocating against the rape exception for abortion (in either our personal views or in legislation). In the parable, the shepherd leaves 99 of his herd to find the one sheep that has wandered off. It’s a cheery ... (Continue reading)

The moral pollution of abortion

The moral pollution of abortion

Few issues in public discourse are as prominent as concern for the climate. Celebrities, politicians, and activists preach an apocalyptic gospel of environmental repentance because there is a crisis, we are told, just slightly out of the reach of our senses. Carbon emissions and average temperature are used to substantiate fears about a looming disaster which can be felt everywhere but seen nowhere. And advocates insist that, if we ...

It ... (Continue reading)

Status of Women Minister urged to ‘stand up for the girl-child in the womb’

Pro-life women have urged Rona Ambrose, Minister for the Status of Women, to support M-408, a private member’s motion that condemns sex-selective abortion. Last Fall, Ambrose shocked some political observers when she joined ten of her cabinet colleagues and a majority of her caucus to support Stephen Woodworth’s private member’s motion calling for a scientific inquiry about the child in the womb. The motion was defeated and unions and feminist groups called for Ambrose’s resignation. Ambrose stated that she supported the ... (Continue reading)

Not our right to protect one life and snuff out another

“We’re stepped out upon the world’s stage now – the fate of human dignity is in our hands.” With the words above, Steven Spielberg’s Abraham Lincoln faces his cabinet down and reminds them of the challenge facing his bleeding nation. He insists that they take a stand before the world, and fight on to abolish and criminalize slavery once and for all. Whether the real Lincoln said these exact words we will never know, but that they reflect the challenge of ... (Continue reading)

M-312 defeated 203-91

On Sept. 26, four Liberal MPs and more than half the Conservative caucus, including 10 members of the government, voted for M-312, Stephen Woodworth’s private member’s motion calling for a debate on the beginning of human life.

While pro-life leaders ... (Continue reading)
