Janelle grew up knowing abortion was an issue in Canada, but never actively took a stand against it. In 2015, she had the opportunity to do the High School Internship with the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform. During the first few days of the internship, the reality of abortion in Canada was very overwhelming to her. Throughout the summer she experienced first-hand the effectiveness of CCBR’s projects. She was filled with a new hope and sense of motivation that using CCBR’s strategy, it would be possible to end abortion in Canada.
Upon returning home, Janelle began doing “Choice” Chain with the Abortion Awareness Project in Lethbridge, and also participated in the Genocide Awareness Project with CCBR. She realized that she had a personal responsibility to help EndtheKilling, and decided to work full-time with CCBR. Janelle currently works from the Calgary office as Fundraising Coordinator.
