Meet the interns: Cindy Corrales

What motivated you to join the pro-life movement? What continues to motivate you?

Realizing that abortion is real and wrong motivated me to join the pro-life movement but realizing that I can do something effective to change our culture is what motivates me to keep going. I know that if we all work very hard and more people join us we will make abortion unthinkable within a few years!!

When did you first come into contact with CCBR?

File 4260

I first came into contact with CCBR when my friend Maria McCann invited me to the NCLN Symposium in Toronto. There I heard some CCBR staff give talks and I also did “Choice” Chain for the very first time. 

What made you choose this organization? 

I truly believe that this organization has found the way to make abortion unthinkable in our culture. They have found the language to speak to our secular and visual generation. The arguments of the pro-life movement and the use of victim image photography are extremely effective.

If you had to name your greatest challenge in joining the pro-life movement, what would it be?

Now that I have done some fundraising for my summer internship a big challenge would definitely have to be asking people to join the pro-life movement financially. It is hard to meet pro-life people and it is even harder to find a pro-life person who wants to support the pro-life movement. Another huge challenge was realizing how normal abortion is among Canadians, it was really painful to see. 

What do you hope you will learn from CCBR this summer? 

This summer I hope to learn how to better and most effectively communicate the pro-life position to a larger audience.

What has been your best experience in the pro-life movement so far? Why?

This is hard to choose. I have always had life changing experiences in every single one of the events I have done with CCBR. However, I think the best thing in general is seeing minds and hearts changing when one presents the pro-life position with logical arguments that they cannot disagree with.

Who in history inspires you to believe you can make a change? Why?

The are so many people in history who inspire me to make change… but in general people who fail and were told that they were never be able to make it but carry on anyway.

If you were a coloured animal, what would you be?

If I were a coloured animal I would be a pink dolphin, because they actually exist and they are found in the Amazon River in Colombia ;)

 You'll be doing activism outside all summer, so this one's important: ice cream or slushies?

I like strawberry sundaes!!!
