Glamour Magazine, the World Health Organization, and a comedian talk about abortion

By Jonathon Van Maren

Abortion has surfaced pretty regularly in the news these days. The World Health Organization, for example, reported good news and bad news. The good news: “A recent study by the World Health Organisation (WHO) shows that the rate of abortion in the developed world dropped by 19 points, from 46 to 27 for every 1,000 women aged between 15 and 44.” The bad news: “The data collected compared findings between 1990 to 1994 and 2010 to 2014, and showed that the rate of abortion in the developing world…had not dropped significantly.” A staggering 56 million abortions take place worldwide per year, around 88% of those in the developing world. Many of those abortions are funded by the “foreign aid” of the Obama Administration, and Justin Trudeau’s government has promised to begin funding abortions overseas imminently as well.

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

In my first year of university, I was invited to a meeting of the campus pro-life club. National Campus Life Network was doing dialogue training. Through high school, I had struggled to defend my pro-life position in conversation but the way Rebecca Richmond articulated the arguments made a lot of logical sense. Since then, I’ve watched these tools being put into action, gradually renovating the crumbling foundations of our society.

Why do you want to work with CCBR a second summer?

After last summer the pro-life movement saw amazing results from CCBR's activism and strategy. However, there is still a great need for us to be on the streets showing the public what abortion does to the pre-born and engaging in powerful conversation. I want to see the pro-life consensus continually building.

A sobering truth

Why do you want to work with CCBR a second Summer?

Last summer’s experience was mind opening and life changing. We worked very hard, and made a huge impact. Yet, I know that the work is not finished. This summer has the potential to change even more minds and save even more lives, and this purpose to our work became my purpose every day last summer to keep at it, and I want it to be my purpose once again this summer. There are still people to be reached and children we need to speak up for.

Why do you want to work with CCBR a second Summer?

My internship with CCBR last summer was by far the hardest, yet most rewarding thing I have ever done with my life. The experiences that were had, the people I met and interacted with during activism, and everything I learned were valuable life-changing lessons that helped me come to the decision that this work is something I want to make a significant part of my life.

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

What motivated me to join the pro-life movement, is that abortion is happening every day, all the time and that women are choosing to take away the life of their children because they feel they have no other option. I want to inform them that there ARE other options.

Are children gifts or liabilities?

By Caroline Slingerland

It’s a storm that’s been brewing in my mind for quite some time, but I could never quite express why it made me uncomfortable; I just knew that it did.  Much of it is cloaked in humour, stemming from the very real frustrations of parenting, but it has a very real and perhaps even dangerous result.
