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

It all started when my grade eight French teacher asked me to join the school Reverence for Life Club. Not completely certain of what I was getting into, I agreed. I began to participate in different pro-life activities such as the March for Life in Victoria, the vow of silence, Life Chain, and many more. I learned that I was fighting for life, but I never fully grasped this idea until I attended my first pro-life apologetics event. Any and all doubts that I ever had were gone. Not only did I

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

I have always been strongly convicted that abortion is wrong both morally and spiritually, but it is the pictures of abortion victims that grip me. If something is so horrible we cannot look at it, why are we tolerating it?

Banning abortion is just science-based public policy

By Jonathon Van Maren

We heard a good deal of blathering from Justin Trudeau and his Liberals during last fall’s election campaign as well as during the many government photo ops that have followed (Trudeau averages one photo op a day) about the need for “science-based public policy.” I’m sure it would irritate them to find out that I happen to agree with this sentiment entirely.

Summer is the best

By Cam Cote

With the arrival of our university interns in the beginning of May, and now with a second wave of high school interns at the beginning of July, our activism numbers have absolutely gone through the roof. Don’t get me wrong- the CCBR Calgary staff and volunteers, led Rachel Dalcin, our Calgary Outreach Coordinator, do an impressive amount of activism all year long, whether it’s sunny, rainy, or snowy, however when the reinforcements arrive our reach expands exponentially.

When you learn you've been lied to

By Justina Van Maren

When standing outside of high-schools engaging or attempting to engage the teenagers rushing by, I nearly always find myself struggling with a deep sense of sadness. It happened several weeks ago as I stood outside of a Toronto high-school. Very few students exited the school, and as I stood, trying to pass the time by telling stories in my head, I happened to look up. Two girls peered out at us from upstairs window. They stared at the images, whispered something to each other, and looked again. One of them caught my eye, nudged her friend, and both girls disappeared.

Being a CCBR Volunteer is Brutal Sometimes—Here’s Why I Show Up Anyway

By Amberlee Nicol

Some days I wonder why I keep doing pro-life activism. Volunteering with CCBR in particular has me questioning at times: Whether it’s getting stuck with a crazy middle-aged woman ranting at you in the street, being hassled by rent-a-cops at the mall, or having to endure the killer combination of chafing and sunburn that develops while dropping off postcards, CCBR volunteerism tends to produce a distinctive breed of stress and suffering.

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

After seeing abortion victim photography, I knew I had to take a more active role in the pro-life movement. The knowledge that 300 children are being slaughtered daily is what motivates me to do this. I know that I must do all I can for them because so many lives depend on me.
