The Beauty of Community

By Maaike Rosendal

Meet our interns: Ashley Vandermeer

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

I was motivated to join the pro-life movement out of a feeling of necessity. I knew abortion is a moral wrong and the then president of the pro-life club at my university convinced me to join the student executive. I’ve been involved with the club ever since. As for what continues to motivate me, that would be the women I see in pain. Personal testimony is so powerful. Knowing people who have been pressured to have an abortion, talking to women who have gone through abortion, and meeting a woman who placed her child with adoptive parents has been the biggest motivation. My faith also gives me the strength to persevere. 

The broken culture's broken hearts

by Robyn VandenHoek

“Do these images have an impact on you at all?”

“No…”

“It doesn’t bother you at all that this happens every day?”

He shrugged his shoulders.

“Do you understand why we’re saying that abortion is genocide?”

“It isn’t really… They’re not alive yet.”

“What are they then?”

“I don’t know… They just can’t really think yet. How can they be humans?”

Love and Judgement

by Catherine Shenton

“Judge not, that you be not judged.” (Matthew 7:1)

CCBR is a non-sectarian organization (after all, you don’t have to be religious to see that abortion kills children and killing children is wrong). Nevertheless, there’s a strong association in our public consciousness between Christianity and all things pro-life, so we hear this verse fairly often. Ironically, I usually have it quoted at me as part of someone’s judgment of our work and why we’re going about things all wrong.

Here’s the thing, though: this verse, as any verse, needs to be read and understood in context rather than isolation. And there are plenty of people more qualified to comment on scripture than me, but there are a few things I’d like to talk about, more about what this doesn’t mean than what it does.

The Procession

In 1970, The Abortion Caravan delivered a black coffin to 24 Sussex Drive. It symbolized women who died from "back-alley" abortions. On June 30, 2012, The New Abortion Caravan delivered a white child's coffin to 24 Sussex Drive. It symbolized the more than 3 million children killed by abortion.

The TRUTH ALWAYS finds a way

On May 31st 2012 protestors blocked a CCBR abortion truck in downtown Vancouver for 45 minutes, in heavy traffic. While they attempted to stop the truth from being shown, another abortion truck continued to role the streets of Vancouver exposing the ugly reality that we live in, abortion on demand through all 9 months.
