Last Monday, hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers marched in Washington for the 39th March for Life.  Despite the January weather, this is consistently one of the largest annual protests in Washington. Even though the title of the protest is “for life” it is very clear that this event is specifically an anti-abortion event. The March more
Last night, Salt + Light Television inaugurated a special annual tribute that will honour a person who has played an important role in protecting and promoting the dignity and sacredness of human life in Canada. The award, called “Lover of Life”, was presented last night to Mrs. Joanne Verduci of Brampton, Ontario. Mrs. Verduci is more
As anti-capitalism protests continue in Toronto’s St. James Park, a different kind of protest occupied the front lawn of the provincial legislature one week ago. Nearly 2,000 demonstrators gathered at Queen’s Park for the first ever Defund Abortion Rally. The event called on the province of Ontario to end the practice of subsidizing elective abortions. more

Fresh off of yesterday’s festivities, this year’s National March for Life in Ottawa stood out the most, in comparison to past years. With that being said, among all of the people gathered on Parliament Hill yesterday, there was a renewed sense of energy; with lots of optimism, hope and joy. Igniting praise among those who more
A few weeks ago I was looking for stats on Canadians’ views on abortion. It’s such a hard topic because pretty much everyone can find the right poll to suit their position on the matter.  For example, there the 2008 Angus Reid poll that shows that half of Canadians want abortion to remain legal.

The following article comes from author and Vaticanista John L Allen Jr: Tensions surrounding Catholic identity are very much in the air these days, and when they erupt they’re always a prescription for heartburn. People who regard themselves as authentically Catholic rarely enjoy being be told they’re not, or that they’re only selectively so. Likewise, more
After the 40 Days for Life Campaign last spring 2010, a few us decided to keep us the presence at the abortion facility on almost a daily basis because abortions were still happening and we felt that we had to do something. Each week, a small group of us would get together to pray, counsel more
