Pro Lifers Needed: Since May 1983 there has been a pro life presence in front of the Civic hospital every Sunday from 2-3 p.m. The purpose is to educate the public and to reassure women they have a choice other than abortion. In the beginning, there were many people each Sunday but as time went on the numbers dwindled. Now there are just one or two in front of the hospital every Sunday afternoon. We would like to keep up this pro life witness and need more help. If you can give one hour/month please contact: John Fennelly 613-867-0144; fennelly11189@gmail.com.

Dear pro-lifer,

In just over a month, the 24th National March for Life is descending upon Parliament Hill in Ottawa and to TV and computer screens all across the country.

But first, please save the date for next Tuesday, April 13 at 12 noon EDT for a special video update from the National March for Life Organizing committee featuring our special guest and MC for this year’s Annual Rose Dinner, David Bereit, founder of 40 Days for Life and international pro-life speaker.

The video will premiere on our March for Life Canada YouTube channelSubscribe to the channel right away to be notified as soon as it goes live.

Back in February, during our theme launch presentation, we kicked off our 100 day countdown to the March for Life including this year’s theme “You are not alone”.

Over the last two months we have worked tirelessly to prepare what we think is one of the most ambitious March for Life programs ever.

Even during the ongoing pandemic, the abortion industry, including our current government, has been hard at work promoting abortion as an ‘essential service’ throughout Canada and abroad.

Over this same period, during these unprecedented times, our government also passed a law expanding euthanasia and assisted-suicide.

The Culture of Death is gaining ground.

But do not be discouraged.

The antidote is within all of us who uphold the inherent right to life of every human being. It is a Culture of Life that needs to be proclaimed in every household, workplace, place of worship, and in the legislative chambers across this country.

That’s why we’ve prepared a month full of March for Life content to inform, inspire, and call to action.

During Tuesday’s 30-minute special presentation, we’ll announce the 2021 keynote speakers for the annual Rose Dinner and Youth Conference and we’ll guide you through a jam-packed schedule of online events leading up to the March for Life which includes our Life on Film movie festival which is on NOW!

Starting this weekend, for just $12.99 (USD) you can watch the recently released film Roe V Wade, featuring director Nick Loeb, who plays the late Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the abortionist turned pro-life advocate. It also features Jon Voight and Stacey Dash.

You can watch the recently released film Roe V Wade through a special online portal created for the March for Life by the film producers.

This is the only movie in our Life on Film series that requires a ticket purchase, but it’s worth every dollar.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the movie!

For life,

Debbie Duval
National Capital Organizer, Campaign Life Coalition
On behalf of the National March for Life Organizing Committee

P.S. Please encourage your family and friends to tune in for our ‘1 month to go’ video update which will premiere at 12 noon EDT on our March for Life Canada YouTube channel on April 13.

P.P.S. For the full schedule of events, go to marchforlife.ca.
