Last October, we organized Defund Abortion mini-rallies in 44 ridings across the province. These events were designed to create community awareness and put pressure on local MPPs leading up to a collective rally at Queen’s Park where we’ll tell Ontario’s elected representatives to stop spending public tax dollars on abortion – a medically unecessary procedure.
In 2011, our first-ever, Queens Park Defund Abortion Rally at Ontario’s legislature drew over 2000 pro-lifers. The spirited event called on the assembled legislature to ease financial pressure on our crumbling health care system by defunding medically unecessary, elective abortions.
Many guest speakers, including a medical doctor and families who have been declined OHIP coverage for a variety of genuine health problems, spoke eloquently about the dire need for our collapsing health care system to fund only genuine health care, rather than controversial lifestyle choices.
That first Queens Park Defund Abortion Rally drew significant media attention, and we know from speaking to MPPs, that it impacted them. This year, we want to make the rally even larger. Please mark your calendar for March 19. Bring your friends and family! Why not organize a bus trip from your church? Please help us make a huge impression upon Ontario’s legislature. (more…)
