VIDEO: CampaignLifeTV Theme Announcement for 2018 March for Life. Showing up to this year’s march also serves to inform Prime Minister Trudeau that—despite his efforts to suppress them—Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Speech are still alive and well in Canada.
The them is “a call to action to uphold the dignity and invaluable worth of every human life, in all aspects of our life, from personal to professional, from spiritual to political,” says Campaign Life Coalition youth coordinator Marie-Claire Bissonnette, in a video promoting the nation’s largest annual pro-life event.
“We are pro-life, without reservations, no excuses, no exceptions, no compromises. We’re not ashamed, we’re not afraid to be pro-life and that’s why it’s important to stand together. Join us at the National March for Life. We are pro-life and we’re all in.”
Organized by Campaign Life Coalition, Canada’s pro-life, pro-family political lobbying group and largest pro-life association, the March for Life marks May 14, 1969, when Pierre Elliott Trudeau’s Liberal government passed an omnibus bill legalizing abortion and opened the door to abortion on demand.
On January 28, 1988, the Supreme Court struck down the law as unconstitutional, leaving Canada with no federal legislation on abortion.
