Pre-Born Human Rights

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” – Psalm 139:13-14

Since R v Morgentaler in 1988 abortion has been legal in Canada, and since the Canadian government has not created any new legislation protecting the unborn, Canada remains one of the only countries in the world without any abortion laws at all. is an organization started by ARPA Canada to focus efforts on this vacuum.

08 Jul 2008 Morgentaler

By David Warren, Sunday Spectator, July 6, 2008Let me tell my reader about an “epiphany” I once had -- a long time ago, yet seemingly yesterday. Some things, especially memories of love, remain vivid for the duration of one’s life. This was something that happened when I was seventeen, travelling through India by third class rail. I had left Howrah Station in Calcutta the day before, bound for Raxaul on the frontier with Nepal. I rode twenty-five hours continuously on an unbelievably hot and crowded train (often thinking I...

30 Jun 2008 A MUST READ: An Open Letter to Fellow Pro-Life Labourers Regarding the Order of Canada

By Stephanie Gray, Executive Director, Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform, June 30, 2008As my inbox floods with news about Henry Morgentaler's supposed receipt of the Order of Canada, my thought is this, "So what?" To give Henry Morgentaler the Order of Canada is simply to be consistent with what's going on in this country.Sure, people can point to an online poll by the Globe and Mail which revealed 92% of the over 300,000 respondents are against giving the award to Morgentaler. But the reality is this: a majority of Canadians support abortion when the procedure most often occurs (the first trimester). The reality is this: over 250 human beings will be killed today. The reality is this: that killing is state-sanctioned. The reality is this: that killing is paid for by our tax dollars. If this is the first time Canadians are feeling shame about celebrating Canada Day, then we have problems. People should have been reluctant to "celebrate" Canada day back in 1969 when abortion first became legal.

11 Apr 2008 Canada debates foetal homicide

Margaret Somerville | Tuesday, 8 April 2008 [from] Sound evidence and sound language are absent in pro-choice arguments. Canada is debating Bill C-484, The Unborn Victims of Crime Act, which would make it a separate crime to injure or kill an unborn child in the course of committing a crime against a woman the accused knew to be pregnant. Abortion rights activists, who are fighting to defeat the bill, have announced that in early May a protest opposing it will take place in Ottawa. They "are (also) encouraging (pro-choice) supporters across Canada to hold similar protests as a sign of nationwide solidarity against Bill C-484." They claim the bill is "all about abortion." In view of the controversy Bill C-484 is raising, it's very important that we - in particular our politicians, who will vote on the bill - have our facts straight. It's one matter to correctly understand the bill and vote against it. It is quite another to do so on the basis of facts and arguments that are not correct.

18 Dec 2007 Riding in the Dark

by Rod Taylor [Republished with permission from CHP Skeena-Bulkley Valley]Every year we lose a riding in Canada. That is, we lose every person in the riding. That is, we lose the population equivalent of one federal riding. I refer, of course, to the more than 100,000 innocents killed each year by abortion. The Skeena-Bulkley Valley Riding, showed a population of 99,474 souls in 2004. That is, the combined populations of Smithers, Telkwa, Terrace, the Hazeltons, Kitimat, Prince Rupert, the Queen Charlotte Islands, Moricetown, Dease Lake, Telegraph Creek, Atlin, Gitseguecla, Lower Post, Fort St. James, Houston, Burns Lake, New Aiyansh, Port Edward, Bella Bella, Bella Coola, Lachkaltsap, Iskut, Gitanyow, Quick and all the smaller communities add up to less than the number of babies we allow to be killed in Canada each year.

By Ryan VanDriel (Surrey/Cloverdale ARPA) April 2002As you read this, legislation is being drafted in our nation's capital over a very controversial issue: stem cell research. What is it and why the controversy? What has our government done on the matter and what is our position? How can you offer the government your input? Well, stem cells are "blank" or "mother" cells that can be extracted, and, when coaxed in a lab setting, can develop into any one of the 200+ different tissue types in the human body.
