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. WeNeedaLaw.ca is an organization started by ARPA Canada to focus efforts on this vacuum. Find a link to their website below for more on our efforts.

24 Aug 2009 The abortion distortion

National Post - August 21, 2009: By Andrea Mrozek And Rebecca Walberg'Safe, legal and rare" is the mantra of consensus-seeking pro-choice feminists, and one that at least acknowledges that abortion is not a desirable outcome for any pregnancy. But today in Quebec, abortion activists are rebranding. Try this newly truncated motto on for size: "just keep it legal." Bill 34 in Quebec was an attempt to legislate the same standards for all out-patient medical clinics. The bill, it's worth noting, never mentioned abortion,...

29 Jun 2009 The Smiling Unborn Child

Music in Utero, By Chuck Colson: 6/29/2009In 1984, a video called The Silent Scream helped change the way people think about the unborn child. The footage of an actual abortion and the fetus’s reaction reminded us that abortion involves the death of a real person. A recent bit of footage has similar potential, only it couldn’t be more different from The Silent Scream. The footage was part of a recent PBS special, The Music Instinct: Science & Song. The program was an exploration of, among other things,...

12 Feb 2009 Using embryonic stem cells to improve our lives is the new cannibalism. At what cost to our souls?

By Tom Oleson, Winnipeg Free Press, Feb 3, 2009: About 500,000 years ago, archeologists tell us, some guy sat down at whatever passed for a dinner table in those days and cooked and then consumed the tastier parts of another guy. Why he did this, we don't really know -- perhaps it was just as simple as the fact that he was hungry and there was nothing else to eat-- but we do know from the archeological record that cannibalism is as old as humanity.

10 Jul 2008 It’s time to talk about abortion

Alone among developed countries, Canada has no abortion law. Is 'settling' for a non-decision any way for a democracy to behave?Andrew Coyne - Macleans.ca This is not about abortion. This is about democracy. It is about how we decide things, and by what rules, and how we treat each other when we disagree. Indeed, it is about whether we are allowed to disagree; whether dissent on a contentious issue is respected, or even recognized; and whether, in the face of clear evidence...

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...
