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.

11 Apr 2008 Canada debates foetal homicide

Margaret Somerville | Tuesday, 8 April 2008 [from www.mercatornet.com] 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.

19 Oct 2007 Stem Cell Research: A double-edged Sword

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.

11 Oct 2007 Should We Use Graphic Pro-Life Pictures?

The CTV News clip below shows coverage of the Canadian Centre for Bioethical Reform's Reproductive "Choice" Campaign in Calgary   by Jon Dykstra (first appeared in the September 2002 issue of Reformed Perspective) Greg Cunningham is an “in your face” kind of guy. Last year he began putting 7 by 22 foot pictures of aborted babies on the sides of delivery trucks, which were then driven all over California. On the Memorial Day weekend this year (May 25-27) he took it up a notch, renting a plane and trailing a 30 by 100 foot banner behind it. The banner showed parts of a 10-week-old aborted fetus: an arm and two legs laid out on top of a US nickel to give spectators an idea of the size of the bloody remains. He flew the plane over the Santa Monica beaches, showing the picture to jam-packed holiday weekend crowds.
