2009 is drawing to a close and this past year has been huge. We’ve raised significant material support for women facing crisis pregnancies. We’ve facilitated respectful dialogue on campus regarding abortion. We’ve helped mobilize students in defense of the dignity of the elderly and infirm through our letter-writing campaign. We co-hosted the National Campaign Life Network Pub Night for Life, and we’ve helped equip new pro-life leaders. As this year draws to a close, Ottawa Students for Life would like to take this opportunity to thank the various organizations, individuals, and the hundreds of students that have helped make this possible.
But despite our efforts, despite the long hours we devoted to OSFL, despite the time we took away from homework, and friends, and despite the significant financial sacrifices we made still more than 100,000 babies were killed by abortion in Canada this past year. More people work full time to take lives than to save lives. Most Canadians ignore these issues.
In spite of this, we will not be discouraged. We do not have time to be discouraged. Rather, we will be more resolved and committed in our efforts to promote and protect the inherent dignity of every individual human being. We will continue to review what we can do to be more effective, and we value your input and feedback in this regard. We will keep loving and serving the vulnerable, the elderly, the maligned, and the marginalized.
From all of us at OSFL: Have an AWESOME New Year! We’re looking forward to greater things in the new semester and beyond. We will be taking a short break from blogging in the next couple weeks, but will be up and blogging consistently soon enough. It’s going to be f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c!
