Face Development in the Womb

by Dante De Luca

Here is a video that is currently trending on YouTube. It is from the BBC series Inside the Human Body featuring Michael Mosley, and it shows a CGI animation of how the human face develops between the second and third month of gestation.
Unfortunately the whole episode is not available for viewing in Canada as far as I can tell, but if you are in the UK you can watch it here. I think you may also be able to download it from there, even if you are not in the UK.

Coverage of the March for Life!

by Marissa Poisson

Thanks to all those who came to the 2011 March for Life! It was great to be surrounded by such a huge number of pro-lifers. The above video is worth watching whether you were able to participate or not. I especially like the message at the 5:23 mark. The child in the womb is human, women are strong enough to have their babies, and support is available. (See resources in Ottawa on the right.) The March for Life is an annual event, but that is something that bears repeating every day of the year.

Join uOSFL at the March for Life and NCLN Dinner!

Join your favourite pro-life student club at the March for Life! We will be congregating on Parliament Hill betweenа noon and 1 pm. You will be able to recognize us by our enormous banner. The March itself begins at 1:30 pm and lasts for about an hour. For more information on the March and related events, see the official page.

Later that day, at 6 pm, there is Life & Justice: The 3rd Annual Campus Pro-Life Student Dinner, organised by the National Campus Life Network. It is an opportunity for students (and some of their non-student allies) to come together for an evening of food and fellowship as we celebrate the accomplishments of campus pro-life groups and look to the upcoming school year.  The evening will feature student testimonials as well as a review of the student pro-life movement in Canada over the past year, and also a delicious buffet!

It will take place in the hall of St. Theresa Catholic Church at 95 Somerset St. W. (St. Theresa’s is in the downtown and only a 20 minute walk from Parliament Hill). Tickets are $20 for students and $30 for non-students; if you would like a ticket, you can contact Rebecca at director@ncln.ca.
