Here at uOSFL, we are not just about trials, struggles, and controversy – although those are a given in our battleground! We are also about celebrating life, the gift of life, the joy of life!
We are pleased to announce our next Joys of Life event – our annual Christmas Baby Shower! It will be held this Sunday, December 9th, from 2pm to 5pm in Café Alternatif, 60 University Private (basement of Simard building). There will be food, mingling, and games. Bring a snack to share and a friend, and most importantly, bring a gift for a mother facing a difficult pregnancy! Gifts will be donated to First Place Pregnancy Centre. *UPDATE: clothes for babies 0-3 months, winter clothing and diapers are most appreciated.
This event is hosted by the University of Ottawa Students for Life, your pro-life club on campus. For more information, please visit our Facebook event and follow us on Twitter at @uosfl_epvuo.
No matter where you stand on abortion, surely we should all be horrified that 491 babies were born alive and left to die between 2000 and 2009 in Canada, as confirmed by Statistics Canada. How can this be happening in our country? Could it be that not granting any protection or assigning any value to preborn children at any point before birth leads to more of the same treatment when they are still vulnerable after birth? (Infants and others in the UK are being subjected to slow death by starvation in an end-of-life regime called the Liverpool Care Pathway. Euthanasia by any other name is just as insidious.)
