The National March for Life is less than three weeks away!
Canada does not have any law regulating abortions. This means that abortions are possible at any time throughout the full nine months of gestation. We along with China and North Korea are the only countries in the world with this "distinction."
The rally in Ottawa on this the 150th anniversary of the founding of our country plays upon the lyrics from our national anthem.
Our respect for life is also mirrored in the beliefs of our first Prime Minister, Sir John A. MacDonald, who opposed abortion and stated that "abortion saps the very life-blood from the nation."
