University Students Protest Morgentaler Decision on Parliament Hill

OTTAWA, January 30, 2008 ( - On Monday January 28th, 2008, from 11:30am - 4:30pm, Carleton University's pro-life club, Lifeline, and members of the community, challenged the notion that the R. v. Morgentaler decision was beneficial for Canada. They set up a visual display on Parliament Hill showing the truth behind abortion.

The group mourned the loss of the 1,714,892 children missing since 1988 because of abortion. Pamphlets and bilingual press releases were handed out and banners were obtained from Lifeline as well as Campaign Life Coalition.

"It is apparent that Canadians are not settled on this issue, despite what many may wish to believe," said Nicholas McLeod, of Carleton Lifeline, "We hope to expose the truth of this 'choice' and challenge Canada to do better for women in crisis pregnancies". 

Carleton Lifeline is a student club that promotes respect for all human life from conception. They believe in the inherent dignity of all human beings. They recognize that abortion harms mothers and ends the live of their innocent unborn children. They believe that Canada can do better.
