Thursday was the March for Life in Edmonton. Over 1,000 people showed up in Churchill Square to rally and walk to the steps of the Legislature building in protection of the unborn.
March for Life is a movement that started in the United States almost two decades ago to give voice to the voiceless. It spread to Canada, where we shamefully join North Korea as another country with no restrictions on abortion whatsoever.
Thursday’s March for Life crowd was diverse. It was young people, millennials, parents and the elderly. They were secular, gay, evangelicals, catholics and others.
The prolife movement is one without a political home. It’s broad ranging, highly motivated, peaceful, polite and growing. The prolifers aren't going away.
A political party would do well to be brave enough to include them in their ranks without an insistence that prolifers shut up and sit down.
