Edmonton March for Life: Diverse crowd unites to defend rights of unborn

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

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.

This beautiful seven day old baby girl was born premature at 23 weeks. Had her mother so chosen, she would have been subjected to an abortion procedure called D & E (Dilation and Evacuation). Her limbs would have been ripped off one at a time and her little head would have been crushed as part of the abortion procedure. Let’s assume she was the product of rape and/or incest. Before crushing her tiny head, which of her limbs should be removed first pro-choicers?

This is a description of a D & E by former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino: http://www.dailywire.com/news/3654/abortion-doctor-explains-just-what-abortion-its-amanda-prestigiacomo

I am pro choice, quite frankly as a man the question is only academic to me anyway. That being said any activity has to have reasonable limits assessed and put in place, so while I am pro choice I am also pro reasonable rules. I would violently oppose any counter protesters to the the pro life movement and in fact in my long and varied career serving the public in jobs from security to firefighting I have always ensured my actions supported the freedom of speech that any democratic society must enshrine. All of us pro choicer’s aren’t the same so use a smaller brush when you paint us please; I don’t want any left wing red on me.

I saw them here in my town as well. What a brave group. I am always surprised no violence is issued against them. Then I think why should it be us on the defensive? Why are we considered the freaks? We are talking about genocide.

Chris:

Interesting you should say this. I just wrote to Rona Ambrose asking her the same question.
Maybe you should too! The more people our politicians hear from, maybe, just maybe they’ll develop a backbone to stand up for and say what they themselves feel and not what their ‘leader’ is telling them to think, say and do.

Good for you Chris!

We live in a world where loud, rude, and vaguely violent people get the most attention from politicians. I’m not saying we should stoop to that level, but it seems that we need a provocateur to get the attention so that the kind and respectful people can have their voice. The Halifax March for Life was a nice crowd of people (although I admittedly couldn’t stay for the whole thing), but nobody at Government House had to listen if they chose to ignore it.

There is always a marked difference in the way pro-choicers act (angry, hateful, rude, and many times violent) verses the way pro-lifers act (quiet, respectful, polite, and peaceful).

It is obvious which group of people are mature and which ones are not mature.

These people are the Backbone of Canada.
