Genocide Awareness Project at U of C Calgary

The Canadian Centre for Bioethical Reform [CCBR] organizes the Genocide Awareness Project [GAP] at universities under the sponsorship of campus pro-life clubs. On Monday and Tuesday of this week, the pro-life club at the University of Calgary hosted an exhibition of GAP.

I was in attendance on Monday for several hours, watching the reaction and listening in on the conversations. It was an extremely effective demonstration in my opinion and significantly affected quite a number of passers-by. There were some very interested individuals asking questions and some able apologetics happening, resulting in hearts and minds being changed in favour of the rights of the unborn.

The pro-life students manning the display were well prepared and enthusiastic, having gone through a fairly extensive training process under the leadership of Stephanie Gray, the Executive Director, and Jose [Jojo] Ruba, a co-founder and full time leader at CBBR.

Graphic images have their place in the fight to protect unborn human beings and this event is a perfect example of not only a good setting in which to do it but also an excellent approach to accompanying the graphic displays with serious heart changing apologetics!

Great work Stephanie, Jojo, and all the pro-life student volunteers! Lives are being saved through your efforts and dedication. We need lots more GAP projects at universities and colleges and more pro-life projects of all kinds in all the nooks and crannies of the Canadian landscape.

I just found your blog. Very interesting, esp. the GAP. I recently finished an MLIS degree at a Canadian university. Many young people are unaware that Canada has NO abortion law. They don't know about partial birth abortion. I'll be adding you to my fav's.
God bless

Thanks for stopping by. The absence of any abortion law in Canada means an unborn child can be killed in the womb right up to the last moment practically, if a woman decides "to choose."
Perhaps it's not much different effectively than the law in the US in light of Roe v Wade, where for "health" reasons the same liberty prevails.
Visit again sometime.
