Major Announcement: UNPLANNED, the movie has come to Canada!

Despite the limited number of viewing sites and dates allocated to the showing of UNPLANNED, the debut of the film about the journey of Abby Johnson from top Planned Parenthood administrator to staunch pro-life supporter was a tremendous hit!

UNPLANNED is a story about the discovery of truth and the impact that abortion has on all of its victims.

A Word from the President!

Dear Friends of Life:

It’s understandable look towards 2021 with a bit of uncertainty. We only need to look back at the past year to see HOW MUCH God has been working, even in these times of trial. I cannot thank you all enough for your love, prayers, and support over the past year. As we prepare for the new year, I wanted to take a moment to lay out some of our goals and plans at Right to Life Mississauga & Area, so that you may know with confidence that your partnership with us has not been in vain.

Key Areas of Focus – 2021

  • Grow and increase our impact through community partnerships. It is important that we continuously attract new members and expand our base of support
  • Be a resource and network for life issues throughout Mississauga and Brampton enabling improved sharing of all things “pro-life”
  • Attract more young people to the pro-life movement by reaching out to schools via school boards, trustees, school chaplaincies, as well as to church youth and young adult groups
  • Reach out to our federal MP’s to support the pending bill C233 known as “save the girls” bill; a private members bill introduced this year banning sex selective abortions which discriminate mostly against girls
  • Next year (2021) will be the 10th anniversary of 40 Days For Life campaign in Mississauga where faithful and dedicated people have prayed, fasted and stood on the sidewalk, near the abortion facility
  • Reach out to our Christian brothers and sisters in other denominations to further strengthen the pro-life message in our communities, bringing us closer to a nation free of abortion.

As we go forth into 2021, do not be afraid! It’s really important not to allow fear and challenge associated with this pandemic to distract us from essential moral issues like abortion and euthanasia. There is great reason for hope, because Christ has already won the victory! The rest is just “mop-up” work. Once these current restrictions are lifted, I look forward to personally meeting all of you at our events. From all of us at Right to life Mississauga & Area, we love you, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support and prayers!

In our latest (Fall 2020) newsletter you will be updated on key events and activities over the past 6 months as well as upcoming events in 2021, including 40 Days for Life Mississauga. While these are strange times for us, in Jesus’ day, war, hatred, unclean living and disease were very prevalent . The question we really need to ask ourselves is; “how can I make a difference?”.

40 Days for Life Mississauga September 23rd – Nov. 1st 2020

40 Days for Life Mississauga is in full compliance with Covid-19 protocols.

Watch out for the following events

Fatal Flaws documentary

After almost two years of hard work, Kevin Dunn’s 2nd documentary on euthanasia is ready for viewing.  Fatal Flaws features interviews with leaders of the euthanasia lobby and with people who have heart wrenching personal experiences with euthanasia and assisted suicide.  By juxtaposing the position of the euthanasia lobby with those individuals who have actually been affected by it, the fatal flaws associated with its legalization are readily identifiable.

Right to Life Mississauga & Area has purchased several copies to lend out for viewing in Churches, moms groups or just with friends and family. Please call or email us to borrow a DVD and help expose the truth.

Doctor Assisted Suicide in Canada: The Decision

(via: PEI Right to Life)

Today Canada makes history as the Supreme Court releases its decision on assisted suicide in the Carter Case. It comes as no surprise to many of us who have been following this issue closely. The decision to strike down the Criminal Code prohibition of assisted suicide and force Parliament to legislate on this issue was imminent.

There will be plenty of language around “safe guards” and “strict guidelines” to prop up the decision, but the principle will have never-the-less been established. The Supreme Court of Canada will now accept that a doctor can kill instead of care for patients whose lives have become difficult and vulnerable due to age, illness or disability. What was once a criminal offence will become an acceptable medical practice.

This decision affects every Canadian now and in the future. It will teach this generation and generations to come that some lives are not worth living, that killing patients can be a medical option, and that death at the hand of a doctor is somehow a human right.

This decision will also have a lasting impact on our physicians, who may be pressured to either administer death or face professional censorship and discipline.

It will inevitably shift public opinion to consider assisted suicide a human right, with corresponding duties on doctors to act. Doctors can and will be pressured to submit to an act of killing patients against their will and better judgment.

We have been warned by experts such as Dr. Theo Boer,* that regardless of safeguards, laws that essentially allow one person to take the life of another lead inexorably over time to patient killing on demand and the non-voluntary killing of those deemed to have low quality of life in society (e.g. those with dementia).

The Supreme Court has bowed to the winds of change, and been blown about by popular fads rather than standing firm on the ever present principles of justice and protection of all human life.

LifeCanada is concerned for the lives of the vulnerable, but we also are concerned that this new decision will teach generations of Canadians that the value of human life is not inherent, but rather subjective and dependent upon circumstances, a very dangerous premise indeed.
