Sask. Pro-Life and We Need A Law have initiated a campaign asking Legislators to enact a Parental Consent law to protect young girls and their families.

(We Need A Law is a Canadian lobbying group, working at establishing ANY laws that would deal with abortions - did you know that in Canada it is legal to abort a child at any time, up to birth?)
 
We have petitions to sign – that will only take 50 seconds of your time.  
The petition requires PRINTED full name,  address and phone number clearly written by any aged person who can sign legibly, and a signature.
Blank copies of this petition could also be taken home to fill with signatures of family or friends. All petitions need to be returned to us or mailed to the SPLA office in Regina. 
 
We are also asking that you share our website on facebook and other media. The website is www.sk.parentalconsent.ca and there you will find the 3–click lobby to send a letter to your Member of the Legislative Assembly.  It is a simple and an effective way to have your voice heard.

Also, we have postcards available for you to send your MLA.  The postcards are another effective lobbying tool. Just add the name of your MLA, put on your return address, postage stamp and sign.   We encourage you to BOMBARD your MLAs with whatever means available to you.

Church Presentation

The following is a sample of a brief presentation that you can use to introduce the Parental Consent initiative to your church.
 
 This is only a suggested script for your use if you are to make a group or church presentation:
 
Good morning!
Thank you (pastor, father...) for the opportunity to speak to you on behalf of Saskatchewan Pro-Life.
 
Did you know that, in Saskatchewan, young teenage girls can have an abortion without their parent’s consent or knowledge?
The bizarre part of all this, is that a teenaged girl needs her parents permission to get a body piercing, a tattoo or use a tanning bed.  Why would they not need a parent’s permission to get an abortion, which is a very serious medical procedure?

Sask. Pro-Life (and We Need A Law) have initiated a campaign asking Legislators to enact a Parental Consent law to protect young girls and their families and to give the parents the right and responsibility of their child’s decisions..
(We Need A Law is a Canadian lobbying group that was formed to encourage our governments to establish laws of some sort to deal with abortion since now, in Canada, there a NO laws and a baby can get aborted at ANY time, even up to birth)
 
We have petitions to sign – that will only take 50 seconds of your time. The petition requires you to PRINT your full name, put in your address and phone number clearly written by persons of any age who can sign legibly - please be sure to sign the petition.
 
I will read the petition to you so that it saves you time after and you won't have to read the whole thing - it is short...

Why I can't Wait

Sanctity of Life

Sanctity of Life

Sanctity means 'the quality of being sacred or holy.'

Christians often talk of human life as being sacred. They refer to the sanctity of life when considering issues such as abortion, euthanasia, embryo research, the care of disabled or the elderly.

In The Bible, Genesis chapter 1 verse 27 God is described as creating the first humans. The Bible says, ' So God created people in his own image; God patterned them after himself; male and female he created them.'

Christians believe that God created every human to be unique. There is a beautiful passage in the Bible, Psalm chapter 139 verses 13-16 where it describes a very caring God intimately creating us in our mother's womb: 'You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous - and how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. ... Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.'

Christians believe all human life is sacred because:

  1. God is the giver of life. The Bible, Ecclesiastes chapter 3 verses 1-3 says 'There is a time for everything. A time to be born and a time to die ...' Christians believe God gives and takes away life as he pleases.
  2. Christians believe God created human life and it should be preserved. Nothing is more important than the life God has given.
  3. Every life has a purpose. God destined (or meant) for each of us to be born (Psalm chapter 139 verses 13-16). He took care when creating us. All life is important and shouldn't be wasted.
  4. God decides when life begins and ends. Murder is forbidden in the 10 Commandments (Exodus chapter 20 verse 13). It is not acceptable to take away a life God has created ... It isn't acceptable to kill someone else and taking your own life is not considered a good thing.

The belief that Christians have in the sanctity of life often leads Christians to oppose euthanasia . They believe to deliberately end a life, even one of a terminally ill patient, is destroying a life God has made. Equally, many Christians see abortion as destroying something God is making inside the mother. The belief in the sanctity of life makes it difficult for a Christian to assume that he or she can choose to end a life at any stage. That, Christians believe, is the responsibility of God, not individuals, medical boards or government.

Letter from the CCCB President to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada on assisted suicide

duroche

Dear Minister,

Further to the ruling of the Supreme Court of Canada this past February 6, the Catholic Bishops of Canada welcomed the announcement you made in media interviews last month when you said that the federal government will soon reveal details of its public consultations regarding new legislation on assisted suicide. More recently, my brother Bishops and I also noted media reports a few weeks ago which quoted you as saying that the consultation, "while not formally announced, has begun."
