The Pro-Life generation is growing

Re: N.B. March for Life event The annual Pro-Life march in Ottawa on May 9, with over 25,000 in attendance, is a growing event in many other cities across the Canada. In Victoria, B.C. the March for Life attracted over 1,800 participants, who as citizens of a democracy are seeking political and legislative solutions to abortion in Canada. As young people in ever-growing numbers become involved in the pro-life movement, it is obvious they enjoy letting society see that they are speakers for the culture for life and are not afraid to talk about the brutality of abortion. From a political perspective, politicians with any thought of a future in politics and who want to be viewed as one, who are concerned for the common good, could be considered politically blind if they don't show support for young people by speaking out against the killing of the unborn. In the New Brunswick March for Life, held in Fredericton on May 16, MLAs from the Liberal and Conservative caucuses attended. Their presence, coupled with bus loads of supporters from Bathurst, the Acadian Peninsula, Dalhousie, Edmundston, Saint John and Moncton, thrilled the Pro-Life organizers . A rmand LeBlanc, New Brunswick's State Deputy of the Knights of Columbus, in his presentation at the March for Life rally, reaffirmed his group's consistent support in protecting the rights of the unborn. The presentations; the leadership of Peter Ryan, executive director of the New Brunswick Right to Life Association; and the powerful and emotional testimony given by a women from the Bathurst area about the trauma her abortion had in her life, were a true reflection of the Pro-Life generation in New Brunswick. Clearly, this March for Life in New Brunswick was the voice of the unborn who can't speak for themselves. Terry F. Whalen Sr. Miramichi, N.B.
