26 Mar 2018 Call to Action: Great Riding Round-Up
When we launched the Great Riding Round-Up just over a month ago, your support was amazing. More than 200 people signed up across Canada, and more than 120 MPs are already starting to receive handwritten letters from you, people who care deeply about the more than 100,000 lives lost to abortion every year in Canada.
But we still have a lot of ridings to fill.
If you’ve signed up, make sure to get your letter written and sent! And if you haven’t signed up, we’d love to have you.
Here is some inspiration from letters that have been sent – feel free to use these snippets in your letter! It doesn’t have to be long or complicated, just a clear focused message that we need to regulate abortion in Canada.
“I am writing to you today to express my deep concern regarding abortion in Canada. We are the only first world nation with no legal protection for the most vulnerable among us; pre-born children. It is time to regulate abortion.”
“I, and many others in your riding, believe that stopping a beating heart should never be anyone’s “right”. So, I ask, how are you able to represent us against this clear discrimination [the Canada Summer Jobs grant attestation] of pro-life Canadians by our own government?”
“It is hard to believe that our Prime Minister, who persistently claims that “diversity is our strength” can, with such arrogance, simply write off the values of pro-life and pro-family Canadians.”
“I realize that abortion is not a topic politicians like to discuss. But this does not mean it should not be discussed.”
Thank you to those who shared your letters with us, and gave permission for us to share them. May our combined efforts have an impact that is felt across this country as our elected officials get the message that We Need a Law!
Wondering if there’s anything else you can do to help? See if you live in or know anyone in one of the following ridings we’re still looking to fill. This is just a sample – there are still plenty more to fill!
