December 28, 2018 Rachel Rowbottom 0 Comments

2018 has come and gone, and a new year is almost upon us! It has been a great year, and Shuswap Pro-Life Society is so thankful for all the support of our members.

   Let's take a look back at all that we were able to accomplish with your help this year!

On May 3rd of this year, we hosted a Paster's Luncheon with Cameron Cote - the Western Director for the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform at the living Water's Church.
   Cameron also spoke at Five Corner's Church, to a large audience, about the Christian's responsibility in creating a culture of life. We were honoured to be able to have him as a speaker.

 At the Salmon Arm Fall Fair - September 7th to 9th, Shuswap Pro-Life had a booth. We were able to present information on abortion, euthanasia, and the worth of life. Free balloons, stickers, and pins were available as well.

   During the fair, we also had a lovely float in the parade, for the first time. There were many pro-life posters, and children riding on the floor, we also printed some pro-life teeshirts for this occasion.

 On September 16th we hosted a documentary called 'Fatal Flaws' at the Salmar Classic Theatre. It featured testimonies and information about Euthanasia. We had a decent turn up, and a doctor was also there to answer questions afterwards.

   On September 30th we had our annual life chain. There was a good turnout, despite it being a rainy and cold day. Thank you to everyone who joined us to give witness to the sacredness of life.

  On October 13th, we had the Hike For Life. It was a sunny and warm day, and we had hikers from 2 months old to 80 years old. Money was raised and shared with the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, and our own education projects. 


   This year we also put up a new Billboard - which reads "Canada has no abortion laws" weneedalaw.ca

    Our last event of the year was our Annual General Meeting, November 13th, which feature Alissa Golob from 'Right Now'. Her presentation highlighted the importance of knowing the political process & its involvement 
    Alissa also spoke to over 80 high school students at King's Christian School. Her talk centred on the humanity of the pre-born child, on abortion procedures, and the law. Students questionnaire responses said that their pro-life beliefs were reinforced. 

   Thank you all for your support, without you, none of this would have been possible. We wish you a very Happy New Year, and look forward to all that 2019 brings!
