Defund Abortion Rally

On Oct. 23 a rally was held at Queen's Park to protest the use of taxpayer funds for abortions. It was sponsored by Campaign Life Coalition and featured mostly young people. About 2300 people attended, but I heard no word of it in the secular media. Here is a taste of the rally:

The contrast with the Occupy Wall Street nonsense is stark. Since the mainstream media share the anti-capitalist worldview of the OWS crowd, they are guaranteed favorable national coverage on a nightly basis.

We need to push this issue harder and force the media to notice. I think we greatly underestimate how many Canadians hate the scourge of abortion and wish it could be stopped. It is time for Evangelicals to get involved in swelling the numbers of the annual March For Life in Ottawa in May.
