Transcript of PRO LIFE vs PRO CHOICE

"Politician Michelle Rempel supports abortion. And she wants to be your MP," says one of these postcards.
Pro 1
Have the freedom and right to choose whether or not to have a child.
Factors that Influence the Choice of Pro Life
Unborn children still have beating hearts and Pro-Life allows them to live.
Financial Issues
For families who are poor, they might not want a child.
They may want to avoid having to take care of a child they are not financially able to.
In the future, parents will not feel the guilt and unhappiness of having aborted their child, if they chose to give birth.
Kids that families don't want, don't have to be sent to orphanages or foster homes.
Religion Beliefs:
Society Influence:
Family Love
If you're giving birth to a child, you need to love them like family and not like any other child.
Believed by the Roman Catholic Church
Prohibiting abortion is correct
Abortion is assisted suicide and should have a death penalty
What is Pro-Choice?
What is Pro-Life?
The Pro-Choice/Pro Abortion movement tries to maintain that every choice is legal, including the following:
Celibacy and abstinence
Childbirth vs Abortion
The belief that the government has the responsibility to maintain all life regardless of the quality of life.
The movement is trying to ensure that all life created will live and unborn children won't be aborted.
Child may be born into a family who does not love him or her.
Baby may be born into a family that cannot take care of that child.
Child may have to live with a family who cannot support him/her or in an orphanage.
If a pregnant woman has friends who all love children, or all hate children, she may be pressured to keep or abort the baby.

By Feifei and Glorianna
Pro 2
Con 1
Con 2
Political Issues
Definition of Pregnancy: After the egg is being fertilized by a sperm and implanted on the lining of the uterus. The period from conception to birth.
Current events
Religious Issues

Medical/Scientific Perspectives
Medical definition of abortion
Any type of method used by the woman to get rid of the egg or the fertilized egg before or after it starts its implantation in the uterus.
Neglect and absence from parents or lack of care has a huge impact on a child's growth.
PRO LIFE perspective on
Pro Life activists believe that the beginning of life begins when the woman egg is beginning its fertilization. It begins at conception.
Uh....replace this with something more intelligent later.....

Orphan Statistics
Recent UNICEF reports estimate that there are approximately 143 million to 210 million orphans worldwide.
Not including the millions of children abandoned on streets unknown.
About 250 000 orphans are adopted each year around the world.
Each year, 14 505 000 children grow up as orphans and grow out of the orphan system at 16 years of age.
Studies show that 10% - 15% of these orphans commit suicide before they reach eighteen.
For every 15 000 orphans aged out of the system each year.
6000 of those orphans were homeless
5000 were unemployed
3000 were behind bars in 3 years
Growing up being homeless and unwanted... Many will resort to crimes because they feel like they have no other way to go.
In Canada, a more stable country, there are still approximately 45 000 orphans each year.
It is not considered as an abortion if the egg is killed before its implantation.
Does life begin at conception?
Issue in New Brunswick
There were three medical clinics that performed abortion.
The private medical clinic- Fredericton’s Morgentaler Clinic closed on July 23 2014
Developing babies are already alive, and Pro Life activists are trying to give them the right to live on.
Let's go home!

Medical definition of "LIFE"

According to the medicine dictionary in Merriam Webster
UNICEF's publication "The State of the World's Children" in 2005 estimated that 1.2 million children were trafficked each year.
The sequence of physical and mental
experiences that make up the existence of an individual
Having an adult life
British Columbia SOS Children's Village:
Qualities that distinguish a living animal from the dead.
SOS Children's Village in B.C. works with the Ministry of Children and Family Development and other social services to provide homes for children.
SOS Children's Village provides homes for orphans and abandoned children.
A living being...
Things such as- adaptation, growth and reproduction
Abortions can cause psychological effects to the parents to feel regret, sadness or even depression.
Abortion can cause psychological harm to parents of aborted children.
Studies say that 51. 6% of men who had partners who went through abortion experience regret, 45.2% experience sadness and 25.8% experience depression.
A study conducted in New Zealand in 2006 say that women who have gone through abortion have higher rates of anxiety, sadness or depression than those who have chosen to give birth.
Another study sponsored by the Ontario College of Physicians said similar things.

Post Cards
Pro Life activists want to make abortion illegal to keep rights for the baby, but this takes away birth rights from the mother.
The post cards were sent to some parts of Calgary, and many Calgarians were
Abortion is a choice poster: https://pisceanblogger.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/prochoice-1.jpg
Children were seeing these images
Hate towards politicians who are Pro Choice
Stephen Harper said, “I will not have legislation limiting a woman’s right to choose.”
Political Influences
Political Debates
Postcards in Calgary targeted MP Michelle Rempel as well as Stephen Harper.
Back in September...
Debates between New Brunswick political party leaders on abortion.
Liberal leader Brian Gallant announced that he was "pro-choice," and that if he were to form government he would go over the laws and remove any barriers for women's pregnancy rights.
Influences the way people think since these images and the words used affect the way people will think.
At the moment readers see these postcards, the way they think will have been biased and misdirected to make a proper decision.
Anti-Abortion Campaign in New Brunswick sent out Postcards as well
Postcards sent to residential mail boxes contained phrases such as "A vote for Brian Gallant and the Liberals is a vote for this," with an image of a five-month old fetus.
Gallant says debating and trying to influence the votes of others is normal but this crosses the line and becomes disappointing.
Significant numbers of complaints have been made but the police say there is nothing against the law with delivering these postcards.
Asked organizations to stop sending postcards, but they say they have no intention of stopping.
In Luke's Gospel, Jesus and John the Baptist 'greet' one another whilst they are still in the wombs of their mothers. Verse 41 of the first chapter says.
"It happened, when Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit."
During Earlier Christian Traditions- people treasured human life, born or not.
Canadians oppose Liberal Party Leader Justin Trudeau
What a Pro Life activist think about Pro choice
70% of Canadians believe Justin Trudeau didn't have the right to ban Pro-life candidates from joining his party's open nominations.
"If some of the pro choice arguments momentarily cloud and eclipse what you know to be right, realize it is simply because the devil is behind the persuasive rhetoric of the pro choice movement. He is fluent in the language of lies and uses the prevailing assumptions of culture, education, and media to draw us away from God’s thoughts about children and abortion and toward his.
-A Pro Life activist

The Orthodox Churches
Influences the way people see him, with 27% of respondents saying they would be less likely to vote for federal liberals while 22% said they would be more likely to vote for them.
The Orthodox Churches forbid abortion as going against the commandment 'Thou shalt not kill'. The Russian Orthodox Church is strongly against abortion.

-Judeo-Christian tradition- Luke 1:41-44

Jewish law forbids the taking of innocent life and stresses that human beings are made in the image of God. Maimonides, a twelfth century interpreter of Jewish law declared: "A descendent of Noah who kills any human being, even a fetus in its mother's womb, is to be put to death."
Woman Rights
Political leaders
Banning abortion would not stop abortion, only only make abortion less safe.
Every year 48,000-78,000 women die from unsafe abortions accounting for 13% of all maternal deaths worldwide.
Pro Life Candidates
Liberal Party
Premature exit of the product of conception, and the lose of pregnancy
Definition of Conception

If you are a pro LIFE activist and you stand between two people. Both people are far away from you, but if you run, you can reach them on time.
One person is holding a baby, another person is holding a plate with a fertilized egg. They both are about to drop what they’re holding down a 10 story building at the same time. As a pro life activist, which one are you going to save and which one are you going to have to let die?
If women become pregnant, they should accept the responsibility that comes with producing a child
People need to take responsibility for their actions and accept the consequences
Do you think there is a true right or wrong side in this issue? In other words, is this an issue told in black and white?
Sexual intercourse usually carries the consequence of pregnancy
What do you think could be a possible solution to this issue?
What is Plan B- they are pills which
temporarily stops the release of an egg from the ovary
Prevents fertilization
Prevents a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus
pro LIFE
Life starts at conception
Killing the fertilized egg is killing a person because it has the potential to become a human being
Plan B is not considered as an abortion pill because the pill kills the egg before implantation, therefore before pregnancy. It is not terminating a pregnancy.

KJV Bible translation of Exodus 20:13
