UBC Lifeline invites you to…

Discourse.

an open forum discussion on the issue of abortion

Tuesday, November 26th from 5pm – 7pm in Henry Angus 350.

This will be our wrap-up event for the semester. We encourage everyone to attend, regardless of your opinion on this controversial issue, in order to facilitate a successful dialogue. Coffee and refreshments will be provided.

In the days leading up to the event, members of UBC Lifeline will be conducting a survey of students’ awareness and opinions on abortion in Canada. Results of this poll will be discussed on Tuesday and we hope to delve further into the issues of legislation and transparency. If you are visiting this website after completing the survey and talking to UBC Lifeline club members in the SUB, we hope to see you on Tuesday so we can continue our discussion. If you are unable to attend, we invite you to explore our website and corresponding links to find more information and think further about the issue.

“It’s a Girl” Documentary and Mark Warawa

Come join us for a screening of the documentary “It’s a Girl” on Tuesday March 12th at 6:30pm in Woodward 6 at UBC.

“In India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls. The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls are missing in the world today because of this so-called “gendercide”. … The film tells the stories of abandoned and trafficked girls, of women who suffer extreme dowry-related violence, of brave mothers fighting to save their daughters’ lives, and of other mothers who would kill for a son. Global experts and grassroots activists put the stories in context and advocate different paths towards change, while collectively lamenting the lack of any truly effective action against this injustice.” (www.itsagirlmovie.com)

Following the documentary, Langley MP Mark Warawa will give a overview of Motion 408, his proposition to END GENDERCIDE in Canada. He asks “that the House condemn discrimination against females, occurring through sex-selective pregnancy termination.”

Stephanie Gray Presentation – Abortion: Have We Gone Too Far?

Stephanie Gray is coming out to speak at UBC November 15th. Please join us and invite your friends. All are welcome. Hope to see you there. Here are the details:

Abortion: Have We Gone Too Far?

The CRIMINAL CODE OF CANADA states a child does not become a human being until “it has completely proceeded, in a living state, from the body of its mother.” CBC NEWS did an undercover investigation of ultrasounds in the Lower Mainland being used to lead to sex-selective abortions. A CANADIAN ABORTIONIST did an abortion on a woman who felt her pregnancy interfered with her trip to Hawaii. Have we gone too far? Come out on Thursday, November 15th from 5-7pm in LSK 200 at UBC to hear UBC alumnus and international speaker Stephanie Gray, of the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform, speak about this most contentious issue of our day.
