Why Choose Life?

April 20th, 2014

Why choose life?

“If the unborn is not a human being, no justification for abortion is necessary. If the unborn IS a human being, no justification for abortion is adequate”

Sometimes we have to face the hard truth no matter how difficult our situation. You can call it a Zygote, a fetus or a clump of cells but the unborn are still living human beings. Science tells us this. The unborn are simply at a different stage of development in the same way that a toddler is at an earlier stage of development than an adult or senior. It’s size, development, environment or dependency do not make it any less human.  We all know it is morally wrong to kill an innocent human being no matter how they effect us or how inconvenient it is to have them around and for these reasons we know it is wrong to kill the unborn.

Abortion denies a baby it’s right to life and hurts women physically, emotionally and psychologically. HPL supports women’s health, rights and freedom of choice by enabling them with the resources needed to carry their child to term. We direct women to the economic, emotional and future resources they may need to choose life for themselves and their offspring.

*There are positive solutions

to the struggles life brings*

 

Our resource centre at 760 Brant St. Burlington Ontario is filled with Brochures, Books & DVDs to inform you on all the life topics. If you are in a crisis situation and don’t know where to go for help or don’t know how to think through the choices that face you we can show you where to go to get the help you need!

25 th Anniversary of the Decriminalization of Abortion

January 28th, 2013

Today marks the anniversary of the Canada Supreme Court ruling to decriminalize abortion in 1988. This is not a celebration of choice but a mourning of thousands of lives lost and damaged because of abortion. We remember this date to emphasize the importance of the Halton Pro-Life mission to educate our community into a respect for life from conception to natural death. Women in a crisis pregnancy have positive options and support in their local community thanks to many pro-life organizations that have partnered together.

Please continue to support the pro-life community and reach out to those that live in fear and confusion about what it means to be pro-life.

Annual Respect Life Banquet

June 26th, 2012

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Halton Pro-Life has, once again, an exciting evening planned for our 2012 Annual Respect Life Fundraising Banquet to be held on Friday, November 2, 2012 at the beautiful Oakville Conference & Banquet Centre. On behalf of the Board of Directors of Halton Pro-Life, I invite you to join us for an evening of fine dining, interesting information, entertainment and fellowship. Tickets are only $75/person and all funds raised go to promoting our vision to ‘transform Halton into a pro-life community’.

We are expecting 300 guests to hear Rebecca Keissling, International Pro-Life Speaker and Attorney. Rebecca was ‘conceived out of a brutal rape at knife-point by a serial rapist’. Her mother went to two back alley abortion clinics and changed her mind both times. Rebecca will share her story. ‘My value and identity are not established as a “product of rape,” but a child of God’. Rebecca has litigated numerous high-profile cases protecting preborn human life and speaks 50 to 75 times a year around the U.S., Canada and the world.

We are delighted to present Linda Binkley, Canadian Maja Award winner and Vibe Award nominee. Linda will entertain us with her ministering music.

Please contact our office for more information.
