Dear Friends "for Life"
Pro-life supporters have taken the top spot in a CBC-sponsored contest on the popular online network "Facebook" to find the issue most important to Canadians, with the wish "abolish abortion in Canada." With 10,386 entries (at the time of writing), the pro-life category has outstripped competitors by a generous margin. The closest
contender for first place is the wish "that Canada would remain pro-choice," at 8,827 entries—the anti-life category was created to counter the growing support for opposition to abortion. But, the anti-lifers are narrowing the gap and actually took the lead for a short period of time.
The contest has triggered fierce debate in comments posted on the CBC website and has gained the attention of mainstream media outlets, as the competition between pro-life and anti-life supporters has intensified. The competition will end on July 1, when the winning side will be announced on air and will be given air time. It is VERY
important to win this competition, because as you know, we often don't get our fair share of media exposure. As pro-lifers, we must take a stand for life at every opportunity in our to build a culture of life. This is a GREAT opportunity.
To add your vote for an end to abortion in Canada, see below for instructions on joining the competition. You must register on Facebook to enter—you can cancel your registration once you have added your vote.
