You can help Campaign Life Coalition by attending all-candidates meetings during election time and asking questions on life/family issues that force the candidates to divulge their position. Then report the answers back to us.
Sample questions you can ask at All-Candidates Meetings
- Do you support the alleged right of a woman to kill the child in her womb?
- Will you support measures to stop funding abortions with taxpayer money in Ontario?
- Do you acknowledge that human life begins at conception (fertilization)?
- Do you agree women have the right to be thoroughly informed about the serious health consequences of abortion, the development of their child in the womb and the alternatives to abortion?
- Will you support legislation which will acknowledge the right of health care workers to refuse to participate in procedures which are in violation of their religious or conscientious beliefs?
