You can help Campaign Life Coalition by attending an all-candidates meeting 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
- Organizations like Planned Parenthood (PP) and its affiliate, The Canadian Federation for Sexual Health (CFSH), routinely counsel women to have abortions. Given that abortion is a controversial practice that many taxpayers in your municipality find abhorrent, do you agree that PP (or CFSH) should not receive taxpayer funds through the city?
- Do you acknowledge that human life begins at conception (fertilization)?
- Do you consider yourself pro-life___ or pro-choice___?
