Hello Edmonton Pro-Life,
We are the London Area Right To Life Association and we launched our National Pro-Life Youth Video Contest called #150WaystoLife on May 5th and would love your support. This video contest is requesting young pro-lifers (29 and under) to submit a video (3 minutes maximum) describing what they are doing for real maternal health and unborn rights in Canada. Award for 1st place is $1000, 2nd place is $500, and 3rd place is $250.
This video contest is also in celebration with Canada's 150th birthday. We will begin to post the finalists on July 1st; during this time, we will also promote our 150 ways to be Prolife in Canada infographic.This infographic will highlight how Canadians can be actively engaged in the pro-life movement. We will have information directing readers to various organizations throughout Canada. If you have a short statement about how Canadians can get involved with your organization, please email us back so that we can include you in our infographic. On July 1st, we will launch our infographic and would also love your endorsement and promotion during this time.

The Catholic Bishops of Alberta have released a letter of endorsement for the March for Life, encouraging all to attend on May 11th.
"As Catholics we know that every human life, from fertilization to natural death, is a precious gift. We are committed to protecting everyone, especially the most vulnerable. We are committed to offering mercy, comfort and love to those who suffer, not murder (cf. Ex 20:13; Mt 19:18).
"We are also called to proclaim the Gospel message of life and love, through word and witness, to the world. One way to do this is by joining the Bishops of Alberta at the annual March for Life on Thursday, May 11. We invite you to pray with us at the Mass for Life at 10 a.m. at St. Joseph Basilica in Edmonton. Following the celebration of the Eucharist, we will gather at 12 noon at Sir Winston Churchill Square, and walk together to the Alberta Legislature and back. Advocates for life will speak at both locations. A special invitation is extended to our Catholic teachers and students."
