Political Report - February 2019

 

The United Conservative Party’s (UCP) nomination process is almost wrapped up, with only 6 ridings (out of 87) left to vote. If your riding hasn’t voted, please take out a membership and get involved in the process! 

As it stands, if the UCP wins the upcoming election, then we will have the most pro-life legislature in decades, and maybe ever. The nominations have gone very well for the pro-life movement, however, as always, we now need to keep the candidates who won their nominations accountable and on track to enacting pro-life policy should they win in the general election. 

The next step, once the last nominations are completed, is the general election this spring. The Wilberforce Project is now pivoting our efforts from getting pro-lifer’s nominated to getting nominated pro-lifers elected. We have some big plans to make the pro-life movement a powerful force in the upcoming election, but we will need your help! 

We're currently looking for volunteers who are willing to: 

  1. Do door-to-door canvassing (in select parts of the province)
  2. To make phone calls (from the comfort of your own home!) 

If you can help with either of those two things, then please email volunteer@twp.life and let our new Volunteer Director know that you're interested in being involved!

 

Best, 

Cameron Wilson
Director of Political Action,
The Wilberforce Project

Edit (02-07-2019) In response to recent inquiries: The Wilberforce Project is willing to work with any political party, including the NDP, and we welcome Rachel Notley's recent statement that pro-lifers are welcome in her party. Unfortunately when we reached out to her office to discuss ways we can improve public policy in Alberta, her office gave us no substantive response.

    Can we call it what it is, please? Pro-birth… not pro-life. Pro-life means you are there to do whatever it takes to support mothers to raise their children. You are there to assist with food, shelter and clothing for the family you demanded not to terminate. You are sticking with this family and keeping their best interests at heart. You are educating these children. You are funding health care and sex education. Don’t mix pro-birth up with pro-life. They are two totally different things.

    Hi Jilian. I’m all in favor of helping single mothers. I’m willing to talk ideas, if you are interested.

    Oh Jillian, read the Supreme Court decision that struck down the abortion law. In the Morgentaler Decision, the Court invited Parliament to make a new abortion law. They said Parliament has the final say, not them.

    Yo douchebag, hate to break it to you but even if you twats won every seat the Supreme Court has already had the final say on your dumb ideas. Why don’t you find something useful to occupy your time with, like helping single mothers?

    Hi Bill! I absolutely agree that the Canada Child Benefit should begin at pregnancy! In fact, I’ve been looking into ways that the government can create a more “pregnancy positive” economic environment. I would love to chat with you about that sometime!

    I suggest a social media campaign by young women advocating for gestation limits to stand against the “mad libertines” like the GovOfNY that would endorses elective abortions up to the moment of birth. Advocate to enhance the Canada Child Benefit to begin at pregnancy, if a woman wants. Advocate for a $1Billion “Give that child to me” fund to facilitate and promote adoption.

    Cheers. God Bless.
