BRAMPTON, Ontario, June 4, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Canadian pro-life group behind a campaign to distribute postcards showing the graphic reality of abortion in the ridings of pro-abortion federal politicians has announced that Brampton-Springdale MP Parm Gill is the 4th politician being compelled to “Face the Children.”

Gill was a member of the committee that deemed Motion 408 non-votable earlier this year. That motion called on the House of Commons to condemn sex-selective abortion, could not be debated or voted on. 

The Canadian Center for Bioethical Reform says it will circulate 50,000 graphic anti-abortion postcards in Gill’s riding, which show his face next to a 6-month aborted fetus with the caption: “MP Parm Gill betrayed vulnerable kids like her.” 

Stephanie Gray, executive director of the CCBR, said her group intends to deliver a postcard to every constituent’s home, “showing the face of Canada’s aborted children alongside the face that enables this slaughter.”

“If your career as a politician has condemned pre-born children to death, the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform demands that you face the children,” Gray said in an open statement to politicians. 

“We recognize that public opinion typically must change for public policy to change. And yet, public policy is not reflecting public opinion; that must change,” Gray said.  

“Over 90% of Canadians oppose sex-selective abortion which is currently not banned in Canada.  If we can’t count on our elected representatives to formally condemn this barbaric discrimination against girls with a simple motion, what can we count on them for?”

The postcard to Gill's constituents also draws attention to his “no” vote on Motion 312—a motion voted on last September that sought to strike a committee to examine whether or not Canada’s criminal code is in line with the scientific evidence surrounding the pre-born child in the womb. 

Currently, the Criminal Code of Canada says a child does not become a human being until he or she “has completely proceeded, in a living state, from the body of its mother.”  

As a result, abortions can take place through all nine months of pregnancy in Canada, funded by tax dollars. 

“Science shows us that the pre-born are human beings—and the actions of politicians like Gill to vote against Motion 312 means the gruesome status quo is maintained of denying humans their human rights,” said Gray. 

CCBR’s postcards are purposefully shocking. The first one featured Stephen Harper’s smiling face next to an image of a late-term aborted fetus, with the caption reading “Stephen Harper won't ban THIS.” 

The group said it started its campaign with Prime Minister Harper because of his unwillingness to have any legislation limiting abortion, or even to allow debate about abortion to occur in the House. 

“Prime Minister Harper’s cold indifference to the slaughter of pre-born children must be challenged,” said Gray. “His position to defeat any abortion-related legislation and to shut down debate in Parliament is so extreme that it means he is unwilling to ban abortion in the third trimester—pitting our prime minister against a majority of Canadians.” 

A 2013 Environics Poll found 60% of Canadians say human life should receive legal protection by the sixth month of pregnancy. 

“Face the Children” is part of a series of controversial projects in which CCBR’s young staff of 21 have been engaged.  

Most recently they made waves in Toronto. In their ‘Choice’ Chain demonstrations the pro-life youth stand outside high schools five days per week with abortion imagery—a project they started in Calgary two years ago and have since maintained there as well.  

Last year they launched a cross-country tour of anti-abortion activism with their “New Abortion Caravan,” a campaign that re-traced the steps of the old “Abortion Caravan” that abortion-supporting activists did in 1970 to repeal the abortion laws. 

The new Caravan kick-started CCBR’s plan of campaigns called “End the Killing,” which the group says will enable them to fulfill their goal of ending abortion in their lifetime. 

This summer alone the group said their “Face the Children” campaign will circulate 250,000 postcards reaching approximately half a million Canadians.
