Calgary, AB, May 22, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Canadian pro-life group that is distributing postcards showing the graphic reality of abortion in the ridings of politicians who the group says have “failed the children” has announced the second object of their campaign: Calgary Centre-North MP, Michelle Rempel.
Rempel is the second of five politicians at the heart of the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform’s (CCBR) controversial “Face the Children” campaign. The announcement that CCBR is targeting Rempel follows on the heels of a sweeping postcard distribution last week in Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Riding.
CCBR’s postcard show Rempel’s face next to a 6-month aborted fetus. It highlights the fact that Rempel was named one of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women by the Women’s Executive Network, and that she has been listed as “pro-choice” by Canada’s most radical abortion “rights” group, the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada.
“As a powerful woman, Ms. Rempel should be protecting Canada’s powerless children, but she failed them last fall,” said Stephanie Gray, executive director of CCBR.
Gray is referring to Rempel’s vote against Motion312 in the fall of 2012. Motion 312 was proposed by MP Stephen Woodworth. It asked Parliament to strike a committee and examine whether or not Canada’s criminal code was in line with modern science about when life begins. Currently the criminal code says a child doesn’t become a human being until “It has completely proceeded, in a living state, from the body of its mother.”
Motion 312 failed. The postcard says, “The defeat of Motion 312—thanks to Rempel and other MPs—means that pre-born humans can continue to be killed during all nine months of pregnancy.”
A 2013 Environics Poll found 60% of Canadians say human life should receive legal protection by the sixth month of pregnancy. Abortions are permissible in Canada through all nine months of pregnancy.

“It is increasingly difficult for pro-life MPs to broach the abortion issue without facing backlash from opposition parties or their own,” said Gray. “This needs to be reversed—now, politicians who won’t change the status quo that permits the dismemberment of the next generation of Canadians will be the ones to face backlash.”
CCBR is remaining tight-lipped about who its next three MP targets are, but said it is selecting MPs based on their voting history regarding matters that affect the pre-born.
Gray said, “For years, politicians who discriminate, based on age, against pre-born children have maintained Canada’s bloody ideology unimpeded. It’s time that people were exposed to the reality of what the voting records of certain MPs actually mean—that in Canada, where you live may well dictate if you live.”
Face the Children is part of a series of controversial projects CCBR’s young staff of 21 have been doing. Most recently they made waves in Toronto, where they stand outside high schools five days/week with abortion imagery—a project they started in Calgary two years ago and have since maintained there too.
And 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 it calls “EndtheKilling,” which they say will enable them to fulfill their goal of ending abortion in their lifetime.
