100,000 pink and blue flags represent the number of abortions performed annually in Canada.
Despite our claims to value freedom of expression, abortion continues to be the only choice promoted and supported by our government. The Parliament building stands proudly behind decriminalized abortion, failing to feel shame at the 100,000+ human lives taken each year because of convenience, because they are girls, because there is a possibility they may have a disability. Abortion continues daily, while we fail to provide adequate support to women facing unplanned pregnancies, leaving them feeling that their only choice is really no choice at all. We need to stop treating abortion as a polarizing, black and white issue, and be willing to open the discussion on how Canada can join every other democratic nation in the world in restricting abortion and supporting women who carry our next generation.
