During this Advent Season, let me encourage you to support your local pro-life crisis pregnancy centre. Last week on S+L Radio
, speaking with Julie Abernethy, a street counselor for Toronto’s Aid to Women
, I found out that pro-life pregnancy centres receive zero
dollars from the government, while abortion facilities receive some $15 million in government funds. Those figures just take my breath away.
Tonight I am going to the El Mocambo
, one of Toronto’s best places to see live music, to listen to Joe Zambon
, Trish Cleyn and Blaise Alleyne and to support Aid to Women. The concert and silent auction begin at 7:30 pm. So, if you’re in the Toronto area and are looking for something to do tonight, that's the place to be. I hope to see you there.
Today, on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, we celebrate the spotless life of a young woman who faced an unplanned pregnancy. She had a choice and she chose life. While not all conceptions are immaculate, all conceptions are a miracle and a blessing. This Advent/Christmas, let’s choose life and help others to make the same choice.
