“Why I March for Life”: a young activist shares her history with the National March for Life

By Taylor Hyatt

For many frustrated pro-life advocates, 2017 got off to a great start. The movement received some unexpected attention when the network of Women’s Marches took the world by storm.

Thousands will gather on Parliament Hill on May 11. Taylor Hyatt will be one of them.

In particular, the Washington protest ignited a fierce debate after its organizers denied the pro-life group New Wave Feminists an official sponsorship role.

“I stay involved in the pro-life movement because it is right and just.” Jeffrey Belanger, London, Ont.

“I stay involved in the pro-life movement in Canada because without true commitment and dedication to the movement, the status quo surrounding abortion will not change. Innocent human beings will continue to be murdered, and mothers will continue to be exploited. I stay involved in the movement because I want to see a day that abortion is abolished in Canada; a day when human life is protected from its earliest stage; a day when Canadians sanctify human life rather than destroy it.” Carter Grant, Campaign Life Coalition Toronto

“I stay involved in the pro-life movement in Canada because the pay is below average, levels of stress is high, I work days, evenings, weekends, and I haven’t had a real vacation in 3 years. I question my involvement in the movement every day and after almost 4 years of working for Campaign Life Coalition, I still don’t know why I keep coming back, but I do.” Matthew Wojciechowski, Campaign Life Coalition Communication Director, Toronto

“I can help end abortion in my lifetime. In Canada alone, 300 children are killed every single day throughout all nine months of pregnancy, paid for by your tax dollars.” Yvonne Boon, Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform, Calgary
