09 Nov 2016 On Bill C-16: Gender Ideology, Freedom, and our Neighbours’ Good

Take Action: Use one of the three EasyMail letters to share your concerns with your MP before C-16 sails through the House of Commons Bill C-16, if passed, will amend the Canadian Human Rights Act to outlaw discrimination on the basis of “gender identity” and “gender expression”. It would also amend the Criminal Code to prohibit “hate propaganda” about a group of people distinguishable by their gender identity or gender expression. And it would make bias, prejudice or hate “based on gender identity or expression” an aggravating circumstance when it is a motivating...

26 Oct 2016 Palliative Care: A more dignified option

Support C-277 Last year the Supreme Court of Canada overturned hundreds of years of legal, medical, and moral precedent, when it struck down the Criminal Code prohibitions on assisted suicide in the Carter case.  The Supreme Court gave Parliament the task of creating a system in which some people may kill others in some circumstances. On June 17, Bill C-14 became law after bouncing back and forth between the Senate and House of Commons. This law formally legalized euthanasia and assisted suicide in Canada. While the law was being crafted, we were able to engage with this policy debate in a huge way. With your help and by God’s grace, our message resulted in some positive changes to the law and helped mitigate the evil that was being endorsed by many Canadians.

26 May 2016 Call for Prayer

ARPA Canada is respectfully calling our Canadian brothers and sisters in the Lord to a day of sobriety, humility, prayer, and fasting on Monday, May 30. Bill C-14, which would legalize and normalize killing the weak and vulnerable, may receive its final vote in our House of Commons as early as May 30, and if passed, will be voted on in the Senate shortly thereafter. Sadly, much of the opposition to C-14 is coming from MPs and Senators who are demanding that it be even more radical, for example, by extending the killing to...

19 Feb 2016 Phone Script Bill 10 Response

Dear {MP}, I'm calling in response to the Education guidelines that have been required of all schools by the Ministry of Education. Rather than listening to the medical testimony and the positions of many international psychological and health organizations this government is pushing ahead with what it considers to be the right path. Most concernincly, the encouragement of conditioning of children with hormones, surgeries and other dangerous medical practices enforces this process as valid and even as ideal. Yet this government is sponsoring this move and forcing the schools to...

10 Feb 2016 Euthanasia Phone Script

**Phone Script** Hello [MP], As you are aware, there is incredible pressure right now to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide.    Once the right to life becomes subjective, it becomes impossible to enact safe-guards. If one person has a "right" to die because of how they feel about their condition, why can't someone else? Suddenly it becomes the government's duty to kill all those who want it. At the same time, everyone else who qualifies (because of a disability etc) suddenly has to justify their existence in the face of...

14 Jan 2016 Euthanasia Talking Points

Some argue that the legalization of euthanasia and assisted suicide is inevitable in Canada. However, we are not willing to give up the fight to uphold the inviolability of human life and to protect the vulnerable. The Supreme Court, Parliament, and secular society at large, are overriding the work of Christians through the centuries to bring public awareness to the value of human life, as established in God our Creator and sustainer. The court is removing rights established by Christian thought, and forcing the regression of morality back in time...

17 Apr 2015 Action Alert: Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide Law

After taking the time to study the Carter Supreme Court decision and consult other experts, ARPA Canada is thankful to release our new policy report, which makes a principled, well-researched, and legally feasible case to Parliament to do everything in its power to criminalize euthanasia and assisted suicide. As we explain in the report, even after the Carter Supreme Court decision, Parliament has the means to draw a clear line that upholds the sanctity of human life. Doing so will require courage - so we are asking our readers to...
