31 Mar 2014 ARPA Oxford Hosts Abortion Memorial

The following is a press release issued by ARPA Oxford about their recent abortion memorial. Memorial to aborted pre-born Canadians raised on Hwy. 3 Dozens of men, women and children have helped to build an abortion memorial in Elgin County. The memorial was built March 29 by the Association for Reformed Political Action (ARPA) Oxford in a highly visible location on Highway 3 just east of Aylmer. The goal of the memorial is to trigger discussions on Canada’s status quo of unrestricted and publicly funded abortion-on-demand. “In Canada, abortion is legal throughout all nine months of pregnancy and paid for by our tax dollars,” said James Van Gurp, vice-chairman of ARPA Oxford. “We’re hoping that pro-lifers and abortion supporters alike will be given reason to reflect on the 100,000 pre-born Canadians killed in the womb every year.”
