LifeSiteNews has launched a new website called Charity in Truth. Inform yourself and sign the petition to ask for a thorough reform of Development and Peace which to this day still seems to be funding groups which promote abortion and other immoral practices.
Quebec Life Coalition is a proud sponsor of this call to reform.
It's time to ring the alarm !
Euthanasia is at our doors. We only have a few weeks (at most 3 or 4 months) to tell our MNAs to vote NO on a proposed law, soon to be tabled by the Parti québécois, that aims to de facto legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide in Quebec.
Legalizing euthanasia and assisted suicide will create a pseudo-"right" to suicide. And when suicide becomes a right guaranteed by the State, that means that some people (doctors and other health-care professionals) will be given permission to kill others, according to certain criteria... On top of that, us taxpayers will be compelled to foot the bill for it all! Some people will consider this a good thing, because they think they will have their "clean" and "painless" deaths this way. However, other people (the elderly, the disabled, the poor, the depressed and others) will feel compelled to seek death as a result of psychological pressure (whether due to impatient family members, a lack of hospital beds, succession battles, inadequate support, etc.)
What to do?

With your support, we will be able to tell the truth about the dangers of euthanasia in Quebec. Thank you for your support!

The irony of Obama's words in this video is amazing.
Unborn Child Jesus, I love you with all my heart, all my strength and all my soul because, from the very moment of your conception, you were in the world, true Man and true God. Forgive me, a poor sinner, for failing to recognize how you so utterly humiliated yourself for my sake. Help me understand that you, who are God, have lived as a small, defenseless unborn child in order to show me the priviledged way of humility and patience which leads to Everlasting Life.
O my Jesus, help me that I may never abandon the Mother whom you have given me, that I may enjoy the same peace that you enjoyed in her womb and that at the close of this dark age I may be born as you were born into the glory of God the Father. Amen.
This testimonial was emailed to us from a first-time participant to the 40 Days for Life:
I went today with my husband and our four kids, to support the prayer group in Montreal. It really got to me, and I can say it was an incredible experience. It is the first time we went, and I am going to be sincere, I never thought of finding such hostility on the part of people just passing by. It is really a spiritual combat we are living now. When we arrived, there was only one man from 40 days for life , quietly just next to the sign. I saw the counter-protestors standing next to Proabortion signs, so I figured where we should go right away to support. As soon as we got there, it didnt pass 5 min. when a young man, aroung 24 years old, started insulting and telling so many offensive, hurtful, and bad things to us, but mostly to the man with your tshirt on (Brian Jenkins the vigil coordinator--ed.). His formality, peacefullness and attitude was that of someone who is fill with patience that only God gives.
After that , we prayed one Hail Mary, he explained to us how the support works, we read as a family the meditation of the day, each of our kids taking turns to read. Then we just stood next to the big sign, my husband, and my kids. People passing by just cheered the proabortion group, sounded their cars, loud music, yelled, for support and even a public transportation bus blasted their horn for them ! We all stood there, astonished and praying, Which is the MOST important thing we could do. Then one man inside a mini bus yelled so many nasty things to all of us,and they even yelled to our kids to not listen to us, parents, because we were stupid! We just couldn't believe it! Another old man said it was stupid to pray for 40 days!! He said it was too long....
So, the first experience was kind of harsh for all of us, but Glory be to God. Suddenly one man inside a minivan, saw the other group, then saw us, and he waved at us in favor of the prayers and the Prolife campaign!!! Halleluiah!!!! My kids suddenly were all so full of joy . Later on our oldest son (18) told us that that man gave him the courage again of being there for the cause, when 98% of the people, cars that passed by, etc...were all looking at us as aliens just for supporting this cause. We finished at 7pm with a prayer guided by the man with the 40 days for life tshirt, and it was a very peaceful moment after all those difficult experiences. We then went to St Josephs Oratory for the 7h30 pm mass, and gave thanks to God for organizations like yours, for this movement for Life, and for all the troubled and uninformed women who are living with stress caused by an unwanted pregnancy.
God Bless you all, we hope to go again and as a family support your cause, that is ours too.
This fall's 40 Days for Life runs until November 4. Please come out and pray with us for an hour for the unborn !
Development and Peace (D&P), a humanitarian organisation founded by the Catholic bishops of Canada, has been repeatedly accused these past few years by LifeSiteNews and other groups and individuals of funding organisations that promote ideologies and engage in activities that run counter to Catholic teaching. These accusations have made a big splash in Catholic Canada, and after much initial denial, the bishops seem, at least implicitly, to have gotten around to admitting to at least some of what LifeSiteNews et al. had accused D&P of doing. And so in October 2009, the bishops struck an ad hoc committee with the mandate of overseeing D&P's work.
