Today, Youth Protecting Youth is engaging UVic students in a celebration of the life and dignity of all people, but especially of women. Beside a visual display, YPY members are explaining how their club is both pro-women and pro-life. The display shows women in their beauty and dignity at every stage of life, beginning with a picture of an unborn child and finishing with one of an elderly woman.
Our message to UVic today is that abortion is a sign that society isn’t meeting women’s needs or honouring their dignity. We believe in that dignity, so we are celebrating it with a compliment: giving students flowers. Attached to the flowers is this information about where women (and men) can receive support if they are ever facing crisis pregnancy, or dealing with the effects of abortion.
