It was very cold and windy, but PPO was proud to join around 150 pro-choice folks to lend our voices and stand for choice at this year’s Pro-choice Presence during the “March for Life.”
As part of an annual response to the “March for Life,” PPOers join with other pro-choicers near Parliament Hill and on Elgin Street to continue to support the right to safe, legal, and supported pregnancy and contraceptive options. With colourful signs and loud voices, or standing in silent support, PPOers joined many new and familiar faces of the pro-choice community and reaffirmed PPO’s belief in the right of every individual to make their own decisions about their sexual and reproductive health.
This is often a challenging experience, made even more so with anti-choice tactics such as Motion 312 receiving attention in Parliament recently. However, PPO remains energized and will continue to work in support of access to safe, legal, and supported reproductive health services.
