Take Action – Stand with Carleton University Students


On October 4th four students were arrested on their campus at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada simply for holding graphic signs of human injustice.  The students were arrested for trespassing and received a fine.

Now the student group has been informed by the Student Association that they either renounce their pro-life belief or lose their campus status entirely! Even more incredibly insane is the fact that the Student Association is citing their “non-discrimination” policy which upholds a “woman’s right to choose.”  So, if you oppose a mother’s ability to abort her own child you are discriminated against based on the non-discrimination policy? Did your head just spin completely around?

The pro-life student group on campus, Carleton Lifeline needs your help.  They can not loose their student group status or their pro-life work (the only lifeline to many young, scared pregnant moms on campus at Carleton) will be greatly diminished.

Here is what you can do to support their work:

  1. Pray for them – pray that the Student Association has a change of heart and that the school chancellor has a change of heart as well
  2. Learn more – don’t take my word at it, go here to find out more information, listen to an interview of one of the students who were arrested and watch a video of them being arrested
  3. Contact their school chancellor – do so respectfully but let them know how ridiculous this is. Click here for name and contact info
  4. Sign a petition – join others in demanding an end to the discrimination.  Again, to sign it click here

Rock For Life has joined a few other pro-life and pro-life youth organizations to Stand With Carleton! A Pro-Life Student group should not be discriminated against and shut down while trying to educate their own peers to the greatest injustice of all time – abortion! Stand with Carleton! Stand for Human Rights for All!

Please spread the word, thanks!

    It’s insane to me that this is happening in the United States of America. What happened to freedom of speech and of the press??

    • Leah, It’s in Ottawa, Canada but still… Hope this kind of discrimination doesn’t make its way into the US…
