Calgary, Alberta

Steve Karlen, our North American outreach director, helped the team in Calgary kick off their campaign.

“As is the case with many Canadian campaigns,” Steve said, “the situation in Calgary is challenging. Because of a court injunction, the vigil participants are required to stand across the street from the abortion center.”

The volunteers “were delighted to hear how the no-show rate for abortion appointment skyrockets when there are people praying in front of the building.”

This abortion facility is not clearly marked … so it isn’t always clear why there are people praying out on the sidewalks. “Nevertheless,” he said, “the campaign in Calgary knows of at least one baby saved through their efforts, which makes is all worth it for them.
