In 2016 we attended the March for Life in Ottawa for the first time. Our team was small but mighty!
This year, we sent a bus-load from Ajax, Ontario!
Our bus left bright and early from Westney Heights Baptist Church and our marchers enjoyed excellent coffee and muffin service from WHBC's Pastor Jack.
We arrived in time to join the Rally on Parliament Hill with thousands of other pro-lifers.
Our bright green gear really stood out!
The March for Life was a new experience for all but one of our CHOICE42 marchers. Here's what they had to say:
Our bright green signs made it into CBC and CTV news coverage. Unfortunately, the reporting was less than great as the media reported "hundreds" rather than thousands! #BiasedMuch

"mommin' is the toughest, yet most rewarding emotional rollercoaster you can imagine! as a mom, i am stretched thin and in so many different directions all at once, but the deep love i have for my kids is what gives me purpose to start again each day! circumstances may have brought you to a place where you find yourself pregnant, but don't feel emotionally or physically able to be a mom. it's ok to be scared! it's normal to be uncertain! if you are overwhelmed or alone, i urge you to seek a safe haven @choicefortwo there are so many options for you and your precious baby! i urge you to choose love... i urge you to choose LIFE 💛 let's speak up, Canada, for those who don't yet have a voice! #npltd17" - Sonja
