Welcome!

Welcome to the new blog for Queen's Alive!

For years, Queen's Alive has been defending the right to life at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. From the instant of conception to the moment of natural death, every human being, without exception, is entitled to a set of fundamental human rights. The right to life is the most essential and basic of these. Recent legalization and growth in abortion, euthanasia, and other life-destroying activities is gradually eroding this human right.

This blog will help to update the Kingston and Queen's communities on our efforts to communicate this conviction through pro-life speakers, demonstrations, and community outreach. Here are some upcoming events:

September 22-23, 2009 are "Clubs Days" at Queen's University. We will have a display for Queen's Alive and will be giving out pamphlets in an effort to involve new students! If you are interested in helping out, please email Emilie Bruno, president of Queen's Alive, at queens.alive@gmail.com.

September 25-27, 2009 is the NCLN Symposium. We're looking for first-year students to go to this fantastic conference! We will ensure that your costs of attending/travel are covered, so all that's required is a bit of enthusiasm! The website is: http://www.ncln.ca/symposium.php?id=1

September 30, 2009 Guest speaker JOSE RUBA of the Canadian Centre for Bio-ethical Reform is coming to Queen's University campus! This is a great honour for us and a fantastic opportunity to expose others to the movement. The talk will be held at 7:00 PM in Dunning Rm. 12. Please invite anyone and everyone! We'll be advertising this event on campus for the next few weeks.

October 4, 2009 is 22nd annual Life Chain, which happens across Canada and the United States. We will be joining the Campaign Life Coalition in front of the hospital on King Street between the hours of 1:45-3:00PM. This is a peaceful demonstration and details can be found on the website: http://www.lifechain.net/

The tentative date for our next general meeting is October 14, 2009.
