Pro Life Signs in Halifax NS


This is a photo-shopped image of what will be a new pro-life effort in Halifax. Some of us from the 40 Days vigil have been talking about raising public awareness on this issue.

The witness to life is infrequent and not terribly effective. What witness we do present is usually to those who agree with us, "preaching to the choir" as they say, and those who oppose us are often quite aggressive and hostile.  We felt there must be a different way to present our message.

So we talked about putting up billboards and bus shelter ads and ads on the buses themselves. Even if people don't like our message, they will still see it and I believe that it will be like casting seeds. Some will fall by the wayside, some will fall on rocky soil, but some will fall on good soil and will take root. Those are the people we are hoping to reach.

This is all about changing hearts and minds with positive images, that are accompanied with a challenging message.

The photo above was given to us by a professional photographer, it is his own son Luc.
You can visit his website at

Beautiful photos there, this is his son Luc Gabriel who is now about four months old. The words are (in case they are too small for you to read)  Luc was born today, but his life began nine months ago.

I can't wait for this project to get realised. All we need now is money!  yes, the finances to put up the photos. Once we put up this first sign, we have a second sign ready to go, all depending upon the financial resources.

I am so excited about this, that I just had to share it with you. Please spread the word. Things are going to happen in this city, despite all the apathy that exists here, despite the strong vocal pro-choice group that permeates this town, despite the very feminist attitude that exists here.  Beautiful babies and words to penetrate people's consciences will win the day. Truth will win.

I love the idea. I'm going to steal the blurb for a French pro-life meme I'm working on.

Please do, with pleasure.

I saw this yesterday and want to say thank you for keeping this issue in the front of peoples minds. Some find it offensive when really it is not the photo that is offensive but the fact they are being reminded of exactly what abortion is. This is a beautiful picture of a little person; tastefully done. Thanks
