Unstoppable Presentation

Catalysts: Will the next generation reject abortion?

  • Who is it that determines the values of a culture?
  • Who is it that sparks change, for better or worse?
  • Who is it that rises up to confront injustice?

Throughout history, there has always been one group of people who rise up to defend against injustice. One group of people who say no, one group of people who wish for something better and do it.

Young people are often the catalyst for change, whether that change is good or bad. In Canada today, the pro-choice movement has successfully pushed an entire generation towards abortion. This has lead to full acceptance of abortion on demand, the promotion of abortion in every educational institute and the training of young minds to accept abortion without question. Most millenials today accept abortion without question and consider the position obvious. The next generation, GenZ, has shown signs of openness to the pro-life perspective but fundamentally leans towards accepting abortion, no questions asked.

How did this happen? The pro-life choice movement successfully influenced Canadian culture through powerful mediums such as the government, online dissemination of positive pro-choice marketing,  journalism, educational systems, medical fields, and the courts. Through these channels, Canadians became convinced that abortion on-demand is basic right for women. This has become the status quo despite Canada now being the only democracy in the world with no restriction on abortion.

All of these institutions favour abortion and regularly censors any other perspective. In order to win back our country, we must ensure the next generation rejects abortions as they become leaders of our nation. It’s time we take them back and restore the minds and hearts of young Canadians.

We believe that young people will change the world and that change can change the trajectory of an entire generation.

The time is now. NCLN’s Momentum Tour will aim to  train 100 pro-life young people to join our 21 pro-life clubs that stand between a young woman and her local abortion clinic. This will double the number of young people actively standing against this grave injustice thereby creating momentum for life.

Will you stand with us?

About Ruth Shaw

Ruth Shaw is the Executive Director of National Campus Life Network. She began pro-life work in 2007 as a member of the pro-life club at Carleton University where the club was consistently discriminated against for it's pro-life position. In 2010, Ruth and 4 other club members were arrested by Carleton Administration for attempting to put up a pro-life display. In defense of the club, Ruth lead a national media campaign and was interviewed by several major national outlets over the course of several months. Subsequently, she filed a lawsuit against the school for their discrimination. Later that year, Ruth was named International Pro-Life Activist of the year by Students for Life of America, the largest pro-life youth organization in America. Ruth became the Director of NCLN in 2017, and most recently was co-host of the largest pro-life March in Canada on EWTN, a major Catholic Broadcasting network. Most recently, NCLN played a large role in bringing the movie Unplanned to Canada by mobilizing Canadians to make their interest in pro-life media and messaging known to Cineplex. She lives in Ottawa, Ontario.  



We train students to effectively talk to peers about the realities of abortion.

Abortion needs more than one conversation—we take students from the first conversation to leading their own discussions about abortion on campus.

We support 21 pro-life university clubs across the country and host a regular student pro-life conference.
