ABOUT US

Personhood.ca is a project of Alliance for Life Ontario (www.allianceforlife.org). We believe the time has come for our government to extend full legal protection to every human being from their biological beginnings to natural death.

Our organization is part of the Personhood Movement which seeks to restore legal protection for children
in the womb through educational and peaceful means.

Alliance for Life Ontario was established in 1989 to represent and serve as an educational coordinating organization for educational pro-life groups throughout the province. Our goal is to by promote a greater respect for all human life from conception/fertilization to natural death through education. With an eleven member Board of Directors, two staff members and several volunteers, Alliance for Life Ontario currently serves 60 pro-life educational groups. Alliance for Life Ontario is a not-for-profit organization and receives no government funding. We rely on the generosity of pro-life Canadians and people of goodwill who support our efforts. Although our work is non-partisan and educational in nature, we have not been able to achieve a charitable status, despite two attempts. Reflecting upon this situation, we note that several abortion clinics in Canada have acquired charitable status. We are not surprised that in today's climate it is considered "charitable" to perform abortions. Apparently, the provision of educational information regarding fetal development, abortion procedures, risks, and alternatives, is not worthy of charitable status. We represent a united voice working to bring about greater respect for the dignity and worth of all human beings from conception/fertilization to natural death. We advocate for pre-born children, youth, the disabled, infirm, elderly, dying and individuals hurt by abortion. We accomplish our work through the following objectives:

  • Developing and distributing educational resources on the life issues
  • Facilitating an annual provincial conference and sponsoring regional or local symposia
  • Acting as a provincial voice in the public square for our member groups
  • Following policy and legislation affecting the rights and protection of the most vulnerable
  • Preparing briefs and presentations for the Senate and government committees at all levels
  • Co-ordinating a professional province-wide television media campaign
  • Undertaking or sponsoring the development of effective educational projects
  • Developing & maintaining multiple websites
  • Expediting the formation of local educational pro-life groups across the province
Establishing the personhood of the unborn does not mean we are ignoring the personhood of the mother.
