Reaching Minds Through Media Campaign

"Alliance for Life Ontario", a coalition of 60 Educational Pro-Life Groups, hopes to raise $500,000.00 to launch its "Pro-Life Television Ad Campaign" using the best advertising techniques and production values.

 

The "Reaching Minds Through Media Campaign" is a project run by Alliance for Life Ontario, the provincial organization for educational pro-life groups in Ontario. The goal of the campaign is to:

  • Reach millions of people across Ontario with life affirming messages 
  • Help pregnant women and teens get connected to crisis pregnancy centres 
  • Reduce abortion rates 
  • Cause people to think about/rethink their position on abortion 
  • Help post-abortive women heal from the pain of their abortion
  • Despite years of abortion on demand in Canada, polls continue to show that the most basic facts about abortion are not known by the majority of Canadians. 

 

Did you know:

  • Canada has no abortion law, thereby sanctioning abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy 
  • - Abortion was "legalized" over 30 years ago, before technology introduced us to the baby in the womb
  • - Over 100,000 unborn babies are killed each year in Canada... 35,183 occurring in Ontario 
  • - Ontario taxpayers pay over 30 million dollars every year to fund abortion on demand 
  • - 49% of Ontarians are extremely conflicted on abortion 
  • - There are thousands of people waiting to adopt a child 
  • - Many women feel coerced into having an abortion and many women suffer deep regret and depression for years afterwards

 

Most people don't know why or how abortion is performed, or the detrimental effects it has on women's health. The "Reaching Minds Through Media Campaign" offers a chance to change the culture through bringing a "gentle, pro-life voice into people's living rooms" while they are watching their favourite television programs.

 

Each TV commercial carries a toll-free, pregnancy HELP-LINE 1-800-655-0570 phone number to encourage women/girls facing a crisis pregnancy to make the call that will bring them comfort and support.

 

The average cost of each commercial is $300. Imagine, only three hundred dollars to connect a mother with life-affirming support and save a child's life! However, we need to raise at least $500,000 for this campaign to be successful. We can't do this without you! This truly is a chance to create a climate in which every child is considered a gift to the world and every mother receives the support she needs.

 

We invite you to help change the hearts and minds of people in conflict over abortion by supporting our pro-life television ad campaign. Please help support the largest media campaign ever launched against abortion in Ontario. Please make your donation payable to Stratford and District Right to Life, Box 21133, Stratford, On, N5A 7V4 (earmarked 'Media Campaign"). We will send you a tax receipt for the amount you donate to this very important project. All donations that we receive will be forwarded by us to "Reaching Minds through Media Campaign" in Guelph, Ontario.
