Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform founder to speak in Vancouver

VANCOUVER--Stephanie Gray, co-founder and executive director of the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform, says young people in Canada are part of a survivor generation.
"All of the young people alive today were born at a time when abortion was legal, and they could have been killed," she told Salt and Light TV earlier this year. "That puts the burden of responsibility on us young people to share with others what could have happened to us (and) what happened to our peers, friends we'll never know."
Gray will bring this call to action to Vancouver during a pro-life workshop Sept. 1 at Holy Family Parish. It will begin at 7:30 p.m, hosted by The St. Gerard Majella Pro-Life Society.
As president of Lifeline, UBC's pro-life club, from 1999-2001, Gray helped bring the Genocide Awareness Project display to the campus. Gray has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from UBC and a Certificate in Health Care Ethics from the National Catholic Bioethics Center in Philadelphia.
Gray and Jojo Ruba formed the CCBR in 2001 with the mission "to make abortion unthinkable," using visual displays, as well as training people to use effective scientific and philosophical defences.
Holy Family is at 4851 Beatrice St. in Vancouver.
