Objective truth in the abortion debate – a pro-life training video

This is a training video from CCBR, a Canadian pro-life group I really like.

That guy in the video is the one who is always getting into trouble at university debates and lectures.

Here is his biography:

Jojo has taught pro-life apologetics for both Christian and secular audiences. He has represented the pro-life side in abortion debates held at universities, trained pro-lifers at conferences and given pro-life talks at different religious venues. Jojo has also spoken to the Parliamentary Pro-life Caucus, a group made up of pro-life Members of Parliament, in 2006.

In 2006, Jojo debated Tracy Davidson, the executive director of Planned Parenthood Ottawa, and Jeannette Doucet of Canadians for Choice in Ottawa. Abortion advocates were so frustrated with the debate that they tried to ban the pro-life club which organized it.

In 2009, abortion advocates at St. Mary’s University in Halifax shouted Jojo down for 45 minutes in an attempt to stop his presentation. Because of the publicity the protests received, more people attended Jojo’s subsequent talks in the area.

Jojo also shares the Christian case for the pro-life view at a variety of different church denominations across the country. He has spoken as the main Sunday morning speaker as well as at various church venues during the week.

One Christian friend, after hearing Jojo’s pro-life presentation, said, “I can’t believe they do this [abortion] in Canada” and now supports his work.

After graduating, Jojo worked for the National Campus Life Network, the only national pro-life student organization, where he organized two national pro-life conferences.

Jojo earned a Bachelor of Journalism and a Masters in Political Science from Carleton University in Ottawa. He is a co-founder of, and works full-time with, the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform.

Ugh! He went to that awful fascist Carleton University! No wonder they turned him into a pro-life debater!

    This is the usual tactic of the Left when they do not have a legitimate answer for your charges. shout you down, call you names, marginalize the debate as being hateful – things like that. That’s when you know you’ve won intellectually.

    • Have you seen what’s going on with those weird union people sleeping in the government buildings??? It’s juvenile. That’s why I get so mad at them. But not all unions are like that, there are some reasonable ones.

      • Gee, I missed that. Doesn’t surprise me a bit. I think MOST unions are like that. My experience with unions is that they are thugs, whose leadership have the democrat party in their pockets.

    • I think they took a page from the Tea Party response to the Healthcare townhall meetings. At least they weren’t armed!
