Kelowna Right to Life Society

Who We Are:

The first pro-life organization in Kelowna, The Voice of the Unborn, was founded in October of 1972 in response to Canada’s 1969 legalization of abortion. This group became the Kelowna Right to Life Society in July of the following year. In October of 1981, the Kelowna Right to Life Society was registered under the Societies Act and listed as a registered charity under the Income Tax Act. For 40 years, we have spoken on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves.


What We Do:

We have stood for the most defenceless of all human beings, the unborn child, in several ways. First, we have maintained a peaceful vigil in front of Kelowna General Hospital every Tuesday since the opening of the current ‘clinic’ in 2000. Second, we have conducted dozens of advertising campaigns over the years, including highway billboards, newspaper, radio, social media, and television ad campaigns; all proclaiming the dignity and value of human life from conception to natural death. Finally, Kelowna Right to Life Society has organized and participated in countless public demonstrations from the periodic displaying of graphic images on public roads to the annual Life Chain every October.

The Power of Language

There weren’t many things on which I agreed with U.S. President Barack Obama, but his statement that “words matter” in a 2008 plagiarized speech is one. Language is a powerful tool for shaping public opinion, and abortion advocates have done a far better job over the...
