Now, these brave students need your help once more.So Con or Bust is running a fundraiser for Carleton Lifeline. So far, $1345 have been raised; the goal is $2500. Please consider chipping in for the brave pro-life students at Carleton University. Together we can help put an end to this outrageously absurd situation when abortion is illegal to show but legal to perform.
Two weeks ago, Carleton Lifeline (the pro-life student group at Carleton) was notified that the school Student Association would be decertifying the group in less than a week, on November 18th, unless they renounced the pro-life beliefs expressed in their group constitution. The Carleton University Student Association (CUSA) is using the school’s “Discrimination on Campus “ policy, which upholds “a woman’s right to choose” to justify discriminating against the pro-life student group. Read more from the students here: http://carletonlifeline.wordpress.com/
If Carleton Lifeline loses their official group status, it will be a significant loss and will hinder their activities on campus by denying them the student space, resources, and funding all other student clubs have access to.
For student pro-lifers, being on campus is fundamental to the mission of educating other students about abortion and helping women facing unplanned pregnancies.
Today, whether you are American or Canadian, will you take a few moments to stand with Carleton Lifeline?
ACTION 1: Add your name to our petition protesting Carleton University’s discrimination against pro-life students here: www.standwithcarleton.com
ACTION 2: Call and e-mail Dr. Roseann O’Reilly Runte, President and Vice-Chancellor of Carleton, and tell her to stop the discrimination against pro-life students. Her office phone is 613 520-3801, and her e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
ACTION 3: Next, please DONATE to the Carleton University Lifeline group. They need help to pay their attorney fees and launch new educational projects on campus. Just $5 would help this group! Please know, 100% of all funds will be donated directly to Carleton University Lifeline and all American donations are tax-deductible.

They were arrested for daring to show what so called "choice" looks like. They are being targeted by the union jackboots who believe that freedom of speech should only be available to those who support abortion. They need our help:
