This year marks 50 years of legal abortion in Canada. To commemorate this tragic anniversary, LifeCanada and several partner groups are planning an ambitious creative project that will explore the effects of abortion on Canadians across the country. We want to answer the question, “Why do Canadians care about abortion 50 years after it was legalized?”
LifeCanada is a proud sponsor and producer of The Missing Project.
With the 50th anniversary of legalized abortion in Canada in 2019, LifeCanada and a few other groups planned an ambitious creative project that explored the effects of abortion on Canadians across the country. WE WANTED TO ANSWER THE QUESTION, “WHY DO CANADIANS CARE ABOUT ABORTION 50 YEARS AFTER IT WAS LEGALIZED?”
To that end, LifeCanada designed and commissioned a national poll with Public Square Research that showed that the debate is not yet over, nor are the vast majority of Canadians on board with the radical position of abortion on demand for any reason.
We also teamed up with organizations across Canada to film 50 short testimonies (1 for every year of legal abortion) plus one feature-length documentary film, titled “THE MISSING PROJECT”. We aimed to capture stories from all walks of life in Canada; Young, old, Atheist, Christian, Francophone, English, Aboriginal, etc.).
1) 50 short testimonies featuring firsthand stories of how abortion has affected the lives of Canadians from all walks of life: young, old, Atheist, Christian, Francophone, English, Native, etc.). The stories include post-abortive women, women who chose life, adoptive parents, birth parents, fathers, grandparents, siblings, medical professionals, and more. These short testimonies will be a free resource for organizations across Canada, suitable for training events, campaigns, conversations, social media and classrooms.
2) A 90 minute documentary film, titled “THE MISSING PROJECT” will tell the story of 50 years of missing children, mothers and fathers, missing health information, missing parental consent, missing conversations due to censorship, missing regulations, and missing support for those harmed and lost by abortion.
The Executive Producers of this project are are a team of like-minded individuals with strong creative vision which our film producer, Thunder and Light Studios has translated into an emotional and powerful final product.
We hope you enjoy The Missing Project.
We began releasing the first of these testimonies on May 14th, 2019, Mother’s Day, and finished the release of the 50 videos on July 1, 2019, Canada Day.
We will be releasing the documentary this fall. To find out where you can see The Missing Project Documentary, go here:
