EVENT: “Strings Attached”: A Film Screening with Obianuju Ekeocha
SPECIAL GUEST: Obianuju Ekeocha, founder of Culture of Life Africa
VENUE: Room 200, Sir John A. Macdonald Building, 144 Wellington Street, Ottawa
Harold Albrecht, Member of Parliament for Kitchener—Conestoga and David Anderson, Member of Parliament for Cypress Hills–Grasslands will be hosting a screening of Obianuju Ekeocha’s new documentary film, “Strings Attached” on April 18th, 2018 from 7:00-9:00pm.
At a recent United Nations event, Obianuju spoke on the threats of ‘ideological colonialism’ singling out Canada in particular for tying foreign aid to abortion access, challenging the ideology behind the Government’s foreign policy as well as the use of Canadian tax dollars.
“We admire Obianuju’s constant commitment to the issue of protecting the preborn. Our intent is simply to give her an opportunity to make Parliamentarians aware of the fact that this Liberal government is imposing its reproductive rights ideology on African countries through Canadian foreign aid programs,” said Albrecht and Anderson.
Ms. Ekeocha, will provide opening remarks and receive questions from the audience following the film.
Campaign Life Coalition has brought Ms. Ekeocha to Canada for this series of presentations.
