Perogy fundraiser

The Parkland Right to Life’s annual Perogy and Sausage Fundraiser Dinner at St. Gerard’s Parish in Yorkton raised funds that will be distributed to various pro-life initiatives in Saskatchewan and across Canada. Guest speaker Cathay Wagantall, MP Yorkton-Melville, reminded those in attendance that Canada does not have an abortion law to protect pre-born humans at any stage of development. Literature was also provided to help inform people about a province-wide letter writing campaign for conscience protection rights for doctors and other healthcare workers in Saskatchewan. Participants were encouraged to sign letters addressed to Hon. Jim Reiter, Saskatchewan Minister of Health, and Hon. Greg Ottenbreit, Saskatchewan Minister Responsible for Rural and Remote Health. In 2017 Bill 34 to protect Conscience Rights was passed in Manitoba after the launch of a similar letter writing campaign.
