Who’s gonna fight for what’s right?
Who’s gonna help us survive?
We’re in the fight of our lives
And we’re not ready to die
Who’s gonna fight for the weak?
Who’s gonna make ‘em believe?
I’ve got a hero, I’ve got a hero
Living in me
I’m gonna fight for what’s right
Today I’m speaking my mind
And if it kills me tonight
I will be ready to die A hero’s not afraid to give his life
A hero’s gonna save me just in time

CURSOR DOWN FOR RECENT ADDITIONS TO SOCON OR BUST. THIS POST WILL REMAIN AS THE MOST CURRENT ONE UNTIL FRIDAY.
Fundraiser Background & Details
Carleton Lifeline, the pro-life student club at Carleton University, has been doing some amazing pro-life work in recent weeks. These students are tenacious.
On October 4, they got arrested on the campus for protesting abortion in an incident that garnered national media attention. Later in October, they held another protest and were harrassed by students and campus security. They also appeared on Michael Coren’s TV show to expose the anti-life bias of university campuses. More recently, Carleton Lifeline had it club status revoked by the students’ association because their pro-life views are considered as “discriminatory” and irreconcilable with the official pro-choice doctrine of the association.
Carleton Lifeline recently hired a lawyer to defend them from the free speech police. Although their lawyer has generously offered his services pro bono, Carleton Lifeline believes that he should be paid for his work. In addition, there are other expenditures that they have and will incur to keep finding innovative ways to push the pro-life envelope in a hostile University environment.
The very least we can do is to flip them a few bucks. Thanks, praise, and prayer are great, but that doesn’t pay the lawyer bills or the trespassing charge of $130/student arrested, does it?
At Carleton University, after all, it’s not free speech; it’s FEE speech. That is, at Carleton University, you can speak all you want, just be prepared to get cuffed and pay a fine to do it. It’s the new, exclusive student fee imposed on pro-life and conservatives students at Censorship U. They accept the student’s tuition money, student fees, and their parents’ taxes, but won’t let them express their views. In other words, it’s “back of the bus, negro.”
To support this endeavour, Socon or Bust will be accepting donations from our readers that will be relayed to Carleton Lifeline. Here’s another opportunity for us to show our solidarity with these brave warriors. Their heroic acts deserve our tangible gratitude. They took one for the unborn child, big time.
We all need to remember that standing in solidarity with the unborn often requires difficult actions and sacrifice. Every pro-life person should do something for the movement. Obviously, some elderly people or individuals who are extremely busy doing other ministry may not be able to do activism. But everyone is called to be pro-life in some way. We really need to see more initiatives and people taking more risks. In the meantime, realize that the students at Carleton Lifeline risked a lot. Let’s make it worth it.
Making a donation is easy. Just click on the yellow button below and you will be taken to a secure form where you can make a donation either through PayPal (if you have an account) or with a credit card. (Socon or Bust will post a full activity of our PayPal account after fundraising campaign has completed on our blog. Individual identity of donors will be kept confidential.) Alternatively, you can donate directly to their lawyer’s trust account by mailing a cheque to the address specified here. Just be sure to let us know you have donated directly to Carleton Lifeline and we will update our fundraising thermometer.
Please note that the thermometer does not update itself automatically when you make an online donation. We will update it manually several times per day as donations arrive.
Carleton Lifeline cannot issue a tax receipt for your donation. And we think that’s fitting too because it means your sacrifice has double the impact in the spiritual realm, and we don’t want the government’s money anyway.
Leave a comment in the discussion box. Leave a prayer with the Lord. And leave some money in the bottle!
Let’s get this show on the road! Socon or Bust starts things off with a $100 donation.
