Trinity Western University student group Students for Life will be hosting a showing of the pro-life documentary The 40 Film April 7.

The group will be collecting donations for the screening to be given to Hope for Women Pregnancy Services in order to help the organization fund its new upcoming Langley location.

“That’s great!” said Jared White, executive director of Advokate, the registered charity running Hope for Women. He said Students for Life have organized helpful initiatives for the charity before.

“[Students for Life] has helped out our pregnancy centre previously by making and sending in encouraging cards for moms in difficult situations.”

Advokate is affiliated with the Signal Hill Life Education Society and Life Canada, and is a religious anti-abortion charity that runs on donations. Besides running Hope for Women, it maintains a resource centre and lending library for pro-life information, hosts events, publishes a newsletter, the Voice for Life, and produces pro-life videos on YouTube.

Hope for Women Pregnancy Services has an Abbotsford clinic offering religious and non-medical advice to expectant mothers.

The centre is in the construction phase for a new branch in Langley, at 206th Street and Fraser Highway. Construction is expected to be completed by June. All fundraising efforts by the charity will be going to the new location.

The 40 Film examining the effects of abortion in America through the 40 years since the United State Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision in 1973 making abortions legal across the country.

In Canada, abortion was legalized without exception by the Supreme Court in 1988, and remains one of the only nations today to not have any restrictions on abortion access.

Students for Life will be screening the documentary on Thursday, April 7, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Northwest Auditorium,1600 Glover Rd.
