Queen’s Alive promotes a culture grounded in respect for the human person from conception to natural death. This contributes to the atmosphere of human rights, fairness and equity for which Queen’s University is well known. By creating a public forum for the provision of detailed information about the early stages of human development and organizing lectures and debates by eminent individuals, Queen’s Alive also contributes to the intellectual culture of the university. It stimulates healthy debate on the subject, enriching moral discourse and promoting the mutual and free exchange of ideas which characterizes a liberal education.
The purpose of Queen’s Alive is to actively defend and promote the dignity of human life from conception to natural death. The club exists to provide information to Queen’s students and the broader Kingston community about abortion, euthanasia, and other subjects relevant to the protection of life. It also exists to direct the public to various pro-life resources such as crisis pregnancy and post-abortion centres. The ultimate goal of Queen’s Alive is to contribute to a legal reform in Canada which would entrench fundamental human rights in the Canadian constitution, providing legal protection for the right to life of every human being without exception.
We meet weekly to educate ourselves on various pro-life topics, engage students on campus in conversation about pro-life issues through weekly tabling events, host educational and relevant screenings and debates, enjoy social time together, and encourage each other in the fight for human rights for all human beings.
