Shoebox Project Canada. Stand Up For Choice.

This petition had 74 supporters

We came across the Shoebox charity donation page on Facebook and thought what a great idea to support women from the community who are in need.

We were however disheartened to see that this local chapter donates to two local Anti Choice groups in Haldimand Norfolk County.  We want the Shoebox Project Canada to let the Haldimand Norfolk Shoebox chapter know that partnering with anti choice organizations are not acceptable. That these two groups (Norfolk Pregnancy Centre and Haldimand Pregnancy Centre) do not disclose that they are Pro Life and anti choice. 

Both the NPC and HPC are known as crisis pregnancy centres (CPCs). They operate under the guise of providing social services often to low-income marginalized people in the community. Not only are these groups anti choice, but they are also anti contraceptive.  CPCs are not unbiased, non-judgemental and are Christian ministries, that are morally opposed to some of the key choices that women make.  Their names are misleading and many members of the community are unaware of the religious or political affiliations of these anti choice groups.  By partnering with these anti choice and anti LGBTQ groups you are in essence supporting and legitimizing them in the community. CPC's are not a social service agency  

Let’s tell the Shoebox Project Canada that they need to Stand Up For Choice. Tell them not to partner with anti choice groups. Tell them not to partner and legitimize groups that are ministries for faith based organizations that don't believe in marriage equality. Tell them not to partner with groups that are deceptive and neglect to tell the community that they are Pro Life and anti choice.  Tell them you won't donate or share the Shoebox Project until the Haldimand Norfolk location stop partnering with both the NPC and HPC. 

Sign and share this petition. Let The Shoebox Project Know that they need to support women's reproductive healthcare rights
