The University of Manitoba, Students for a Culture of Life, will be hosting their first Lecture Series of the 2013 Fall Semester.

This presentation will be answering questions such as, Can we know with certainty when life begins or is it all just speculation? What do reputable biologists, embryologists and abortionists say? If you’ve ever been even just a little curious, or you want to know how to defend the pro-life position better, come out for this informative presentation.

Our speaker for this presentation is Dr. Mark Torchia.
