Alberta Life Issues Educational Society (ALIES) is a non-profit organization and a federally registered charity that operates in the province of Alberta. ALIES gathers, develops and distributes information on a broad range of life issues. ALIES is a member of LifeCanada, a national educational pro-life group.
ALIES operates an outreach project called The Back Porch as a means of promoting life-affirming options. The Back Porch is a means to assist, support and refer abortion-minded men and women and those experiencing grief following abortion. In this capacity we network with counseling groups and referral agencies across Alberta. The Back Porch is an 11th hour ministry for women and their partners who have doubts, concerns, misgivings/misinformation about their choice to abort. Dedicated volunteers and staff speak with the clients.
Our mission statement is to promote and educate about sanctity and dignity of all human life from conception to natural death to all Albertans to create a culture of life.
Statement of Faith: Faith - In all our programs and services, we share God's message of love for all people, which offers hope and transformation. Respect - We believe that each person is created in the image of God and must be treated with dignity and respect. Integrity - We are transparent and trustworthy, accountable to God and each other.
