Andrea Mrozek

Program Director, Cardus Family

Andrea Mrozek is a writer, researcher, editor and media spokeswoman, who is interested in winsome public square dialogue and public policy research on themes that result in flourishing families. Currently, she is Program Director of Cardus Family, an Ottawa, Canada-based think tank dedicated to the renewal of civil society in North America.

Prior to joining Cardus, she was the Executive Director at the Institute of Marriage and Family Canada where she wrote and spoke about marriage, child care, women’s issues and how families affect the economy, and vice versa. Her opinion pieces have appeared in newspapers across Canada and she’s frequently a guest on TV and radio shows.

She is the founder of ProWomanProLife.org, Canada’s only pro-life website exclusively written by women. Her ultimate, long term goal is to create a Canada where demand for abortions decreases until there’s none left, not because it was forced upon anyone but because that is what women choose.

Born in Toronto, Andrea has a Master of Arts in History from the University of Toronto. She lives with her husband in Ottawa, Canada.

  • Canada’s Supreme Court Strikes Down Existing Criminal Prohibition on Assisted Suicide | February 6, 2015

    In a decision today with serious international ramifications, Canada’s highest court has overturned an absolute ban on assisted suicide/euthanasia and has given Parliament one year to create a “stringently limited, carefully monitored system of exceptions.”

    The decision was unanimous, 9-0, and it should be viewed as a victory for advocates of assisted suicide and euthanasia. The ruling chisels away at a prior understanding in Canadian law of human life—even difficult or painful life—as sacred.

    In the policy interplay between the United States and Canada, Americans can expect that “right-to-die” activists will be very motivated to use this Canadian case as an example, just as Canadian activists pointed to the “success” of “aid-in-dying” laws in Washington and Oregon.
