10 Jul 2008 It’s time to talk about abortion

Alone among developed countries, Canada has no abortion law. Is 'settling' for a non-decision any way for a democracy to behave?Andrew Coyne - Macleans.ca This is not about abortion. This is about democracy. It is about how we decide things, and by what rules, and how we treat each other when we disagree. Indeed, it is about whether we are allowed to disagree; whether dissent on a contentious issue is respected, or even recognized; and whether, in the face of clear evidence...

08 Jul 2008 Morgentaler

By David Warren, Sunday Spectator, July 6, 2008Let me tell my reader about an “epiphany” I once had -- a long time ago, yet seemingly yesterday. Some things, especially memories of love, remain vivid for the duration of one’s life. This was something that happened when I was seventeen, travelling through India by third class rail. I had left Howrah Station in Calcutta the day before, bound for Raxaul on the frontier with Nepal. I rode twenty-five hours continuously on an unbelievably hot and crowded train (often thinking I...

30 Jun 2008 A MUST READ: An Open Letter to Fellow Pro-Life Labourers Regarding the Order of Canada

By Stephanie Gray, Executive Director, Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform, June 30, 2008As my inbox floods with news about Henry Morgentaler's supposed receipt of the Order of Canada, my thought is this, "So what?" To give Henry Morgentaler the Order of Canada is simply to be consistent with what's going on in this country.Sure, people can point to an online poll by the Globe and Mail which revealed 92% of the over 300,000 respondents are against giving the award to Morgentaler. But the reality is this: a majority of Canadians support abortion when the procedure most often occurs (the first trimester). The reality is this: over 250 human beings will be killed today. The reality is this: that killing is state-sanctioned. The reality is this: that killing is paid for by our tax dollars. If this is the first time Canadians are feeling shame about celebrating Canada Day, then we have problems. People should have been reluctant to "celebrate" Canada day back in 1969 when abortion first became legal.

17 Jun 2008 A New Respect for the Unborn in Canada

By Tim Waggoner OTTAWA, June 17, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - As the Quebec government prepares to present a bill to the National Assembly that seeks to end the practice of hospitals treating fetuses under 500 grams as biomedical waste, Ontario is, according to an as-yet unconfirmed report, gearing up for a newly instituted "Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day", which will take place annually on October 15. The October 15 Awareness Day is already recognized nationally in the United States, but will be a new innovation for Canada if the tip received by LifeSiteNews.com is well-founded.

11 Apr 2008 Canada debates foetal homicide

Margaret Somerville | Tuesday, 8 April 2008 [from www.mercatornet.com] Sound evidence and sound language are absent in pro-choice arguments. Canada is debating Bill C-484, The Unborn Victims of Crime Act, which would make it a separate crime to injure or kill an unborn child in the course of committing a crime against a woman the accused knew to be pregnant. Abortion rights activists, who are fighting to defeat the bill, have announced that in early May a protest opposing it will take place in Ottawa. They "are (also) encouraging (pro-choice) supporters across Canada to hold similar protests as a sign of nationwide solidarity against Bill C-484." They claim the bill is "all about abortion." In view of the controversy Bill C-484 is raising, it's very important that we - in particular our politicians, who will vote on the bill - have our facts straight. It's one matter to correctly understand the bill and vote against it. It is quite another to do so on the basis of facts and arguments that are not correct.
