Bishop Exner

We understand that Archbishop Adam Exner of Winnipeg has sustained a certain amount criticism (negative) regarding his warning to anyone involved directly or indirectly in an abortion that the church intends to act and enforce Canon Law provisions. Bishop Exner is the only Bishop in Canada who has spoken up loud and clear on the subject of abortion, and as you might guess, much of the criticism has come from complacent Catholics and weak clergy. A brief letter of support will ... (Continue reading)

Anti Life Media

A glace at McLean's Magazine (July 25) further exemplifies the extent of the Morgentaler media propaganda war. Morgentaler assumes a heroic and determined posture on the cover. His clinic is described as "surrounded with kindness and warmth" (page 32). The attempt to label Catholics as the sole activists in the great struggle is reflected by no less than SEVEN reference to the religion of various pro-lifers mentioned in the article on pages 32-35. In another article on pages ... (Continue reading)

Stop the clinic

On Aug 3 sixty pro-life demonstrators picketed Morgentaler's clinic while pro-abortion forces met for a rally in Queens Park.  The  content of the marcher's signs related as closely as possible to Morgentaler's  own past and the ugly record of abortion clinics in general.  The march continued for an hour and a half without great incident, then broke up at the advice of police, who feared a confrontation with approaching pro-abortionists. Press coverage of the march was encouraging.  C.B.C. and Global were ... (Continue reading)

From British Columbia and Saskatchewan

FREEDUMB (i.e., ignorance) is a pro-abortion weapon Pro-abortionists do not want the scientific evidence on the humanity of the unborn child to be publicized.

Pro-abortionists ... (Continue reading)
