Pentecostals publish their official position on abortion

"Human life begins at conception. Human life is a continuum from the moment of conception to the moment of death. The only possible justification for the interruption of a pregnancy would be in the extremely rare situation in which an abortion is performed in order to save the life of the mother. Abortion performed for any other reason is the deliberate taking of human life and is equivalent to murder." This statement forms the basis of the official position ... (Continue reading)

Francis Schaeffer

Dr. Francis Schaeffer died on May 15 at his home in Rochester, Minnesota. He had been fighting caner for several years. Through decades of achievement in two major areas, Dr. Schaeffer had become recognized internationally as a leading Evangelical thinker. Francis Schaeffer was the author of twenty-three books and - with his son Frank - produced several film series in which he presented his Christian perspective systematically and lucidly. His constant concern was to present his readers with a critique ... (Continue reading)

Charity no. 0367458-13-10 is lobbying again

Even though the Department of National Revenue makes it quite clear to charitable groups that political lobbying is contrary to regulations, Planned Parenthood of Canada has once again placed an ad in national newspaper (The Globe and Mail. July 28, 1984) and ad which is an open admission that Planned Parenthood is a strong political lobby in Ottawa. The ad instructs the reader to send "$5.00 (or more)" to "Let your candidate in the upcoming election know that you are a ... (Continue reading)

There are no women’s issues

With the election campaign in full swing, I am heartily sick of the slogans, "women's issues," and "gender gap." Unfortunately, they are the kind of buzz-words which will stay with us for a long time. The two slogans are, of course, intertwined, and I'm surprised that no-one -male or female - has protested the insult implicit in the slogans. First, the term "gender gap" means that women are presumed to vote for the candidate whose position on "women's issues" ... (Continue reading)

How should I vote?

It is very difficult to imagine what one isn't! But I am going to try just for a few moments. Act I - The Atheist I am an atheist and in the coming election I want to vote for what is best for Canada. I'm not emotionally attached to any of the three parties so, in practice, I am reduced to looking at the candidates who are standing in my riding. Enter the pro lifers Some pro-life group has brought the abortion issue to ... (Continue reading)

Canadian government sends secret pro-abortion group to Mexico

The Canadian delegation to the UN-sponsored International Conference on Population, which took place in Mexico City early in August, adopted a pro-abortion position. In contrast to wide-ranging publicity and debate given to the US policy against funding abortion, the Canadian people were kept completely in the dark - not only as to what kind of policy had been adopted but also as to members of the delegation itself. The secrecy surrounding the six months of private consultation to shape government ... (Continue reading)

The curse of Time Magazine

During my time at the University of Toronto, attending media classes with Marshall McLuhan, I would on occasion hear Dr. McLuhan refer to Time magazine as "Big Brother." He would explore the subject further by saying that George Orwell's book, 1984 was obsolete the day it was published and that Orwell was writing about the world of 1932 not 1984. and in fact, the American press empire (Time-Life-Fortune group) combined with the forces of Hollywood and some of the ...

Abortion -a threat to a free society

Abraham Lincoln, a great American president, had a simple but profound formula for government in a free society. "...government of the people, by the people, for the people." All freedom-loving Canadians concur with Lincoln. It is a formula that works. But it must be won and kept with determination, sacrifice, and eternal vigilance. How do we rate as a free nation? All law-abiding Canadians accept government of the people. We want to be governed. Those who refuse to be governed invite ... (Continue reading)

Abortion on film

I doubt whether any of the people who packed the hotel room in Kansas City at the 1984 National Right to Life Conference, to see the first public showing of Dr. Nathanson's abortion film will ever forget that experience. What we saw was a real-time ultrasound picture of the complete abortion of a ten-week-old fetus, and what we heard was Dr. Nathanson's explanation of the video. For five minutes we saw the baby turning and moving in the uterus and ... (Continue reading)

REAL women and election ’84

The feminists have been putting forward a no-holds barred campaign in order to induce the politicians into believing that there is no single, more powerful group than women and no issue (not even that of unemployment) more important. The feminists are attempting to intimidate the politicians into believing that women are powerful, legitimate voting block. This is not so. Feminist policies do not now  and never will have the support of the majority of women. There is no "women's vote" Politicians should know ... (Continue reading)

CYPLO Canadian Youth Pro-Life

By: Jim McManamy Shall I vote for the man or vote for the party? This is a question which many people consider before an election and one which pro-life voters will be asking themselves before September 4. Although, pro-life voters believe that the Abortion question must be made an issue, (even though many politicians would rather avoid it, often by making it a non-issue) many are unsure about the correct strategy when it comes to casting their vote. Pro-life voters who vote ... (Continue reading)

Dr. Paul McGoey

He was an outstanding surgeon and was a leader in the just cause of defending the right to life of the unborn in Ontario. He graduated from the University of Toronto in 1940 and saw overseas duty with the Canadian Orthopedic Unit in Scotland between in 1941 ... (Continue reading)

Interim essay contest Winner!

Sandra Kloosterhuis Thunder Bay Ontario 1st Prize 9 Year-old group Life is great! An abortion is when a doctor and a mother decide to kill a baby while it is growing in the womb. Some people think that abortion should stop and I think they are "Pro-Life." Why would a mother and a doctor want to kill a poor innocent baby? The baby can't help being there. He or she would like a chance to grow up and live like we do. If the ... (Continue reading)
