Morgentaler’s Maritime troubles continue

Canada’s Maritime provinces, famous for the warmth of their residents, have failed to roll out the welcome mat for Henry Morgentaler. Following the Nova Scotia court decision, in which Judge Kennedy ruled on jurisdiction plus the constitutionality of provincial law, and failed to convict Morgentaler who had openly boasted that he had performed several abortions, Nova Scotians have mobilized to keep him out of their province. Encouraged by Judge Kennedy’s questioning the correctness of his own ruling, the Nova ... (Continue reading)

Putting intellectual fraud into law

Justice Minister Kim Campbell is fortunate intellectual fraud isn’t a crime.  If it were, she’d likely be joining former Tory colleagues who were convicted for swindles of the indictable persuasion.  That seems the only verdict reasonable people could reach after reading a circular Campbell sent out recently counseling doctors on avoiding the hoosegow under her pending abortion law. If there’s one thing even rancorous opponents in the abortion debate should be able to agree on at last, it’s ... (Continue reading)

The day they made me look

For most of the past 15 years, registered nurse Lorraine Keess has worked in the general and pediatric wards of Calgary hospitals.  She is the mother of a boy, nine, and a girl, three, and the wife of a city businessman.  A year ago last month, she took a job in the pathology laboratory of a hospital which performs abortions.  Until then, she says, “My views on abortion were noncommittal.  I was a fence-sitter.”  Last June she ...

Losing Uncle Tim

Those of us who fondly remember John and Mary, Dick and Jane – not forgetting dear old Spot – should take note of a new book written for six-year-olds by Mary Kate Jordan. The story deals with a little boy called Daniel.  Daniel is very fond of his Uncle Tim.  In fact, he remembers his uncle as “more fun than any other grown up I knew.” Daniel and Uncle Tim used to play checkers and take long walks ...

Sheila Copps to address Catholic Teachers

The decision of the hierarchy of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association to invite pro-abortion MP Sheila Copps to be the keynote speaker at the “Poverty Hurts” conference, scheduled for January 25, 26 1991, at the Regal Constellation Hotel, has sparked a controversy within the rank and file. The inclusion of former MPP Richard Johnston as the facilitator of the wrap-up session has proved to be equally divisive. Johnston has consistently upheld the pro-abortion position of the NDP and ...

Recognizing the need to ... (Continue reading)

Still on the Hill

Father Tony VanHee, S.J. resumed his Fast for Life last September.  He continues to quietly stand outside the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, reminding the MPs who pass him, on their way to the House of Commons, of their failure to legislate in favor of the preborn. His fast, so far, has been uneventful compared to the furor which erupted when he was arrested during his 1989 fast. (Continue reading)

Several questions come to ... (Continue reading)

Sex Education – Florida Style

“Just say no – at least until you’re married” is the message in the Sex Education programme introduced in Florida schools this year. “Reducing teen pregnancy is what it’s all about,” said State Rep. Lois Frankel, West Palm Beach, Florida.  “Abstinence, of course, is not the only option, but we want to show it’s the best option.” Manatee County pioneered the programme in 1982.  Since then it has been touted as an example for other district to copy.  It ...
