The truth doesn’t kill; abortion does

  "Religious leaders didn't pull the trigger on Dr. Slepian or bash in the skull of Matthew Shepard, but their blood is dripping off the hands of religious leaders who have, with vitriolic language, incited zealous followers to murder abortion doctors and gays and lesbians. "We must hold accountable the Pope, the bishops, local clergy, conservative Protestant leaders such as Dr. ... (Continue reading)

Senator targets ‘theo-conservatives’

Tory Senator Ron Ghitter, Q.C., believes that religious conservatives "pose the greatest threat to the maintenance and advancement of human rights in our nation." In Ghitter's estimation, "theo-conservatives" are more dangerous to Canadian society than "skinheads, the Aryan Nation and white supremacists." Senator Ghitter's recent address entitled, "Theo-conservatism: A Threat to Human Rights," delivered at ... (Continue reading)

Poor Garth

Garth Drabinsky was on the phone! Why on earth was he calling me?, I wondered. I said to him, "I don't think we've met, Mr. Drabinsky, but I was down to your office a few months ago to try to get a donation for Campaign Life. Your secretary had a big picture of Henry Morgentaler over her desk, and she told ... (Continue reading)

TRUE BLUE?

With an election looming, grassroots Ontarians are asking whether the Mike Harris Tories are more "progressive" than conservative. They've certainly been a huge disappointment for one of their most natural constituencies: pro-life, pro-family voters. With an Ontario election seeming imminent this spring, Ontario voters for whom life and family are the first priority are feeling deeply betrayed by the Tories.... (Continue reading)

Editorial – Having the courage of our convictions

The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity - W. B. Yeats, "The Second Coming" Unfortunately, these oft-quoted lines ring true now even more than when they were written in 1920. They point to one of the most peculiar tragedies of modern culture: while Error asserts itself aggressively with unblinking self-confidence, Truth can barely clear its throat - and then only to apologize for itself....

Remembering our ‘Day of Infamy’

Last month, part one of this article traced the history of legalized abortion from 1969 to 1988. The 1988 Regina vs. Morgentaler decision, which left Canada lawless with regard to abortion, has come back to haunt our current Supreme Court Chief Justice, Antonio Lamer. Justice Lamer shocked Canadians last winter with his admission that he voted to strike down Section 287 of the Criminal Code 10 years ... (Continue reading)

Holy woman’ mourned

The Toronto-area pro-life community is mourning the death of one of its most stalwart supporters. Michelle Mary Fleming passed away in her home on New Year's Eve after a lengthy illness. Even in sickness, however, she had kept the pro-life movement in her thoughts and prayers. "She went through a great deal of suffering, which she bore very bravely," said her ... (Continue reading)

New ways of donating strengthen pro-life cause

Cake, tape and book sales, draws, promotions and special events aren't the only ways Canada's pro-life movement is raising funds to combat the considerable and money-laden forces of the anti-life side. A recent trend has seen increasing numbers of people diverting to the pro-life cause monies destined for flowers at funerals, in memoriams or birthday gifts.... (Continue reading)

Bishops nix pro-life political affirmation

A "Pro-Life Pledge" initiative, launched by the Pro-Life Pledge Alliance in Santa Ana, Calif., appears to be meeting stiff resistance in circles where you would expect it to obtain at least grudging support. Brian Murphy, a father of five grown children who lives in Mission Viejo, Calif., and one of the strongest promoters of the pro-life pledge, has failed to find a doorway to promote the initiative....

MP seeks to rein in UN agreements

Whether due to naivete or a bold streak, Reform MP Eric Lowther has decided to take on Ottawa's pro-United Nations bureaucracy all but single-handedly. Being told to get lost by a bureaucrat in the Department of Canadian Heritage was added motivation to push ahead. Mr. Lowther is the Reform Party's children and families critic and also a member of the Parliamentary Heritage Committee. The human rights program ... (Continue reading)

MPP aims to build palliative care

Loree Moores loved spending summers at her cottage. But in 1996, she was diagnosed with cancer. As her health deteriorated, she moved in with her son. At the start of her last summer, she and her family assumed that the 33-year tradition of summers at the cottage would have to be broken. But Loree Moores had a palliative care team. These health care professionals consulted with Loree ... (Continue reading)
