The National Pro-life Conference: Save the Planet’s People First

The National Pro-life Conference: Save the Planet's People First

For me, the range of topics covered was very good. I found the pro-life movement has really matured in its scope and how it handles things. The peace and calmness in the face of the horror of the culture of death was what I needed to hear and experience. In the midst of all that is ... (Continue reading)

Violence flourishes in the pro-abortion movement

Babies aren't the only targets of the abortion industry and its supporters. The record shows that pro-aborts in Canada and the U.S. often direct their extremism at pro-life activists, tooBy Tony Gosgnach The Interim Although violence perpetrated against abortion providers and associated personnel has garnered mounds of media coverage in the last few years - reaching a peak with the 1998 murder of Buffalo, N.Y. abortionist Barnett Slepian - ...

Chivalry isn’t dead, it’s just been badly beaten

By Andrea Procher The Interim Chivalry is dead!" Such is the oft-heard cry of the 1990s non-feminist female. Believe it or not, guys, there are more than a few women who are still honoured when you open a door or pull out a chair for them.

Thoughts at the dawn of the third millennium

Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Charlemagne and myself, we have all tried to form empires and our empires have crumbled in the dust, because they were founded on force. One Man alone founded an empire on love and today eighteen hundred years after his death, there are millions of men who are ready to lay down their lives for His Name. Can He be less than God? These ... (Continue reading)

Aid to Women goes big-time

Talk about running a bulldozer over an egg carton - that's what the mainline media has been trying to do to Aid To Women. They've blown so much money on ink kicking around the Aid to Women Hallowe'en box project that I'm thinking of taking up a collection in the office to help them out. (I'll start it off with a bent loonie I haven't been able to pawn off on anybody.) The ... (Continue reading)

Since I believe that unity ... (Continue reading)

Spanking wars go to court

Taxpayers footing the $45,000 bill through Court Challenges Program Commentary by Charles W. Moore The InterimA small, but strident and extremely self-righteous minority of leftist social engineers in this country are bound and determined to criminalize parental corporal punishment - also known as spanking.

Educational arm essential to pro-life movement

In the last issue of The Interim, Alex Schadenberg made several comments regarding the efforts to re-establish a national educational pro-life organization. The various options for the new organization are currently being developed by a steering committee mandated by the former affiliates of Alliance for Life Canada.
