The Bible As Hate Literature

Hugh Owens may well be the first Canadian ever fined for quoting the Bible, but unless Canadian Christians wake up from their apathetic slumbers and mount a counterattack against the persecutorial tyranny of kangaroo court human rights commissions, he won't be the last. The Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission has ordered both Owens and the Saskatoon StarPhoenix newspaper to pay $1,500 to three homosexualist activists for publishing an ad in the ...

Abortion as a solution to crime

The completed research report by researchers John J. Donohue III of Stanford Law School and Steven D. Levitt, a professor of economics at the University of Chicago, drawing a connection between abortion and crime rates is being published next month in Harvard University's Quarterly Journal of Economics.

The Sore Losers Brigade

When MP homosexual activist Svend Robinson complained about a police rubber bullet that had destroyed his black casual pants and injured his leg during a protest at the recent Summit of the Americas in Quebec City, I was heartened by the speed with which the National Post came to his aid, with their New Pants for Svend Fund. I am sorry, but I will not be contributing, feeling more ... (Continue reading)

Forgiven

When Denise Mountenay wrote her autobiography, Forgiven, in 1999, describing her life experiences and traumas that included rape at the age of 13, alcohol and drug addiction and several abortions, she did not know what effect the book would have. In fact, from the pain of reliving her own difficulties while writing the book, the lives of three preborn babies that she knows about, have ... (Continue reading)

D&P funds Quebec City ‘Peoples Summit’

On the heels of the scandal of its $135,000 donation to the pro-abortion World March of Women, the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace has again been caught donating large sums of money to an event controlled by abortion supporters. The B.C. Catholic reported April 23 that the Canadian Catholic bishops' official social justice agency set aside $140,000 of church members' donations for the leftist anti-globalization "People's Summit" held in ...

Klein reneges on ‘fences’ to protect family

Pro-family groups have criticized Alberta Premier Ralph Klein's failure to keep his promise of erecting "fences" to protect marriage and the family. Following the 1998 Vriend decision in which the Supreme Court of Canada forced the province to include sexual orientation as a protected class under its human rights legislation, Klein promised to put up "fences" around other legislation in order to protect the traditional definition of marriage. But pro-family groups ... (Continue reading)

Pro-abortion vandals hit Winnipeg CPC

When Juergen Severloh came to the Crisis Pregnancy Centre of Winnipeg on the Saturday morning of March 17, he found the words "Anti-Choice F---ers" spray painted in bright yellow letters over the window of the building, and what he estimated to be at least a gallon of blood-red paint splattered on the walls. Severloh, the centre's executive director, told The Interim ... (Continue reading)

Carstairs to advise government on palliative care

The announcement by the Liberal government that it has given prominent euthanasia proponent Senator Sharon Carstairs special responsibility for overseeing palliative care has drawn a mixed reaction from pro-life groups. In March, Prime Minister Jean Chretien named Carstairs, already the Leader of the Government in the Senate, Special Advisor to the Minister of Health for Palliative Care. A point of contention for some pro-lifers is the fact that ... (Continue reading)

U.S. high court OK’s death by starvation

LifeSite News Terri Schiavo, 37, of St. Petersburg, Florida, has received food through a feeding tube for the past eleven years, after an incident in which her heart stopped and she was deprived of oxygen for five minutes. Although unable to move, Terri can breathe on her own and her parents attest that she moans, smiles and cries and opens and closes her eyes in response to their care. However, ... (Continue reading)

Pro-lifers quietly spread the truth in Montreal

As the deep mounds of snow melt here in Montreal, there are signs that cold attitudes towards dealing with issues of life are also beginning to melt. The thawing trend got a boost at the end of March from priest, author and professor Msgr. Elio Sgreccia, the director of the Bioethics Institute at the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery at Sacred Heart Catholic University in Rome. He did a series ... (Continue reading)

Pro-lifers protest Clinton speech at Catholic hospital

About 200 pro-life demonstrators from all over southern Ontario joined a diverse collection of others - including Serb, anti-war and tainted blood protesters - outside the Hamilton banquet centre where the man known to the North American pro-life community as "the abortion president" spoke at a fund-raising dinner for a unit of St. Joseph's Catholic hospital on May 2. Extreme security measures, perhaps inspired by the recent setup at the ... (Continue reading)

‘The most impersonal moment of my life’

I will start out with the cold hard truth: I had an abortion. It was the most impersonal experience of my life, and it has given me a new hold on the realities of Canadian society, and a critical view of the values I had at the time. It wasn't very long ago; in fact, I should still be pregnant right now. And that is the thought that motivates ... (Continue reading)
