THE EDITORIAL

Dr. Jerome LeJeune is dead. These five simple words have shocked and saddened pro-lifers around the world; five words that mark the end of a life that contributed so much to the betterment of mankind. It Is impossible, in just a few sentences, to do justice to Jerome LeJeune, for he is truly one of the great men of our time. A physician and research scientist, he is best known for his work in genetics. Early in his ... (Continue reading)

Too many questions, very few answers

Lawyers defending the 18 pro-lifers against the persecution of the Ontario Attorney General have mounted a spirited defence of the rights or their clients – and all Ontarians – to the very basics of free speech and assembly.  Now it’s up to the judge to decide whether to grant the government its extraordinary request for an injunction banning pro-life activity at 23 locations across the province. After the months of cross-examination, mountains of evidence, and three weeks of testimony, many ... (Continue reading)

Rose and Thorn

Rose – New Year’s resolutions. To the countless numbers of “ordinary” Canadians whose New Year’s resolution will be to speak up for the voiceless in 1994. Let’s hope they keep this promise and that everyone has a very happy and blessed New Year. Thorn – Royal Commission on New Reproductive Technologies. For being a $28 million waste of taxpayers’ money. Among its many questionable suggestions, the report recommended that human beings be created for the sole purpose of experimentation. The ...

A little doubt creeps in

At long last, there is hope. Not only the hope which each new year brings but real hope, hope we can put our hands on. We find this hope, of all places, in the usually unfriendly editorial pages of the Globe and Mail. The seemingly rock solid empire that is “choice”, backed by 25 years of incredible media and legal success, has finally started to unravel. Freedom to choose has long been the foundation on which radical pro-abortion feminists have built ... (Continue reading)

Can these bones live?

We seem no sooner over Halloween than Christmas is upon us.  Advent is the season before the Nativity in the Church calendar, but in the consumer culture of North America, it is Halloween and then suddenly, overnight, Christmas.  Stores remove ghosts and death masks from their window displays and replace them with angels and nativity scenes.  Skeletons become newborn babes. In the bleak mid-winter we are told to forget the ghouls of the death season and rejoice in the festival ... (Continue reading)

Don’t be fooled by the same old song and dance

Would you vote for a person who believes that the answer to Canada’s economic problems is to kill people?  Of course not, you say, such a position is totally unacceptable.  And yet, you will be doing precisely this, unless you look at where your candidates stand on abortion and euthanasia, and then vote pro-life on October 25. Well, the life issues are important, you protest, but 11 per cent unemployment and a huge deficit affect me more.  Economic issues affect us ... (Continue reading)

Are we our own worst enemies?

Do you find politics boring or sleazy?  Are you always complaining about this politician or that? In the upcoming federal election campaign, if you, who claim to be pro-life, vote for a candidate who is pro-abortion, you may as well be standing in the abortuary – passing the laminaria, the scalpel, the suction machine, the vacurettes, to your local abortionist. The voter gives power to the politician.  The politician empowers the abortionist to kill unborn babies when he or she ... (Continue reading)

A breath of fresh air

What an unexpected but welcome development!  Near the very end of a dreadful five-year term, Parliament has finally passed a moral issue law with real substance. The new child pornography law, Bill C-128, was not only quickly approved but also strengthened by significant last-minute amendments.  Parliament has demonstrated that it is serious about eliminating child pornography in Canada. The so-called kiddie porn law makes it illegal to import, distribute, sell, produce or possess pornographic films, videos, magazines or computer-generated images involving people ...

Outrageous!

One hallmark of a repressive regime is the many ways it chooses to stifle  dissent. The  Berlin Wall has fallen; the Soviet Union has dissolved. But, in 1993, in Ontario, repression flourishes under the New Democratric Party. If Attorney- General Marion Boyd wins her case in court, fundamental freedoms of speech and assembly in Ontario will be withdrawn. At named locations across the province, no one will be allowed to stand in front of an abortuary or hospital to offer a ... (Continue reading)

Semper Fidelis in …

When The Interim staff began preparing this tenth anniversary issue, we looked carefully through back issues, searching for the stories that would define the paper’s role over the past decade. We failed. Our search reminded us that The Interim is not about stories, it is about pro-life people. We are merely the instrument to let the pro-life family across Canada know who is doing what, and when, and why. Where else do you read about the pickets, the vigils, the political ...

THE MONTH IN REVIEW

Nobody Dare Protest The self-proclaimed “party of the people” is at it again.  You have to hand it to the hard-working representatives at Ontario’s Queen’s Park.  Francis Lankin, not content with fouling up the Ministry of Health, has decided to move on to the portfolio of Public Order, Censorship and Thought Control.  Lankin has vowed to act quickly on Dec. 18 report recommending a province-wide gag on pro-life freedom of speech and calling for even more abortions, especially for poor, minority ...

Hands off this law

  We oppose euthanasia, and we oppose all those people who try to manipulate public opinion by blurring the edges of the issue. Call it mercy killing, dying with dignity, aid in dying, active or passive euthanasia, all these terms mean the same thing: a sick person (not necessarily a dying person) is killed.   The Right to Die Society and its lawyers would have us believe that Sue Rodriguez is merely asking for the right to control her ...

A new year for life

Making predictions for the New Year is a dicey business but, even with 1993 barely begun, there are encouraging signs that it will be a good year for preborn babies and their distressed mothers. The pro-life movement is totally opposed to all abortions but a recently-released Environics poll is a step in the right direction – a first baby step. The poll, commissioned by the Citizens’ Voice Association of Richmond Hill, shows convincingly that a large majority of Canadians ... (Continue reading)

Clinton Victorious

On November 3, 1992 Bill Clinton, Governor of Arkansas was elected president of the United States. With the help of fly-by-night contender Ross Perot of Dallas, Texas, he took 363 votes of the Electoral College, well over the 270 he needed to win. President George Bush trailed with 118. Editor’s Announcement Father Alphonse de Valk – Editor Beginning with the January 1993 issue, The Interim will be under the new management of Campaign Life Coalition, Toronto. Henceforth policy will be set by ... (Continue reading)
