Bishops speak out against Trudeau diktat

Four leading Catholic bishops have spoken out against Justin Trudeau’s announcement that individuals who hold pro-life views will be banned from running as candidates for the Liberal Party, a policy that does not apply to sitting pro-life Liberal MPs. The bishops have chastised Trudeau for excluding faithful Catholics from seeking elected office under the Liberal banner, promoting abortion while presenting himself as a Catholic, and misrepresenting the reality of abortion in Canada. On May 14, Cardinal Thomas Collins of Toronto issued ... (Continue reading)

Liberal no longer

Liberal no longer

An American poet once defined a “liberal” as a man too “altruistically moral” to “take (his) own side in a quarrel.” Justin Trudeau recently decided that Canadian Liberals, in contrast, are not free to do the same. Trudeau decreed that all future candidates in his party must be unambiguously, categorically, and unapologetically pro-abortion: they may not take the unborn’s side in our country’s current quarrel. Trudeau’s shocking declaration, made in ... (Continue reading)

An unchartered ‘right’

Perhaps the most surprising detail that emerged from Justin Trudeau’s spontaneous, undemocratic pronouncement about the commitment to abortion which future Liberal candidates must espouse is his evident ignorance about the Charter of Rights and Freedoms which his own father shepherded into Canadian law. In his zeal to build a party that, in his words, is both “the party of the Charter” and “resolutely pro-choice,” he failed to confirm if the two were actually related. In fact, they are not. Abortion is ... (Continue reading)

Abortion supporters push New Brunswick to fund Morgentaler facility

Students at the St. Thomas University School of Social Work launched an online petition urging the government of New Brunswick to fund abortions carried out at the Morgentaler abortion mill in Fredericton. Their online petition, which had quickly garnered about 2000 signatures, complains that abortions are only funded if they are done in a hospital and approved by a pair of doctors. They say it violates the 1988 Supreme Court Morgentaler decision and the Canada Health Act. The petition says more than ... (Continue reading)

Planned Parenthood’s main business is abortion: report

A report by the American Life League’s Stop Planned Parenthood International (STOPP) debunks myths about the abortion giant. Planned Parenthood Federation of America: A 5-Part Analysis of Business Practices, Community Outcomes, and Taxpayer Funding argues that “three primary rationales used for taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood – women’s wellness, reduction of teen pregnancy, and serving the poor – are all invalid.” Planned Parenthood justifies its role in public health through the provision of “safe sex” education and contraceptives to adolescents, which ...
