Abortion becomes issue in New Brunswick election

Abortion becomes issue in New Brunswick election

Despite besting the provincial Progressive Conservatives by nine percentage points (43 per cent compared to 34) in the Sept. 22 New Brunswick election, the Liberals eked out a bare majority, leading in 27 ridings in the 49-seat provincial legislature. The Tories took 21 and the Green Party won a Fredericton riding. The focus of the election was, of course, the economy and the environment and how to best create jobs. ... (Continue reading)

Morgentaler abortuary closes in Frederiction

The only free-standing abortion mill in Atlantic Canada stopped doing abortion on July 18 after operators of the Fredericton Morgentaler Clinic failed to convince the New Brunswick government to provide full funding for abortions committed at the facility. The abortion mill was not officially scheduled to be closed until the end of July, prompting local pro-lifers to call the closing a “publicity stunt.” Elizabeth Crouchman, president of New Brunswick Right to Life, told LifeSiteNews, “I don’t see any victory for the ...

Abortion industry promotes sexual promiscuity

A recent documentary, Blood Money: The Business of Abortion, exposes the link between the multi-billion dollar abortion industry and the push for radical sexual education and easy contraception. The documentary, which features former abortionist Carol Everett, who spoke at the 2014 Rose Dinner in Ottawa, admits that Planned Parenthood actively targets youth by promoting sexual activity and attacking chastity through contraceptive strategies for teenagers in North America. While the documentary and Everett focus on the United States, statistics from Canada reveal ... (Continue reading)

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)

The political news website iPolitics.ca reported April 16 that sources at Health Canada say the federal agency will not make a decision about whether or not it will permit importation of the abortion drug RU-486, effectively legalizing it in Canada.

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)

They have worked for organizations ... (Continue reading)
