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.

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 ...

The cover of a recent New York magazine promised so much – far more than I knew it would deliver, but I couldn’t resist. “There are over a million terminated pregnancies in American every year,” it read, under the headline “My Abortion,” “yet few women will ever talk about their experience.” Living in a country where actually talking about abortion is discouraged by governments, regardless of their politics, who seem ...

Correct language key in abortion discussion

Correct language key in abortion discussion

I have always been interested in words. This fall, I began my third year at Carleton University where I am studying linguistics. I recently did an article for The Interim blog Soconvivium about a story in The Atlantic, which discussed women waiting to have children and the means some might use if they grew too old to conceive naturally. The piece reminded me just how important correct language is ... (Continue reading)

Reaction to Down syndrome understandable but horrifying

A few weeks ago, my editor, Paul Tuns, told me about an article he read in Chatelaine magazine. A woman named Chloe Ashton recounted her experiences after learning her second child – this one unplanned – would have Down syndrome. Having refused genetic screening while pregnant with her then four-year-old daughter, Ashton was convinced at first that she wouldn’t have “done anything about” a problem with either pregancy. She was more confident this time around, in part because of a ... (Continue reading)
