Getting pro-life legislation: daunting but doable

Getting pro-life legislation: daunting but doable

There are no shortcuts to eliminating abortion Jim Hughes More than 30 years ago, when I was still “wet behind the ears” in terms of my knowledge of the pro-life movement, I joined the fledgling pro-life organization Campaign Life (Canada). During the ensuing years I earned an education that was founded on a bedrock principle that all human life is sacred. This new organization, with its mandate to work in ... (Continue reading)

Pro-lifers launch cheeky New Abortion Caravan

Pro-lifers launch cheeky New Abortion Caravan

A group of young pro-lifers are using a defining campaign of the old pro-abortion movement to spread the message that abortion kills unborn babies across Canada. In 1970, a group of pro-abortion feminists from the Vancouver Women’s Caucus met in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery to begin a journey across Canada in a caravan. Using images of coffins and coat hangers, participants aimed to eliminate Canada’s abortion laws and win the “right” ... (Continue reading)

The witness of history

The witness of history

“The Last Judgment,” according to Kafka, “is a court that is always in session.” At first glace, these words may seem menacing and obscure, but, in fact, Kafka confirms an attitude towards history, which we all share. We believe in “last judgements,” in final, irreversible indictments, which no revisionist can recuperate and no apologist can rescind. Our estimation of the evils of slavery and genocide are examples of such “last judgments” ... (Continue reading)

Med journal raises flag on sex-selective abortions

Med journal raises flag on sex-selective abortions

An editorial in the Jan. 16 Canadian Medical Association Journal written by Dr. Rajendra Kale, the interim editor-in-chief, advocates for measures to curb sex-selective abortion of girls. “Female feticide happens in India and China by the millions, but it also happens in North America in numbers large enough to distort the male to female ratio in some ethnic groups,” he wrote in what would become a controversial medical journal editorial. “Small numbers ...

Beware the Fetal Alert Network

A benign-sounding Ontario initiative could result in more abortions Few people living in Ontario have ever heard of the Fetal Alert Network (FAN). According to its webpage, FAN’s goal is “to provide coordinated access to the best care for all women whose babies have suspected or confirmed birth defects, regardless of where they live,” as “time can be a crucial factor in her ability to make decisions for her pregnancy and ensure she has the appropriate level ...

How much does abortion cost taxpayers?

How much does abortion cost taxpayers?

Abortion costs Canadians taxpayers at least $80 million a year. Government is less than open about the costs of abortion (and other abortion numbers). If abortion is real health care, why is everything about it a secret? When Alissa Golob, head of Campaign Life Coalition Youth, started to prepare for the Oct. 22 Defund ... (Continue reading)

U.K. releases eugenic numbers

The United Kingdom’s Department of Health (DoH) released detailed statistics about eugenic abortions several years after a pro-life group demanded the information. The UK-based ProLife Alliance filed a Freedom of Information request in February 2005 for more information about abortions due to fetal health. “Previously, this information had been readily available and the DoH was increasingly providing even greater detail in its annual abortion statistics, until one case for cleft palate abortion post 24 weeks became the focus of media ...

Free the Children promotes abortion agenda

Free the Children has denied that documents on its web site criticizing the Harper government’s maternal and child health plan for its lack of abortion funding reflect the organization’s policy. The organization posted two fact sheets about maternal and child health ahead of the G8 and G20 summits for youth, as part of its Keep the Promise campaign, encouraging youth to keep politicians accountable to their pledges. On July 5, LifeSiteNews.com reported that Free the Children took down the fact sheets ... (Continue reading)

Abortion causes harm beyond the killing of the unborn

Abortion causes harm beyond the killing of the unborn

While pro-lifers are rightly concerned primarily about abortion because it takes the life of an innocent human being in its earliest and most vulnerable stages, it has also long been clear that abortion harms women and society, too. The victims of abortion, those that pay a price for the easy destruction of the unborn through abortion-on-demand, go far beyond the womb. Multiple studies have shown that abortion has a fundamental impact ... (Continue reading)

Abortion-genocide links elicits backlash

But pro-lifers say the comparison is accurate The University of Calgary pro-life group is facing a backlash over a display comparing abortion to genocide. Campus Pro-Life erected a new display in late March behind a glass case at the university’s Student Centre. It consists of 290 pairs of baby shoes, symbolizing the 290 Canadian children that die from abortion every day. A small picture of the shoes of Holocaust victims in concentration camps and accompanying text links abortion to ... (Continue reading)

Abortion as black genocide

Abortion as black genocide

A pro-life billboard in Manhattan was taken down on Feb. 24 owing to its controversial but truthful content. The huge ad showed a black girl with the words “The most dangerous place for an African American is in the womb.” The poster was part of an advertising campaign by the pro-life organization, Life Always, directing viewers to the website ThatsAbortion.com. It was displayed in the SoHo neighbourhood, half a mile away ... (Continue reading)

Profiles in self-deception

Profiles in self-deception

Abortion requires obfuscation, cannot survive the Truth Ten days after Remembrance Day (November 21, 2010), the Toronto Star, Canada’s highest-circulation newspaper, ran a massive four-page “Insight” feature explaining how an abortionist can reconcile his strong support for “women’s rights” with his personal life. One might imagine a future Remembrance Day when the unborn are remembered and memorialized. Major John McCrae’s celebrated poem could equally apply to the unborn as to ... (Continue reading)

On Feb. 1, Live Action released a video showing a Planned Parenthood manager at a facility in New Jersey giving a man and woman, two actors posing as a pimp and prostitute, advice on how to manage the operation while obtaining abortion, contraception, and STD testing services for underage prostitutes. Days before ... (Continue reading)

Big Government’s back alley

As I was leaving Fox News last night, I glanced up at the monitor and caught Juan Williams expressing mystification to Sean Hannity as to why Republicans in Congress were wasting the country’s time on a “little thing” like abortion. Gee, I dunno. Maybe it’s something to do with a mass murderer in Pennsylvania, or Planned Parenthood clinics facilitating the sex trafficking of minors. From the Office of the District Attorney in Philadelphia (Grand Jury report Investigation of Women’s Medical Society): Viable ... (Continue reading)
