Abortion: one Presbyterian’s viewpoint

I should initially qualify my statements by explaining that I speak for Reformed Presbyterians who accept as their standard the Westminister Confession of Faith, and hold to the full, divine and infallible inspiration of Scripture. I will limit myself to a consideration of 3 main points. First of all, the anti-abortion movement is not confined to the Roman Catholic Church. Secondly, the underlying crime of abortion is that it is a direct breach of the 6th commandment, "Thou shall not ... (Continue reading)

Abortion controversy erupts in Spain

Spain's recently elected Socialist Prime Minister, Felipe Gonzalez, has proposed legislation to legalize abortion. This has prompted massive lobbying by opponents of abortion and has led to the first test of the Socialist Government's vowed determination to change that country's values and outlook. The Conservative opposition too has vowed "A fight with all possible means" against the proposed abortion law. Opposition leader, Manuel Fraga Iribarne, hopes to collect 500,000 signatures needed to bring about a referendum in an attempt to ... (Continue reading)

Morgantaler up-date – Winnipeg

It would seem that Morgentaler has decided that it would be easier to open an abortion clinic in Winnipeg owing to the fact that Manitoba at present has a NDP government which has abortion on demand as one of its policies. In addition, Manitoba's Attorney-General Roland Penner has publicly stated his own very strong personal pro-abortion views. On CBC National radio programme, "As It Happens", aired on December 2, 1982, Attorney-General Penner stated, "personally I am in favour of freedom ... (Continue reading)

Homemaker’s Magazine-Pro-Abortionists’ Propaganda Tool

The editor of Homemaker's Magazine, Jane Gale and its resident hard-line feminist columnist, Penney Kome, obviously see that the purpose of the magazine is to serve as consciousness raiser for the teeming masses of ignorant Canadian women who do not even realize that they are being oppressed. Consequently, many of the articles do not lend themselves to the "homemaker" image and the magazine has been aptly nicknamed "Homewrecker's" Magazine. This magazine is published ten times a year by Comac Communications ... (Continue reading)

NDP Policy on Abortion

In its revised manifesto written in January by a select NDP executive committee, the party has included a strong pro-abortion position. Included in the eleven-page statement of NDP principles and objectives it is stated that "people should have the right of choice in reproductive matters." This document will be presented at the party's next convention scheduled for the Canada Day weekend in Regina to mark the 50th anniversary of the first convention of the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation (CCF) a forerunner ...

Gordon Fairweather attacks Unborn

Gordon Fairweather, who anguished as a Conservative Member of Parliament for the federal riding of Fundy-Royal in New Brunswick for many years, was picked out of obscurity in 1977 by Prime Minister Trudeau and appointed Chief of Commissioner of Human Rights Commission of Canada. It may we be that his appointment was due more to the fact that the Liberal party felt the riding of Fundy-Royal was ripe for picking than to Fairweather's competence for the position. Fairweather's incompetence for the ... (Continue reading)

Morgentaler may sue Borowski

Dr. Henry Morgentaler wants a pubic apology from Pro-life Advocate Joe Borowski who alleged Morgentaler's abortion clinics have been found unsanitary in the past. Valdyn Duke, Morgentaler's Winnipeg lawyer, said in an interview yesterday (Feb. 9) that she will send a letter to Borowski asking for a retraction of the statements made at a pubic debate between the two men at the University of Manitoba Jan. 11. Borowski laughed at the request. During the debate, Borowski said unsanitary conditions led to Morgentaler's ... (Continue reading)

Assumption to award Chrétien

The Hon. Jean Chrétien, energy minister, may be awarded the prestigious Christian Cultural Award by Assumption University, this April 10th. Chrétien, the Minister of Justice during the introduction of the Charter of Rights, excluded the unborn from any protection and, as seen in a letter in the February 19th Catholic Register, as well as in letters sent to Father Health of Assumption University and to Bishop Sherlock of London, Ontario, Chrétien stated that "The government has no intention of changing ...

Manitoba Premier advised by the grassroots

Manitoba's Premier Howard Pawley went on a fact-finding mission throughout his province in early January. Mr. Pawley and most of his NDP cabinet are strong advocates of abortion-on-demand and, in fact, his party has a policy for unrestricted abortion in its platform. However, after his fact-finding mission, Pawley may not be so keen to impose his pro-abortion views on the population of Manitoba. This is due to the fact that one of the strongest messages Manitobans gave to Pawley was ... (Continue reading)

The Borowski University of Manitoba debate

January 27 was the date and the University of Manitoba was the place where, Joe Borowski, one of the most upright pro-life advocates, met head on with the champion abortionist, Henry Morgentaler. Lacking a chairperson this time round, the two men addressed a large student audience and exchanged their well established views. Mr. Borowski based his statements on established modern scientific and legally documented evidence. Morgentaler, ever eloquent rattled off the same tired viewpoints based on feeling and hard, gonadal ... (Continue reading)

Canadian Medical Association questionnaire on abortion

In 1971, the Canadian Medical Association in a close vote (78 to 74) stated that "there is justification on non-medical social grounds for the deliberate termination of pregnancy as long as the abortion is performed by a qualified medical practitioner with the approval of therapeutic abortion committees." The Canadian Medical Association has been in deep trouble ever since, not only because it lost tremendous credibility as a result of its position on abortion, but also because it has been under constant ...

Alberta to collect signatures

In a manner similar to the New Brunswick Right to Life Association, Alberta Campaign Life is calling for pro-life supporters to send their names and $2.00 covering cost in order to form a 100,000 name 'tabloid' to be inserted in Alberta's ten daily papers with a circulation of 588,000 province wide. The move was successful in the December '82 New Brunswick venture and Alberta hopes to celebrate the upcoming Edmonton pro-life week with a similar success. According to the newsletter, the ...
