The ultimate safe space

In recent years, so-called safe spaces have popped up on university campuses in both the United States and Canada. From designated rooms with puppies and pillows for people who need a retreat from the pressures of the real world of cloistered academia to bans on certain points of view in student common areas and even classrooms, the idea that young people should be sheltered from ideas that offend them has begun to go mainstream. Following the U.S. election in November, ... (Continue reading)

Wagner’s 2012 arrest appealed

Mary Wagner Mary Wagner was denied a fair hearing at her 2014 trial after 22 months in jail when trial judge Fergus O’Donnell issued an “ambush opinion” that ignored the grounds of her defence, Wagner’s lawyer has argued.

Woman risks arrest to pray in abortion mill

A pro-life woman who entered a Toronto abortion facility Dec. 14 intending to hand out pro-life cards and pray, was able to stay for a considerable time praying, avoiding arrest only after a man in the waiting room begged staff not to call the police. Making the event even more unusual is that the abortion facility is the exact same one that pro-life activist Mary Wagner was arrested earlier that week. Nanci, who asked to be identified by her first name ... (Continue reading)

Conservative leadership race, so far

The Conservative leadership race that will be decided in May 2017 has one declared pro-lifer, MP Brad Trost (Saskatoon-University), and another considering throwing his hat into the ring, former MP Pierre Lemieux (Glengarry-Prescott-Russell). Campaign Life Coalition rates them as both pro-life. We thought there would be a third pro-lifer joining them in the race. Alas, we are profoundly disappointed with Andrew Scheer’s comments when he announced he was seeking the leadership. Scheer said he would not re-open the abortion issue. He ... (Continue reading)

Four pro-life women

Abortion advocates often dismiss the pro-life movement as populated by old white men intent on controlling women’s bodies. A simple look around the offices of any pro-life group or demonstration would dispel the slander. Since the beginning, the pro-life movement has been both populated and led by courageous, faithful women. In the last month or so we have celebrated the lives of four such women, three who passed away and one who was canonized in the Catholic Church. The most famous ... (Continue reading)
