Talk Turkey Josie Luetke Some friends of mine have been floating around the idea of leaving the pro-life movement and retreating into family life or their careers.

Part of ... (Continue reading)

The rape exception

When the story broke that several Saskatchewan Party leadership contenders were pro-life, the reaction focused on the fact that Ken Cheveldayoff did not have an exception for rape. Within 24 hours, the presumptive frontrunner in the race to replace Brad Wall was backing down from his principled pro-life position. Of course, he said, he supported a “woman’s right to choose” in “circumstances where abortion is necessary.” Not surprisingly, he pointed to an exception for rape: “let me be very clear ...

Eight myths of choice

Eight myths of choice

Editor’s Note: The following is excerpted from a talk delivered to interns on Canada’s Parliament Hill by Cardus Family program director Andrea Mrozek. There’s a myth embedded in a new status quo on Parliament Hill around women’s issues and it’s this: that women support the right to choose and the right to choose supports women. Yet this opinion, that of the woman who supports access to abortion, is no more ... (Continue reading)

People of the year Brad Trost and Pierre Lemieux

Unlike Time magazine which awards a Man of the Year annually to the individual (usually) who has the most influence in world affairs, The Interim honours an individual only occasionally. Appearing on Time’s cover is not necessarily a badge of honour; they have (in)famously named tyrants and dictators their Man of the Year, because even murderers can be the most important figures moving history. The Interim chooses to honour ... (Continue reading)

Will we bear the cost?

The ascendancy of Rees-Mogg is all the more remarkable in that he has never made any secret about his theologically orthodox Catholic beliefs. Tim Farron, ... (Continue reading)
