Hamilton city council doesn’t like ‘graphic images’

Hamilton’s city council voted last week to complain to the provincial and federal government, asking for a ban of graphic photos of abortion victims. The Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform is continuing its “Face the Children” campaign, which seems to be the latest use of graphic images in the area that has upset local politicians. CBC posted a story on the matter, reporting “The CCBR distributed as many as 50,000 postcards to Hamilton ... (Continue reading)

Celebrating childlessness?

Today’s XOJane deception is brought to you by a young woman named Amanda Blum. While working with her in the family garage one day, Blum’s father admitted that he never wanted children. “There was no emotion in his voice about it.” Blum remembered. “It was said with the same emphasis one might use while mentioning what they ate for breakfast.” From a young age, Blum herself knew that she did not want kids. Though she commended her ... (Continue reading)

Fetal rights in Brazil

Soccer fans around the world will be glued to their screens for the next month as the World Cup began this past week. Since it is being hosted in Brazil, some Interim staff thought it might be interesting to look into pro-life news there. A quick search revealed some interesting legal situations involving preborn children. (All information is taken from a translated version of Brazil’s Criminal Code, unless otherwise noted.) For the most part, ... (Continue reading)

Abortion is not just a religious issue: libertarian

Julie Borowski has a YouTube video (about two minutes) entitled "Abortion isn't just a religious issue." Borowski says "Don't hurt innocent people" is a principle non-religious people can hold and is, indeed, a libertarian principle. That the preborn child is a human being is not a matter of religious dogma, but scientific fact. Opposing abortion expands liberty by protecting the preborn child from deadly force.

Monsignor Foy: celebrating 75 year of priestly dedication

Tomorrow there will be a Solemn Mass "in thanksgiving to God and in honour of the Very Reverend Monsignor Vincent Foy" to mark the 75th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood. Cardinal Thomas Collins will celebrate Mass at St. Lawrence the Martyr Catholic Church at 2210 Lawrence East, Scarborough. 75 years in the priesthood is a rare celebration. A man needs to both to be ordained young and live long. Monsignor Foy is 98. He was ordained June 3, 1939, a ... (Continue reading)

Review: Liars: The McGuinty-Wynne Record

ReviewPaul Tuns Liars: The McGuinty-Wynne Record by Daniel Dickin (Freedom Press Canada Inc., $19.95, 222 pages) My old publisher Freedom Press has released a timely book, Liars: The McGuinty-Wynne Record by Daniel Dickin. The title says it all and one sentence in the introduction further explains his thesis: "While the average Ontario citizen benefitted under the Big Blue Conservative governments of the 20th century, the only people benefiting from the Ontario Liberals are the public sector unions and Liberal Party elites." ...

CLC petitions Trudeau to reverse abortion position

Campaign Life Coalition has launched a website with a petition and social media campaign to "Demand Justin Repeal This Policy of Exclusion, Intolerance & Discrimination" -- the policy, of course, being Justin Trudeau's diktat that all Liberal candidates in the future must be "pro-choice." The Toronto Sun has a story on CLC's campaign, reporting, "Canada's largest anti-abortion group says that for democracy to flourish, pluralistic views and diversity of voices must be permitted on issues of conscience in ...

Our coverage of Canada’s National March for Life

The other cover story is our coverage and ... (Continue reading)

Canada’s Catholic bishops and Justin Trudeau

As usual Liberal Party activist Adam Goldenberg doesn't get it. He says in the Globe and Mail that Justin Trudeau is right to demand a pro-abortion litmus test on candidates for the Liberal Party and religious leaders are wrong: It’s one thing for clergy to express their views on a policy issue, but it’s quite another for them to assert that their parishioners have no choice but to listen to them. Want to live in a country where ... (Continue reading)

Sex ed and abortion

A researcher found that 12.5% of women at the University of Quebec at Montreal have had an abortion with about a quarter of them having more than one. Needless to say the researcher, UQAM "sexologist" Sylvie Levesque, says there needs to be more sex ed and/or sexual health services on campus. I'm not sure how anyone can argue with a straight face that there is not enough information about sex in schools. It is curious how as sex education ... (Continue reading)

Politics as art of the possible

The far left-wing Katrina vandenHeuvel tweets: The late Senator Paul Wellstone liked to say,"if politics is the art of the possible, then organizing is art of making more possible." Until we have politicians of courage and leadership, pro-lifers must work to change hearts and minds of the voting public so elected officials in both the United States and Canada will follow. We make our own victories. Get involved in high-impact pro-life activism and convince others with pro-life sympathies to ... (Continue reading)

Abortion’s effects on women, family, society

Andrea Mrozek, executive director of the Institute of Marriage and Family Canada and blogger at ProWomanProLife, is one of the most thoughtful and compassionate commentators on abortion in Canada today. The IMFC has released a paper, "Interconnected: How abortion impacts mothers, families and our society," in which Mrozek "examines research that is typically ignored about abortion’s effect on the family. The impact of abortion on marriage, sexuality, mental health and finally, family life in greater society are all ... (Continue reading)

The Japan Times reports: Japan’s population has shrunk for the third year running, with the elderly making up a quarter of the total for the first time, government data showed Tuesday.

RU-486 decision expected in 2015

iPolitics reports that Health Canada is not likely to decide whether to approve the abortion drug RU-486 (mifespristone, or as iPolitics calls it, the "gold standard" in abortion pills). The Interim reported in February that Health Canada confirmed that an unnamed company had applied to have mifepristone approved and that last year a group of doctors called for an expedited approval of importation of the drug. Campaign Life Coalition's 2014 National March for Life is focused on Health Canada's ... (Continue reading)

The man who proved Malthus wrong born 100 years ago today

Agronomist Norman Borlaug was born 100 years ago today. I think he was one of the greatest human beings who ever lived, and because he did, millions of others who might have died due to starvation also lived. I wrote an article for The Interim about Borlaug when he died in 2009, entitled "Borlaug proved Malthus wrong." Here's a snippet: In 1968, Paul Ehrlich said in his best-selling apocalyptic book The Population Bomb that the world was headed toward a Malthusian ... (Continue reading)
