As such, what the Pope says and writes is extremely important for the pro-life community, and after Evangelii Gaudium or “The Joy of the Gospel,” was issued there was enough hysteria to fill a CBC show about the achievements of Henry Morgentaler! This papal statement was ... (Continue reading)

Supreme Court hears prostitution challenge

The Supreme Court of Canada asked government lawyers tough questions as they heard arguments for and against the law on prostitution.
