Re: Abor­tion a hot is­sue on Cana­dian cam­puses — Sept. 11

Ku­dos to Joyce Arthur, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Abor­tion Rights Coali­tion of Canada, who has fi­nally ex­posed the true tar­get of the pro-choice move­ment as be­ing those who hold re­li­gious be­liefs against abor­tion. Un­for­tu­nately, for many years the mantra was “pro­tect­ing the rights of women” when ac­tu­ally that has sim­ply been a pawn by the move­ment to cloak the real ob­jec­tive. Arthur sug­gests that cri­sis preg­nancy cen­tres use of­ten un­trained peer coun­sel­lors who are guided by tra­di­tional re­li­gious sex­ual moral­ity and bi­b­li­cal ethics. What proof, if any, does she have for this ac­cu­sa­tion? Fur­ther­more, if this type of moral­ity and ethics are dis­cussed, how is this against a democ­racy that sup­ports free­dom of speech and be­lief ?

To crit­ics of these cri­sis preg­nancy cen­tres on or off cam­puses, in­stead of be­ing a pawn to the pro-choice group, use your brains and re­search if the in­for­ma­tion given by them is or is not mis­lead­ing. You may be sur­prised. Also, ask your­self what have they to gain or lose if you do choose life in­stead of death for a baby that, through proven med­i­cal video and print re­search, is very much a hu­man be­ing in­side the womb.
