Pro-Life Group Asks For Cheating Posters Removal

11 12 2009

A Catholic pro-life group helped donate a nativity manger scene to Old City Hall in Toronto. They had put up a poster that explained who had donated the nativity scene, only to have the poster removed because it supposedly violated human rights. So now The Toronto Sun is reporting that this group, Gethsemane Ministries, is requesting that ads on streetcars that encourage cheating be removed.

“It is totally inappropriate for a city streetcar,” said Suresh Dominic, founder of Gethsemane Ministries and an anti-abortion activist.

“Forget the city’s streetcars, it should not be promoted at all anywhere in Canada,” Dominic said. “If we want to build this country as a stable nation, we should promote strong families.”

With God as Their Cover

10 12 2009

Kathryn Jean Lopez has a great piece at NRO that discusses the anger of the Democrats and Pro-Abortion activists at Congressman Bart Stupak’s amendment to the House healthcare bill that would not allow federal funds to be used for abortions.

Abortion, they say, wasn’t supposed to be an issue in the health-care debate. By which they mean: The revolution must include abortion. “Reproductive rights are human rights” is the way Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, put it. Abortion is, in fact, a “God-given right,” according to the Rev. Carlton Veazey, a Baptist minister and the president and CEO of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice.

Huh??? Abortion is a God-given right??? He must be talking about one of those other gods.

Those who oppose abortion, of course, agree with them on the first part of that assertion, the “keep abortion out” mantra. However, the abortion advocates insist that it is “gender discrimination” to treat abortion as something other than just another medical procedure. They view the House version of the health-care bill as a “rollback” of women’s rights. The problem is: If you want government to take over health care in America, you can’t avoid stirring up this issue. Because the life-ending, do-harm “medical procedure” of abortion is legal — either you avoid government financial entanglement with it or you don’t, and, if you don’t, you violate the conscience rights of millions of Americans.
