AIDS: cover-up goes on

A recent letter in the Toronto Globe complained about a reference to AIDS as a homosexual disease. It wasn’t so, the writer stated, accusing the person making the original statement of homophobia (hatred or fear of homosexuals). The real fear today, however, is associated with the refusal to admit that it is a homosexual disease; over nine-tenths of those in Canada who [...]

A lion in winter

“I love talking about myself, I just don’t want others talking about me,” replied Father Ted Colleton when I requested a visit to discuss this column. Mixing mischievous humour with gracious Irish hospitality, he declares brightly, “Come about ten in the morning so I can tell you what questions to ask me and them we’ll go to lunch.” And so began the [...]

Book Review – War against humanity

“The War Against Population The Economics and Ideology of Population Control” Jacqueline Kasun Ignatius Press San Francisco “Overpopulation” is one of the most devoutly held dogmas of our time. The government, the media, the education system periodically issue stern forebodings of the economic, ecological and personal disasters that are just around the corner if we do not act immediately to control the [...]

Contraception and abortion – why you can’t have one without the other

I am constantly amazed at the number of letters received by The Interim which indicate a complete lack of understanding regarding contraception and abortion. Many people fail to make the connection between the two topics, assuming that if contraceptives are used, one simply doesn’t get pregnant. This is absolutely untrue! I myself managed to become pregnant three times with an IUD (intrauterine [...]

You were asking . . .

What was wrong with Amendment A? The government’s proposal of Amendment A, which permitted abortions for the health or life of the mother, would in fact have resulted in a law which was even more liberal than that of 1969. For the past 20 years, pro-life workers have been struggling to regain legal protection for the pre-born child, and now, for the [...]

Counter-witness & Catholics

The problem of giving witness counter to one’s beliefs is as old as mankind. Each generation has to choose between expediency and principle according to the circumstances in which it finds itself. History seems to show that most people incline towards expediency and compromise, leaving the defence of principle to the few. Yet unless the few manage to garner enough support at [...]

Two women – two approaches

At the Human Life Conference in Toronto, the theatre in which the 9:00 a.m. session on Friday, October 28 was to be held was jammed full. The topic was pro-life picketing and Operation Rescue.

Saving babies in WINNIPEG

In his book, The Everlasting Man, the inimitable English writer G. K. Chesterton recounts a controversy which occurred in his parish church over a statue of the Virgin Mother and the Christ Child. The congregation was apparently concerned that undue attention would be focused on the mother, at the expense of the Child! Following much discussion, a compromise was reached – the [...]

Rescue in Australia

The Right to Life movement in Australia is stepping up its campaign against abortion. On August 11, 1988, a group of 40 pro-lifers followed the tactics of Operation Rescue in the United States, sat down on the lawn and verandah in Richmond, Virginia, and refused to move. They sat, holding their signs, and sang quietly. When the clinic spokesman told them they [...]

What happened to our Doctors?

The Doctors Here is a story which appeared in the most recent London Right to Life Newsletter. It is probably not factually true, but is a parable with a very striking lesson. I shall tell it briefly in my own words. A young mother carrying a baby came into a doctor’s office. She said, “Doctor, I want you to get me out [...]
