‘Wrongful birth’ suits indicate eugenic attitudes toward disabled

This past summer, the French high court ruled in favour of a family of a severely disabled French teen in a lawsuit against medical authorities that in effect says the child ought never have been born.

Saskatchewan activist fights, pays price for convictions

If there is one thing that Bill Whatcott doesn't do, it's miss an opportunity to proclaim what he believes. A big part of what he believes is that freedom of speech, justice and Christian activism are in short supply.

Secrecy surrounds Edmonton abortuary move

Edmonton is not gaining a new abortuary - the city's Henry Morgentaler abortion mill is merely changing locations. But the secretive way it is doing so is causing nearly as much furor. The Morgentaler abortuary is leaving the Canora location it has occupied for ten years and moving to Westmount, at 12409 - 109A Avenue, at an unknown date. Renovations have been [...]

The chaotic, inhumane ‘philosophy of Sigmund Freud’

Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), at a major crossroad in his life in 1896, wrote a letter to a friend expressing his desire to become a philosopher: "As a young man I longed for nothing else than philosophical knowledge, and I am now on the way to satisfy that longing by passing from medicine to psychology." In one sense, his philosophy was simple and [...]

God banished from Ottawa services

During the Sept. 14 National Day of Mourning, Prime Minister Jean Chretien said, "Words fail us." Especially one word - God. It was a word that was not uttered during the official ceremonies on Parliament Hill. Many Canadians of faith were appalled by government services that failed to mention anything greater than or outside ourselves, reminiscent of other public ceremonies that expunged [...]

The limits of the UN

Delusions of Grandeur: The United Nations and Global Interventionism, edited by Ted Galen Carpenter (Cato Institute, 1997, $15.95) It would be no exaggeration to say that Canada's elite loves the United Nations. The spirit of Lester B. Pearson is very much alive in the natural governing party, and none of the increasingly irrelevant opposition parties have even suggested Canada should withdraw from [...]

UN needs to be fixed

Created in the wake of World War II, the United Nations has veered far from its intended reason for existence to mediate disputes and foster international co-operation to become a large, overbearing global entity that violates national sovereignty by promoting a radical, socially activist agenda. No longer primarily worried about mediating international disputes, it has engaged in attempts to make policy for [...]

Despite what the politicians, pundits and public say, it was not America or [...]
