SCC assisted suicide decision is irresponsible and dangerous

Alex Schadenberg The Supreme Court of Canada has made an activist decision by giving physicians the right in law to cause the death of people by euthanasia and assisted suicide. The Court has made an irresponsible decision, what is more, by using imprecise and subjective language, leaving many issues to be determined by Parliament; without objective criteria the decision sets [...]

Activist judges strike down ban on assisted suicide

National Affairs Rory Leishman With the precedent-shattering ruling in Carter v. Canada on Feb. 6, nine robed dictators on the Supreme Court of Canada not only struck down the longstanding ban on physician-assisted suicide in the Criminal Code: they also delivered a lethal blow to democracy and the rule of law in Canada. Consider the evidence: Gloria Taylor, the now [...]

Prayer too important to be mere lip service

Michael Coren Journalist for Life Whether we like it or not, there are no magic words that we have to utter but there are sacred deeds that we need to perform. Like it or not there are no crucial statements in life but there are essential actions for those who live it. I refer to the immensely holy tempest in [...]

Children from large families less likely to divorce

Sociology professor Doug Downey, assistant professor Donna Bobbitt-Zeher, and graduate student Joseph Merry from Ohio State University presented their findings at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association on August 13, 2013. Data from the General Social Survey, which involves interviews with 57,000 American adults between 1972 and [...]

Nathan Ko, a Grade 11 student at St. Brother Andre C.H.S. in Markham, Ont., won first prize in the Fr. Ted Colleton Scholarship, co-sponsored by the Niagara Region Right to Life Association and The Interim.

Death wish

“Fear not,” Dingwall said, when I complained about the Supreme Court’s invalidation of the law against physician-assisted suicide. “What do you mean ‘fear not’?” I replied. “The learned judges are turning compliant doctors into legally approved merchants of death.” “They turned into that when the unlearned politicians legalized limited abortion and the Supreme Court removed the limits.” “In both cases,” I conceded, [...]

Conscience rights under assault in Ontario, Saskatchewan

The Supreme Court’s doctor-assisted suicide decision gives greater urgency to the concerns of physicians who are fighting to maintain conscience rights in Ontario and Saskatchewan. Feb. 20 was the deadline for feedback to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario on a draft policy -- “Professional Obligations and Human Rights” -- proposing to force Ontario physicians to refer for and potentially [...]

Grade-by-grade breakdown of Wynne’s graphic new sex-ed program

While the Ontario Liberal government under lesbian Premier Kathleen Wynne would have parents believe its newly unveiled sex-ed program is an unbiased presentation of fact, a detailed look at what kids in grades 1-8 are expected to learn reveals something entirely different. The 2015 Health and Physical Education program states in its earliest pages that sexual health “is more than simply teaching [...]

The pornification of Hollywood

When Fifty Shades of Grey made the transition from best-selling novel to box office smash movie – on Valentine’s Day, no less – we were given another opportunity to watch the border between the mainstream movie industry and its pornographic cousin evaporate into further irrelevance. For anyone living in blissful isolation for the last couple of years, Fifty Shades began life as [...]

Planned Parenthood to teach ‘safe sexting’

Planned Parenthood Ottawa is holding workshops to instruct teens in safe sexting. “If you tell youth not to do it, simply that it’s illegal, they hear, ‘don’t get caught,’ and it doesn’t help them understand the actual risks involved in sexting,” said Lauren Dobson-Hughes, president of PP Ottawa, to Maclean’s. “We would rather youth talk about consent in an age-appropriate way, throughout [...]

Did Justin Trudeau really say abortion is Canada’s greatest achievement

So I saw Paul Tuns' link to Justin Trudeau's speech last week on "Canadian Liberty" and the Liberal Leader was conspicuous, as he usually is, in talking about liberty or Charter values, without being specific. Liberty is just this thing he invokes, because Liberals need to be about Liberty, he says. There is an exception to his lack of specificity, and that's [...]

L-G-B-T, X-Y-Zee, now I know my ABCs

Sanders, Wynne and sex ed. When Mark Steyn alluded to Kathleen Wynne’s renewed attempt to smuggle her radical “sex education” curriculum into the elementary school classroom (I’d call it a hidden agenda, but only conservatives have hidden agendas), Indigo CEO Heather Reisman nearly fell off her hostess chair. Interrupting her interview with Steyn on his new book, Canada’s self-proclaimed Reader-in-Chief [...]
