Joanna Alphonso: The monumental Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision rendered in June of 2022, overturning the landmark Roe v. Wade (1973), sparked a digital wave promoting early abortion access to women with unwanted pregnancies. The Roe decision held that abortion was a constitutional right.

Why Liberals should be pro-life

This month, we begin a series reviewing the reasons why the three largest national political parties in Canada should be staunch and unapologetic defenders of the pro-life cause. Currently, of course, only one of the big three national political parties is even hospitable to pro-lifers, and the other two parties have adopted pro-abortion policies at the level of their platform. But there [...]

Cheers for premiers

The governments of Blaine Higgs and Scott Moe in New Brunswick and Saskatchewan deserve praise for taking action to uphold parental rights. Both have announced policies that require parents know what is happening in their children’s schools. New Brunswick no longer allows schools to refer to children’s “preferred” name or pronouns of gender-confused students without the permission of parents. Saskatchewan’s new “Parental [...]

And Then There Was This, July August 2023

By J.M. Glover: Imposing abortion globally Western countries, like Canada and the U.S., provide assistance to developing countries to help combat medical emergencies like HIV/AIDS, poverty and weather-related catastrophes.

Late-term abortions

Rory Leishman: Dr. Warren Hern is a cold-hearted killer—the moral equivalent of a hired assassin—who has no compunction about aborting even the healthy baby of a healthy mother during the last stages of a pregnancy simply because the mother has decided that she no longer wants her child to live. In this respect, Hern stands virtually alone. Only a tiny minority of [...]

The abortion issue and the emergence of false gods

Donald DeMarco, Commentary: In an exceptionally well-reasoned article that appeared in The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly (“Thomas Aquinas on the Acts of Creation and Procreation,” Winter 2003), Susan Seiner-Wright argued that, “For many, sexual activity is clearly not related to a conceived child as ‘a way is related to its end.’ Instead, sexual activity clearly bears the characteristics of immanent action, which Aquinas [...]
