Canada’s road to Beijing

John Carpay: In Nanjing, a man crosses the street while the pedestrian light is still red. Within seconds, a billboard-sized screen nearby displays his name, his face and an admonition to obey the traffic lights.

The Kansas wake-up call

Andrew Lawton: Man does not live on Supreme Court decisions alone. The Kansas abortion referendum should serve as a reminder that culture matters far more than politics does.

The proposal was defeated 59 per cent to 41 per cent, which is about [...]

Who decides?

Rory Leishman: In addition to overturning the unfounded and outrageous abortion decision in Roe v. Wade (1976), the recent decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health raises another fundamental issue: Who should have primary responsibility in a democracy for determining public policy -- unelected judges or elected legislators? It is a question that Canadians [...]

And then there was this – July/August 2022

Infertility: a diabolical agenda When a woman becomes pregnant, she produces Human Chorioic Gonadotroin (HCG) through the placenta. It tells the ovaries to produce a second hormone called progesterone that then maintains the pregnancy. If the body creates antibodies against HCG, the moment a new baby is forming in the womb and starts producing HCG, it is destroyed like it was bacteria [...]

Euphemisms in abortion debate

Mary Zwicker: Language is an important tool in every debate, including the debate on abortion. Through the manipulation of language, one is easily able to make something perverted seem acceptable or even desirable.

The grubby reality of abortion

Mary Zwicker: The World Health Organization, among many others, markets abortion as a “safe, timely, affordable and respectful” procedure, one that ought to remain legal in order to avoid posing “a risk to not only the physical but also the mental and social well-being of women and girls.” Unfortunately, the reality of abortion is far less sterile and safe than pro-abortion activists [...]
