uOttawa Students For Life: Pro-Lifers Appear on Michael Coren Show

This post was written for uOttawa Students For Life by uOttawa Students For Life. It does not necessarily represent the views of NCLN.

On October 21, former uOSFL president Rebecca Richmond, and current Executive Director of National Campus Life Network, appeared on the Michael Coren Show. She appeared along with NCLN President Theresa Gilbert, and Carleton Lifeline’s Ruth Lobo and James Shaw. Jojo Ruba of the Canadian Centre for Bioethical Reform and Alanna Campbell of the Calgary Pro-life club appeared via satellite.

The panel met to discuss the issues of university censorship of the pro-life message, which came to a head in the arrest of 6 pro-life students attempting to display the Genocide Awareness Project at Carleton University earlier this month. In the past three years, 8 university pro-life clubs have met with antagonism from their university administrations over club status or other club rights because of their unpopular and controversial viewpoints. These clubs include UVic, Lakehead, Brandon, and York. Jojo Ruba also highlighted the student protesting he has encountered attempting to deliver his lecture “Echoes of the Holocaust” at St. Mary’s and McGill.

uOSFL would like to thank the University of Ottawa for the fair and even-handed treatment they have given us, in that we have neither lost our club status nor our club funding. However, we have received antagonism from pro-choice groups on our campus, most notably the Women’s Resource Centre, which was very antagonistic of our annual baby-shower fundraiser, which supplies maternity and infant clothing and supplies to women in adverse circumstances trying to raise children, through our partnership with First Place Pregnancy Centre.

We encourage people to watch the video of the Michael Coren Show and to think about the ramifications of this type of thinking not in terms of the pro-life message, but in terms of freedom of speech and censorship.

Youth Protecting Youth: Links on comparing abortion to genocide, and free speech on TV

This post was written for Youth Protecting Youth by ypyvicepresident. It does not necessarily represent the views of NCLN.

As the date of the “Echoes of the Holocaust” presentation gets closer, and the controversy continues, I invite you to read an excellent piece about the comparison between abortion and the Holocaust (as well as other human rights abuses) written by Zuza Kurzawa, the president of the pro-life club at Queen’s university in Ontario. Zuza was the only non-Carleton student to be arrested October 4, and has written this in response to criticism she has received in regards to her involvement with pro-life outreach that compares abortion to genocide, particulary demands from students on her own campus that she make a formal apology for such comparisons. Definitely worth reading:

Also of interest, discussion of the arrests at Carleton and of free speech on university campuses in general on the Michael Coren show tonight.

University of Toronto Students for Life: Michael Coren on the Carleton Arrests

Michael Coren discusses the Carleton arrests on his TV show around the 15:30 mark with panelists Laura Babcock, David Menzies, and Matt Gurney (via @NCLN).

We’ve highlighted his excellent coverage of the campus free speech issues that pro-life students face in the past, as he’s often spoken on campuses for pro-life clubs.
