Those engaged in fighting abortion will note that the rules change–government procedure, law, and science, when abortion is the topic. It’s called “the abortion distortion.” I just spoke to Rachel MacNair yesterday about this regarding women’s mental health after abortion.
Read about another distortion here:
Joanne Byfield, president of the anti-abortion group Life Canada, said the government caught them off guard by giving the Order to Dr. Morgentaler in Quebec City in the midst of a federal election campaign and on the eve of the Thanksgiving long weekend. “I think the whole thing has been designed to stifle protest,” Ms. Byfield said. “We won’t send anyone (to Quebec) because it’s hard to mobilize people across the country within a day’s notice.” A spokeswoman for Gov. Gen. Michaëlle Jean acknowledged that Order of Canada ceremonies are rarely held outside Rideau Hall in Ottawa, but stressed it wasn’t a precedent.
