Marissa Poisson of Ottawa University writes an open letter to Michael Ignatieff. Nice. These students are impressive:
As a 22-year-old Canadian woman, I felt I needed to inform Ignatieff that there is by no means a Canadian consensus in favour of abortion. I believe that it is scientifically indisputable that abortion is the act of terminating a human life.
She references last night’s talk. I think it went well, but then again, I gave the talk. So when it shows up on YouTube, watch and decide for yourself! There were no attempts to shut us down, however, which on campuses across Canada these days is rare. I tend to think it’s because the position I take is actually so common sensical, that protesting it…would rightly make the other side look foolish. I do think it would be really fun to debate someone like Carolyn Bennett. Now that, that would be a great debate. We shall see if such a thing could come to pass in the future…
Thank you very much to the students of Ottawa University for their hard work and their courageous, public stance. Certainly seemed to be a large and thriving club, which is indicative of very good things for the future.by
