I was all ready to do an interview this afternoon for CTV’s PowerPlay – a great opportunity to discuss the vote last night on Motion 312 and all the fall-out that has since taken place.
But alas, there was no one on ‘the other side’ that would step up to the plate and discuss the issue. The young woman arranging the interview really did give it a valiant go, I do believe that. But despite my own willingness to participate, there was a sense that we certainly couldn’t have me do the interview all alone. Representing the views of a pro-life individual without anyone to challenge them is a BIT much!
I think, if anything has been made clear throughout these months leading up to yesterday’s vote, it is that the “other side’ really is not in favour of the democratic process. They are terrified of the debate, terrified of what medical science might reveal, and hold onto their decades-old feminist screed more dogmatically than any religious fanatic I have ever come across.
So the interview was cancelled. ‘Tis a pity, cause I also wanted to show off my big, 38-week, pregnant belly (containing my child which according to Section 223 is not a human-being; something that I find grossly offensive).by
