And extremists! Shocking.
This from the Executive Director of an organization that refuses to condemn sex-selective abortions and opposes measures which would criminalize the coercion of women. Le sigh.
Thankfully, our friends over at WeNeedaLaw responded to her op-ed:
She takes on the mainstream media for their coverage of the death of Dr. Henry Morgentaler as being too “balanced.” In her opinion it gives way to much credibility to today’s young, energetic and smart pro-life movement.
Interspersed in her rant Arthur says things like, “Apparently, the media thinks that [anti-choice] view has some kind of legitimacy and must be presented against the pro-choice view in the name of ‘balance’,” and, “The mainstream media continues to give space to these fanatics.” Later on in her lament she outs Jonathan Kay of the National Post by referring to one of his articles as “repellant libel” filled with “hateful comments.” […]
The fact is, Canadians’ knowledge of life prior to birth has greatly improved since the 70’s and 80’s when Morgentaler and the “Furious Feminists” were busy fooling us that a pre-born child was nothing more than a clump of cells. Abraham Lincoln once said, “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” Due to advances in science and medicine, less and less Canadians are being fooled by the empty pro-choice rhetoric that once held the day. For that reason it is entirely justifiable for the mainstream media to cover the rapidly expanding movement in Canada which is demanding changes in our laws regarding pre-born human rights.
