Justin Trudeau’s attempt to play wedge politics with the abortion issue fell flat at last week’s French language debate. This must have been disappointing for him as his position has been clear for some time: he supports every form of abortion – including for the sole purpose of terminating the lives of girl babies simply because they are female – at every stage of pregnancy. He even issued an edict stating that anyone who questioned the status quo was not welcome in the Liberal party.
More than 100 volunteers will gather in Memorial Provincial Park across from the Manitoba Legislative Building, in downtown Winnipeg tomorrow to plant 100,000 pink and blue flags.
Canada’s refusal to recognize pre-born human rights has once again manifested in a real life tragedy. Police in Beloeil, Quebec are reporting that the body of Cheryl Bau-Tremblay was found inside the home she shared with her partner. Ms. Bau-Tremblay was five months pregnant at the time of her death.

When the horrors of the Holocaust became public in the 1940s, eugenics faded to the background. But once again we are witnessing science being manipulated in an attempt to create a more “perfect” society.
A political campaign being carried out by anti-abortion groups is evoking reactions from across the country. The two groups, Campaign Life Coalition and Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform have combined their resources and are in the process of delivering one million postcards in advance of the October federal election. The postcards show an aborted baby juxtaposed with the well-known face of Justin Trudeau and the phrase “No 2 Trudeau”. It's a provocative message to be sure.
