Alberta judge: Infanticide is apparently just a late, late-term abortion.

by Jonathon Van Maren

On April 13, 2005, 19 year old Katrina Effert secretly gave birth to a baby boy in her parent’s home. She then strangled the child with her underwear, and tossed the corpse over the fence into the yard of one of the neighbours.

Not all Canadians Get to Celebrate Canada Day by Jonathon Van Maren

On July 1st, CCBR presented our "Choice" Chain project at the Canada Day Parade. One attendee, Dennis Kilfoy, wrote a letter to the Edmonton Journal that can be found here:

Here is our response:

I have noticed that there have been several letters in regards to our pro-life demonstration at the July 1st Canada Day parade.

Mr. Kilfoy is correct: we did indeed intend to disturb people. Not by our protest, but by what we were protesting.

The Real Reason People don't like Abortion Victim Photography

By Jonathon Van Maren

As most of you know, the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform primarily has a graphic strategy—using large photos of what abortion does to the pre-born to confront the culture and raise awareness about what is actually being “chosen.” This strategy consistently results in accusations by people of various stripes—from our pro-abortion opponents to the queasier members of the pro-life ranks—that this strategy is inappropriate, or somehow has negative consequences.

Silence is Complicity by Jonathon Van Maren

Last week, the staff and interns of the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform (CCBR) set off on our second annual Reproductive “Choice” Campaign tour, this time through Central Alberta. The locations for “Choice” Chain and routes for our truck (which features huge photos of aborted foetuses in the first trimester) included Airdrie, Red Deer, Camrose and Edmonton. All of us agreed that our experiences in Edmonton were by far the most moving and frustrating.

Education or Indoctrination?

By Jonathon Van Maren

“Don’t let schooling interfere with your education.”  Mark Twain

Education has usually been trumpeted by classically liberal societies as the cornerstone for a free-thinking society. John F. Kennedy rightly noted that “Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education. The human mind is our fundamental resource.”

The greatest enemy of education, of course, is a closed mind. Much has been written about the left-leaning tendencies of secular universities.  The faculty are generally portrayed as a long-haired hippie hangover from the 1960’s, still bent on indoctrinating the apathetic student bodies on why Marx is the answer and America is the enemy.
