Greetings Fellow Pro-Lifer!

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.

So what does a feminist look like?

By Jonathon Van Maren

“[Sarah Palin’s] greatest hypocrisy is her pretense that she is woman. The Republican Party’s cynical calculation that because she has a womb and makes lots and lots of babies (and drives them to school! Wow!) she speaks for the women of America, and will capture their hearts and their votes, has driven thousands of real women to take to their computers in outrage.”

Wendy Doniger, Professor of Religions, University of Chicago’s Divinity School, Washington Post.

A popular pro-choice chant that pro-life activists face whether on the streets or on campus entails one woman screaming “Tell me what a feminist looks like!” with her coterie replying with vigour, “THIS IS WHAT A FEMINIST LOOKS LIKE!”

This leads us to a rather interesting question: what does a feminist look like? And not in the literal sense—in the abstract sense of what a true feminist actually is?

Mother's Day for Abortion Advocates

By Jonathon Van Maren

Mother’s Day once again brought with it the usual flurry of news stories intended to be heart-warming, with advertisements for products that would definitely make you Mom’s favourite child.  Central to the messaging, of course, was an all-around, generally genuine appreciation for mothers and the immense sacrifices they make for their children.

Mother’s Day is a rather delicate subject for those involved in the abortion debate though.  Those of us on the pro-life side of the fence mourn the lost motherhood of millions of post-abortive women, recognizing that for many of them,  Mother’s Day is a time of sad reflection and private mourning.  And yet, we and celebrate those who made immense sacrifices to place their children for adoption or raise them under difficult circumstances. Sensitivity on the part of those on both sides of the debate is especially paramount on Mother’s Day.

The South African Experience: Post #1

Dear friends and supporters of CCBR. My name is Francisco Gomez and I am a new staff and “Choice” Chain coordinator of CCBR.

But before I begin my work at the Canadian office, I will be taking part of a 3-month pro-life mission in South Africa with the objective to share CCBR’s knowledge, vision, and approach with the African people. I will be posting updates of my work and experiences so if you wish to know more about my whereabouts stay tuned!

Baby Saved 10 Years Ago, Thanks to Abortion Images

We just received this encouraging e-mail from Show the Truth, a pro-life group in Eastern Canada that displays graphic abortion images like we do:

"I was talking to a neighbour during my garage sale on Saturday who recently moved close to me.
She said she saw the Show the Truth signs when they were here 10 years ago on King and Weber St. N.
