Canada is trying to push abortion in his country. This pro-life Bishop is fighting back

An African bishop slammed the Justin Trudeau government after a Liberal minister said Canada must be “subtle” in pushing abortion in African countries where it is not legal.

International Development Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau made the remarks to the Globe and Mail when discussing the Liberal commitment of $97 million to the Democratic Republic of Congo.

"In Canada, you are very interested in the abortion part, but if we want to be effective here, the idea is not to put the light specifically on that. We have to be more subtle," Bibeau said.

"The idea is not to put us and to put our partners who work in the field every day in a delicate situation."

But Bishop Emmanuel Bajedo of Oyo, Nigeria, decried the minister’s comments.

"Can there be a subtle way of committing a crime? I think not," he told LifeSiteNews in an email.

"Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau’s comments show that she and her government do fully realize that they are engaged in an illegality in the DFRC, by pushing this pro-abortion methods on women in a country where abortion is illegal," he said.

"Unfortunately, some Western countries today play by the ‘economic might is right’ principle," added Badejo, communications director for the African bishops.

"The Liberal government puts a doubt to the general belief that true civilization goes as well with ethical and moral considerations."

Georgia woman charged with murder for ending pregnancy with pill

Advocates on both sides of the abortion debate said they are stunned that police arrested a Georgia woman on murder charges after a hospital social worker told officers she terminated her pregnancy by taking abortion pills.

Even opponents of abortion say it may be hard for Georgia authorities to follow through with the prosecution.

"I have been involved in the pro-life movement for well over 20 years, and I'm not aware of a situation like this ever," said Genevieve Wilson, a director of the anti-abortion group Georgia Right to Life. "I'm very surprised by it."

Kelly McParland: Stillbirth study shows abortion has lost the terminology war

The language of abortion is a wondrous thing. The success of the "pro-Choice" movement was built to a significant extent on its ability to divert the issue away from the reality of abortion – i.e. ending lives – towards a contrived battle over "a womans right to choose." If you were repulsed by abortion, you were "anti-choice", and therefore anti-woman. Brilliant. Dishonest, but brilliant.

Still, the readiness with which the fraudulence of the language is accepted is still enough to give you pause. Take, for instance, an article that appeared this week, on research into stillbirths in Canada.

Judge lambasts Linda Gibbons, gives maximum sentence for abortion clinic protest

TORONTO, September 11, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- Linda Gibbons was sentenced to the maximum of six months in prison, with 29 days yet to serve when taking into account time already in custody, as her sentencing hearing concluded at the provincial court at College Park in downtown Toronto this afternoon.

She had been found guilty of disobeying a court order at the conclusion of her trial this past Monday by Madam Justice Feroza Bhabha, in relation to her peaceful protest outside the "Morgentaler Clinic" abortion site in Toronto on June 11. That facility is protected by a "bubble zone" law that prohibits pro-life activity within a certain perimeter around the building.

Gibbons has been in and out of jail for years over her protests outside Toronto abortion clinics, during which she silently walks back and forth on the sidewalk, and offers counseling to women who come to the clinic to abort their babies.

Mary Wagner arrested again in Toronto while speaking to abortion-minded women

Mary Wagner was arrested Tuesday morning after entering the Bloor West Village Women's Clinic. Mary entered the abortion facility around 9:15 a.m., with pairs of white and red roses with attached pregnancy support hot-line cards. She had pro-life counselling pamphlets available to give to the women who were scheduled for abortions that hour.

It did not take very long for the police to arrive, three cruisers within 35 minutes. Mary was arrested and handcuffed around 10:00 a.m. Several supporters were outside on the sidewalk, praying and distributing pro-life pamphlets to the general public. One of the supporters, Father Paul Nicholson of the London Catholic Diocese, was present to lend moral and spiritual support to Mary. He stated that Mary is acting in solidarity with the victims of abortion, and that her action is "pricking the guilty conscience of a nation that is pretending to play dumb" when it comes to the killing of innocent unborn human beings.
