'After-birth abortion'? Judge lets woman walk after drowning her newborn

A woman who drowned her newborn baby so that she could get to an exam at Kamloops' Thompson Rivers University just got two years' probation from a sympathetic provincial court judge because she claimed the baby was the result of a sexual assault.

"You can hardly even call this a slap on the wrist," said Jack Fonseca of the Campaign Life Coalition. "The same excuses used to justify abortion are now being applied to justify the murder of children after birth. I think it can be argued that this judge is decriminalizing child murder through the back door, by precedent."

Crown prosecutor Will Burrows told the court that Courtney Saul, now 19, gave birth to a baby boy, whom she named George Carlos, in the morning of December 15 in the bathroom of her basement apartment in Kamloops. "She held the baby for some time, but she had an exam that day. Because she had the exam, she didn't know what to do. She finally decided she should drown the baby. She did that in the sink and then she went to her exam."

Dismembering living unborn babies is 'very humane,' Planned Parenthood backer tells Congress

This week, the Congressional Judiciary Committee conducted its first hearing on the investigation of Planned Parenthood.

Titled "Planned Parenthood Exposed: Examining the Horrific Abortion Practices at the Nation's Largest Abortion Provider," this first hearing included four witnesses, one of which was Ms. Priscilla Smith, a Director and Senior Fellow at the Program for the Study of Reproductive Justice at Yale Law School. Her comments before the committee were truly horrifying.

During the questioning period, Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte read from Justice Kennedy's dissent in the U.S. Supreme Court Stenberg v. Carhart decision. Kennedy had quoted the testimony of Dr. Leroy Carhart, a famed and brutal late-term abortionist.

Hey, one man's prison is a prime minister's paradise

The left-wing eulogies for Cuban dictator Fidel Castro are pouring in from the press and from politicians, but a glowing statement from Canada's prime minister may beat out the competition.

Canadians are upset, says Dr. Charles McVety, president of Canada Christian College, "because everyone knows that Castro was a butcher with his firing squads."

But that grim history failed to make it into the statement from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (pictured above), who called Castro a "larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century."

UBC prof who denounced U of T colleague in gender debate has skeletons in her own classroom

A University of British Columbia professor who last week denounced a Toronto colleague for inciting hatred against a "precarious minority" of transgender people now stands accused of bullying heterosexual and bisexual students in her classroom.

Dr. Mary Bryson was speaking at a University of Toronto forum last Saturday about recent amendments that add "gender identity" and "gender expression" as protected grounds to the Canadian Human Rights Code and the Criminal Code.

In September, U of T psychology Professor Jordan Peterson spoke out against these amendments - they recently passed in the House of Commons - and vowed not to use the genderless pronouns they in effect mandate, saying such language rules are an assault on objectivity and biology.

Dildos on daytime TV? No problem: TV regulator clears phallic toys, F-word in recent ruling

Dildos on daytime TV? No problem, Canada's broadcast regulator said in a recent ruling. The occasional f-bomb? That's OK, too.

The Canadian Broadcast Standards Council was responding to a complaint from a mother that a lunch-hour show on Quebec-based MusiquePlus, a French-language channel similar to MuchMusic, was "totally inappropriate for children" because of the sexual content and gratuitous language.

The show in question, CTRL, posts humorous clips from YouTube and other media-sharing sites along with commentary from its three young hosts.

Give cops medals for efforts to stop park sex

If you can imagine, New Democrat MPP Cheri DiNovo wants the cops rebuked for arresting creeps who have sex in a public park.

Thankfully, some common sense prevails and Toronto Police Association President Mike McCormack wants her to apologize for making such a suggestion.

And I want medals and citations for all the 22 Division officers involved in making arrests in Etobicoke's Marie Curtis Park.

Bill 16 Passes Second Reading Allowing Men in Women's Spaces

Tuesday, October 18th was a dark day for Canada. The Liberal government presented Bill 16 - The Transgender Bill, to parliament for second reading. The Bill passed 248 - 40 with less than half of the Conservative members opposing the change to the criminal code. Upon enactment, males will be admitted to all female spaces and positions under the power of law. Any man who says he has an inner feeling of being female will be admitted into girl's showers, change rooms and bathrooms. No certification or operation required.

Since this proposed law changes the criminal code of Canada. anyone who opposes a man in a female space will be subject to imprisonment for up to 2 years.

Canada’s 'deplorables'? Apparently the very existence of social conservatives 'disturbs' Ontario's premier

Premier Kathleen Wynne says the fact that there are people who disagree with her radical social agenda "disturbs" her.

Wynne was ostensibly commenting to the Toronto Star on 19-year-old social conservative and devout Christian Sam Oosterhoff, who won Thursday's byelection in Niagara-Glanbrook for the Progressive Conservative Party seat held by Tim Hudak until recently.

Though Oosterhoff, a Brock University political science student, has said little about his values other than the fact that his faith is central to them, that he is "100 percent pro-life" and that he is for parental rights, that apparently is bothersome for Ontario's first Lesbian premier.

Wynne government targets 'mother' and 'father'

"Mother" may soon be replaced in Ontario law by the term "birth parent."

That's what's incorporated in amendments contained in the Liberal government's proposed Bill 28 which is designed to change the "Children's Law Reform Act, the Vital Statistics Act and various other acts respecting parentage."

Premier Kathleen Wynne's government says a new All Families Are Equal Act will modernize the definition of families.

MPs all agree: Porn's effect on public health in Canada needs to be addressed

A Conservative member's motion to study the health impact of pornography won rare unanimous support of all parties and members in the House of Commons.

Northern Alberta MP Arnold Viersen, the driving force behind M-47, told the House that "as a first-term MP, the impact of violent and sexually explicit material was not an issue I expected to bring forward when arriving here a year ago, nor was it on my radar."

But women's and children's protection agencies across Canada deluged the former auto mechanic with materials and entreaties to do something about what the London Abused Women's Centre called in a supportive letter, "a global public health crisis."

Ontario bill to alter definition of 'parents' to include gay couples moves to committee

The Ontario Liberal bill that will change the legal definition of parents to accommodate homosexual couples who have produced children through reproductive technologies is scheduled for public hearings before committee on October 17 and 18.

LGBTQ advocates joined with Attorney General Yasir Naqvi to praise Bill 28, or the All Families Are Equal Act, as "long overdue." But Tory MPPs questioned whether the Liberals and NDP had considered the far-reaching and possibly negative consequences of the 66-page bill, which passed second reading debate Monday.

Anal intercourse section of Criminal Code to be repealed: Legislation

The Liberal government will introduce legislation Tuesday to repeal a Criminal Code provision on anal intercourse that critics and courts say is unconstitutional and discriminates against gay and bisexual men.

"A lot of Canadians think that when Pierre Trudeau said 'the state had no business in the bedrooms of the nation' back in the '60s, that that meant this law was repealed," said Douglas Elliott, a Toronto-based lawyer and longtime gay rights activist.

"But in fact, all they did was create an exemption - an exemption that has always discriminated against gay men."

Trudeau gvmt: We'll fund groups with opposing views - if they're pro-abortion

Status of Women Minister Patricia Hajdu has just indicated it is open to funding women's advocacy groups from a diversity of perspectives - as long as they are all pro-abortion.

Hajdu said in an interview that, "I think that's a very clear indication of our government's willingness to hear from sometimes opposing voices - people that push us towards more progressive policy, people that are not afraid to criticize the government or criticize our approaches."

But when asked if this openness to "opposing" perspectives extended to those of pro-life women, she beat a hasty retreat. "The work still has to happen within values and evidence and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, so what we want at Status of Women is to empower women and to ensure the protection of women's right to choose," she said. "So, it would have to still fall within the realm of feminism."
