Laws limiting fundamental freedom of protest at Ontario abortion clinics receive all-party support

All fundamentalisms have a totalitarian impulse, and secular fundamentalism is not immune. Canada has its share of secular fundamentalists infected with that impulse.

Much attention has been given to the face-covering law passed last week in Quebec. This week, Ontario will pass a law limiting protests against abortion that merits similar attention. In both cases, disproportionate measures are employed to limit freedoms, not to address a pressing public policy issue but as a form of official denunciation, backed by the fierce power of state coercion. One of the signs that totalitarian winds are blowing is when political dissent disappears, with the opposition parties in full cahoots with the government.

    Strange how the media and elites have been ranting constantly every day, about freedom of speech in regards to the muslim racist in the Maritimes. The student can rage about whites committing genocide and trash talk Canada, but when it comes to the freedom of speech against killing babies, the media takes the exact opposite view. I guess freedom speech only applies to those with “progressive” views.

    Soon you’ll be able to kill your mentally ill children.

      Why not do the same to the “Law Enforcement” enablers for this?

        Take your boner for “law enforcement” and shove it up your ass.

      Canadians are already pretty much there–anyone else recall this?:

      If you can frame it as a mercy killing, you can basically walk on murder charges of a 12-year-old!

      And that was 20+-years ago! Now? You could probably drive a bus-full of kids over a bridge and nobody would bat an eye…

    A society that refuses to protect the helpless amongst us is lost.

      I agree. Well said.

    • mrzee1

      I refuse to protect progressives just because they’re mentally defective.

  • People allow this.

    Where were the protests? The riots? The promises never to vote Liberal again?

    Pro-lifers should show up at any of the abortuaries they are forced to pay for and hand out pamphlets. They can wear niqabs if it makes things easier.

      I have been the prolife leader in my community for nearly 20 years. If all of the Christians (Protestants, Evangelicals, 7th Day Adventists, Catholics) simply surrounded these clinics in overwhelming numbers, this bubble law would burst. It’s not difficult. But it does take conviction, and In my experience all the conviction is on the side of the radical Leftists.

      • What you said.

        This needs to be treated like the tyrannical rubbish that it is.

        Cheers.

    Yet another day that Patrick Brown gives me a reason to not vote for him. Personally, I’m for abortion, especially for those lefties that should never be allowed to reproduce, but he just voted against free speech and forced his MPPs to do the same. I don’t care what he says, his actions speak far louder than any words about how he would govern this province and that is just more of the status quo.

        When did they call the election writ? WTF, you mean we have to put up with this shit till they actually go to the polls? TV, meet hockey stick.

    • BillyHW

      Patrick Brown is an abortion. Something that is unholy, and evil.

      • Chris

        That’s taking it a bit far. He’s just another vote whore is my point.

  • BillyHW

    As long as women vote, baby-killing will be legal and paid for with taxes confiscated from men.

      The irony is that it is men who reject any responsibility who are the main abortion supporters, yet abortion is considered a “feminist” issue. Personally I doubt one could return to the criminalisation of abortion nor do I think it imperative to do so. However, I most strongly object to state funded abortion at any term and for any reason whatsoever. It is selective surgery and the only one totally funded by the state, or in truth we the tax payers. Canada remains the only developed country with no restriction whatsoever on abortion, something we should be ashamed of.

      • Jane

        Well said. In my opinion, abortion without restrictions is a state sanctioned criminal act. Years ago – I used to be pro-choice. But then I read a book by Germaine Greer that changed my opinion. It was written in the mid-90’s, in which she declared that she had aborted 7 times. No doubt, she had many more abortions after the book was written. She didn’t use birth control – not because she couldn’t, but rather because she couldn’t be bothered to.

        After reading her book, I did a lot of research on the topic and discovered that it is quite common to use abortion as a method of birth control. I find that reckless, irresponsible, and immoral. Then further research disclosed that millions of babies are born alive due to botched abortions, and then just tossed in the garbage to die a slow death. Such a blatant disregard for life, speaks volumes about how morally bereft western society has become.

        Given the complete disregard for what happens surrounding abortion, it’s no surprise to me that western society rationalizes and makes excuses for Islam’s never ending acts of barbarism. Thanks to abortion, life is cheap in the west. Unless we can find some way to restore respect for life – the west will continue to rapidly spiral towards the black hole it has created for itself.

        • Alain

          Thank you for your excellent post on this topic.

          • Jane

            I really appreciate your kind remarks. But, it was your excellent post that got the ball rolling. So thank you very much for that.

            I don’t know about you, but I find it increasingly difficult to feel optimistic about the future. Everywhere I look there is rot – abortion; Islam’s barbarity being tolerated; little girls being groomed – while the authorities stand by and ignore their plight, because of political correctness; FGM; multi-million dollar payouts to terrorists; or the vile abuse of minor children regarding the fluid gender crap, etc. I constantly struggle with these issues, in an effort to find solutions. But, after years of futile struggling, I honestly don’t have a clue how to get our lives back on track. All I know, is that if we don’t find a way to restore sanity and morality, that the future will be bleak. I have no answers.

            BCF is a wonderful web site for disseminating the real news. While the venting is healthy, I wish we could discuss solutions too. But, few seem to want to do that. I don’t know if it’s because they have given up hope too, or because they are afraid of running into legal problems, because our governments are actively working against anyone who tries to stop this runaway train of the West’s demise.

            My husband and I often discuss what occurred during pre-war Nazi Germany. All the warnings were there. Many ordinary citizens did try to stop the Nazis, and met their demise. At least the allied forces rose up to fight the Nazis. Once again, all the warnings are there about Islam, and there isn’t a politician in the West – other than Geert Wilders, and a couple of others – who have the guts to take a stand and fight for our way of life. It seems like the west, is just going to allow itself to be destroyed for a myriad of insane reasons – political correctness; diversity, etc. Every single day, I ask why are our elites determined to destroy our way of life? Their actions don’t make any sense to me at all.

            Sorry for the rant.

    Rival vote whores can only play silly tripping games when almost all the oligarchs and rent seekers have no complaints about their access or treatment.
