Can’t Teach Abortion is Wrong
On Wednesday, Ontario’s Minister of Education rocked Ontario taxpayers, sending a shockwave across Canada, and even beyond our borders, with an announcement that can only be described as “totalitarian.”
Laurel Broten, Minister of Education told reporters that under its new anti-bullying law, Bill 13, The Accepting Schools Act, Catholic schools would no longer be permitted to teach that abortion is wrong.
A transcript of the remarks from Premier McGuinty’s office to LifeSiteNews quoted Minister Broten:
“We do not allow and we’re very clear with the passage of Bill 13 that Catholic teachings cannot be taught in our schools that violates human rights and which brings a lack of acceptance to participation in schools,” she said.
“I don’t think that there is a contrast or a conflict between choosing a Catholic education for your children and supporting a woman’s right to choose,” she added.
Asked for clarification she said again: “Bill 13 has in it a clear indication of ensuring that our schools are safe, accepting places for all our students. That includes of LGBTQ students. That includes young girls in our school. Bill 13 is about tackling misogyny, taking away a woman’s right to choose could arguably be one of the most misogynistic actions that one could take.”..
Already Toronto Cardinal Thomas Collins has affirmed that Catholic schools are protected in their pro-life teaching by Section 93 of the Canadian Constitution.

Editor's Note: Progressives despise the thought that the State does not grant rights to its "subjects." This is why the concept of Natural Law, embedded in and inseparable from the US Constitution, is so incredibly important. It is also why the US Constitution is one that limits and not empowers, government. Progressives hate that fact as well, which is why they insist that the US Constitution is a "living document" and the Declaration of Independence means nothing more than the listed grievances.
