There’s a new campaign launching today at We Want the Debate.ca.
I’ll let you guess what we might be debating. There’s t-shirts, if you want to wear one, I’m sure you can email and ask at that web site. I think this is a clever campaign because it peaks attention and because truly, debate is stifled in this country. Let freedom reign!
GUELPH, Ontario, Oct. 18, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ — A group within the educational pro-life movement is throwing down the gauntlet on what it claims is the current censorship and hostility toward any attempt to debate abortion. Known as the We Want the Debate Campaign, it challenges anyone wishing to defend abortion to an open, transparent and fair debate in front of the people of Ontario.
Over the next four months, the campaign will conduct a series of activities to highlight current contradictions and misconceptions that warp the public’s view of abortion. It will expose a systematic distortion by the overwhelming majority of the media of the facts of abortion. It will also denounce the Federal Government’s disregard of the majority of Canadian’s wish to allow a discussion on the future of abortion in our country.
“We believe that the suppression of any debate in a democratic society is unacceptable,” said Jakki Jeffs, director of the We Want the Debate Campaign. “We demand that the current censorship of the debate around abortion be ended, and that an open and informed discussion be held in public. The stifling of the debate over the past decades has prevented all Canadians from having access to the facts, and has left the issue completely ignored. In the coming months we will be addressing this lack of balance, and on the 7th of February 2012 we hope those who wish to defend abortion will join us in finally debating this before the people of Ontario.”by
