York U is working hard, even over summer break, to ban pro-life groups on campus.
Tanya scratches her head:
Gilary Massa, YFS vice-president external, defends the motion by saying that pro-life organizations seek to deny women of their basic human right to choose.
“Anti-choice groups come onto campuses and take away the right a woman has to her own body, to determine what she can do,” Massa said.
First, I always am skeptical of a body that insists on calling a pro-life organization “anti-choice.” It pretends abortion to be the only valid ‘choice.’ (Note to pro-abortionists: Choice and abortion are NOT synonyms.)
Second, no pro-life group can come on campus and take away a woman’s right to anything. It can, however, offer information that would not be available anywhere else. (That makes pro-abortionists like Massa sound pretty anti-choice.)
Third, I can’t seem to find abortion under the women’s rights section of Human Rights Commission website, though I did find all sorts of other good things. (When exactly did someone decide abortion was an actual right of Canadian women?)by
