U of C GAP 2007
Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) exhibit on March 19 and 20. Just like last year, onlookers stopped by and engaged GAP volunteers in friendly debate about abortion. Most of the pro-choice arguments were the usual cliches: what about in cases of rape, what about overpopulation and climate change, who will take care of these unwanted children, etc. Many people refused to acknowledge that unborn human beings are legal persons, entitled to full protection under the law. This is what it has come to in our day and age — comparisons have to be made to the Holocaust, to slavery, and to modern genocide (e.g. Rwanda), in order to stir public debate about Canada's unrestricted access to abortion in every trimester. Unlike in the U.S., abortion in Canada is taxpayer-funded. Such a deal. And we dare to sing "God keep our land glorious and free" in our national anthem? What for? So we can murder more babies?
