Two pieces of news stand out this week. The first is the allocation of $1.4 million to "pro-choice" (pro-abortion) groups in Quebec by Minister Martine Biron, responsible for the status of women. This is an admission of concern on their part, as they aim to counter the "disinformation" of groups like Quebec Life Coalition, who don't hesitate to speak frankly to the public about abortion, what it is and its consequences for individuals and society.
The second piece of news is that the federal government has decided to wait a while longer before allowing euthanasia for the mentally ill. It's good news that they've decided to slow down their destructive rush to decriminalize assisted suicide, but they're nonetheless showing a great willingness to implement this terrible measure.
Finally, our Students for Life Montreal event was a resounding success. Thanks to our main organizer, Brian Jenkins, for all his hard work!
