Update on York Abortion Debate Debacle


The Crusty Curmudgeon has a good write up here

From an e-mail received from Sheepcat:
York University became the latest Canadian institution of higher learning to attempt to squelch the pro-life point of view when its student federation abruptly cancelled a scheduled Feb. 28 debate on abortion, claiming that the pro-life movement contributes to an “environment of intimidation” against women.

It so joined other Canadian schools that have taken actions such as refusing accreditation to pro-life student groups on their campuses. However, the latest news is that York University administration has apparently stepped in to overrule the student federation and has rescheduled the debate for Wednesday, March 19 from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.
Puff says: Well, well, well, now if only they would stop students from harrassing CF recruiters when they come on campus.
