And yet another blow to Catholic education.

From Vox Cantoris.

Catholic schools may no longer be able to teach that abortion is wrong, if the members of the provincial government have their way.

Broten (minister responsible for women's issues) also said publicly-funded Catholic schools in Ontario should not be teaching students that abortion is wrong because the anti-bullying law prohibits misogyny.

"Taking away a woman's right to choose could arguably be considered one of the most misogynistic actions that one could take," she said.

"I don't think there is a conflict between choosing Catholic education for your children and supporting a woman's right to choose."
But she does see a conflict in telling students that they do indeed have a choice- other than abortion- and that choices come with consequences.

The anti bullying law was pushed through last year, and one of the immediate results was that representatives of a so called Gay-Straight alliance came to my daughter's school and began telling her and her fellow students that Catholicism was a load of garbage while the teachers looked on.  Apparently, telling women that abortion kills babies is now to be considered "bullying".  Apparently, using the force of the government to tell Catholics what they can and cannot teach, what they can and cannot believe, is not bullying.  It is not bullying when intimidation is applied to the right sort of people.

The article I link to in the beginning is interesting.  The leaders of all three parties have stated that they will not open the abortion issue, and support a woman's right to choose, but then argue over who is not pro abortion enough.  Steinman once said that if men had babies, abortion would be a sacrament.  I would like to inform women:  you have made it one.  It cannot be debated, or brought up, or mentioned as anything other than an unalloyed good.  Congratulations, you have become men.
