Ontario Pressures Catholic Schools Over Abortion; Provincial Government Backpedals After Cardinal Collins Reaffirms Catholic System's Independence

Earlier in October, Ontario’s education minister told a reporter that Catholic schools in the province are not allowed to teach that abortion is wrong. However, now after Cardinal Collins of Toronto and also Catholic and evangelical groups spoke out against this presumption, the Ontario government has backed down from this position because of this resistance. This article also provides some general information about the religious situation in Ontario allowing such a move to be made by the Ontario government against the Catholic schools there.

Thank God the Cardinals are willing to stand firm.

Not wrong… seriously… what’s it going to take for people to realize that murder is murder, regardless of age or developmental state.
