Human Rights Tribunals for students

Reasonable people have reasonable concerns about abortion-and, I might add, about pro-life arguments.

But you don’t find reasonable people at student unions, for the most part. And you certainly don’t find them at “women’s centres.” (That’s a place on campus the vast majority of women just don’t go.)

Yet these people have the power to ban debates, as we’re seeing at York right now. They are the quickest to take offence; their voices are the loudest.

The reasonable students are studying, playing sports and doing whatever it is students do.

These centres represent a fringe, barricade mentality: They are trapped in a 1960s ideology.

I’m glad Ms. Kelly Holloway of the York University Graduate Students Assocation banned the abortion debate on campus: It highlights the strange alternate universe she inhabits for all to see. And I thank her for the national, front-page coverage on the abortion debate that never was.

Perhaps soon we can all move on from the notion that pro-lifers are the extreme ones here.

I would say that "reasonable people" would be horrified if the "investigative media" showed the slaughtered VICTIMS of abortion to the public. As for these students who want to censor pro-life students they know the truth is in the pictures, therefore they must be suppressed. Let's stop kidding ourseves that we can be warm and fuzzy on this issue. We are killing the innocents. To see this Heinous Atrocity that is called "choice" go to:

And it is not just the subject of pro-life which gets banned on our campuses. This has been building up for a long time to the extent that most campuses are little different from mini police states where any student or faculty expressing views contrary to the agenda-driven fascists facing discipline of one kind or another. It is also these same thugs who sabotage invited guest speakers who represent different views.

Well put, Ms. Morozek.
Not even permitted to discuss whether a woman OUGHT to have an abortion or not, according to choice.
Proves that "choice" on campus, is actually PC decree...

York U is full of fascists. Free speech is too far out of their 'comfort zone'.
