Ontario’s Education Minister Earns An “F”
Dave Killion — October 23, 2012
Earlier this month, Ontario’s Minister of Education declared her belief that pro-life education is, literally, a crime –
“(Laurel) Broten 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.”
So, if you happen to be one of those people who believe that abortion is murder, and you teach that to a student, the Honourable (sic) Mrs. Broten thinks you are a criminal. And if teaching that abortion-is-murder is a crime for teachers, then it is most certainly a crime for anyone else. Including Broten’s political opponents. Presumably, she would like to see all such people ‘stopped’. Peacefully, if possible, but violently (I suspect) if necessary.
Well, Mrs. Broten should be careful what she wishes for. One day, the tide may turn, and the law may be that anyone who teaches that women have a right to choose is guilty of advocating murder. And on that day, I suspect Mrs. Broten will cry out for the right to free speech that she is so eager to deny everyone else.
