The Prime Minister of Canada was challenged on the issue of free speech at a town hall in Hamilton, Ontario, and would not commit to the principle.
In the context of a debate about abortion, a student reportedly told Justin Trudeau that “if you’re pro-life then you are ridiculed and insulted, but if you’re pro-choice then you are praised,” a fact that rings true in the United States, too, especially on university campuses.
“And I just want to know if this [free speech] is important to you,” the student pressed.
Women have fought for generations for the right to control their own bodies, to be able to choose for themselves what to do with their bodies. When those beliefs lead to actions aimed to restrict a women’s right on what to do with her body, that’s where we draw the line.
In other words, Trudeau “draws the line” of free speech – which is equivalent to free thought and quintessential to freedom itself – at pro-lifers. Make no mistake. The next step here is to ban pro-lifers from expressing pro-life opinions in public. The Canadian Prime Minister feels virtuous virtuous about this. He gets to pretend to be the great protector of women while millions infant, the most innocent among us, are slaughtered.
Trudeau went further, insulting pro-lifers with a comment similar in nature to president Barack H. Obama’s “bitter clinger” knock on conservatives.
“An organization that has the explicit purpose of restricting women’s rights by removing rights to abortion, the right for women to control their own bodies, is not in line with where we are as a government and quite frankly where we are as a society,” he said.
And there you have it: pro-lifers are no longer in step with society. They are backwards, regressive and non-liberal.
The official position of the Canadian government is to mock and deride pro-life citizens and threaten their free expression.

Florida Bill Requiring Parental Consent for Abortion Set to Become Law
Parents now have the right to make medical decisions for their children.
The Florida legislature has passed a new law requiring the consent of parents for minors to receive abortions. The bill passed the state house on Friday and is headed to the desk of Gov. Ron DeSantis. DeSantis has expressed support for the legislation and is expected to sign it, establishing Senate Bill 404 as law.
The legislation will require parents to give their express consent to medical personnel in order for minors to receive abortions.
Parental consent is generally required for minors to do almost anything in American society, such as going on a field trip, receiving treatment from a dentist, or even staying out late on the weekend. It’s somewhat unexplainable that parental consent isn’t legally required for minors to have abortions in most American states.
The bill passed overwhelmingly in the Florida House after first passing the state senate, with a resounding final count of 75-43 in favor.
Planned Parenthood blasted the legislation, taking aim at the notion that parents be given the right to make consequential medical decisions affecting their children.
Unfortunately, SB 404/HB 265 requiring parental consent for minors to receive an abortion passed the Florida House of Representatives yesterday afternoon. We need to call our legislators to hold them accountable for passing this unconstitutional bill!https://t.co/1UlUGsgkkG

It’s one of several policy advancements for the pro-life movement in recent years during Donald Trump’s presidency, and perhaps one of the most significant considering Florida’s status as one of the biggest states in the country
The pro-life legislation adds another conservative feather to the policy cap of Florida’s DeSantis, a Trump supporter who has established a reputation for a willingness and an ability to advance popular conservative legislation into law in Florida. DeSantis is currently in a battle with elements of the state legislature that seek to water down a statewide e-Verify proposal.
