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.

North Carolina Pro-Lifers Sue City After Being Arrested for Prayer Outside of Abortion Clinic
There were only four of them.
A group of North Carolina pro-life activists are suing the city of Greensboro, North Carolina for arresting them as they prayed outside an abortion center in the city. The activists, who belonged to the group Love Life, were arrested in accordance with the city’s coronavirus and social distancing guidelines for the Chinese coronavirus.
The activists were arrested last week for violating ‘stay at home’ orders. Merely four of them- no great crowd in which coronavirus would be likely present- were praying outside an abortion center called A Woman’s choice. The Greensboro Police tried repeatedly to get the activists to leave the scene voluntarily before taking them into custody. A police press release on the incident describes four men being charged with violating Greensboro’s Stay at Home ordinance and obstructing a peace officer.
Seven pro-life activists who arrived to protest the abortion center the following Monday were arrested by the Greensboro Police as well, demonstrating a willingness to continually arrest those who engage in the protest of the facility.
A lawsuit regarding the matter has been filed by the Thomas More Society, accusing the Greensboro Police Department of violating the pro-life demonstrators’ First Amendment rights. Another pro-life activist in Michigan is also filing a lawsuit against Michigan’s Democratic governor for his arrest while safely protesting an abortion center in Detroit alone.
If municipalities such as Greenboro want to enforce social distancing and stay at home rules, they need to realize that wide-ranging exceptions need to be made for people to participate in certain religious and political ceremonies. There is no excuse for arresting people for gathering outside in a crowd of four, especially when it’s to express their most valued moral and spiritual principles.
