TORONTO, Oct 29 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The historic Ontario legislative session which passed into law the right for practicing homosexuals to adopt children and be given all rights and privileges accorded to common-law spouses contained not one voice against the legislation.

QUEBEC, Oct 28 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In response to demands from famed abortionist Henry Morgentaler yesterday, the Quebec government has said that it is willing to provide “more free abortion-  related services at private clinics.

ONTARIO GOVERNMENT TRASHES DEMOCRACY

TORONTO, Oct 28 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Ontario government passed its legislation giving practicing homosexuals the same rights as common-law spouses yesterday after ramming it through the legislature only two days after it was introduced. Pro-family groups across the country reacted with horror as “the Tories completely sold out social conservatives,” to cite Peter Stock of the Canadian Family Action Coalition. Not only was public debate avoided by the hastened passage of the bill, but accountability to the Ontario public was abandoned when this revolutionary law was passed without a recorded vote.  For more see today’s LifeSite Special Report:  Ontario Government […]
