HAMILTON, Ontario (LifeSiteNews) – Canada’s top pro-life group Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) has praised today’s U.S Supreme Court’s ruling overturning Roe v. Wade as a “victory” for life
CLC’s National President added it won’t be long before life will be “winning” in Canada, too.
“We thank God and heartily applaud this decision,” said Jeff Gunnarson in a press release.
“Science is clearly on the side of life. Courts are now finally beginning to catch up with science.”
Gunnarson noted that today’s U.S Supreme Court decision is a “victory for pre-born babies, for the pro-life movement, and for truth.”
“This victory signifies a loosening of the iron grip that the pro-abortion movement has held on America for decades,” noted Gunnarson.
Gunnarson said that when life is “winning in America,” it’s only a “matter of time before life will be winning here in Canada too.”
“This win is a huge encouragement for pro-life Canadians to work even harder to bring legal protection to children in the womb from conception onward,” he added.
In a monumental decision in favor of life this morning, the United States Supreme Court issued its long-anticipated ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, overturning Roe v. Wade in a 5-4 decision ( 6-3 on siding with Dobbs).
The decision upheld Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban and effectively ends the nearly 50-year-old Roe v. Wade ruling that imposed abortion on demand on all 50 states.
“The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision,” ruled the court.
Laws concerning abortion are now the sole responsibility of each U.S. state.
This time last year, Justin Trudeau and his media allies were at the forefront of falsely accusing Catholic institutions of having buried Indigenous children in mass graves at various residential schools across Canada.
There was and is no credible evidence to support these wild accusations, but many Canadians are still unaware of the facts.
SIGN to demand an apology from Justin Trudeau for promoting the "mass grave" smear
The anger generated by the media at home and abroad saw over twenty Canadian churches burned, and extensive damage done to many more, but the record has never been set straight in what amounts to a disinformation campaign.
Terry Glavin at the National Post recently wrote a masterful piece that may go down in history as the definitive “debunking” of the assertions about the mass graves that never were.
Glavin points out that “nothing new was added to the public record” concerning the history of residential schools in Canada.
“The legacy of the schools had already been exhaustively explored in the testimony of hundreds of elders and a series of inquiries, public hearings, criminal cases, settlements and federal investigations going back decades. Most important of these efforts were the widely publicized undertakings of the 2008-2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC), and the content of its voluminous findings,” Glavin wrote.
“…[N]ot a single mass grave was discovered in Canada last year,” he added.
“The several sites of unmarked graves that captured international headlines were either already-known cemeteries, or they remain sites of speculation even now, unverified as genuine grave sites.”
“Not a single child” accounted for during the extensively researched commission “was located in any of these places,” Glavin underscored.
“In none of these places were any human remains unearthed.”
SIGN and SHARE the petition calling on Justin Trudeau to set the record straight.
Even Trudeau's kneeling at what was reported upon as a just-discovered residential school burial ground was a lie - it was actually a well-known Catholic cemetery, but the media didn't let these details get in the way of reinforcing their narrative.
Trudeau also called on Pope Francis to come to Canada and apologize for what had happened, as outlets like Reuters, the New York Times and scores more told the world that “nearly 1000 bodies” had been found in two mass graves.
Those online articles were quietly edited from "mass graves" to "unmarked graves", but we still have the Twitter posts from major outlets like Reuters to prove the staggering level of misinformation.
SIGN: Justin Trudeau must tell Canadians the truth - there were no mass graves
According to an extensive investigation by Professor Emeritus Jacques Rouillard from the Université de Montréal: “The ‘discovery’ was first reported last May 27 (2021) by Tk’emlúps te secwépemc First Nation Chief Rosanne Casimir after an anthropologist, Sarah Beaulieu, used ground-penetrating radar in a search for the remains of children alleged by some to be buried there.”
“Her preliminary report is actually based on depressions and abnormalities in the soil of an apple orchard near the school – not on exhumed remains.”
Professor Rouillard opined that the unverifiable narrative of what could have amounted to child-murder has led to the false assertion of genocide, an assertion without any supporting evidence.
“By never pointing out that it is only a matter of speculation or potentiality, and that no remains have yet been found, governments and the media are simply granting credence to what is really a thesis: the thesis of the ‘disappearance’ of children from residential schools,” Rouillard wrote.
“And all of this is based only on soil abnormalities that could easily be caused by root movements, as the anthropologist herself cautioned in the July 15 press conference.”
The vast majority of Canadians have been misled by the media and Mr. Trudeau, believing the most incredible smears imaginable, leading to scores of attacks on churches around the country.
It's time we heard the truth.
Please sign the petition today.
We are also cc'ing Canada's Catholic bishops on this petition - they must also demand the record be corrected, lest Canadians continue believing the mainstream media's disinformation.

Youth Co-coordinator for CLC Josie Luetke said that today’s ruling for life in the U.S. shows that the time for “justice for pre-born babies has finally arrived.
“This is a day we have long waited for,” said Luetke.
The Canadian federal government under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau government made abortion front and center in many of its communications after the leaked draft opinion from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito went public.
Today, Trudeau said the overturning of Roe v. wade was “horrific.”
“No government, politician, or man should tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body. I want women in Canada to know that we will always stand up for your right to choose,” tweeted Trudeau.

In May, on the day before thousands of Canadians defended life in the nation’s capital at the 2022 March for Life, Trudeau’s government announced millions of dollars in funding to pro-abortion groups.
Abortion was decriminalized in Canada in 1969 when then Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau (Justin Trudeau’s father) passed a heavily criticized Omnibus Bill, which amended the criminal code to allow abortions to be done in hospitals under permissive circumstances.
This law remained in effect until the Supreme Court of Canada struck down the 1969 law as unconstitutional in the 1988 Morgentaler decision. The law was removed on a technicality, however. The court ruled that it violated a woman’s Charter right to security of the person since the law could not be applied equally across the country.
The court encouraged the Canadian Parliament to come up with replacement abortion legislation. This effort failed when then Prime Minister Brian Mulroney’s draft law was dismissed in a Senate tie vote. The result of this is that, since then, abortion is permitted in Canada through all nine months of pregnancy.
