VANCOUVER, Apr 26 ( – A pro-abortion leader in Canada has backed out of a public debate with pro-lifer Scott Klusendorf and, in doing so, has revealed the extreme intolerance of the pro-choice to kill movement. Joyce Arthur, of the Pro-Choice Action Network, has written an essay on why she backed out of the debate, and stated: “the right to abortion is not a debatable issue.”

She goes so far as to ask: “Would a Jew debate with a Nazi?” Incredibly, in the same essay Arthur, an activist for abortion, evolution, atheism and wildlife, calls pro-lifers “intolerant” and says “the pro-choice position is inherently democratic.” The abortion advocacy movement has consistently proven to be disdainful of democracy, using the courts (rather than legislatures), inner cabinet dictatorship over elected members, lies and media distortion campaigns to get its way – no matter what the public thinks.

Steve Jalsevac, Toronto director of Campaign Life Coalition noted that using Arthur’s own terminology, the true analogy of an abortion advocate debating a pro-lifer would be a Nazi debating a protector of the Jews.
