Abstract: This monthly pro-life publication is designed to keep subscribers up to date on genetic engineering, euthanasia, mandatory sterilization, abortion, capital punishment, pro-life feminism and constructive solutions of world and human problems.
This issue reports on the November 18 day of lobby of 300 pro life representatives with Ministers of Parliament in Ottawa.
A feature article, entitled "To Parliament," points out that since the consensus of opinion from members of all political parties was that the issue of abortion would not be debated in Parliament in the near future, probably not until after the next election, the Badgeley Commission has appeared to be basically a stalling tactic to delay discussion of the present law. The pro-life lobby asked that the word "health" be deleted from Section 251 of the Criminal code so that the law would read, "therapeutic abortions may be performed if continuation of pregnancy would or would be likely to endanger life of the mother."
Another article on media influence notes the single-mindedness of purpose of the Zero Population Growth movement which regularly publishes a "Media Target List" of upcoming opportunities to plug their pro-abortion position on entertainment and public affairs shows. Book reviewer Keith Cassidy notes that the central concern of the psychiatrist author, Wendell Watters, in his book, Compulsory Parenthood, the Truth about Abortion, is population limitation. Accordingly, abortion is seen to be indispensable to that goal, and therefore, is in need of being made universally available. Cassidy also observes that even many intelligent pro-abortionists find the book unconvincing.
