Ontario Education Minister: Catholic schools can’t teach abortion is wrong - that’s ‘misogyny’ |

Laurel Broten said that arguments against legal abortion are “misogynistic” and therefore should be banned under Ontario’s Bill 13, a law that bans bullying. The education minister said that “we’re very clear with the passage of Bill 13 that Catholic teachings cannot be taught in our schools that violates human rights and which brings a lack of acceptance to participation in schools.” 

As predicted... here come's the onslaught forcing the Catholic system to change its moral teachings to accommodate current mores. 

It's interesting how an Act that was supposed to be geared towards fostering 'equality' is being used to enforce an anti-Catholic, anti-life agenda. Sad... but interesting. Even I didn't expect the Ontario government to go this far. Evidently I was mistaken.

  1. I don't necessarily agree with the minister's statement but quite frankly Catholic Schools need to go private (as many have) if they want no government interference. Unlike non religious private schools parents would be able to claim a tax credit for part of the tuition.

    1. Rationalist: It sure seems as if 'full funding' has turned out to be a disaster for Catholics ability to teach its values in the Separate School System. I fear that you're correct though. Going private might be the only way to preserve any Catholicity at all.

  2. I agree with Bob (R1) Father Tim. Full funding has compromised our values. However, I think that Bill 13 must be followed by private schools as well.

    Regardless, Ms. Broten speaks with forked tongue. Misogyny is a cute quaint word, that ignorant people like to throw around. It makes one sound smart; though there are exceptions, and Ms. Broten is one of them.

    Misogyny is the hatred or dislike of women or girls. In that many abortions are sex selective, and guess which sex they are selecting for the kill, abortion is more than 50% misogynistic. Lying to women about the long term effects of abortion would seem to be misogynistic as well.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
