    Default Oppression is Freedom at Canadian College

    Well isn't this lovely? There's a motion at Carleton University in Canada to prevent pro-life groups from using certain university resoruces to hold meetings, recieve funds, ect, becuase some are saying they are 'discriminatory against women'.

    McIntyre said she received complaints after Lifeline organized an academic debate on whether or not elective abortion should be made illegal.

    [These women] were upset the debate was happening on campus in a space that they thought they were safe and protected, and that respected their rights and freedoms, said McIntyre.
    Goodness gracious! Dissenting opinions on a college campus! To preserve our freedoms we'd better shut up those who disagree!

    Politics, as they say, is a brutal buisness. This is a case study in using an elected position for personal reasons. Someone on that student council has an axe to grind against pro-lifers. Not to mention influence over the rest of the council. They used some women's complaints about an acedemic debate on the legality of abortion to muscle this Lifeline group out. Probably a political science or pre-law major. Cause that there is an f-ing master piece of Macheavellian art.

    Still Lifeline was stupid to try and have a debate about the legallity of abortion in an Ottawa university and expect no fallout. Especially when the student council made it's dislike of their groups existance clear (by denying them club status) they should have circled the wagons and held out for a more sympathetic student council next year.

    What they should have done is what they have to do now. Go on the down low, under ground, guerreilla.

    Basically everyone who attends Carleton is a moron, with a few exceptions. Pay this no mind. Besides, it's just a school club, anyway. There are pro-Jesus clubs in schools, but no pro-Satan ones. What gives there?

    The University of Edinburgh Students' Association has banned the Christian Union fom having meetings, I think, about something which I can't remember...

    It was theirs but to do or die.

    I remember the Warwick Uni CU got expelled from the SU because it kept sending e-mails to a homosexual, demanding that he repent.

    That's classy. I really don't see what the big deal is about banning religious groups from supposedly public institutions.

    Wow, imagine that! Nobody likes it when the rules don't support their particular point of view.

    Talk about frickin irony...
