Toronto's Ryerson University student union has double standards when approving clubs.
Many pro-choice groups have been approved, but this pro-life group was denied.
Marissa Semkiw talks with Carter Grant, the vice-president of Students for Life at Ryerson. He tells her the criteria under which his group was denied official recognition:
The Ryerson Students' Union officially "opposes … groups, meetings, or events that promote misogynist views towards woman and ideologies that promote gender inequity, challenges women’s right to bodily autonomy, or justifies sexual assault."
Of course, sexual assault is a crime, while choosing not to abort -- or simply meeting to talk about that option -- is not.
Yet the Students' Union's policies seem to equate a peaceful pro-life group with some kind of imaginary, horrific (and unthinkable) "campus rape club."
