Alissa Golob on the Pro-Life movement in Canada and Andrew Scheer

Rebel Staff

Andrew Scheer winning the Conservative Leadership race was a victory for Canadian Pro-Lifers. I interviewed Alissa Golob, founder of the pro-life website itstartsrightnow.ca, about the future of the movement. 

WATCH my interview to hear Alissa's thoughts on how pro-life legislation can be advanced, and how Andrew Scheer reflects these values. 

Canada is one of the only democratic nations with no law limiting abortion, so there is a great deal of work ahead for pro-lifers.

Andrew Stephenson that is not what the ruling was and the supreme court does not make laws.

That shitstorm barreling down the pike at us – whether you can see it or not – is a result of our collective actions…as humans, Westerners, Canadians or us living in the BC interior. We have earned it…collectively.
“… 900 abortions every day in the US…”
I read that number and feel the very fabric of my soul tear.
Yeah, we’ve earned it.

Peter, it’s hard to say what their true thoughts/ feelings are, they are purposeful in posting comments that are callous and they mistakenly claim the moral high ground.
commented 2017-06-01 18:29:57 -0400
Tammie, it would be interesting to know if they are as morally callus as they pretend to be or if it is all an act, and working in an abortion clinic would certainly accomplish that. I know I could not.

Peter Netterville, the people you identified, who consistently post the same BS have given themselves permission to ignore the reality and focus on meaningless statements.
I think they should volunteer in an abortion clinic, specifically handling the aborted humans deemed as “medical waste” & cleaning the equipment; instruments; floor etc….
Then, they should volunteer to sit in on counselling sessions with women who regret having an abortion; or women who are infertile following an abortion….

Tammie, I was going to respond to Andrew, but you have done better than I can.

It truly saddens me that people like Andrew, Kelly Weber and Jack Carter have such a casual disregard for life that Andrew can say without guilt, “I for one think it’s excellent that Canada is so proactive in protecting women’s rights”.

The issue always clocked in this “woman’s rights” narrative by the pro-murder crowd. But in reality, the issue never has been about a woman’s rights. It is about the baby’s rights.

So what of the rights of the baby?

The baby has none, but the baby is the very person who should have the most rights because the baby is the weakest and most vulnerable in our society, not to mention the future of our society.

Abortion is creepy. It is sick. It is murder.

Andrew Stephenson, I have been reading your posts for sometime now on this topic.
My take away is that you are very lucky your mother allowed you to remain in her womb at every stage of your prenatal development through live birth. If she had doubts or felt inconvenienced, she would have been legally permitted to terminate your existence…at any point!

Your post to Peter Netterville:

Canada does not even have a term limit, only three nations on the planet do not have a term limit; China, North Korean and Canada. What illustrious company we keep , completely in line with the communist dictator lovers in Canada (i.e. the socialist freaks) "

You responded with:
“This argument is bizarre, are you trying for some sort of guilt-by-association type thing? Or are you suggesting that Canada should succumb to international peer pressure? I for one think it’s excellent that Canada is so proactive in protecting women’s rights.”

Your glib post is bizarre. You seem to have missed the point altogether, I’m not surprised you did. The majority of nations have set limits, and, the fact that the last abortion law was struck down, doesn’t make setting limits a matter not worth addressing. You keep saying it’s “excellent that Canada is so proactive in protecting women’s rights”. Please explain what is so “excellent” about having no limits, what is so “excellent” about failed abortions? If you don’t know what a failed abortion is, research this on an empty stomach!

Jimmy said, "The abortion debate is settled … "

By what law do you declare in your “I-am-not-to-be-questioned” voice that the abortion debate is over? What law has declared that it is illegal for anyone to raise the abortion issue?"

I think you’re asking about the Supreme Court ruling, which defines the law and tells us that the state has no right to interfere in an individual’s right to control their own body.

Jimmy, there you go again, declaring the debate is over.

A bill can be introduced at any time which will require a vote. That bill can be anything on any portion of the debate issue. "

Sure, you can table a bill. Such a bill would run afoul of the SCoC ruling declaring such things unconstitutional, so it would be purely symbolic, but you can certainly try.

Me too, Peter. It made me cry and ask God for forgiveness for them and whoever supports this.

Carole, I got a few seconds into the video and could not watch it anymore. I wish I could un-see that.
commented 2017-06-01 15:26:32 -0400
Just looked at the video suggested by Keith Barnes. This is evil. I have never seen something so revolting. I had left my religion but it is now coming back in a rush. I pray God that those people find a little bit of compassion and respect for life. How can they expect anything good in their own lives after that?

Let me ask you, Kelly Weber.

When does life begin?
commented 2017-06-01 15:20:25 -0400
Kelly Weber asks, “what are your views on abortion?”

My views can be broken down into two categories: “What I would like to happen.” and “What might be possible to accomplish.”

- What I would like to happen is abortion made illegal because I believe life begins at conception.
However, since I am a realist (unlike the lefties who live is fantasy land.)
- What I would like to happen is a term limit of maximum 24 weeks, less weeks if possible.

Kelly said, “Do you actually think that a women can go to the doctors at 8-1/2 months pregnant and say she changed her mind and get an abortion?”

Legally she can, regardless of whether you think so or not. There is no law in Canada that restricts when the abortion can happen so long as it is before birth.

Kelly asked, “One last question, have you ever been or will you ever be pregnant?”

Meaningless question.

A video of Planned Parenthood employees was censored by a leftard judge. It showed employees laughing about their experiences where one had an eyeball fell on her lap, the other pulling a leg apart from the embryo. How sick you must be to get a late abortion or work in these clinics. Still, 900 abortions every day in the US.
commented 2017-06-01 14:42:57 -0400
Peter Nutterville, what are your views on abortion? Are you in favour of limits or do you want a total ban? Do you know that each province has their own limits on abortion? Do you actually think that a women can go to the doctors at 8-1/2 months pregnant and say she changed her mind and get an abortion? One last question, have you ever been or will you ever be pregnant?

The pro-murder babies group likes to equate the “Pro-Life” and “Pro-Choice” as opposing concepts, but they are not.

So the pro-life says “we want a term limit” and the pro-murder say “it is a woman’s choice”. The response does not fit. Sure, let the woman choose to murder the baby.

Tell me, Jimmy Know All, why do all the nations of the earth except three have a term limit? Are all those people wrong because you and your pro-murder friends say that the woman has the right to murder her baby?
commented 2017-06-01 14:16:45 -0400
Peter Netterville,

The debate is settled regarding pro-choice vs. pro-life. Pro-choice will always be the standard, but there is wiggle room regarding terms. That is what people mean when they say to you that the abortion debate has been settled.
commented 2017-06-01 14:04:01 -0400
Also, use the Lefty’s preference for ‘science based’ decisions as a weapon against them, because while that debate is still open, every Cdn will agree an 8 or 9 mo old is a ‘person’

Also, I’d argue it’s uncanny that women, who had to fight to be recognized as a ‘person’ would now like to force that fight onto ‘the most vulnerable’!!!
commented 2017-06-01 13:58:10 -0400
Billy – good suggestions for Scheer. Best defence is always a good offence!!

I think these pro-lifers should go on msm also, because it’s their audience that is ignorant of the subject. Stealing the phrase “most vulnerable” from them and labeling the Left heartless to their faces is the key to success!

Fathers should get a say, like Sweden does. Why kill an innocent child if one of the parents wants to love and cherish it???

Billy said, “His only argument when Justin says “CPC wants to take away women’s rights” is the fact that Trudeau is attacking women’s rights by being pro-Sharia.”

Good point. I hadn’t though of that angle.
commented 2017-06-01 13:51:37 -0400
Jimmy continues to say, “The best you can hope for are term limits that you still probably won’t agree with.”

This statement indicates that you know it is possible to reopen the debate.

Oh, and by the way Jimmy, it is you who is assuming I would expect abortion to be made illegal. I know that all I can hope for is a term limit.

Canada does not even have a term limit, only three nations on the planet do not have a term limit; China, North Korean and Canada. What illustrious company we keep , completely in line with the communist dictator lovers in Canada (i.e. the socialist freaks)

When pro-life subjects comes up, Scheer needs to ALWAYS mention Trudeau is anti-women.
His only argument when Justin says “CPC wants to take away women’s rights” is the fact that Trudeau is attacking women’s rights by being pro-Sharia.
When talking pro-life, also propose laws making FGM a serious criminal child abuse offense. When Justin opposes this, ask him why he won’t make mutilating female children a serious crime?
When talking pro-life, also propose laws banning the practice of Sharia in Canada. When Justin opposes this, ask him why he won’t make women’s rights a Canadian value?
Fight fire with fire.
commented 2017-06-01 12:39:32 -0400
Peter Netterville,

The abortion debate is settled and by Scheer’s own words, he is not going to rock the boat on that. The best you can hope for are term limits that you still probably won’t agree with.
commented 2017-06-01 12:29:18 -0400
I find that those who keep bellowing loudly and often that the “abortion issue is closed” are the same ones who are the most fearful that their current legal right to murder babies will be taken away from them.

How people can desire to murder babies is well beyond my comprehension. In my opinion, murdering the most innocent in our society … babies … is evil incarnate.
