Media fails to call out bigotry of Edmonton March for Life counter-protesters

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

 

I just came back from the annual March for Life in Edmonton.

It takes place every year in May in cities all across Canada and is the largest pro-life demonstration you’ve probably never heard about.

The mainstream media doesn’t give equal amounts of coverage to the peaceful pro-life, pro-family March for Life as they do to the vulgar, profane and sometimes violent Women’s March despite similar sizes.

Rain and cold weather aside, 3,000 Albertans turned up on the steps of the legislature to let the political establishment know that it’s still okay to be pro-life.

Watch as I share the reactions of the pro-life movement to Rachel Notley's free speech crackdowns, and to hear why I couldn't be happier that six pro-choice science fiction fans dressed as handmaidens from the Handmaid's Tale showed up to counter-protest.

What I saw at the March for Life was a peaceful, tolerant movement that’s being lied about by their own government, and I'm so glad I was there to tell the other side of the story.

Andrew, so let’s call them “Pro-Death for those who choose it”. I think that’s more honest.

Don’t be surprised when this gets revisited Jack.

Think of who is arriving en masse into Canada….as their numbers continue to grow so will their resolve to see this openly debated. The left will be in a conundrum…they have been apologists for Islam for so long without understanding what it really means.

I prefer to call them pro death, not pro choice. To call them pro choice only hides what they’re doing. "

Pro-choice means pro choice. As in, you can choose whether to keep a pregnancy or terminate it.

“Pro death” is misleading, in that it implies that that choice is being removed and abortions become encouraged and/or mandatory.

Reduce abortion to two choices, (a) keep it, or (b) terminate it.
1) Pro-life: Forces you to pick option (a).
2) Pro-choice: Lets you pick (a) or (b).
3) Pro-death: Forces you to pick (b).

Calling it pro-death, or anti-life, is basically a false dichotomy, or a strawman. You’re arguing against something that isn’t occurring. It’s valid to say anti-choice vs pro-choice, since option 2 allows choice and option 1 (or 3!) doesn’t. Pro-life vs “anti life” or pro-death? Actually posits option 1 vs option 3, which isn’t what happens. Option 2 isn’t pro-death, or pro-life, it’s a position of official neutrality.

Space Moose said, “And it is not murder. It is only murder after a kid is born.”

Can you prove that statement? If you cannot prove that, then how do you know?

Abortion kills twice. It kills the body of the baby and it kills the conscience of the mother.

Come on, are we going to go down the road of who should pay for what? And it is not murder. It is only murder after a kid is born.

Besides, my body, my right. And if I get an abortion, are you going to call the cops on me because I committed murder?

For some reason women can be forced to wear a Burka by a man.

Tom Bradly please say the same to those who want Sharia Law. OR is that different?

Tammie i bet Tom is all for them having handouts.
commented 2018-05-12 02:37:50 -0400
Tom Bradly those women should be more responsible , we FORCE men to pay for kids they do not want. So spare us the BS!

Space Moose a right means it has to be paid for by others, that is BS! Try saying Legal instead, why should others have to pay for this? What about their rights?

I could only imagine the reation those ‘handmaidens’ would have if one of God’s Holy Spirit filled handmaidens were to go into intercesory prayer over their very souls. I know plenty of God fearing compassionate prayer warrior women that really know how to get ahold of God, even if it is but the hem of His garment so to speak. The Holy fire sure does fall and rest upon them in a marvalous way.

What those heathen conviently forget to mention is that it was the Pharoh himself that proclaimed what the final plauge should be and so it was that all the first born males regardless of age and species was slain that night save those that obeyed God and applied the blood of a lamb on the door frame of there homes. Also they forget that 80 years prior it was also the Pharoh that ordered all male children were to be killed by the sword then later drowned in the Nile as an attempt to wipe out the Israelites, who also just so happened to have been their slaves (and not the dentured kind) for 430 years. So yeah God met out Holy justice for His people and not only freed them from slavery but made sure they got 430 years of back pay from the Egyptian when the Egyptians just handed over all there gold, silver and precious jewlery as the comenced their exodus from Egypt.

Remember when sex’s primary purpose was for new life, now its all about pleasure. Pregnancy is now considered a disease.
________________________________________________________________________________

Someone once said that in today’s world we want sex without procreation and procreation without sex.
It’s a strange, strange world we live in Master Jack.

Unrelated but that opening line is so true. More so now than then.

I knew Andrew Scheer would be useless as the leader of the opposition when I went to hear him speak before he was nominated. Before I went and heard him actually talk I had high hopes for him, but now it is plain to see he’s not going to fight for freedom of speech or anything else that Canadians hold dear. Including our children.

A very nice surprise for Edmonton Pro-Lifers. Thank You Sheila.

Space Moose – you do!!

WOW!! You’d think the mohammedans would be 100% is support of this pro-life/anti abortion movement. But that wouldn’t fit Trudeau’s narrative, would it???

Great report Sheila.
Will there be a court challenge re: bubble zone in Alberta?

Tom, are you saying you are fine with large immigrant families who receive government welfare and never contribute a dime via employment taxation? Two parents sitting at home collecting with both hands?

If your against abortion, don’t get one. That’s what pro choice is. You have a choice. Were as the prolife want to force women to have babies. My neighbor is the poster child for abortion. Six kids from 5 different fathers. Never worked a day in her life. 19 year old daughter pregnant with her second child, 16 year old daughter pregnant with her first. Gotta keep the cheques rolling in.
