How to debate the rape exception on the streets

Things we hear on the streets

By Justina Van Maren

He was a short man, I was just as tall if not taller than he was. He was strolling down the sidewalk, his hands stuffed into the pockets of his black coat. And then he saw us with our signs, and he stopped. He examined my sign and I reached out, offering a pamphlet. He took it, glanced inside, and when he looked up he offered me a pitying smile.

“You don’t have to do this you know,” he said patronizingly. “It’s okay if you just go home.”

“Thank-you, sir,” I replied, “but I’m here because I find it important to be here.”

He sighed and shook his head. “No, you really don’t mean that. In fact, you don’t really know what you’re doing here at all.”

UVic tramples the rights of students

By Cameron Cote

Having recently received the BC Supreme Court decision involving myself, together with the BC Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) versus the University of Victoria (UVic) and the University of Victoria Students' Society (UVSS) that stated UVic is not subject to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms when it comes to which groups they decide to allow to share their message, I've been asked a few times now if it is exciting to be involved with such a prominent and essential court case. For some reason they are surprised when I say I'm not excited at all.

Not enough time?

By Justina Van Maren

It’s the New Year! And I know, I’m a little bit late with this announcement. I have an excuse, though. After all, the holiday celebrations just ended last weekend and then I was thrown into a new, exciting semester at university. With all the new courses, a new schedule, and new goals brought into being through rashly made new year’s resolutions, I’m almost too busy trying to figure out how everything is going to work to think about anything else, including something like abortion. Almost.

“The Giver”: Understanding our Duty to Share the Truth

By Emily Ryznar

This Christmas, one of my favourite gifts was a copy of the movie, The Giver. As a child, I read the book by Lois Lowry, and I was intrigued by the mysteries of a world without colour or family or love. However, it was only after working for a summer doing pro-life activism that I came to appreciate the lessons that are found in the story.

File 2991

The Giver is set in a post-apocalyptic world where envy has been eradicated by “sameness.” Everyone is equal. Everyone obeys The Rules. Everyone has a place. Nobody makes choices, because the Elders believe that “when humans are given choices, they make the wrong choice. Every single time.”
