Letter to the Faithful from Bishop Fabbro Regarding Bill C-7 (Medical Assistance in Dying)
Attached is a letter (English | French) from Bishop Fabbro regarding Bill C-7, which is currently before the House of Commons, asking all parishioners to write their MP to express their opposition to this Bill.
Pro-Choice London and the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada are currently lobbying London City Council to pass restrictions on the use of abortion victim photography and the delivery of pro-life flyers. They're calling for London to do everything from adopting the arbitrary non-government Ad Standards Code to restrict pro-life speech across the city, to classifying pro-life speech as hate speech, or to pass by-laws restricting flyer delivery, etc. We believe that some London city councillors may be proposing a by-law at an upcoming committee meeting on November 4.
London Against Abortion, London Right to Life, Western Lifeline and CCBR have been working to counter this lobbying with a campaign in support of pro-life freedom of expression. We've put together this online petition and are hoping to get as many pro-lifers to sign it as possible, ideally in advance of the Nov 4 committee meeting: https://www.change.org/prolifelondon
You do not have to be in London to sign the petition — pro-choicers from all across Canada have been signing Pro-Choice London's petition for the City of London to adopt the Canadian Code of Ad Standards, or this petition from a London city councillor asking for similar measures. Like the success in Windsor combating the bubble zone lobbying with duelling petitions, we hope to show that opposition to pro-life speech is not universal, but controversial — so that London City Council will think twice about passing unconstitutional restrictions on pro-life freedom of expression.
While their focus is on abortion victim photography, we know that the Canadian Code of Ad Standards has been used to censor even the most innocuous pro-life speech without any imagery whatsoever. We know that a threat to pro-life speech anywhere is a threat to pro-life speech everywhere, as the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada systematically tries to get a by-law passed in one city and then to lobby for it in another.
We would greatly appreciate your support for London Right to Life and the efforts of the pro-life movement in London.
