The We Want the Debate Campaign is a project of Alliance for Life Ontario. Many times in the past, but especially this year, we have heard some politicians say that “abortion is settled in Canada” or “no one wants a debate on abortion – it is a dead issue”. We have also been told by our current Prime Minister that neither our elected representatives nor indeed the people of Canada would be allowed to debate abortion during his term. We believe that is tyranny, not democracy.
A committee was set up in March 2011, that has endeavoured to develop an educational approach for the Canadian people which we believe highlights our concern that this may be the beginning of the end of democracy in our great country. Our rights and freedoms are the precious gifts of a democratic society and we believe that over the course of the next few months many Canadians will come to see that the paradigm in this country must change. Whatever concern we wish to have publicly debated should not be refused by those to whom we have entrusted this nation. In our case we want an open, honest and transparent debate on abortion. You may want something entirely different.
We represent Ontarians of all backgrounds who believe that it is time to fight for democracy and demand an end to suppression of certain views and censorship of others. Check out the website at WeWantTheDebate.ca
