Anti-Choice in Our Schools

New school year, new challenges and questions. For parents and students alike.

In Ontario, the Fraud government is trying to axe the "new" sex ed curriculum and is running into more trouble than it expected.

In Calgary, the school board has severed ties with a fake clinic that taught sex ed in PUBLIC schools.

A couple of other school boards in Alberta have done the same. @ABProchoice tweeted a thread of other anti-choice organizations that offer sex ed. I used Threadreader (very easy, even for TechnoDork) to compile the info more permanently.

The information comes from Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada's study of Fake Clinics' (aka Crisis Pregnancy Centres) websites updated. (The study was in 2016.)

I plan to get to work on compiling similar info for the rest of Canada, but if any reader knows of anti-choice groups teaching sex ed in a public school board or school, please let us know.

Lawless Abortion: No, We Do Not Need a Law



We Need a Law, the astroturf wing of Dominionist group Association for Reformed Political Action*, has put up its first billboard in Dartmouth, NS.

No doubt to the group's delight, it is causing controversy.

Pattison Outdoor, which rents the space, says it has received complaints, but will not take it down unless instructed to by Ad Standards.

So, friends of truth and choice, we need to complain. Ad Standards has made this relatively easy.

Go here and read the instructions. There is a handy online form.

For this ad, I think the section of The Code that applies is 1(a) under "Accuracy and Clarity."
In assessing the truthfulness and accuracy of a message, advertising claim or representation under Clause 1 of the Code the concern is not with the intent of the sender or precise legality of the presentation. Rather the focus is on the message, claim or representation as received or perceived, i.e. the general impression conveyed by the advertisement.

(a) Advertisements must not contain, or directly or by implication make, inaccurate, deceptive or otherwise misleading claims, statements, illustrations or representations.
Section 14 "Unacceptable Depictions and Portrayals may also apply and has been successfully used against anti-choice advertising in the past.

Getting back to "Accuracy and Clarity," while technically accurate, the ad has two misleading implications:

1. That there is no regulation of abortion. This is not true. Like all other medical procedures, abortion is regulated by the practitioners, in this case the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada. Here are the guidelines.

2. That patients and providers are doing something wrong or illegal. Also not true. Abortion was decriminalized in 1988. It is a common medical procedure, fully covered by Canada's universal health insurance.

On the second point, Section 14(c) and (d) may apply.
(c) demean, denigrate or disparage one or more identifiable persons, group of persons, firms, organizations, industrial or commercial activities, professions, entities, products or services, or attempt to bring it or them into public contempt or ridicule;
(d) undermine human dignity; or display obvious indifference to, or encourage, gratuitously and without merit, conduct or attitudes that offend the standards of public decency prevailing among a significant segment of the population.

Let's do this. We Need a Law (Like a Hole in the Head) plans to put up 70 of these billboards across Canada.

Complain. Complaining works.

(Note: The online form takes a while to load. It's not loading for me at all, so I'm going to email. info @ adstandards.com)

ADDED: ARCC also has a guide to lodging complaints with Ad Standards.


*I've written about ARPA a lot. It is a political action group devoted to imposing Christian theocracy.

The mission of ARPA Canada is to educate, equip, and encourage Reformed Christians to political action and to bring a biblical perspective to our civil authorities.
They lobby the hell out of government, meddling in abortion matters, assisted dying, freedom of religion, and other shit that is none of its business.

It is not a benign influence on civic debate.

Canada Summer Jobs: The Round-Up (for now)

I'm still laughing about this.

Visitors to DJ! over the past two or so weeks may have been bored to tears by noticed my rather compulsive compilations of apparently religious outfits that appear on the Canada Summer Jobs list of successful employers, i.e. groups that signed the evil abortion clause.

My point, of course, was to demonstrate that many, many religious organizations understood perfectly well what the government was trying to accomplish with the attestation despite the shrieking and spin from Conservatives, media, and the Church. The point was made by Michael Coren who had access to "official documents."
Official documents show that of the 2,728 faith-based organizations that applied for summer jobs funding this year, 58 per cent were willing to sign the attestation. Of the 115 Anglican groups that applied, only 10 refused so sign, and only two of the 199 United Church-affiliated organizations refused. Even more startling, none of the 89 Jewish or 130 Muslim groups withheld their support. Which leaves evangelical groups and, of course, Roman Catholics.

Opposition to abortion has become an absolute of conservative Catholic opinion even though, it should be noted, Canadian Catholics in general do not share this view and progressive Catholics have a far more nuanced approach.

Also, there is far more ambiguity in the Catholic response to the program than we have been led to believe. Contrary to what many critics of the policy have claimed, of the 365 Catholic organizations applying for funding, the overwhelming majority signed on, with less than a third (32 per cent) refusing to do so.
Indeed, the Catholic website, LieShite did their own compilation and came up with the number "157 identifiably Catholic groups" who checked the box.
“We didn’t start this controversy,” [Cardinal Thomas] Collins told Vatican Radio in February. “We’re trying to be cooperative, but we cannot check off the box.”

But despite this, at least 157 identifiably Catholic groups have done just that, according to the database of Canada Summer Job grant recipients for 2018, available online for some weeks.

Of these, the majority — 107, or 68 percent — are parishes, but charities, school boards, religious orders, hospitals, a day care, and care homes are also listed.
And even Jesuits!

LifeShite links to a PDF documenting who's keeping the dough, who's returning it, and who didn't bother to respond to LieShite's demand for explanations.

The site says that 30 groups intend to return the money. But sadly, not before:
They have now disappeared, but not, unfortunately, before a pro-abortion blogger gleefully displayed a screenshot of their names, with the derisive comment: “Make up you [sic] mind, guys.”

Of course that was me here. The typo was gratuitous.

The same day LieShite broke the news that 157 Catholic groups wanted the dough more than the martyrgasm, it also published a story about people "knowingly" ticking the box.

So, it looks like the evil-doers are getting spanked in public. I wonder if we'll ever know if they do actually return the money.

I've checked out the whole country now and I must say that we have an impressive array of do-gooders and entrepreneurs out there. As Coren says, not only Catholics, but other Christians, Jews, and Muslims will hire students with government help this summer.

In my perusal, I found Buddhists in Thornhill, atheists (!) in Lanark, and Knights of Columbus (!!!) in Miramichi and Sydney-Victoria. Coren doesn't mention a large number of Sikh groups, mostly in BC and Ontario.

Remember, this all started with Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada volunteers examining Canada Revenue charitable tax filings then matching the "government" funding up with Canada Summer Jobs.

Here are the info sheets. Funny, but absolutely nobody has picked up on the fact that ARCC also identified dozens of groups who did not properly report government funding. There is also a searchable PDF of which anti-choice groups got CSJ money, in which ridings, from which MPs and parties.

Finally, I'm happy to report that only one (maybe two) identified anti-choice group -- a fake clinic in Kitchener -- got approved this year. (The maybe second one is a maternity home partnered with a fake clinic in Calgary.

A friend had noted anti-LGBTQ groups that got CSJ money previously. They were happy to report that only three such groups succeeded this year, including Echo Lake Bible Camp in Saskatchewan.

So. The attestation is working as intended. We are pleased.

Quebec Religious Groups That Will Get Canada Summer Jobs Grants

And for the grande finale, Quebec. My French stinks, but I had some help in recognizing key words (thank you, deBeauxOs). Nonetheless the website search was critical. I almost included an orchard.

The usual reminders on process: I was going by name only, quite literally. All (known) religious groups got tagged. Others that sounded "churchy" got checked. Caps and quotation marks from original document. Where "no website" is noted I could not find a website for that particular group. (Obviously there is a website for "United Church of Canada" but sometimes I couldn't find one specific to that riding.) Where a link is not provided, it is elsewhere in this blogpost. I haven't done the hyperlink thing, because there are too many. Sorry, you'll have to copy and paste.

Asterisks indicate a Catholic organization. And hoo-boy are there a lot of them!

New Brunswick Religious Groups That Will Get Canada Summer Jobs Grants

A couple of days ago Michael Coren published an article with the numbers on religious applicants to the Canada Summer Jobs program.

There were a lot and more than half were accepted.

So that kinda puts the lie on media, Church, and Conservative screeching about anti-religion/anti-Christian bias.

Official documents show that of the 2,728 faith-based organizations that applied for summer jobs funding this year, 58 per cent were willing to sign the attestation. Of the 115 Anglican groups that applied, only 10 refused so sign, and only two of the 199 United Church-affiliated organizations refused. Even more startling, none of the 89 Jewish or 130 Muslim groups withheld their support. Which leaves evangelical groups and, of course, Roman Catholics.

Opposition to abortion has become an absolute of conservative Catholic opinion even though, it should be noted, Canadian Catholics in general do not share this view and progressive Catholics have a far more nuanced approach.

Also, there is far more ambiguity in the Catholic response to the program than we have been led to believe. Contrary to what many critics of the policy have claimed, of the 365 Catholic organizations applying for funding, the overwhelming majority signed on, with less than a third (32 per cent) refusing to do so. When we break down those figures, a clear pattern emerges.

In all of Quebec, only nine Catholic groups refused to sign and a massive 108 agreed to the attestation. In Ontario, 63 groups refused to sign, with 32 agreeing to do so, and the vast majority of dissenters, 52, in Toronto.

That's a lot a Catholics.

Coren doesn't mention New Brunswick but there are many Catholic organizations here too. The Knights of Columbus again!

So, here are the New Brunswick religious groups who applied for and will get summer job grants.

The usual reminders on process: I was going by name only, quite literally. All (known) religious groups got tagged. Others that sounded "churchy" got checked. Caps and quotation marks from original document. Where "no website" is noted I could not find a website for that particular group. (Obviously there is a website for "United Church of Canada" but sometimes I couldn't find one specific to that riding.) Where a link is not provided, it is elsewhere in this blogpost. I haven't done the hyperlink thing, because there are too many. Sorry, you'll have to copy and paste.

Asterisks indicate a Catholic organization.

Most of this was compiled by a diligent volunteer who wishes to remain anonymous. And of course thanks to the Data Monster again.

Nova Scotia Religious Groups That Will Get Canada Summer Jobs Grants

Here are the religious groups in Nova Scotia that did not succumb to the spin and bad-faith arguments on the Canada Summer Jobs attestation or "abortion clause."

I point out again that the attestation could as well be called the "sexuality/gender/gender identification clause" but why bother? The media and the "faith community" (meaning mostly the Catholic Church) chose to see it purely as ABORTION!!!!!

In fact, there are more Catholic groups in this lot that didn't get the memo, including the Knights of Columbus.



The usual reminders on process: I was going by name only, quite literally. All (known) religious groups got tagged. Others that sounded "churchy" got checked. Caps and quotation marks from original document. Where "no website" is noted I could not find a website for that particular group. (Obviously there is a website for "United Church of Canada" but sometimes I couldn't find one specific to that riding.) Where a link is not provided, it is elsewhere in this blogpost. I haven't done the hyperlink thing, because there are too many. Sorry, you'll have to copy and paste.

And in a tiny bit of good news, some media outlets have acknowledged -- albeit at the end of otherwise shrieeeeeky articles -- that indeed religious groups have applied and been funded.

The Employment and Social Development Canada website shows hundreds of churches among the employers who were approved for funding this year, along with faith-based camps.

Manitoba Religious Groups That Will Get Canada Summer Jobs Funding

Chugging along here. Manitoba here. Not as many different groups as BC or Ontario, but still diverse.

Also, still no identified anti-choice groups have slipped by. The Canada Summer Jobs attestation seems to be working as intended.

Reminders: I was going by name only, quite literally. All (known) religious groups got tagged. Others that sounded "churchy" got checked. Caps and quotation marks from original document. Where "no website" is noted I could not find a website for that particular group. (Obviously there is a website for "United Church of Canada" but sometimes I couldn't find one specific to that riding.) Where a link is not provided, it is elsewhere in this blogpost. Asterisks indicate a Catholic organization. I haven't done the hyperlink thing, because there are too many. Sorry, you'll have to copy and paste.

Huge thanks to the Data Monster who ran the list through a magical device that did most of the work.
