Carleton Lifeline Status Revoked



Carleton Lifeline told by Student Union it must change its Constitution

 OTTAWA – The Carleton University Student Association (CUSA) has notified Carleton Lifeline, Carleton University’s pro-life student group, that the club will not be given club status or funding unless the group renounces its pro-life beliefs in a revised and resubmitted Club Constitution.

This comes on the heels of the arrest of several Carleton Lifeline club members’ arrest last month when they attempted to set up a pro-life exhibit on campus.

There are two major issues at hand here,” stated Ruth Lobo, president of Carleton Lifeline. “First, is that we are being discriminated against because of our political and ideological values. Second, CUSA has taken our club status away in a way that has violated their own procedural policies regarding re-certification and decertification. We have been a club for 3 years, so why now?”

The club was notified of the denial of status via e-mail from Khaldoon A. Bushnaq, Vice-President of Internal Affairs for CUSA. The email states that Carleton Lifeline’s club constitution is in violation of CUSA’s Discrimination on Campus Policy, which expressly states that CUSA supports “a woman’s right to choose” and will not support any student group that holds a different viewpoint. Carleton Lifeline’s constitution reads “Carleton Lifeline believes in the equal rights of the unborn and firmly believes that abortion is a moral and legal wrong, not a constitutional right. Therefore, Carleton Lifeline shall work to promote the legal protection of the unborn and their basic human rights to life.”

“Our constitution has not changed since our club was first certified in 2007,” said James Shaw, vice-president of Carleton Lifeline. “We have always received funding and status whenever we applied, and were always re-certified as a club from year to year.” Shaw adds that even if other students disagree with their views, a student’s association must respect the diversity of opinion within their own membership.

On November 15, 2010, Carleton Lifeline’s legal counsel wrote CUSA pointing out that their Discrimination on Campus Policy is in violation of CUSA’s own constitution and in violation of a number of Carleton University policies. He also pointed out that the manner in which CUSA denied Carleton Lifeline certification was not in line with CUSA’s own policies and procedures.

“We simply want the same status as other clubs without viewpoint discrimination,” stated club member Nicholas Mcleod. “This decision clearly violates CUSA’s own procedures on certification and re-certification.  As a student, I am forced to give money to CUSA when I pay my tuition which means that I am paying CUSA to discriminate against me. Our group is going to challenge this.”

  1. I add my expression of disbelief and indignation at the treatment CUSA has given to its fellow students at Carleton Lifeline, Carleton University’s pro-life student group, as if to be positive concerning all human life were somehow, by some crazy logic, an evil and criminal position to hold !
    The arguments for continuing official standing for the Carleton Lifeline group are self evident on any grounds one might chose.
    Denying them status and a voice, says a lot about the censors, who are determined to deny diversity and free expression. A new totalitarianism, twenty-first century style, now lumbers across the Carleton campus as student union and administration conspire to enforce their one-sided oppressive ideology.
    Is it a vain hope that the ideal of a University might be revived, starting with the Students` Union?

  2. Carleton University and our Education Establishments teach love without meaning ( Kinsey Sex Education), and murder without guilt (Abortion).
    It does not matter what the Nicolaitans may say, a vote for a traditionalist politician is never wasted, for Bills are passed or rejected by majority vote in our Legislatures and Parliament and become Canadian law. Please consider this.

    Abortion kills living and growing Innocent Human Beings in the warmth of Their Mothers Wombs. These Children have done nothing wrong and deserve our protection not Capital Punishment. Why Are We Killing these In Canada citizens, even though Dr.Bernard Nathanson has made films titled, “Silent Scream,” and “Eclipse Of Reason,” and proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that abortion is the murder of Innocence?

    Dilation and curettage is commonly called D&C. The physician dilates the cervix with a series of instruments to allow the insertion of a curette, a loop-shaped knife, into the womb. The instrument is used to scrape the placenta from the uterus and then cut the baby apart. The pieces are then pulled through the cervix. The body must then be reassembled by an attending nurse to make sure no parts remain in the womb to cause infection.

    Suction aspiration. The mouth of the cervix is dilated. A hollow tube with a knife-like edged tip is inserted into the womb. A suction force 28 times stronger than a vacuum cleaner tears the baby and the placenta to pieces. These pieces are sucked into a container.

    Saline injection also known as salt-poisoning. A strong salt solution is injected through the mother’s abdominal wall into the amniotic fluid surrounding the baby. The baby then breathes and swallows the solution causing internal poisoning and burning. In “a few hours”, the unborn baby dies from salt poisoning, dehydration, and hemorrhaging. The mother goes into labor and delivers a dead or dying baby.

    Prostaglandin involves the use of prostaglandin hormones that are injected into the womb or released in a vaginal suppository. This causes the uterus to contract and deliver the baby prematurely. A saline solution is sometimes injected first, killing the child before birth, in order to make the procedure less distressful for the mother and medical staff.

    Dilation and evacuation is commonly called a D&E. The doctor dilates the mother’s cervix and uses forceps to reach into the uterus. He grasps the arms and legs, dismembers the body, and crushes the skull to remove it. The placenta and the smaller pieces of the body are removed by suction and sharp curetting.

    Hysterotomy, similar to a Caesarean section. This procedure involves opening the womb surgically and removing the baby to end the infants life.

    We ought to put and end to this holocaust. This is what happens in a country where the politically correct Darwinian Humanist Education establishments Institutionalize Atheism, because we all go to schools and universities. I call this atheism by establishment. When will this murder of innocence end?

    Canada is the country that presented The Order Of Canada, to abortion king, Henry Morgentaler. The United Nations is spreading abortion, sodomy, and Kinsey Sex Education all over the Globe with the liberal popular media, and liberal minded public’s blessing. What have you become Canada.

    After The Second World War , the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal indicted ten Nazi leaders for encouraging and compelling abortions, which our Justices and society then considered crimes against humanity.

    Our education establishments teach love without meaning ( Kinsey Sex Education), and murder without guilt (Abortion). What have you become Citizens, do you recall Hitler’s words inscribed over one of the gas ovens in Auschwitz, ” I want to raise a generation of young people devoid of conscience, imperious, relentless and cruel”? In a democracy the citizens are responsible for the laws of the land. Please elect traditionalist politicians ,and put an end to this evil in our land.
