Fr. Gravel’s grovelling in front of the abortion gods

In an eight minute speech in the House of Commons yesterday, which was supposed to address the Unborn Victims of Crime legislation, Gravel instead used almost the entire time to portray himself as being against abortion.  In doing so he claimed that he was misrepresented by, which he said instigated the complaints to his religious superiors.  From the Official Hansard: “I get the feeling that comments made by two people, John-Henry Weston in and Mr. Jalzevac, incited this taking up of arms.” (Of course both Steve’s and my last names were spelled incorrectly, but there we are in the official Hansard nonetheless.) 

Gravel protested in Parliament that his remarks opposing the Unborn Victims of Crime bill were misrepresented. “I think this is in order because my bishop and the apostolic nunciature in Ottawa have received a number of e-mails,” he said.  “I want to clarify and qualify a few things. First, I am against abortion. I regard human life as sacred and abortion as always being a tragedy in our society. We must do everything in our power, while showing respect for those involved, to limit the number of abortions and promote life.” (


Dear Father Gravel,

I was one of those critics who wrote to the Nunciature. You can read my letter here.

You are a disgrace to the Catholic faith and you are disgrace to Canada.

Your silly little parsing of being personally pro-life but publicly pro-abort does not wash with anyone.

Grow up and have the integrity to choose your side.  You aren’t fooling anyone but yourself.

Just leave.

One thought on “Fr. Gravel’s grovelling in front of the abortion gods


    There are striking parallels between what happened to the unwanted in the Third Reich and what’s happening to the unwanted both before and after birth today!

    It is the same kind of mentality. We don’t respect human life and we dehumanize it and then we find the technology to get rid of it !

    The Nazis dehumanized their victims by calling them subhuman, non-human, parasites, animals, objects, and non-persons. The same terminology dominates today’s pro-abortion semanticists.

    Do you realize that the Nazis “technically” did not break the “LAW” in the Holocaust ? They passed over 400 “LAWS “leading up to the final solution ! Each defendant at Nuremberg invoked the ”LAW” to justify their involvement in the Holocaust. They said they were not responsible. “WHAT IS LEGAL IS MORAL”, does this remind you of what we are doing in Canada, this a frightening slogan used to justify all kinds of atrocities through history.

    Legality was used to exterminate natives in Australia, Africa, North and South America, India, the killing of Jews and the destruction of the unwanted unborn and born dead babies today. Legality was used to justify slavery and the slave trade.

    The main term used by the pro-abortion propagandist is the term “CHOICE”. The right to choose.
    The main term used by the Nazis to cover up their killing was “SELECTION”. The right to select.
    It was the doctors who were making selections in the Nazis death camps.
    It is the doctors today, in conjunction with pregnant women, who are making “choices” in the abortion chambers.
    The right to select in the past and the right to choose today represents the evil power to destroy those who cannot defend themselves.

    The whole reason that Nazi Germany came to be is that some took it upon themselves to choose who would live and who would die.
