Quebec Labour Union affirms its support for Development and Peace

Socialist Surf is Up at Big Blue Wave

Quebec supporters of Development and Peace have set up a blog to fight back against the charges that they fund groups that support abortion.

And their blog reports that the Montreal Central Committee of the CSN, a Quebec labour union, has voted to affirm its support of Development and Peace and encourages its members to sign the petition to that end.

Their interest in this is that they want to combat “the extreme right”.

As if the internal affairs of the Catholic Church are any of their business.

Was it really a good idea for these D & P supporters to get the approval of a hardcore pro-abort union?

The fact that they thought it was a good idea shows that they do not get it. They do not get it at all.

They think that the dismemberment of unborn children is no big deal. They wouldn’t seek the approval of a white supremacist group, or a pro-torture group, or any number of groups that violate human rights.

But getting the approval of a group that supports the violation of the rights of unborn children: no problem!

Yeah, that’ll bolster their credibility with faithful Catholics. Not.

Look, either you support fetal rights as human rights, or you don’t.You can’t treat fetal rights as inferior to that of everyone else’s.



As I reported yesterday, a Quebec Labour Union– the CSN of Metropolitan Montreal– has come out in defense of Development and Peace.

The union says that Development and Peace has been attacked by “anti-choice” groups.

Well, shouldn’t Development and Peace be considered “anti-choice”?

How is it that a union that opposes human rights for unborn children feels comfortable in defending Development and Peace?

It sounds like Development and Peace is not committed to the rights of unborn children.

How is this compatible with Catholic teaching?

Canadian bishops: you are known by the company you keep. If you want Development and Peace, your baby, to be known as a Catholic organization, then it should act like one. It should be standing up for the unborn explicitly.

And if it’s not, then it makes us wonder how serious the bishops are in upholding the right to life.
