Re: March of Living no location for teens, May 15.
As a pro-life advocate, I participated within the March for Everyday living anti-abortion rally on Parliament Hill and also the march by means of the streets of downtown Ottawa on March 13. I was not astonished to see such big numbers of young individuals at the event.
The participation of these young people was organized by different Catholic school boards, as is their prerogative. Field trips are widespread occurrences in public schools, too.
What secularists and public school taxpayers are likely to forget is the fact that Catholics pay the exact same provincial taxes to assistance universities in general and have the constitutional right in Ontario not only to exist, but to direct their municipal property taxes to service Catholic educational institutions if they so wish.
Catholic universities are faith-based educational institutions. They may be centered on the teachings of Jesus Christ, the gospels, and also the church he founded. Religious instruction is a part of the curriculum that's taught and Christian morality is section of that curriculum.
Children are taught that everyday living is sacred from conception to normal death. Abortion is regarded as to get the taking of a human life at its most vulnerable state. The Catholic faith is not the only religion that's anti-abortion. It joins Muslims, Jews along with other Christian faiths in condemning it.
Parents have the best to raise their young people in their faith and to permit them to physical exercise their democratic right to protest peacefully as practically 12,500 individuals did. What is problematic is always that pro-choice abortion supporters believe that their voice is the only real one to become heard, that abortion is usually a done deal and that no one is allowed to speak on behalf in the unborn kid in this or any nation.
