LifeSiteNews.com reports on the intolerance of the Student Society of McGill University in Canada who are apparently unable to tolerate the free speech of pro-life campus club.
Report opens up with:
"A controversial pro-life presentation hosted by McGill University's pro-life club Choose Life was chanted down by protesters last night. Police were called to the scene and, after repeated requests for civility, two were arrested.
The talk, entitled 'Echoes of the Holocaust' was given by Jose Ruba of the Canadian Centre for Bioethical Reform. The talk draws a parallel between past atrocities, such as the Holocaust, and abortion.
Prior to the event, the Student Society of McGill University (SSMU) passed a motion by a vote of 25-2-2 to censure the event and 'demand' that the university administration intervene to cancel it. The society, further, resolved that if Choose Life chose to continue with the event, the group would be ineligible for funding for the remainder of its existence.
Deputy Provost (Student Life and Learning) Morton Mendelson stated that he would not cancel the event, however, asserting the group's right to debate the issue.
As Ruba began his presentation, about 20 students, including members of SSMU, began protesting, chanting, and singing children's songs such as Old MacDonald and the hokey pokey. They bombarded the stage, blocked the screen, and one protester even grabbed at Ruba's written materials, before being stopped by campus security.
The police arrived and eventually warned the protesters that they would be taken away by force if they did not get off the stage. Two resisted and were arrested, while others joined the audience and continued to heckle Ruba after police had left, until the designated time had run out and Choose Life ended the event.
Ruba told LifeSiteNews that he was able to present about half an hour of his presentation, but there was no moment where he was able to speak clearly...."
