It was “Choice Joyce”, aka Pro-choice leader Joyce Arthur who first coined the phrase “Let No Fetus Defeat Us“, which really described the bottom line in all of this.
Why ban debates on abortion? Why try to outlaw pro-life groups on university campuses? Why support the ban and censorship of abortion-related information and statistics? Why declare “….that the advocacy work of anti-choice groups is in direct violation of international human rights codes, and the rights of women under our constitution, and it flies in the face of Canada’s current law and policy around abortion.” (See: http://www.prochoiceactionnetwork-canada.org/articles/uvic-speech.shtml)?
Desperate to legitimize their support for the removal of democratic rights for those who oppose abortion, the aging pro-choice movement really just wants the fetus to go away. It will ignore scientific reality that shows the humanity of the unborn child, all in the name of its’ pro-choice rhetoric. It will support draconian rules of censorship, in order to stifle informational debate.
So, the real reason they shut down the debates, yelling and screaming so no one will hear and why they support censorship laws, is best summed up by Joyce Arthur herself: “Let No Fetus Defeat Us!”
