Canadian University Bans Pro-life Club after Farcical Vote
KELOWNA, November 28, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) â€“ A group of pro-life students at the Okanagan campus of the University of British Columbia, has lost a vote for recognition as a club. The groupâ€™s leader, Marlon Bartram, told LifeSiteNews.com that only those opposed to the club were allowed to post flyers. The pro-abortion campus Womenâ€™s Centre, as an officially recognized body, distributed flyers urging students to attend the meeting and vote against club status for the group. The Studentâ€™s Union had refused to ratify the club, even though the group had followed the normal application procedure deciding instead to defer the decision to a vote by the student body. Today, about 75 to 80 students, of a total campus student body of about 5000, attended the meeting and voted about two thirds against the ratification of the club.
