TORONTO, Oct 4 /CNW/ - Four arrests took place today at Carleton University after students, who belong to a pro-life group called "Carleton Lifeline", tried to set up their pro-life display. The University had offered them a room and a display table but their photos were not allowed in the quadrangle where they would be the most visible.
"The truth about the killing of children in their mothers' wombs is once again being hidden in a back room, while the reality of what happens in every abortion continues daily", said Jim Hughes, National President of Campaign Life Coalition (CLC). "Truth is the first casualty in every war and in this war on the unborn the truth is being suppressed."
"Universities which have always prided themselves as being institutions of free thought have now become facilities where only the most liberal thoughts are allowed to be presented," said Mr. Hughes.
CLC asks the public to contact the dean of the University and demand that the students be released and that their display be given the same respect as other topics at the University.
