Pro-Aborts Don't Believe In Freedom Of Speech

From the stomping grounds of St. John's NL comes this report about a rather rowdy call in show.

The one in question is the CBC CrossTalk segment at noon hour in North America's oldest city, St. John's and Patrick Hanlon, newly installed President of the Right to Life Association of Newfoundland and Labrador (NRTLA) was in the hotseat.

Patrick is a young man in his early twenties, totally committed to the doctrine of the sanctity of life and to the protection of the Unborn. Blogger Geoff Meeker writes:
I’ve heard many rowdy listener call-in shows, but none as boisterous as this. In fact, the racket it raised is still echoing within the corridors of the CBC.


Well-known activist Peg Norman was the first caller. And she went ballistic. I don’t know that I have ever heard such vitriol expressed on radio. You can hear the entire program by going to the
Radio Noon Crosstalk archive. The content is so intense that it is disturbing at times, though Norman’s call off the top was probably the most shocking.
The talk show host, John Furlong, summed up the affair well:
I think one of the talkback callers that we had on said it best: ‘Your first pro-choice caller frightened me. Obviously, she does not believe in free speech. In her world, only her right to speak is sacred.’ That is so true.
Read Meeker's posting and consider writing to the CBC to express your support for host John Furlong and his program. Get the form here.
