Maybe it's just me, but

doesn't this sound an awful lot like religious interference in government? I mean, SC Justice Beverley McLachlin is a government appointee, and these "42 Christian Groups" are trying to have her removed from her job. No, I don't think it's just me. I think it's a pretty clear case of religious interests butting into government in a way that -- who knows? -- might even put their funding or tax-exempt status in jeopardy if they're not extremely careful.

But never mind that. Have a look at what the Canada Family Action Coalition's Brian Rushfeldt had to say about it all:

"Brian Rushfeldt, head of the Calgary-based Canada Family Action Coalition, said McLachlin's role in the selection process of the honour, which was given to the 85-year-old Morgentaler in July amid much controversy, could influence cases involving reproductive rights that appear before the courts." (emphasis mine)
Cases involving reproductive rights that appear before the courts? Why might something like that happen? Maybe if Bill C-484 was passed?

Keep talking, you rotten douchebags. We are sooooo onto you.
