Anniversary of Supreme Court decision striking down abortion law

Tue, 01/28/2020 - 19:00
Some Masses are scheduled to be said in various churches throughout the diocese in recollection of this day. A video will be shown on Tuesday, January 28, 7 p.m. at Our Lady of Czestochowa Parish, 301 Avenue Y South, Saskatoon. Please check the website  saskatoonlatinmass.com for confirmation. January 28, 1988, is the fateful day that the Supreme Court of Canada struck down section 251 of the Criminal Code which restricted women’s access to abortion. The 1969 law had made it illegal for a woman to obtain an abortion unless the pregnancy was health-threatening. This was said to be unconstitutional, conflicting with the Charter of Rights. Canada, then, joined the ranks of China and North Korea making us one of only three countries in the world that has ABSOLUTELY no law restricting abortion.The Supreme Court did NOT acknowledge a legal right to abortion, failed to resolve the matter further, and handed over to parliament the responsibility of creating and putting into place a new law. Most of the judges decided that federal authority was to provide security to the fetus with criminal law jurisdiction but failed to discuss how the fetus would be protected.  Let us pray for the protection of human life–against abortion, infanticide and euthanasia. Let us pray for those who have experienced these attacks on human life, or the ramifications thereof, that they be healed in every way.  And let us pray for our society, that we get some traction on this slippery slope and respect our God-given gift of LIFE!

Local and international resources for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity are available online, placing a particular emphasis on hospitality as a much-needed virtue in our search for Christian unity and calling all to a greater generosity to those in need. The Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and the Commission on Faith and Order of the World Council of Churches jointly developed the international resource, using material provided by an ecumenical group in Malta representing a variety of Christian faith traditions. The material for Canada was adapted and produced by an ecumenical writing team coordinated by the Commission on Faith and Witness of the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC).  Local resources for Canada can be accessed on the website of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity: in English: https://www.weekofprayer.ca/2020-wpcu-resources or in French: https://www.weekofprayer.ca/fr/ressources-2020 and International resources produced by the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and the Commission on Faith and Order of the World Council of Churches are accessible through the following links: in English: http://www.christianunity.va/content/unitacristiani/en/settimana-di-preghiera-per-l-unita/en.html or in French: http://www.christianunity.va/content/unitacristiani/fr/settimana-di-preghiera-per-l-unita/semaine-de-priere-pour-l-unite-des-chretiens-20200.html
