Dion's wife implying that pro-lifers are terrorists?

More bullying and intimidation from pro-aborts who realize that they have no real arguments to support abortion. This time, the brainless argument comes from St├ęphane Dion's wife, Janine Krieber. Read below.


Wife of Liberal Leader says Abortion Debate Next Terrorist Threat
By Hilary White

PETERBOROUGH, ON, June 18, 2008 ( - The wife of Liberal Party leader Stephane Dion has said that the next most serious domestic terrorist threat in Canada could be the return of the abortion debate, reports the Peterborough Examiner. She indicated that the factor that has introduced this threat is Bill C-484, the Unborn Victims of Crime Act, brought forward by Conservative MP Ken Epp.

Janine Krieber, an expert in international relations, military strategy and terrorism, was speaking to a small audience at Fleming College in Peterborough, Ontario, yesterday. In her speech she identified any area in society that creates "social division" as a "potential threat either high or low".

"The problem I see, for the moment, coming next is that we bring back abortion discussions into society," said Krieber. "We had problems before and if we bring that back too severely it will bring conflict."

Krieber told the Peterborough Examiner in an interview that her response was provoked by a demonstration in Montreal by pro-aborts protesting Epp's proposed Unborn Victims of Crime Act Bill, C-484.

The bill proposes to make it an offence to "injure, cause the death of, or attempt to cause the death of a child before or during its birth while committing, or attempting to commit, an offence against the mother." Despite the bill's provision to protect legal abortion, abortion advocates have accused the government of introducing abortion restrictions by the back-door.

"When we forecast terrorism we have to look at what are the controversial topics in a society," Krieber said.

Although Krieber made no specific call to have the bill withdrawn, others have decried her statement as an attempt to create a climate of fear over the possibility of bringing back any discussion about abortion.

Terry O'Neill, a commentator at the Western Standard blog, wrote, "I can't help but wonder how long it will be before a pro-abortion activist starts demanding that the bill (C-484) be killed on the grounds that it could lead to violence - even, of course, if that violence were, as Krieber suggests, to originate with fellow pro-abortion activists."
