You Call THAT An Academic Debate?!

Silencing pro-lifers has become a trend on campuses from coast to coast. First it was the University of Calgary persecuting students for setting up a pro-life display, with the student association jumping on the bandwagon. Then we have pro-abort brownshirts shutting down fetal rights debate at Saint Mary's University in Nova Scotia.
See for yourself how tolerant those guys are to opinions that differ from their own, see how confident they feel towards an open debate and how solid and rational their counter-arguments are...
Then, as usual, the sheep broke into "Four legs good, two legs bad!" and the momentary awkwardness was smoothed over.
(George Orwell, "Animal Farm")
