OTTAWA, Ontario, November 16, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Carleton Lifeline, the campus pro-life group that made headlines last month after several of its members were arrested by Ottawa’s Carleton University, now faces decertification unless they renounce the pro-life beliefs expressed in the club’s constitution.What Carleton Lifeline should submit on November 18th is a lawsuit against Bushnaq and the other pro-abort parasites in the so called "student association" that pocket students' money but deny them the freedom to express their views. The next step should be a class action suit by all the student groups that were denied freedom of speech on campus for the right to disaffiliate themselves completely with the official association and for their own, independent student union of so they wish.
Khaldoon Bushnaq, Vice-President of Internal Affairs for the Carleton University Students’ Association (CUSA), wrote the club by e-mail on Thursday saying they would not be recertified because their constitution violates CUSA’s Discrimination on Campus Policy, which purports to uphold “a woman’s right to choose.”
The offending paragraph in the club's constitution, which Bushnaq quoted, states that the club “believes in the equal rights of the unborn and firmly believes that abortion is a moral and legal wrong, not a constitutional right. Therefore, Carleton Lifeline shall work to promote the legal protection of the unborn and their basic human rights to life.”
Bushnaq gave the club until November 18th to submit an amended constitution.

John Carpay, a civil liberties lawyer from Calgary, who has dealt with similar bans on anti-abortion groups, said CUSA's offer to reinstate the club if it agrees to endorse abortion rights can only be laughed at.
"That's awfully generous of them to offer an opportunity for repentance," said Mr. Carpay. "But it is truly alarming that CUSA would so easily suppress free speech. It's tragic."
