It is liberty

Credit where due: The Canadian Civil Liberties Association has written to the Canadian Federation of Students objecting to a CFS resolution supporting student unions who deny campus-club status, and with it money and office space, to pro-life organizations. The CCLA's general counsel, Alan Borovoy, said his organization has "a strongly pro-choice orientation" which is strangely predictable; civil liberties associations often seem to regard liberty as something desirable primarily as a way of advancing left-wing causes. But that makes it all the more admirable that they wrote this letter asking the CFS "What is there about these anti-abortion groups that warrant such special denigration?" and saying "the proper response is argument, not censorship." Why you'd have to tell a university student organization that is a mystery to me, but kudos to the CCLA for doing so.
