Antonia Zerbisias, columnist for the Toronto Star’s Living section and blogger at Broadsides, is challenging Canadian Feminist Bloggers to Blog for Choice on January 28th, 2008. Blog for Choice already exists in the US to commemorate the (now 35th) anniversary of Roe v. Wade, so “why not here?” Zerbisias asks:
January 28th marks the 20th anniversary of R. v. Morgenthaler, the Canadian Supreme Court decision, the one that declared it unconstitutional to force a woman to carry a fetus to term. In Toronto, on Saturday January 26th at 7, there will be a tribute at Ryerson University’s Student Centre.
Just so you know, the Morgentaler decision is not a sure thing. It doesn’t guarantee that another court can’t decide against a woman’s right to choose.
I agree with Zerbisias - Why not start a Blog for Choice Day in Canada, on January 28?
