McGill Student Union Revokes Choose Life's Club Status

Reports ProWomanProLife.

The motion, which passed by a vote of 16-7, stipulated that the “Student Equity Committee work with Choose Life to draft a document for Choose Life on how to abide by SSMU’s Constitution, By-laws, and Policies, which will be adopted by Choose Life.”

I'm intrigued to say the least. How will that work, exactly? Criticizing abortion is perceived as misogynist, but the SSMU is willing to work with the group so that it...won't criticize abortion?

Is this a question of co-opting a group to better control its message, after a bunch of renegades staged a temper tantrum at the Echoes of the Holocaust presentation and embarrassed the crap out of the university?

I wonder.
