[efoods]An anti-abortion club has had its campus rights suspended by McGill University’s student body council.
A motion to suspend the student club status granted to Choose Life was passed 16-7 on Nov. 12 by the Student Society of McGill University (SSMU).
Choose Life has been criticized on different Canadian campuses for distributing graphic anti-abortion literature, including on McGill’s downtown campus.
A meeting organized this fall by the group, which included a speaker who compared abortion to genocide and the Holocaust, soured when pro-choice students stormed the gathering.
