Ideological Purity on Abortion

A small piece in today's National Post caught my eye. An anti-abortion groupin Montreal, Life Canada-Vie Canada, had a link on its web site asking its members to sign up for a fund-raising Mastercard. The group had been using the credit card for fundraising for about 10 years, and had had the link on its web site for about a year.

But, once pro-abortion people found out, they deluged the Bank of Montreal with complaints, and the Bank has asked Life Canada to remove the offensive link.

Personally, I support the right of women to have abortions, but I find attempts at ideological purity to be very upsetting. What ever happened to live and let live?
