TO RYERSON UNIVERSITY
We, the undersigned, are deeply concerned about the invitation to MARGARET SOMERVILLE to award her an honorary degree on June 19th, 2006.
-Margaret Somerville is a McGill University ethicist who is renown for her controversial views on same-sex rights.
-her views on reproductive rights are anti-feminist.
-she holds anti-gay sentiments and is an outspoken critic of same-sex marriage and families.
-she seeks to restrict access to insemination and methods of "assisted fertility".

This award seems contradictory to the human rights and anti-oppression policies Ryerson University strives to stand for.

We urge Ryerson University to disinvite Margaret Somerville from receiving an honorary degree.
