The Supreme Court of Canada will hear an appeal of Canada's prostitution laws June 13. Several groups are prepared to argue against decriminalization on moral grounds. Deborah Gyapong of Canadian Catholic News reports:

The Catholic Civil Rights League, REAL Women of Canada, and the Christian Legal Fellowship will make a joint submission, as they did at both the trial level and at the Ontario Court of Appeal.

"We're very glad our application to intervene was accepted," said Catholic Civil Rights League executive director Joanne McGarry, who noted the three groups had been the only interveners on moral grounds when the prostitutions laws were being challenged in the lower courts.
