Abortion By The Numbers in Canada

The National Post recently published a very informative and sobering infographic that breaks down the number of abortions that happened in Canada in 2009 by province and age of mother and child. (Note that the data underestimates the number of abortions because they’re not all reported.) What will you do to help decrease the number of preventable deaths where you live?

On a similar note, it was recently reported that 491 babies were born alive and left to die following botched abortions in Canada from 2000 to 2009. Have you emailed your MP?

Someone had to say it

Here’s an excellent article by Kelly McParland that appeared in today’s National Post that exposes the hypocrisy of pro-choice people objecting to sex-selection-abortion.

In order to support “a woman’s right to choose,” you have to believe that a fetus is not human in the moral sense. This judgment — or lack thereof — is encoded in Canadian law, which permits abortion for any reason, or no reason at all.

If you believe a fetus is not a human life, the fetus becomes no different from any other unwanted appendage on a woman’s body. There is no moral difference to removing it than there is to removing an unwanted mole, or an unsightly wart. It’s just a bunch of flesh, with no human soul or spirit to it, so what’s the difference?

Why, then, would abortion proponents object to women having abortions because they don’t like the sex of the fetus? If a fetus is not human, a woman has the right to abort it for whatever reason she chooses: because she doesn’t feel like going through the process; because it might interfere with her career plans; because she doesn’t like children in general; or because she loves Starbucks and someone told her she’d have to give up caffeine during the pregnancy. What, no latte?

Well said, well said.  Once again, the abortion debate comes down to the humanity of the unborn.
