That delegates at the recent Canadian Medical Association general council meeting held in Yellowknife, N.W.T. supported the current Criminal Code definition of a human being, smacks of ignorance from those we’d least expect it on this issue. You would think physicians should know that when a man and woman copulate, the ‘products of conception’ are none other than a human being. I’m pretty sure you won’t find any of the doctors that attended this meeting argue to the contrary. Why then the ignorance? Why would Canada’s physicians show a blatant disregard for all they have been taught concerning embryology and human anatomy? The Canadian Medical Association, rather than enter this debate over the definition of a human being from an objective position, and relying on their credentials, has placed ideology over science. Instead of educating Canadians as to the various stages of human development, they have become a mouthpiece for ardent feminists who believe that abortion is solely a women’s rights issue. “I’m not asking if you are for or against abortion,” Dr. Genevieve Desbiens said to the delegates at the general council meeting. “I’m asking for you to recognize that women must retain their full and complete rights,” she added. This coming from a Montreal physician who knows full well that when she treats a woman who is pregnant there are two patients she is caring for.

With just over a month to go before the second hour of debate on Motion 312, now is the time to let your MP know your position on this important issue and encourage him/her to support a discussion on the definition of humanity. The...

What type of law are you talking about? In our parliamentary system a bill would come from either an MP or a Senator. Currently there is no abortion-related bill before Parliament and until one is introduced we don’t know the specifics of it. That said, due...

  National Post - Full Comment article by Mike Schouten   (It should be noted that due to length the National Post editors did take out portions of the article that was sent in. The full submission is pasted below) Canada is the only country in the Western world with no legal protection for pre-born children. This puts us in the company of only two other countries worldwide: North Korea and China. According to a June 2012 survey commissioned by Postmedia News and Global TV, 60% of Canadians would like to see abortion restricted to the first and second trimester. In 2011, Abacus Data polls found that 60% of Canadians believed that the life of the unborn should be protected at some point during the pregnancy. Similarly, a 2011 poll by Environics asked participants when they thought abortion should be illegal and 77% answered, “in the last three months” of pregnancy. If any other special interest group had numbers that were consistently this strong, policy change would surely have occurred by now. Why has there been no progress in achieving legal protection for pre-born children in over 24 years?
