But in Canada (and globally), there is another horrendous act taking place every day, a scream that falls on deaf ears, the devastation of which is only seen by a few, and a pain that can affect a person, emotionally, physically, psychologically, and spiritually, for years and sometimes a lifetime, and that is abortion. Animals have more protection than unborn babies. Not one law, not one regulation, is in place because on January 28, 1988, our abortion laws were struck down and declared unconstitutional.
A baby can be aborted at any stage of development right up to the 9th month, and this has been happening.
Canadian abortion statistics for 2004 were released by Statistics Canada on July 13, 2007. The Therapeutic Abortion Survey reports that 100,039 unborn babies were killed by abortion in 2004, a number that accounts for about 90% of all abortions in the country for that year. A conservative estimate is 3 million abortions in Canada, and 45 million in North America within the past 25 years. Approximately 80% of babies diagnosed with Downs' Syndrome are aborted. These are our babies! They are our future.
Just as more information and education is needed to make the public aware of caring for animals, how much more is this needed concerning a human life. The growth and development of the unborn, especially in the early months, is nothing short of a miracle. Gone are the days of thinking there is just a mass of tissue.
Our society limits rights of individuals when they infringe on the rights of others. We deal harshly when a man uses his body to rape a female. We want to deal harshly when animals are abused! Apart from abortion, when else may a woman, in pursuit of a career, education, life style or personal interest, have the legal right to kill an innocent, defenseless human being!
There are many places in this world that are called dangerous, but no place is more dangerous than inside a mother's womb when the pregnancy is unwanted.
