One of the most significant benefits of an abortion law, even a late-term abortion law, would be to stop the slide of Canada’s jurisprudence into the tacit acceptance of infanticide or “post-birth abortion” as the Journal of Medical Ethics referred to it. This is not anti-abortion fear mongering — one only has to look at the Netherlands’ 2002 Groningen Protocol allowing for the euthanizing of disabled infants to realize that this would not be unprecedented, even in Western Society.
Hey, if a baby has to die in the name of women's empowerment, so what!
That's the feminist attitude.
We might also consider toughening up our laws against infanticide as they stand.
