This blog deals with Life issues surrounding abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, ethics pertaining to end of life care, and other bioethical issues.
If we accept the principle that universal human rights are worth embracing, then all human life must be included within this ideal. That's what "universal" means. Human rights begin when human life begins and ends with life's natural conclusion. Anything else is either ignorance or sophistry and bigotry." -- Mark Davis Pickup
America has Sanctity of Life Week. (See the beautiful video link above promoting it.) It coincides with their day of infamy when abortion became legal across the land by a Supreme Court decision known as Roe V. Wade (January 22 1973). Over 50 million preborn children have been aborted since then. Does Canada have a similar week of observance to coincide with our day of infamy? January 28th 1988 when Canada's Supreme Court struck down our feeble abortion law. I remember the image of a coven of feminists hooting and dancing in celebration on the streets of Toronto.
Our preborn children have no legal protection at any point in their 9th month journey to birth. Canadian taxpayers are forced to pay for every abortion. A woman can have an abortion for any reason at all or no reason whatsoever. And she can have as many as she wants at taxpayer expense. Have Canadian religious leaders come together to establish a Sanctity of Life Week in Canada? If not, why not?
