A quick follow-up on the woman who killed her boyfriend claiming he was threatening her life. She got pregnant and he wanted her to get an abortion. (We commented on this here.) She was convicted of manslaughter:
The case of a Calgary woman convicted of killing her boyfriend when he tried to force her to get an abortion has renewed the debate around Canada’s abortion laws days after Parliament voted down a law that would have made it illegal to coerce a woman into ending the life of her child.
But I’m not sure that this particular case does “renew the abortion debate.” Seems like the courts decided she’s guilty and that not a verdict I have any reason to question.
What I do know is that the abortion debate will continue to be renewed and renewed again because it’s the debate that never goes away. And that’s a good thing.
