This boggles the mind:
“I felt that my MP was using this issue as a wedge to drive into Canadian women’s abortion rights,” said pro-choice activist Laura Kaminker, referring to a letter — signed by Lizon — sent to RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson on Jan. 23, calling for a homicide investigation into late-term abortions…
“We want to oppose going backwards…we want to stomp out infringement on people’s rights. Women have the right to choose and have control over their own bodies.”
First, the request made by the three MPs, as I explained here, was not about criminalizing late term abortions. This is made clear in their letter to the RCMP. It is spelled out in plain English. The MPs want the RCMP to investigate the death of children who survive an abortion procedure and then die, whether from neglect or because they are somehow killed.
Second, the pro-choicers are arguing that this is about a women’s right to have control over her own body. In these cases the child is born alive – after surviving the abortion – and is already outside the mother’s body. So are these pro-choice activists arguing that the “right” to choose to abort one’s child extends to the right to kill one’s born alive child? Seriously?
When do they deem infanticide should be legal? Ten minutes after a child is born? A day? A week? Only after a failed abortion procedure?
What if a mother wakes up a week after giving birth, is exhausted from sleepless nights and decides that enough is enough? Should it be legal for her to kill her child? The child would also be “unwanted” at that point, wouldn’t it?by
