I write concerning Russell Wangersky’s column “Playing whack-a-mole with the abortion issue,” Sept. 22.
Tory Stephen Woodworth’s motion would have created a committee to review the legal definition of what constitutes a human being. The current definition is based on outdated information.
This bill is only part of a debate that has been going on in Parliament and on the streets of Canada since 1967. It has been going for some 45 years.
Originally, the Supreme Court sent the abortion issue back to Parliament to make a better law.
Mr. Wangersky is a newspaperman, yet, he does not want to see this debate. So he and the rest of the media pretend it has not been happening.
He believes the abortion issue is settled; Canadians disagree.
Wangersky is an advocate of abortion. He comes out swinging and scaremongering.
What is he afraid of? What is it about honest debate that scares him?
For Wangersky, this matter is settled. However, the facts demonstrate otherwise.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of Canadian men, women and children march on Ottawa in the March for Life. They annually protest Canada’s lack of abortion law.
They march because all of Canada’s children are not protected. Further, every year, tens of thousands of men, women and children form Life Chains across Canada to protest the killing of our children in abortuaries.
Before 1967, feminists led an abortion caravan from B.C. to Ottawa to fight for abortion. Today, pro-life youth on the university campuses — they call themselves abortion survivors — form an abortion caravan with huge trucks to show pictures of the killed children.
Canadians have been having an abortion debate in this country since 1967 but Mr. Wangersky and other media, with their bias against unborn children, choose not to report it.
He has clearly not been paying attention to write such an uninformed column.
Before 1967, before abortion, all Canadian children were assumed to be recognized as persons at conception. Canadian men, women and children, once again, work for the day all Canadian children — born and unborn — will once again have their right to life restored.
They will be recognized as persons and protected.
That is the right thing to do. Let the women have their rights but not on the backs of innocent children who cannot speak for themselves.
Mr. Wangersky wants to end this human rights movement.
He is so wrong!
He wants to leave these unborn children to their fate in the abortion clinics across Canada. Many of us are old enough to remember when all Canada’s children were protected, beginning at conception.
