In a good step forward for the pro-life cause, the federal government has announced that it will not be including abortion coverage in its G8 maternal health plan. Instead of focusing on a procedure which kills an unborn child and devastates the mother, the government is taking the novel approach of actually focusing on health care:
No abortion in Canada's G8 maternal health plan
It seems, however, that they're coming under very heavy criticism. There are hordes of Canadians who buy into the sophistry that a woman has the "right to choose" to kill her unborn child. This sort of argument would be laughably superficial if it weren't accepted by such a great number of people. Hopefully, this announcement will help bring the abortion issue to the fore so that people will be forced to confront the horror and violence the procedure involves. We must use this as an opportunity to bring this issue to light, so we can put an end to this grave and ongoing violation of human rights.
Please rate and leave comments on the CBC story. Right now, they're leaning heavily toward the nutters and the sophists.
