THE BIG LIE: LEGAL AND SAFE ABORTIONS
It is a sobering thought to realize that, soon, an entire generation will
have come to maturity never knowing a time when children did not have to
thank their parents for not killing them. Abortion on demand has now settled
into the very marrow of our western secular culture. It almost defies
rational thought that a nation such as Canada could change in less than a
generation into a giant human abatoir in which every third baby
conceived in our country is knifed, poisoned, starved, choked or dismembered?
Much of this sea of change in the respect formally given to pre-natal life can
be put at the feet of the influencial Woman`s Liberation Movement which has
established its secular church on the rock of unrestricted abortion. Much
of it also can be blamed
on our Supreme Court which still clings to the flat earth credo that the
unborn child is merely a part of his mother`s body. But most of the
responsibility has to be attributed to the actions of our own federal
government which opened the flood gates of abortion in 1969, when a Catholic
prime minister and a cabinet made up in majority of Catholic ministers,
passed legislation which paved the way for the legalized killing of children
at any time before birth. As a result, about 2 million preborn children
have been killed in Canada since that date, and many women shamefully
exploited and irreparably harmed.
The greatest myth abortionists and their pro-choice supporters have
succeeded in entrenching in the public mind in the intervening years is that
legal abortion is safe, even safer, than other common forms of surgery. In
objective terms this is true. But this is due exclusively to the kinds of
patients who submit themselves to abortion. In other surgical procedures,
the patient may be old and/or deathly ill or injured, while abortion
patients are always relatively young and normally in good health. In fact
it has been observed that a woman is never more healthy in life than when
she is pregnant. It is also true that clinic abortions would also be
considered safer (although this is seldom the case) than those executed in
hospitals. The rationale here is that hospitals will do the risky abortions
that abortion clinics would never even consider.
But the stark reality is that after more than twenty five years of
legalization in the U.S. and some 30 years in Canada, the abortion industry
has yet to approach even minimal safety standards, and women are being
butchered because of it. If you believe nothing else about the abortion
industry, believe this: Anytime you see a statistical chart about injury,
sexual assault, or death in abortion clinics, the person who compiled that
chart either is very misinformed or is lying. Under the current system,
there is absolutely no definitive way to have accurate information on this
subject, and without profound systemic changes there never will be.
Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the now reformed abortion advocate mainly responsible
for legalizing abortion on demand in the U.S., was once asked to do a study
in New York of the then largest and 'best' abortion clinic in the world.
The exasperated clinic
administrator told Nathanson that the doctors were "atrocious...sadists,
drunks, incompetents, sex maniacs, thieves, butchers, and lunatics...half of
them don`t even wash their hands anymore before doing an abortion, let alone
scrubbing. They refuse to use masks or caps, and their mustaches are
literally dragging into the suction machines." When Nathanson inspected the
facility he found that it was chaotic, crowded, inadequately lighted,
ill-equipped, poorly run, poorly staffed, dirty, operating with no
back-up emergency hospital, and showed callous disdain for the women it
'counselled' (and aborted).
Investigating an abortion-related death in this same abortion clinic
sometime later, health inspectors found conditions in it so appalling that
they wouldn`t be tolerated in a veterinary clinic. Clearly no one who cared
about the women they treated would have allowed this sort of thing to go on.
Consider that the man (yes, a man) responsible for killing the woman
performed 10 additional abortions afterward. Despite having just seen a
19-year-old girl lose her life because of his incompetence, he immediately
resumed his normal routine.
Contrast that to a situation a few years back when a promising boxer killed
an opponent in the ring. Although he intellectually knew that it was not his
fault, this man was so unnerved by the experience that he was unable to even
talk about the experience and had to stop boxing. Unlike the above
abortionist, this prizefighter - a man whom many would label as violent -
had enough humanity in him to be traumatized by having participated
in the taking of another human being`s life.
Both the Canadian and American abortion industries fiercely resist
regulation or policing by government and even want courts to rule that
government oversight of abortion is an unconstitutional infringement on a
woman`s right to abortion.
Generally, the argument is that regulation would drive the cost up and deny
some women access to abortion services. In effect what the abortion industry
wants is not "safe and legal" abortions, but "cheap and legal" ones.
Consider the American National Abortion Federation which represents most of
the abortion clinics in the U.S. It publishes standards of conduct for
abortion clinics; however, it has never implemented a system to monitor
whether its facilities are following these standards as it lacks both power
and the will to enforce them.
An abortion clinic killed at least two women during botched abortions in
1989. Barbary Radford, executive director of the American National Abortion
Federation, admitted being aware of this but decided to remain silent. By
admitting that they knew of these instances and yet remained silent in the
hope that "the media wouldn`t find out", these pro-choice activists were
really saying that they are willing to sacrifice women to protect their
Abortuaries truly represent humanity`s negation of God`s creation. Here in
New Brunswick, if truth be know, Hell exists at 88 Ferry Rd., in
Fredericton. Sad to say, it also has been given existence in some of our
provincial hospitals which boasts of
committing 624 abortions in 1995 (the most recent figure available).
