Has this been a sore point long enough in politics. But it has also divided many a family and friends in the past. Has it done so to you ?
I have always had the opinion that if you produce a child you should be responsible enough to have the child..
But I do believe there are circumstances where Abortion is a necessary evil. I also see so many children alone on the streets and wonder why we would bring in so many more that Welfare and the system cannot handle even in a country such as Canada. I deal with those issues daily and as a father have been told the usual line "I did not ask to be born" and have to wonder in some cases if that really applies ?
WINNIPEG -- The new chairman of a secretive pro-life Parliamentary caucus is pledging to rekindle the abortion debate in Canada and bring "more value" to the lives of unborn children.
Although Prime Minister Stephen Harper has said he's not interested in reopening the divisive issue, Winnipeg MP Rod Bruinooge told The Canadian Press people need to be better educated about Canada's abortion stance, which he says puts the country in a "class of its own."
"Very few Canadians appreciate the fact that essentially until a child takes its first breath, it has less value than a kidney," says Bruinooge.
"In Canada you can't remove your kidney and put it on eBay and auction it off. That is illegal. Whereas you actually can end a beating heart of an unborn child the second before it's delivered. Most Canadians would agree that is truly a poor bioethical position for our country to be in."
Pro-choice advocates say Canadian doctors only perform such later-term procedures if there's a serious threat to the health of the mother or if it's virtually certain the baby wouldn't survive past birth.
What do you think of these motives and actions of this MP ?
