Stop Abortion Now
Imagine the person you love and cherish most in your lives being brutally taken away from you, slaughtered, and thrown in the trash. How your heart and life would be broken and devastated. This is how God feels with each and every aborted child. Do we dislike God so much that we must continue to hurt Him in this way?
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born, I consecrated you; …” --Jeremiah 1:5
When the seed is planted ... life begins!... ask any farmer.
"To accept the fact that after fertilization has taken place a new human has come into being is no longer a matter of taste or opinion ... it is plain experimental evidence." The "Father of Modern Genetics" Dr. Jerome Lejeune, Univ. of Descarte, Paris
"By all the criteria of modern molecular biology, life is present from the moment of conception." Dr. Hymie Gordon, Chairman, Department of Genetics at the Mayo Clinic
Dr Porcu said that, when a single cell arrived from an egg and sperm, there was a new biological entity. "An embryo is the beginning of human life, no one can say any different. The first cell is the beginning, the first cell of the new individual."
There is no more pivotal moment in the subsequent growth and development of a human being than when 23 chromosomes of the father join with 23 chromosomes of the mother to form a unique, 46-chromosomed individual, with a gender, who had previously simply not existed.
Dr. Kischer, emeritus professor of Anatomy at the University of Arizona, writes, "…the first thing learned in human embryology [is] that the life of the new individual human being begins at fertilization (conception)"
The bottom line is that in terms of biology and human embryology, a human being begins immediately at fertilization and after that, there is no point along the continuous line of human embryogenesis where only a "potential" human being can be posited. Any philosophical, legal, or political conclusion cannot escape this objective scientific fact. Dr. Fritz Baumgartner
Your life began, as did the life of every other human being, when the fusion of egg and sperm produced a new, complete, living organism — an embryonic human being. Robert P. George is McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at PrincetonUniversity.
Based on universally accepted scientific criteria, a new cell, the human zygote, comes into existence at the moment of sperm-egg fusion, an event that occurs in less than a second. The scientific evidence supports the conclusion that a zygote is a human organism and that the life of a new human being commences at a scientifically well defined “moment of conception.” This conclusion is objective, consistent with the factual evidence, and independent of any specific ethical, moral, political, or religious view of human life or of human embryos.

Freedom of choice was first given to man by God … choice to do good or evil. The ‘honorable’ Pierre Trudeau (Federal Government) gave Canadian woman the choice of life (good) or death (evil) for their planted seed. Since that time, Canadian woman have chosen to kill over 3.5 million Canadians (more than the entire population of the Province of Alberta). In 1995, then Health Minister Diane Marleau informed (threatened) all the provinces that they were required to pay for a service she termed medically necessary, and she withheld transfer payments from Alberta until it agreed to pay the full cost of an abortion regardless of where it was performed. Unfortunately, all Canadian provincial governments have chosen short term money over life, a life that would contribute thousands of dollars to taxes and contributions to essential services . By continuing with this politically endorsed insanity we are destroying the financial, moral, and social fabric of mankind.
Besides the threatening government officials ("Vote my way or else" - Hon. Paul Martin - National Post), that we Canadians continually vote into power, the 'doctors' who perform these procedures are perhaps more guilty and responsible for this horrendous genocide by going against their own Hippocratic Oath.
"I solemnly pledge myself to consecrate my life to the service of humanity. I will give to my teachers the respect and gratitude which is their due; I will practice my profession with conscience and dignity; the health of my patient will be my first consideration; I will respect the secrets which are confided in me; I will maintain by all means in my power the honor and noble traditions of the medical profession; my colleagues will be my brothers; I will not permit considerations of religion, nationality, race, party politics, or social standing to intervene between my duty and my patient; I will maintain the utmost respect for human life, from the time of conception; even under threat, I will not use my medical knowledge contrary to the laws of humanity. I make these promises solemnly, freely, and upon my honor."
"I will follow that method of treatment which, according to my ability and judgment, I consider for the benefit of my patients, and abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous. I will give no deadly medicine to anyone if asked, nor suggest any such counsel; furthermore, I will not give to a woman an instrument to produce abortion.”
"These men should be marked as Cain was marked; they should be made the outcasts of society . . . respectable men should cease to consult with them, should cease to speak to them, should cease to notice them except with contempt . . . Resolved, that we repudiate and denounce the conduct of abortionists, and that we will hold no intercourse with them professionally or otherwise, and that we will, whenever an opportunity presents, guard and protect the public against the machinations of these characters by pointing out the physical and moral ruin which follows in their wake." W. Brennan, "The Abortion Holocaust," Landmark Press, p. 189
'Canadian babies are beautiful and loving. They grow into great taxpayers to help our boomers grow old. Why do we allow our government to spend millions of Medicare dollars to kill more than 100,000 of them every year?' anonymous boomer parent.
Let's do the math. Aside from all the spiritual and moral issues surrounding the abortion issue there is the financial consideration which in Canada affects us all. The cost of an abortion in Canada ranges from $500. (in a back ally clinic) to over $1200. (in a hospital). If I were seeking an abortion I would definitely opt for a safer hospital surrounding (more doctors, better access to blood - if required, more resources to handle complications, etc). For argument sake let's adopt an average cost of $800. for one abortion. For the past nine years (1996-2005) Stats Canada has reported a high (1997) of 111,819 abortions to a low (2005) of 97,254 abortions. Again, for argument sake, let's adopt an average of 100,000 abortions per year (very low). $800. times 100,000 equals $80,000,000 per year of tax payer dollars - The Cost of Abortions /year. According to a report from the Fraser Institute an average Canadian tax payer with an income of $58,782 pays $27,640 in taxes (per year) of which $8,887 (32%) is income tax. To calculate lost revenue let's take a low average of $15,000 per year times 100,000 aborted Canadians equals $1,500,000,000 - Lost Revenue /year. This brings the Total cost of abortion to $1,580,000,000 /year. YIKES
According to Dr. Warren Hern, world renowned abortionist "In medical practice, there are few surgical procedures given so little attention and so underrated in its potential hazards as abortion. It is a commonly held view that complications are inevitable." Perhaps the most prevalent and talked about in his three pages of 'complications' is - Breast Cancer Women who have aborted have significantly higher rates of breast cancer later in life. Breast cancer has risen by 50% in America since abortion became legal in 1973. A recent Japanese study has reported a 66% increase in breast cancer due to abortion. The dollars spent on research and treatment of the side effects of abortion brings the total cost of abortion to a huge incomprehensible figure ... not to mention the irreparable harm we are inflicting on our female population.
Can we Canadians afford to flush this much money down the toilet EACH AND EVERY YEAR while millions of human beings are going hungry / homeless? The numbers are ten times this in the United States. It's no wonder the whole world is suffering from economic depression and health care system breakdowns. All these abortion dollars are lost to the world FOREVER.
In Canada all abortions are paid for with tax dollars thus all Canadians and foreign workers who pay taxes are aiding and abetting not only in the genocide of their own people but forces every tax payer to accept the responsibility of every woman who chooses not to accept responsibility for their own actions. How can a 'democratic' government force this expense and responsibility on their people without their consent? How and when do these women learn to be accountable for their own personal actions? Why are Canadian men forced to accept their responsibility for their actions while woman are not?
Our Canadian government needs to wake up, do the math, balance the rights of men and woman, provide human rights for our brothers and sisters in the womb, and stop making each and every tax-payer guilty of murder through aiding and abetting with their tax dollars.
