Celebrating a Killing Decision

Note: The article below was written in 2008

“…we celebrate the Supreme Court decision,…”
Judy Rebick, National Post, January 26, 2008

The Supreme Court of Canada brought down a judgement in 1988 that took abortion out of the criminal code. Canada now has no law on abortion, and we now have unrestrained killing. Over 100,000 lives are slaughtered yearly in the name of “choice.” Ms. Rebick in her National Post column stated: “Ninety per cent of abortions in Canada take place in the first 12 weeks.” There is a picture of an 8 week human life torn apart by abortion at:  where one can see the butchered body of this tiny human. This is a cause for “celebration” in Canada? Surely, something is seriously wrong in a supposedly “civilized” country that we would even allow this type of barbarism?

There were a number of articles on abortion by various writers in the  National Post during the week of January 21 to 28,  while it was interesting to read this debate on state sanctioned  killing, I believe, there was evidence lacking  in the Post’s coverage. For example, in most mainstream media we get pictures of the victims in wars and the atrocities perpetrated on them, the middle east is but one example. The holocaust is another.  In the coverage of the killing by abortion we do not get to see the dismembered victims in the media. Why is this? “A picture is worth a thousand words” as the saying goes. And this week in the National Post we had no pictures. Let the people see the gory pictures of the little innocent victims carved up and cut to pieces by abortion. Then go and interview Ms. Rebick  and have her explain the dismembered bodies of  these little innocents under “12 weeks” who have been butchered. Below are the methods used in  this “celebration” of killing.
Source for the following information on abortion methods is: 

Suction Aspiration
This is the most common method of abortion during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. General or local anaesthesia is given to the mother and her cervix is quickly dilated. A suction curette (hollow tube with a knife-edged tip) is inserted into the womb. This instrument is then connected to a vacuum machine by a transparent tube. The vacuum suction, 29 times more powerful than a household vacuum cleaner, tears the fetus and placenta into small pieces which are sucked through the tube into a bottle and discarded.

Dilation and Curettage (D&C)
This method is similar to the suction method with the added insertion of a hook shaped knife (curette) which cuts the baby into pieces. The pieces are scraped out through the cervix and discarded [Note: This abortion method should not be confused with a therapeutic D&C done for reasons other than pregnancy.]
Dilation and Evacuation (D&E)
This method is used up to 18 weeks' gestation. Instead of the loop-shaped knife used in D&C abortions, a pair of forceps is inserted into the womb to grasp part of the fetus. The teeth of the forceps twist and tear the bones of the unborn child. This process is repeated until the fetus is totally dismembered and removed. Usually the spine must be snapped and the skull crushed in order to remove them.

Salt Poisoning (Saline Injection):
Used after 16 weeks (four months) when enough fluid has accumulated. A long needle injects a strong salt solution through the mother's abdomen into the baby's sac. The baby swallows this fluid and is poisoned by it. It also acts as a corrosive, burning off the outer layer of skin. It normally takes somewhat over an hour for the baby to die from this. Within 24 hours, labor will usually set in and the mother will give birth to a dead or dying baby. (There have been many cases of these babies being born alive. They are usually left unattended to die. However, a few have survived and later been adopted.)

Prostaglandin Chemical Abortion:
This form of abortion uses chemicals developed by the Upjohn Pharmaceutical Co. which cause the uterus to contract intensely, pushing out the developing baby. The contractions are more violent than normal, natural contractions, so the unborn baby is frequently killed by them -- some have even been decapitated. Many, however, have also been born alive.

Five steps to a partial birth abortion:
1) Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's legs with forceps.
2) The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
3) The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head
4) The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the skull.
5) The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.

Most people are horrified when they see pictures on television of baby seals being clubbed to death and the ice flows running red with their blood. Warnings are issued on TV before showing the pictures and we are told the images are gruesome. Imagine if these same TV cameras or if the National Post took us inside a local abortuary where babies are slaughtered, suctioned out, poisoned by a saline solution or in some cases born alive and left to die. Then published the pictures!  The people would be able to see this grisly “procedure” performed by abortionists. The light would at last be shone on this atrocity called “choice,” and one wonders, would it still be a cause for “celebration?”
