Canada does late-term abortions - don't let the pro-aborts tell you it doesn't happen

The lie

"No providers in Canada offer abortion care beyond 23 weeks and 6 days. When they are beyond 23 weeks and 6 days, many Canadians end up having to travel to the United States to access services with little guidance or support from their governments."

Regarding the grim case of a recent 38 week old fetus being aborted in particular, I received this question from someone:

"I was led to believe in the past that 3rd trimester abortions for Canadian Women were actually done in the US as their weren’t doctors to do them in Canada. Is that correct? Also was this one done in Montreal a first in Canada? Really having a hard time getting my head around this."

The short answer is: 

  • Canada does send women to the US for abortions
  • the very late term abortion in Montreal was not a first for Canada
  • every year there are many late-term abortions done in Canada
  • and please note that all these abortions detailed below result in a live child who is left to die, they also just happen to be late-term abortions

The problem is that the pro-aborts would have us believe that these horrific abortions are rare. They are not.

Below is what we know for sure, but as always, there is a lot of data missing from this. All this information below comes from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI). So please don't shoot the messenger.

NOTE: There are also stillborn abortions listed in the links below. Because gestational ages are not provided for stillborn abortions, I am not including them in my calculations below, except to identify their numbers. All of these stillborn abortions reported by CIHI are > 20 weeks gestation. Therefore, there would definitely be late-term abortions in these numbers, we just don't know how many.

Born alive abortions

NOTE this from CIHI:

"in accordance with CIHI’s privacy policy, cells with counts of 1 to 4 are suppressed. These are represented by N/R (Not reportable) in the table. Suppressed cells are excluded from the totals."

What this means is, that when you see a cell containing N/R, there are 1 to 4 of these abortions for that gestational age.

In 2020/2021 there were 8 born alive abortions 29 + weeks, and 8 between 25 and 28 weeks.

There were also 935 stillborn abortions done this year, all > 20 weeks gestation. Some of these would be late-term abortions.

In 2019/2020 there were 10 born alive abortions performed 25-28 week gestation, and 1-4, 29 + weeks

There were also 999 stillborn abortions done this year, all > 20 weeks gestation. Some of these would be late-term abortions.

In 2018-2019 there were 5 born alive abortions done 29 + weeks, and 15 done 25 -28 weeks

There were also 902 stillborn abortions done this year, all > 20 weeks gestation. Some of these would be late-term abortions.

In 2013-2018 there were 8 plus an unknown number of born alive abortions done of 29 + weeks, and there were 27 done 25 - 28 weeks.

There were also 4,282 stillborn abortions done this year, all > 20 weeks gestation. Some of these would be late-term abortions.

Canada's independent media and how to do FOIs and ATIPs

This is an excellent resource with links to pretty much all of Canada's independent media groups. Much better to check them out instead of going to the usual pinko CBC/Global News/CTV/Toronto Star bunch, all of which get government funding and really really really don't like conservatives/pro-life people.

Non-legacy news outlets in Canada

And one of the links I got from the site was this one:

It gives information on doing Freedom of Information requests (provincial), and Access to Information requests (federal). I already know how to do these, and do a lot of them, but this page details all the links you need in one place, a very handy resource.

Medical abortion is fatal for 19 year old woman

UPDATE: I could find nothing in the media about this tragedy. Two lives cut short. A family somewhere suffering from this young woman's death. And nothing in the pro-abortion media.

Since I last reported on the serious side effects of Mifegymiso (the medical abortion pill) a year ago, I checked again to see if there were any more adverse reactions (from the Canada Vigilance Adverse Reaction Online Database) to this deadly abortion pill.  

Unfortunately I discovered that a fatal report was submitted on 2022-07-04. This was a 19 year old young woman who died from septic shock by taking this horrific drug. 

This deadly drug is produced by Linepharma, who markets, distributes, sells and profits from abortion in over 25 countries, including Canada.

Don't let anyone tell you that this drug is safe. It is not. Not only does it kill children in the womb, it kills women.

Palliative care: no stats, not essential - MAID: yes stats, yes essential

I made a request to Health Canada for this information (someone else had already submitted the ATIP):

"Request Number: A-2019-001974, Agendas, meeting notes, briefing materials, and calendar entries related to meetings between Canadian not-for-profit "Dying with Dignity Canada" and Health Canada officials between 2016 and March 2020."

The first page of the document revealed that someone in Health Canada advised that the Minister should meet Dying with Dignity soon (within a month it states). It was Important to do so. Can you imagine a pro-life group ever getting to meet with the Minister? No, me neither. But for this pro-death organization, they did get a meeting with the Minister because it was "important" to do so and it had to be done quickly. This happened in 2016.

Note that CARP (CANADIAN ASSOCIATION OF RETIRED PERSONS) also met with Health Canada in this April 2016 meeting. CARP also supports MAID.
"CARP believes the criteria under which patients can request and receive assistance in dying from a physician should be expanded."

This from the ATIP:

 The Minister of Health is apparently "determined to address mental health services and palliative care services". So I went to CIHI to see what they had on palliative care. What they had was from 2018 and nothing since then: CIHI 2018 report

When I asked CIHI if they had anything more recent than this 2018 report, the answer was no. When I asked them if they had any stats on palliative care, the answer was no. CIHI is the organization that publishes health statistics for Canada. They have nothing recent on the subject and no statistics. Shouldn't we be alarmed at these facts?

And it gets even worse. From Canadian Physicians for Life:
MAiD has been deemed an essential service in Canada. Currently, palliative care is not an essential service. Palliative Care needs to be deemed an essential service under the Canada Health Act. This would ensure all Canadians have access to compassionate end of life care that allows them to both live and die with dignity.

MAID is deemed an essential service. Palliative care is not deemed an essential service. But I can tell you that even though we have no statistics on palliative care in Canada we do have statistics of how many people we have killed. Health Canada publishes those statistics. In fact, the Minister of Health The Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, said he was:

"proud to present this Third Annual Report on Medical Assistance in Dying in Canada (2021)"

He's proud to present statistics on how many people Canada killed. Let that sink in.
