It was only a matter of time until it happened in Canada, and now it has. As Mark Steyn put it, we now have "fourth-trimester abortion".
Canada's moral compass, let free to swing wildly in any and all directions as far as abortion is concerned, has simply regressed to the point where fully tax funded abortion for all nine months of pregnancy wasn't enough.
The case of course, is about Katrina Effert, who in 2005, gave birth and then strangled her baby boy.
Judge Joanne Veit said in her ruling of the case:
“While many Canadians undoubtedly view abortion as a less than ideal solution to unprotected sex and unwanted pregnancy, they generally understand, accept and sympathize with the onerous demands pregnancy and childbirth exact from mothers, especially mothers without support,” she writes… “Naturally, Canadians are grieved by an infant’s death, especially at the hands of the infant’s mother, but Canadians also grieve for the mother.”
In a country where abortion is already fully legal until the precise moment of birth, we've finally taken the step over the precipice into that inevitable moment after birth.
Nobody should be surprised though. Not with political "leaders" who stick there fingers in their ears, squeeze their eyes shut, cover their mouths, and dance the hear no evil, see no evil, say no evil, abortion-rights-dance, round and round the mulberry bush.
Thomas More, patron saint of those same politicians taught us "by his life and his death that man cannot be separated from God, nor politics from morality."
Alas, Thomas More never came to Canada.
