Love and concern for the homeless in the womb

CBC tells us about a heckler who interrupts Laureen Harper at a charity event to raise money for homeless cats.

The woman brought up the issue of murdered and missing indigenous women.

Hailey King shouted at Mrs. Harper while she was speaking:
“Raising awareness about cat welfare is a good look for your husband’s upcoming campaign strategy...don’t you think supporting government action on missing and murdered indigenous women in this country would be a better look?”  
Mrs. Harper responds to the woman:
“We’re raising money for animals tonight. If you’d like to donate to animals, we’d love to take your money...that’s (missing women) a great cause, but that's another night. Tonight we’re here for homeless cats.”
So here's a thought. What about "homeless" babies in the womb? Who are evicted from their homes simply for being unwanted? Why does Mrs. Harper care about cats, but not for these tiny defenseless human beings?

Of course Mrs. Harper should be commended for her love and concern for homeless/abandoned animals. Someone who loves animals obviously cares about unwanted, unloved and uncared for creatures.

Yet I've never heard Laureen Harper mention these other creatures, who are the most disposable of the unwanted. I wonder why?

It seems to me that Mrs. Harper's love and concern could be easily expanded to include abandoned babies in the womb, and the mothers who carry them. Imagine the good that would come of this if she did?
