Covid-19 information on which vaccines use aborted fetuses

Some of the Covid-19 vaccines use aborted fetuses, and some use aborted fetuses in testing of the vaccine.
Information I have found so far:

Here is a couple of cut and pastes from Children of God for Life who have extensive information on the vaccines. 

These points are in the comment section of the article and are good short informative quotes on the vaccines currently available in Canada: Pfizer and Moderna.
"Pfizer/BioNTech was morally produced and contains no aborted fetal material. They did testing of the product on the HEK-293 cells but they are not part of the product, unlike the others listed in the red column on our website."
"There are no aborted fetal cells used in the production of the Pfizer vaccine; they tested the completed product. This is completely unlike Moderna’s vaccine that used aborted fetal cells IN the spike protein production which is part of their vaccine and they have done extensive research, development and testing using aborted fetal cells as well."
"The information on both Pfizer and Moderna is on our website here: The proof is linked to the science documents showing the data. The two vaccines do use the same technology – but one chose to do it morally (Pfizer) using adult donor cells and the other (Moderna) chose aborted fetal in the construct of their vaccine. However, they both tested their vaccines on aborted fetal cells."
"In the case of Pfizer, the HEK-293 cells were used only in the final testing, whereas Moderna used them in the research, development, testing and production of their spike protein. Pfizer on the other hand, created their protein using K562 cells from an adult female donor. The cells in both vaccines are NOT IN the final product. Both of the vaccines use mRNA technology which has never been used in any vaccines before."
"Both Pfizer and Moderna are using the mRNA technology. Pfizer did it morally (other than final testing) and Moderna did it immorally in their research, development, production and testing."

UPDATE Dec 30. 2020 more information and opposing viewpoints

Here is another viewpoint on the current vaccines available (Pfizer and Moderna). The article is long but worth the read.


Bishops Strickland and Schneider are both against the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

In the end, each person must make their own decision to take, or not to take, the current vaccines available. I am hoping that before my turn comes to get it that I have a third option that did not use aborted cell lines in either the vaccine, or in its testing.

The evil of abortion takes on newly exposed depravities

When it came to light that Planned Parenthood was selling aborted children for profit, there wasn't really a lot of discussion as to how the aborted body parts were used. Now we know -- and from the researchers themselves.

Planned Parenthood even called the videos from the Center for Medical Progress fake (and are now being sued for this libel). Another lie exposed.

This article documents three papers that document how the aborted children are being used. This is evil at its greatest.

There was a need for intact heads and body parts to be used, so that multiple body parts can be harvested and used in the same experiment. 

If this is not diabolical, nothing is.

Ontario abortion rates are going up

Ontario abortion rates as reported by the Ontario Ministry of Long-Term Care are going up. Yet CIHI shows a decrease in Ontario abortion rates. So I'm not sure why CIHI keeps reporting Ontario numbers. In any event, since the MOHLTC's numbers are based on doctor's billing records, they intuitively should be more accurate.

You can see from the chart that overall, MOHLTC's numbers went down for three years in a row (2014/2015 to 2017/2017), but then for the next three years (2017/2018 to 2019/2020), they went up.

This disturbing trend upwards is most likely due to the abortion pill which became legal in 2017. This is really bad news for Canadians, especially those still in the womb.

Abortions performed in the Northwest Territories

Below are the abortions being done in the Northwest Territories, with a comparison to what CIHI reports. Notice that CIHI reports slightly more than the NWT. Also note that the NWT is not reporting medical abortions. So actual numbers will definitely be higher than NWT is reporting.

Abortion, Satan, and evil

I recently listened to this video from Fr. David Nix who interviewed a former high wizard, Zachary King, of the World Satanic Church. King explained how satanism is tied to abortion.


I only started listening to Fr. Nix in the last little while. His videos are excellent. They cover a range of topics, mostly bible teachings, but also interviews with others.

This talk was incredible. It was fantastic. But was it true? From the description of this interview with Zachary King:

"A former satanic high-wizard of the World Satanic Church converted and became a Traditional Latin Mass Catholic who now works for the end of abortion. Zachary King speaks about his conversion via the Miraculous Medal and we then walk back through Zachary’s life including his youth, entrance into Satan’s World Church, induction as High Wizard, B*hemian Grove, abortions and curses for the Bild*rb*rg Group and the involvement with Gates. We end with what Zachary is doing for the end of abortion (after committing so many himself.) This is an exceptional account of the love of Divine Mercy and an unlikely recruitment into “Mary’s Army” as he describes his new vocation."

I was mesmerized for almost two hours. But my doubts as to the authenticity of King's story caused me to ask myself this question: what is the greatest intrinsic evil in the world today? Clearly it is abortion. 

Then I thought about our prime minister Justin Trudeau, who is very pro-abortion but who calls himself a Catholic; who won't allow pro-life Canadian citizens to be a member of the Liberal party; who refuses government grants to pro-life groups; who took up the slack in the US when Trump stopped funding abortions in third world countries and gave more funding to these countries for abortion. 100,000 Canadian citizens killed in the womb each year, paid for by you and me. All evil actions coming from the reality of abortion in Canada.

And what other intrinsic evils emanate from abortion? Here are just a few from the US.

Fetal Trafficking Under Oath (from The Center for Medical Progress)

"For nearly five years, Planned Parenthood and their allies have breathlessly claimed to the public that Planned Parenthood and their business partners never sold fetal body parts from abortions, and that their fetal tissue research programs and late-term abortion practices are in total compliance with the law. When forced to testify under oath about these practices, Planned Parenthood and abortion industry witnesses tell a very different story from their public talking points about their fetal trafficking activities."

CHILD PREDATOR SCANDAL (from Jonathon Van Maren's podcast talking to Mark Crutcher who exposed body part selling, rapes, and trafficking in the abortion industry). From Crutcher's website:

"Our two- part investigation proves that the abortion industry, including the industry giants Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation, actively conceal statutory rape from parents and authorities."


"As this report will prove, it’s unlikely that there’s any other business in the country where a woman is as likely to be raped or sexually assaulted than in an abortion clinic. Together, the abortion lobby, politicians, and the media are trying to silence their screams and cover-up this epidemic – writing these women off as nothing more than collateral damage in their political war to keep abortion legal."

Abortion. Lies. Child predators. Rape. Can it get any more evil than all this? And who is the father of all lies and this kind of evil? Satan.

So...if we think this story of a grand wizard being heavily involved in abortions--and Satan, spells, big money, big names, big power, big egos--is too fantastic to be true, then all we need to do is ask ourselves is this final question. 

If those who publicly support, promote, and make profit from abortion; who sell baby parts for profit tand lie about it; who rape women and engage in child trafficking--if they can do all that--then Jeffrey King's story is totally 100% believable. Watch it. And make up your own mind.

Ontario out of province abortions for 2017

Last year I asked for this information from Ontario, and I don't think I ever posted their response.

"Can you please provide me with the number of abortions, and their cost, performed in 2017/2018 that were done outside of the province [of Ontario]: Broken down by province, or state, as the case may be."

Here is their response.

Note this comment from the Attorney General's office:

"RHBS and RMBS reciprocal agreement claims do not contain sufficient information to identify abortion services. Therefore there may be more abortion services were not captured  in this report."

Abortion will end because of our prayers

What a blessed day.

Maureen and I joined Fr. Tony and others today to pray to end abortion.

We also were able to go to St. Pat's Basilica for Mass and confession.

Whenever I see the persistence of faithful prayer warriors at the abortion site my heart is filled with hope that we will accomplish our goal.

Maureen took the pictures.

Canadian medical abortion numbers

Below find my chart of abortion totals for CIHI for 2018. I have added a 6th column to identify if a province publishes medical abortions. These medical abortion numbers are for early medical abortions and do not include the morning after pill.

Here is a link to a page that will allow you to access the individual provinces and their numbers. These numbers are all from Freedom of Information (FOI) requests I made to the individual provinces and territories.

I understand that medical abortions are not published in Canada anywhere else. If I am wrong about that please let me know.

Also note that CIHI does not report medical abortions.

Time to talk to Justin Trudeau again

''Injustice that is invisible inevitably becomes tolerable but Injustice that is visible inevitably becomes intolerable" Gregg Cunningham

Dear Justin Trudeau,

It's been a long time since we've talked. What I mean is, it's been a long time since I talked and you ignored me, but you know what I mean.

So today I thought I should talk to you again. And you can just ignore me again.

Anyway, recently I listened to the first podcast from the Pro-life Guys who work with CCBR. You remember CCBR? You once said that CCBR shouldn't receive government funds because they "oppose a woman's right" to kill her pre-born child.

(Each episode includes this quote from you. How exciting is that?)

It's a really great podcast. I think you should listen to it. Though I know you won't.

What's really great about this podcast, is that it explores and discusses pro-life apologetics. Why being pro-life is good and right. How abortion is illogical if you are a defender of human rights for all people, etc.
"We’re two guys who are passionate about ending the killing of pre-born children in Canada, and this is a podcast dedicated to giving you the tools you need to change minds and save lives from abortion. Join us as we discuss all the pro-choice justifications for abortion and share how we counteract them on the streets and talk to some of the leaders in the movement to hear their stories and learn from them!
I find it really heartening that there is a whole new generation of young people ready willing and able, to do this work. And they're really young. And they're really smart.
"We are too young to realize that certain things are impossible so we will do them anyway" William Wilberforce
Even though you've decided that CCBR can't receive tax dollars for the work they do, (unlike the millions and millions you give to those who kill pre-born children and to their supporters), these young people still do the work they do. That's called determination.

I wonder why Joyce Arthur and Fern Hill don't have a pro-choice apologetics podcast. They could call it the Pro-choice Girls. And they could defend their position on how a woman's (non-existent) right to kill a child she doesn't want, is a legitimate point of view. I bet you'd listen to that podcast eh Mr. Trudeau?

PEI abortion rates double in two years

CIHI notes in their published stats that:
"Induced abortions are not performed in clinics in Prince Edward Island."
Yet you can see from the chart below that Health PEI, not only reports abortions in PEI clinics, but that they report more abortions in clinics than in hospitals. According to the FOI I received from Health PEI, the clinic in question is the Women's Wellness Program & Sexual Health Services. It seems that Health PEI must be tracking these clinic abortions as hospital abortions. But there are also a few abortions being reported in a hospital setting.

Also medical abortions have been taking place since 2015 in PEI, albeit a very small number of them.

And as you can see, PEI Health's abortion numbers are quite different from CIHI's numbers.

The most troubling part of these numbers is that were more than twice as many abortions performed in 2019 (143) as were done in 2017 (67). Abortion rates (as reported by PEI Health) are clearly increasing.

Yukon abortion statistics 66% higher than reported by CIHI

CIHI is reporting less abortions than Yukon Health and Social Services. Probably two reasons for this:
1) CIHI doesn't report physician office/clinic's abortions and
2) CIHI doesn't report medical abortions.
Notice that in 2018 the Yukon performed 66% more abortions than reported by CIHI. In 2018 there were 48 medical abortions, and in 2019 there were 49 medical abortions as reported by Yukon Health.

The trend for medical abortions will just keep increasing. Very bad news for children in the womb.

502 Livebirth abortions in Canada from 2014 to 2018

Live birth abortions from Statistics Canada: Termination of pregnancy, affecting fetus and newborn [P96.4]

I've reported on these Stats Canada's livebirth abortions, and CIHI's livebirth abortions, many times before.

Stats Canada's and CIHI's livebirth abortion numbers are never the same. I've never been able to get an answer as to why their numbers are always different.

We still don't know why these late term abortions are born alive. We still don't know what happens to these little souls when it happens. We do know that they died because they are reported as a death by Stats Canada. Are these tiny humans held and comforted as they wait to die? Are they thrown into the garbage? How much do they suffer? Did anyone ask them what they wanted?

These livebirth abortions are shameful. They are a tragedy. And they continue to happen year after year.

Fetal pain during abortion is an ethical problem

Fetal pain during an abortion is a real thing. Recently I listened to an interview from Johnathon Van Maren with John C Bockmann, about his new research on fetal pain: Reconsidering fetal pain.

Three things of note about this research.

First, is that the two authors (Stuart WG Derbyshire and John C Bockmann) are on different sides of the abortion debate:
The two authors of this paper have very different views on the morality of abortion. One of us believes that abortion is necessary for women’s health and autonomy, while the other believes that abortion violates the ethical principle of non-maleficence and ought to be restricted and discouraged.
I'd say it's unusual to hear of a pro-choice person willing to collaborate with a pro-life person on abortion.

Second, is that most previous research on fetal pain believed that that the cortex was necessary for pain experience. There is new evidence to the contrary, and pain could be felt as early as 13 weeks gestation.
"Reports often suggest that the cortex and intact thalamocortical tracts are necessary for pain experience. Given that the cortex only becomes functional and the tracts only develop after 24 weeks, many reports rule out fetal pain until the final trimester. Here, more recent evidence calling into question the necessity of the cortex for pain and demonstrating functional thalamic connectivity into the subplate is used to argue that the neuroscience cannot definitively rule out fetal pain before 24 weeks."
"The most common surgical technique is dilatation and evacuation (D&E). In a D&E, the cervix is dilated, the amniotic fluid drained, and the fetus is removed in pieces via several surgical manoeuvres using grasping forceps. Again fetal death follows either direct feticide performed before the D&E or the trauma of the D&E results in the death of the fetus. We consider the possibility of fetal pain during these two procedures post-13 weeks’ gestation."
Canada performs D&E abortions. Thousands of them. Every year.

In 2018 Canadian doctors performed at least 2,076 D&E abortions according to CIHI. I say at least because CIHI only reports D&E abortions for those performed in hospitals. We do not know the numbers of these abortions performed in clinics. We also know that CIHI reported at least 3,002 hospital abortions done between 13 and 21+weeks gestation, with an additional 3,818 of unknown gestational ages. How many of those unknown gestational age abortions were done? We don't know.

(Once again the gestational ages of the clinic abortions are also not reported. Also the "gestational age" abortions are not in addition to the "type" of abortion; they are different ways of categorizing the same hospital abortions. But since D&E abortions are done from 13-24 weeks gestation, we must ask ourselves exactly what type of abortion this difference of 926 is made up of?

Third, regardless of the sheer number of how many D&E abortions are performed each year in Canada (and one is too many), shouldn't we also be concerned about the morality of the pain inflicted on the fetus? It is refreshing to see a pro-choice person care enough about fetal pain, as well as the morality of causing fetal pain, to undertake such research.
"We also agree that if fetal pain is likely then that has ethical and clinical significance independent of any views on the morality of abortion per se. That said, it is also clear to us that the issue of fetal pain has ethical significance because of abortion practices and not because of other surgical or therapeutic fetal procedures."
Thousands of Canadian children in the womb are pulled apart every year, limb by limb, without anesthesia, when it is very probable that they feel those limbs being crunched and ripped. Just imagine someone doing the same to you. That would be called barbaric.

Gaining insight into New Brunswick's abortion statistics

By Peter Ryan

(Peter Ryan was Executive Director of New Brunswick Right to Life from 1999 to 2016. He recently published his Memoir The God of Life Lives: A Memoir)

The following is an attempt to shed insight into New Brunswick abortion statistics for 2015-19, as compiled by Patricia Maloney.

Ever since the advent of legalized abortion in Canada in 1969, abortion has been anything but a settled issue in New Brunswick. In the early 2000’s, for instance, two of the main hospitals (in Moncton, Fredericton) stopped doing abortions. A third major hospital (Saint John) did few or no abortions for decades. On the other hand, two formerly Catholic hospitals (Bathurst and Francophone hospital in Moncton) began doing abortions.

These instances of institutional aversion to or acceptance of abortion reflected the drama of decisions by individual obstetrician-gynecologists at the different locations. They also reflected New Brunswick’s unusual and, in comparison to most provinces, more restrictive policy: Until 2015, Medicare only covered abortions if they were performed in a hospital by an obstetrician-gynecologist after being certified by two physicians as medically necessary.

That policy became a major issue in the 2014 provincial election. The victorious Liberal party under Brian Gallant campaigned on removing abortion barriers. In 2015 the rules requiring two doctor approval and an ob-gyn were annulled.

Interestingly, the in-a-hospital requirement remained. As a result, the private abortion clinic that has operated in Fredericton since 1994 (first by Henry Morgentaler, then since 2015 by a different owner) is the only one in Canada not publicly funded.

Statistically, the profile for many years – before 2015 - was that about 1,000 surgical abortions a year took place in the province: about 400 in hospitals, and about 600 in the private clinic. This meant an abortion rate of about 13-14 abortions per 100 live births, less than half the Canadian average.

In my judgment New Brunswick’s reduced abortion rate, more restrictive Medicare policy, and exclusion of funding for private clinics reflect a more pro-life social and political culture than elsewhere. That culture was likewise expressed for a number of years when one-third or more of the sitting Members of the Legislature, and coming from both of the main parties (Liberals and Conservatives) attended the annual March for Life in Fredericton.

The ground shifted in 2015, with newly elected premier Brian Gallant touting abortion as a “Charter right,” though it is not. Under government auspices, a new abortion “service” was soon opened at The Moncton Hospital. A provincial hotline was also set up to give women “access” at hospital sites.

Three hospitals were publicly identified as offering abortions: beside The Moncton Hospital, the Dumont Hospital in Moncton (serving Francophones), and the Chaleur in Bathurst. What was not publicly disclosed, and has just now come to light, was that, starting in 2015, the province's other five regional hospitals also began to perform a small number of abortions each year.

Predictably, hospital surgical abortions rose significantly in 2015, 2016 and 2017 according to provincial government figures: 560, 608 and 656, respectively. (1) An average increase of over 50% compared to the 400 per year previously.

The increase for 2015-17 is even greater according to Canadian Institute for Health Information stats: an average of 734 per year, an increase of over 84% from pre-2015 years.

I have no explanation for the discrepancy between NB’s health department stats and those of CIHI. One thing is clear: Public policy changes after the 2014 election had a dramatic impact on the loss of prenatal lives.

As one examines the stats for individual hospitals, one is struck by how The Moncton Hospital has become the dominant center for surgical abortions, with an average of 292 abortions a year from 2016-19.

In 2017 a new phenomenon emerged: “medical abortions,” referring to chemical or mifegymiso (containing RU-486) abortions. That year New Brunswick became the first province to offer free chemical abortions. The government reported 162 in 2017. (2)

Chemical abortion stats then surged hugely in 2018 and 2019: 520 and 704, respectively. At the same time, surgical abortions decreased to 522 and 405, respectively. (3)

What is so dismaying for pro-lifers is that the net total number of Medicare-funded abortions has, during the past two years, reached an annual average of 1,075, more than two and a half times the pre-2015 average.

To give an accurate provincial picture, we must also factor in surgical abortions at the private clinic in Fredericton. While no public stats are available, Clinic 554 says they performed about 1,000 from 2015-19, or about 200 a year. Assuming that information is correct, it would mean a total of about 1,275 NB abortions a year as of 2018 and 2019.

Consequently, comparing the 2018-19 average to the pre-2015 average of about 1,000 abortions, we find the annual provincial total has increased by about 28%. The provincial population increased by less than 4% between 2015 and 2019. This means the lives of preborn children in New Brunswick have become significantly more at risk.

The NB abortion stats compiled for 2015-19 reveal one more newsworthy fact. The provincial government data includes gestational ages of abortions at five of the 8 main hospitals. What is striking is that, from 2015-18, the hospitals in Saint John and Fredericton (Chalmers) seemed to take turns specializing in second trimester abortions, whereas the other three hosptials listed did first-trimester procedures.

In 2015 and 2018 Saint John did a total of 14 abortions at an average age of 16.8 weeks; in 2016 and 2017 Fredericton did a total of 20 at an average age of 16.3. Whereas at the other three hospitals the average age for 2015-18 was 9.3 weeks.

The significantly higher average fetal age of abortions at two previously undisclosed locations is startling in light of complaints repeatedly made in recent years by abortion rights activists that Medicare-funded abortions were not available in hospitals at 14 weeks or more gestation, whereas, they argued, Clinic 554 did them up to 16 weeks but women were forced to pay. The newly published data reveal that, in truth, the hospital system had, since 2015 and without general public knowledge, acquiesced to those complaints, performing abortions up to and past 16 weeks.

Elected in 2018, the government of Blaine Higgs has stood firm against funding the private abortion clinic in Fredericton, despite pressure from the federal government. That pressure has included the withholding of $140,000 in health transfer funds due to NB’s policy.

The abortion situation in New Brunswick continues to be unsettled. In late 2019 Clinic 554 announced that due to lack of public funding they will be forced to close down. The building was put up for sale, though its operations continue in the meantime. How a closure would affect the profile of future hospital abortions remains to be seen.

The safety of preborn babies in New Brunswick has much deteriorated since 2014, reflected in markedly higher abortion numbers. The fact that all eight main hospitals have become involved in abortion, as opposed to two previously, is alarming.

What is especially shocking is how the number of “medical” (chemical) abortions has spiked, even after a new government not known for friendliness to abortion rights took office. Pro-lifers have always tended to focus greatly on the problem of surgical abortions. In the future more attention deserves to be given to chemical abortions, while not ignoring the plight of any preborn child.

On a positive note, New Brunswick’s life-friendly social culture has not greatly eroded. A poll by Narrative Research in February, 2020 found that two-thirds of residents oppose tax-funded abortion on demand.

(1) These totals do no include cases where a hospital performed 5 or fewer abortions.

(2) The government says mifegymiso is for pregnancies up to 7 weeks.

(3) That figure refers to government data; CIHI stats are not yet available for both of those years.

Nunavut doesn't track abortion statistics based on doctor's billing records

My FOI from Department of Health, Government of Nunavut yielded this:
"The doctors in Nunavut are paid a daily wage based on the area they work in. Doctors are paid a daily rate and they see as many patients as they are booked for-regardless of the service that is requested."

Nova Scotia's abortion numbers higher than CIHI

Nova Scotia's abortion numbers for 2015-2019 from Nova Scotia Health and Wellness.

Along with higher numbers reported using doctor's billing records than CIH reports, it also looks like Nova Scotia's abortion numbers are going up with the use of medical abortions. See jump in 2019.

Peter MacKay's dumpster fire campaign

All Conservatives should listen to my friend Jonathon Van Maren's excellent analysis of the leadership campaign the Culture Wars Episode 15: Why I think Leslyn Lewis is the best choice for next leader of the Conservative Party

His conclusions are spot on. If Peter MacKay wins, social conservatives will have no place in the Conservative Party. We will be done. MacKay makes no bones at how much he disdains us with when he stupidly said he considers social conservatives are a stinking albatross around Andrew Scheer's neck.

The thing is, we stinking albatrosses, actually make up a good chunk of the Conservative party. Without us supporting the Conservatives, their chances of defeating the Liberals in the next election would be very difficult, if even possible.

Jonathon's entire podcast should be listened by everyone considering how to vote, as he explains his reasons for his ranked choices.

1) Leslyn Lewis
2) Derek Sloan
3) Erin O'toole
4) Peter Mackay

I will be voting the same way.

Huge difference between NPDB and CIHI abortion numbers

I continue to try and understand why the accuracy of abortion statistics in this country are so pathetic. I contacted CIHI to get more clarifications about their numbers.

As we already know CIHI's data sources are here:

1. Discharge Abstract Database, Canadian Institute for Health Information.
2. National Ambulatory Care Reporting System, Canadian Institute for Health Information.
3. National Physician Database NPDB (here), Canadian Institute for Health Information.
4. Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec.
5. Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living.
6. Induced abortion clinics in Newfoundland and Labrador, Saskatchewan and British Columbia.

When I compared the numbers in the National Physician Database (number 3 above) I learned that these numbers are very different from CIHI's quick stats (which is what everyone uses for yearly abortion numbers).

So I asked CIHI to explain the difference between the two sets of numbers, since the quick stats use a bunch of sources, and the NPDB uses only one source? 

Here is the response I received from CIHI:
"CIHI’s annual induced abortion tables report on abortion volumes in Canada. It includes data on hospital-based abortions submitted to national databases (e.g. DAD, NACRS), in addition to clinic data that is voluntarily provided to CIHI. These tables also include NPDB data as a source for Ontario to estimate the volume of non-hospital abortions.
The NPDB annual release includes NPDB data only, with the goal of national reporting on payments to physicians and services provided. The “utilization” data tables that report service volumes are based on fee-for-service data only. Services provided under alternative forms of reimbursement (e.g. salary and capitation) are not included.
In addition, different methodologies are used to identify abortion volumes between the two reports (Canadian Classification of Health Interventions, CCI, for hospitalization data, vs Fee for service billing codes in NPDB).
Given these differences, there will be expected differences in volumes."
In other words, the NPDB uses fee for services numbers only. And different (undefined) methodologies are used. I've asked what these methodologies are.

Shouldn't fee for service data be more accurate? Why isn't it? Why do they need to obtain the data from so many different places? Then have to use methodologies to get something resembling accurate stats? Why not just make the reporting for abortions performed mandatory and insist every province provide that info?

One can only imagine the gyrations CIHI goes through to come to numbers that they hope to, but never actually achieve, be accurate.

Pro-abortions use tax dollars to lobby against pro-life Charter rights

Should a charity that receives millions of dollars in taxpayer funded grants, be in the business of advocating for the repeal of Charter rights of pro-life organizations?

(Pro-life organizations receive $0 in taxpayer funded grants.)

This is what Sandeep Prasad of Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights is trying to do. He wants to take away our Charter right to protest abortion.
"Every May, anti-choice protesters arrive in Ottawa for the "March for Life" -- the largest demonstration against the right to choose. 
This year, COVID-19 has cancelled this in-person event, like many others. But what will it take to cancel the "March for Life" for good?"
Since April when I last wrote about this pro-abortion organization, I learned that this goup received an additional $11 million dollars in new grant money. This brings their total grant money to date to over $14 million.

(It's not the first time this group has had a campaign against pro-life people. See also here and here).

(Notice the large discrepancy between what the government reports as grants to them, VS what they reported to CRA.)

Action Canada also has almost $2.5 Million in assets, including almost $1.5 million in the bank. Not bad.

Salaries for the people who advocate for abortion in this so-called "non-profit" are pretty lucrative as you can see.

Full statements for Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights here:

These people eat a steady diet of going after pro-life groups. And they can do it because they receive millions of dollars in funding from Canadian taxpayers, including pro-life people.

Stop giving grants to Pride parades

Canada gives a lot of our money to the LGBTQ / pride parade lobby. In Sept 2019 I wrote that we gave a total of $32,339,221 to this lobby.

Now I find out that new grants are actually still being given to Pride parades. During a world wide pandemic.

Since we are all in lockdown with the CCPvirus, wouldn't it make sense to close down the Pride parades as well? Will the federal government stop the flow of money to them? Apparently not. Since April 2020, while the world has been in lockdown; while all of our churches are shuttered, Canadian tax dollars continue to flow to Pride parades. Pride parades that cannot and will not happen. To the tune of $385,800.

I have a suggestion for Justin Trudeau. Revoke these grants. Instead send the money to our long term care facilities where most of these deaths are occurring. They could really use it.

BC abortion numbers vary from CIHI numbers

I've received total numbers of abortions from British Columbia Health for the past five years.

The first chart below has these totals, together with CIHI's totals. You can see that from 2015 to 2017, BC's totals are less than CIHI's totals. In 2014 and 2018, BC's totals are more than CIHI's totals.

The second chart gives additional surcharge services for two of the codes. So I did not include those services into the totals.

BC does include medical abortions. These numbers go up every year.

Pro-abortion violence never takes a break

It is a well known fact the the pro-abortions are violent against pro-life people. It is also a well know fact that the police are no friends to pro-life people. If I had to ask myself why this is so, I would say the pro-aborts get their marching orders from leading pro-aborts, like Justin Trudeau and other politicians like Jim Watson who discriminate against us at every possible turn.

Need more information on this? Read on.

Reprinted with permission from Alliance for Life Ontario.

Now here is the Thing…..
Here is the story as recounted to me regarding what I define as an assault at a 40 days for Life Vigil in Ontario.
There were five of us standing at the vigil site, keeping 10 feet in between each of us. Two young women and a man (mid twenties, all of them) drive up in a car. They came out with a roll of paper, came up to us and said that we were “f**** ridiculous” and how dare we stand there, so they were going to block us. 
I replied, oh let me move my box for you and then instructed those with me to go to the various corners. She said, “What, you’re going to just keep moving?” I replied yes and she says “Well we’ll follow you.” I said, that’s fine. They rolled out their paper in front of me and I (stupidly, I know I shouldn’t have.) I didn’t even think walked up, placed my arms over it and held my sign in front of it (my arms were pushing the paper down). She told me to stop touching their property, so I lifted my hands up so that I wasn’t touching it, but my sign was still able to be read in front of it. 
She came up to me and slapped my face and pushed me away. As I was taking out my phone to take pictures and call the police, she grabbed my sign and hit me with it and then grabbed my phone from me and threw it. I went and got it and she fought me over it again, but I kept it. She hit me with the roll from the paper and was yelling at me that she didn’t care if I posted about it on social media. I responded that I was calling the police and then they left. 
The police say that their [perpetrators] reports, which were similar but not identical, showed that they didn’t go over the story together first, say that I ripped up their paper (here the officer inserts, “which was ripped”) and got up into her face so she pushed me away and then I put my camera in her face so she knocked it down the hill. 
The officer said that because it’s a controversial issue, things are bound to escalate and because I engaged with them by getting in their face (despite me telling her I didn’t) things like this can’t go to court. It’s a matter of he says, she says, so that’s that. “I got a call from the officer that came out when that woman slapped me; here’s what she said: 
They aren’t pressing charges because they say that I ripped up their paper and got into her face with my cell phone and she only pushed me out of her way and threw my cell phone because it was in her face. 
Also, because of the type of situation, it being so controversial it makes people react more, which of course doesn’t excuse it, but that is how it goes. The officer says that it’s a case of he says, she says, so there really isn’t any point moving forward. She’s says if even if I want to press charges, she won’t. They do have a written report so if she ever does anything again, she’ll be red flagged.”
So there is the story and I would like to make a couple of observations. In the same city within a couple of weeks either side of this incident a passenger on a bus slapped the driver and a customer at a grocery store spat on a worker – both incidents had details but also images that the police could use to identify the person and verify what happened. Charges have been made and are pending in both these cases because of the images together with the details provided by witnesses. Going back to the vigil incident – the woman was found because a photo was taken of the departing car which got the number plate – there were also 4 witnesses at the vigil who can verify our pro-lifer’s account but apparently were not trusted to tell the “Truth”.
However, it seems that because of the controversial nature of abortion we are to expect that “people react more”? Maybe that is true but I for one do not expect the police to react less. These folks drove to the vigil site intentionally and also intentionally endeavoured to”block” the pro-life message, used foul language and allegedly assaulted a young pro-life woman. I absolutely believe the account above and really wonder how police 50 years ago took witness statements and details and followed up with charges, minus the “images’ so readily available today which seem to mean everything?!!!! I shake my head that “there really isn’t any point moving forward” and charges would not be laid by police even if the victim wants them.
What this tells me is that the police no longer find pro-life Canadians credible witnesses or appear to doubt that anyone would actually tell the truth in this particular case, because of abortion’s controversial nature. Charges will not be pressed as it seems we are to expect people to react more in this circumstance – our only recourse is to have a video of the act itself. Now forgive the pun but that really seems like a “cop out” to me.
I know that I do not need to remind the pro-lifers in this province about the fact that we have 8 “bubble zones” around specific abortion facilities – well do you know how that came about? Claims were made by abortion staff in Ottawa that a pro-lifer had spat upon a couple as they entered the facility. Just for your information – no video, no image just claims or allegations that this had happened. Those allegations were enough to get the Mayor of Ottawa to contact the Attorney General of Ontario and set in motion, at a pace greater than the speed of light, the legislation “safe access zones”that unconstitutionally, bars pro-life witness outside these facilities within certain specific parameters. What is also amazing was that a report had been published a few months earlier saying that “harrassment” at abortion facilities “was rare” in Canada. So let us recap – claims of someone spitting on someone entering an abortion facility were enough to have draconian and unconstitutional legislation drawn up, debated and passed before you could say “”EH”. Even with evidence from the pro-abortion side that harassment was rare. I would remind you of the fact that we had already and still have laws to cover any assault of this kind if it had indeed happened outside the abortion facility.
One cannot help thinking that if you are pro-abortion your claims or allegations will be taken seriously even without “images”. However as a pro-life Canadian it is just “he says she says” and by the way get ready because people react more because abortion is controversial! We cannot nor should we stand for this in 2020.
I would like to end this piece with a story from my early days at the Scott abortion facility in Toronto where we used to go once a week. There was a particularly obnoxious facility “guard” who decided as I was alone at the time (my colleague was using the washroom) he would taunt me. He came out of the facility with a billboard with caricatures of pro-lifers on it and got right into my face asking me which one was me. He was a good 6 inches taller than me and he leaned down to me, I could feel his breath on my face and inside my heart was beating wildly, but I looked at him and said “does your mother know this is how you treat women?” It was the first thing that came into my head and it stunned him because he went back inside the facility. Needless to say the two police officers present at the time did absolutely nothing to come to my defense.
I am not really blaming the police then or now because they also have to work in an insane politically correct world. However, whether you are pro-abortion or pro-life your claims should be taken seriously with or without images and people should not be excused for violent behaviour because we and apparently the police expect them to react more when it is a controversial issue.
