Developing and improving the skills of young people to learn about killing other people

The death industry is really about money. Clearly it's cheaper to kill people than to give them health care, palliative care, home care, mental health care, etc. It's about saving money, and in some cases, it's even about making money. 

For example, Dying with Dignity

In 2021 they received $1,653,893 in donations (why would anyone donate to these people anyway?). They actually had $8,000,000 in the bank that year. And they received $204,655 from the federal government in FY 2021. Why any company should receive grant money when they have this kind of money in the bank is beyond me.

But that wasn't enough. They also received two government grants from the Canada Summer jobs program for 2020 and 2021. To get this money, employers must:

"demonstrate that they are providing quality work experiences for youth that provide opportunities to develop and improve their skills." (emphasis added)

They have ten employees. Check out their salaries:

1 person earns $1 to $39,999

5 people earn $40,000 to $79,999

3 people earn $80,000 to $119,999

and the winner is...the one person who earns $160,000 to $199,999. 

Charity Intelligence who rates charities for donors (and not for the charities) gives DWD a 1 star rating (out of 5 stars). For each 

"dollar donated, after overhead costs of fundraising and admin/management (excluding surplus) 36 cents are available for programs."

That's a lot of overhead.

As Canada kills more and more of their undesirable people, I predict we will see this company do better and better financially.

Dear Mr. Unit, well no, it isn't of any assistance

My letter to Minister Marco Mendicino was answered (well sort of). By someone called Public Correspondence Unit.

As you can see, the letter didn't address any of my concerns. But it did inform me that under section 12 of the CSIS Act, their mandate is:

"to investigate and advise the Government of Canada as defined in section 2 and are limited to terrorism, espionage, sabotage and foreign interference."

So pro-life people are now terrorists, spies and saboteurs? Good grief.

Then this: 

"Should you be unsatisfied with this [non] response you may contact the National Security Intelligence Review Agency (NSIRA). "

Good idea.

Canada kills 1,913+ children by barbaric abortion procedure

Imagine if someone pulled off one of your arms, then a second arm, then a leg, then a second leg. Then crushed your head. This is what a D&E abortion is.

In 2020 alone, there were at least 1,913 of these dilation and extraction abortions in Canada (based on CIHI for 2020, Tab 7). A you can see form the chart, this number only represents those D&E abortions performed in hospitals, and not in clinics. This means that there could be double to triple this number of D&E abortions, since clinics don't report these abortions to CIHI. (This estimate is based on the fact that in Ontario, there are twice as many abortions done in clinics as in hospitals).



According to a pro-abortion extremist, there are at least 20 facilities that perform abortions D&E abortions in Canada, all the way up to 24 weeks. 

At 24 weeks gestation a child can live outside the womb.

Below are two videos of what a second trimester surgical abortion looks like. The first is the testimony of an ultrasound technician who was present at the abortion. The second is from Dr. Kathi Aultman a former abortion doctor.

These three facilities all provide abortions up until 24 weeks.

"Ideologically motivated violent extremism threats such as anti-abortion groups"

Dear Mr. Marco Mendicino,

I was greatly disturbed by reading this article, in today's National Post. In particular regarding this paragraph:

CSIS breaks down IMVE into four categories of violence: xenophobic (like white supremacy, neonazis), anti-authority (anti-government, such as Jan. 6, 2021, storming of the U.S. Capitol), gender-driven (like Incels or violent misogyny) and “other grievance-driven” threats (such as violent environmental or anti-abortion groups).

Having been closely involved in the pro-life movement in Canada for over 14 years, and knowing many many many pro-life persons, I can assure you that pro-life people in Canada are one of the most peaceful prayerful and joyful groups of people you will ever meet. To single us out as a "threat" is not only totally untrue, it is extremely disrespectful to millions of Canadians. 

To label pro-life people as "Ideologically motivated violent extremism" and a "threat" is an insidious lie perpetuated by those who despise us for our beliefs that human life is precious from the moment of conception until natural death. This lie is subsequently repeated over and over again by politicians and the media.

Have you ever attended the annual March for Life where thousands and thousands of us peacefully March in Ottawa, and other Canadian cities? Or the annual 40 days for life vigils where we pray outside abortion clinics? Or the annual Life Chain where we quietly pray on street corners? If you have ever done so, I challenge you to tell all Canadians about what you witness there. There is never violent extremism and we are never a threat to anyone.

I can tell you though, that there are pro-choice people who are violent towards us. As Canada's top security agency have you investigated these people? If you haven't then I suggest you start. I guarantee you that if you reach out to the pro-life people whom you vilify and call violent extremists and a threat, you will uncover years of abuse, violence and extreme behaviour towards us.

The lies about pro-life people are so rampant that even our Prime Minister believes them. He has threatened to revoke charitable status to crisis pregnancy centres and other pro-life groups who he said in his 2019 election platform:

"In 2021, women’s rights should not be up for debate. Yet the Conservatives want to roll back abortion access.
Meanwhile, anti-choice organizations are actively working to spread misinformation about abortion, putting the health and safety of young people and vulnerable women at risk.
 
Provide up to $10 million to Health Canada to develop an easily accessible portal that provides accurate, judgement-free, and evidence-based information on sexual and reproductive health and rights, which will include a section that counters misinformation about abortion.
 
No longer provide charity status to anti-abortion organizations (for example, Crisis Pregnancy Centres) that provide dishonest counseling to women about their rights and about the options available to them at all stages of the pregnancy." (emphasis added)

The Prime Minister has yet to produce any evidence regarding his smears about this "misinformation about abortion" and "dishonest counseling to women". That is because he has no evidence. This is just one more example of the lies perpetuated by people who do not believe what we believe.

So please Mr. Mendicino, either remove pro-life people from your definition of threats of violent extremism, or tell us where we have been violently extreme. You, the media, politicians, and the government--may not like what we stand for. That is your prerogative. But please don't lump us in with white supremacist and neonazis because you don't like us.

Sincerely,
Patricia Maloney

Letter to my MP on supporting people not killing them

Dear Mona Fortier MP,

I was very troubled by a letter written in the National Post today regarding MAID. I am asking that you, as my representative in Parliament, bring my concerns to the Prime Minister regarding MAID.

Instead of killing people, we should be able to provide every single Canadian who wants palliative care, to receive it. Palliative care should be deemed an essential service, available to everyone.

We should be able to provide every single Canadian who needs to see a psychiatrist, the ability to see one. 

If there are people who cannot afford to live anymore because of disabilities (we've heard of many tragic cases like this) and so instead opt for MAID, we need to help them.

Canada spends billions of dollars every year on groups to promote abortion, LGBT and other progressive ideologies. Could we not divert some of those dollars to helping people get the care they need so they don't have to resort to MAID?

It is morally wrong to kill human beings. It is morally right to help them. It really is very simple.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Patricia Maloney

Talking about the ethics of abortion is not allowed

A while ago there was a radio show called the Ethics Lab. It was a weekly radio show that explored ethical issues from 2016 to 2021.

The show discussed the ethics of all manner of topics. But I never heard the topic of abortion discussed. In fact, I couldn't think of a more likely candidate for a discussion on ethics. So I emailed the host and asked him if he would do a show on the ethics of abortion. 

His response was this:
I doubt that we'll address the abortion question anytime soon. I have very unsettled views about it and I'm not sure what we could add to the discussion on that topic in our short segment...”
What an odd answer. Can't add to the discussion? Why not? The show's purpose was to talk about ethical situations, why not abortion? It's because people who support abortion really really don't want to discuss the ethics of it because this leads into very uncomfortable territory. Conscience territory. Squirming territory.

Pro-choice people far prefer the world of euphemistic slogans, none of which make any sense, never mind, not being true. “My body my choice” (no, the fetus is not your body), “A woman's right to choose” (the standard never finishing the sentence tactic thinking nobody is going to notice), “Abortion is healthcare” (killing a child in the womb is never healthcare for the child being killed), etc.

Then there was this story from actress Anne Hathaway on the View who when talking about abortion said this:
"This is not a moral conversation about abortion, this is a practical conversation about women's rights and by the way human rights. Because women's rights are human rights.... Abortion can be another word for mercy."

Although Hathaway immediately discounts any moral discussion about abortion, she does actually use the word "moral", which I thought was interesting -- a pro-choice person using the word moral and abortion in the same discussion. 

Of course abortion is a moral conversation. Just like murder is a moral conversation and rape is a moral discussion. Yes,women's rights are human rights but pre-born rights are also human rights. And abortion is never merciful to the child being killed.

So that is what we have come to as a society. We cannot talk about the ethics or morality of abortion. If we did, people's conscience might get in the way.

Discriminatory bubble zone law 'not in the public interest'

The charges against Fr. Tony have been dropped. Good. But they never should have happened in the first place.

'Bubble zone' law constitutionally challenged

“Our position is the legislation is such a serious Charter breach that it should never have been available to prosecute a man in his 80s peacefully carrying out his priestly duties, and protesting legislation that effectively amounts to anti-blasphemy laws,” Polizogopoulos said. “Just its attempt to outlaw ‘discouraging language’ on a public street in the nation’s capital — or anywhere in Canada — seems to exemplify what the courts have defined as legal overreach.” ... 

..."On the day he was arrested four years ago, Van Hee was deemed to be within the 50 metre legal “bubble zone” around the Morgentaler clinic on Bank Street.He held signs that read: “The Primacy of Free Speech: Cornerstone of Western Civilization” and “Without Free Speech the State is a Corpse.” 

He was subsequently charged with intimidation or attempted intimidation. The single initial charge was later dropped and replaced by two charges of “inform(ing) or attempt(ing) to inform a person concerning issues related to abortion services, by any means, including oral, written or graphic means,” and “perform(ing) or attempt(ing) to perform an act of disapproval concerning issues related to abortion services, by any means.”"

Fr. Tony's charges were a witch hunt. I have been with Fr. Tony when he holds that sign--a sign that does not even mention abortion. Charged with 'intimidation or attempted intimidation' is a joke. Fr. Tony is the least intimidating person I have ever met. He surely did not 'inform anyone concerning issues relating to abortion'. How could he? He never speaks to anyone about abortion when he sits there quietly holding his sign, and his sign said nothing about abortion.

In fact, if a person of the pro-choice variety, with purple hair and a ring through their nose and carrying the same sign, they would never have been arrested. Fr. Tony was arrested because he was a Catholic priest protesting the freedom of speech that this law violates. Everyone knows Fr. Tony is pro-life, so that just ticked off another of the check boxes that makes him a perfect a scapegoat for this Charter violation law that only targets pro-life people most of whom are Catholics or Evangelical Christians.

Fr. Tony's Charter Challenge against this discriminatory law goes ahead. Thank God for that.

Praying for pre-born Canadians during 40 Days for Life

As Catholics we are pro-life. As members of the human race, we are pro-life. I can't really think of anything more important than standing up for the rights of the pre-born.

Each of us can do what we can in this regard. Some of us write about abortion. Some of us advocate for changes to abortion laws. Some of us engage in all kinds of abortion activism to change the hearts of the people around us.

You might say: "But I have no special talents, there's nothing I can do to change abortion". But that is not true. Each and every Christian can do something very important, something very fundamental against the powers and principalities that are at the diabolical roots of the evil of abortion. Because that is what this is really about. 

Each and every one of us can pray to end abortion in Canada. Even better than that, each and every one of us can spend some time praying in front of an abortion clinic to end abortion.

If enough of us do this, even if we are not a writer, or not an activist, or not an orator, we can spend an hour or two witnessing for pre-born children during 40 days for life. All it takes is a bit of our time, and a bit of courage. It's really really simple.

Imagine this. That every Catholic would go to an abortion clinic, or to a hospital where abortions are committed, during 40 days for life. And there, pray a Rosary. To witness for our children in the womb and ask our blessed Mother to protect them. We can change the culture. Miracles can happen. We can do this.

They can make laws to try and stop us from praying. They can and have done this. But they can't stop us from praying.

Sibling abortions, medical abortions, abortions > 14 weeks

I asked for, and received, abortion data for four Ontario regions: Hamilton, Ottawa, Peel and Toronto, for three years: 2019, 2020 and 2021. The data is for both hospitals and non-hospital settings. It is broken down by year within each city, and by abortion code.

While every abortion is a tragic reality, I am always struck by the particular evil of fetal reduction abortions (code P054). How does anyone even decide to do this? You have two children growing inside your womb, and you make the decision to kill one of them. How do you decide which child to kill? When the remaining alive child grows up, do you tell her that you killed her sister? Fetal reduction abortions:

  • There were 36 of these sibling abortions in Ottawa during these three years.
  • There were 401 of these sibling abortions in Toronto during these three years.

Then there are the > 14 weeks gestation abortions (code S785):

  • Hamilton performed 462 of these abortions during these three years.
  • Ottawa performed 598 of these abortions during these three years.
  • Peel performed 217 of these abortions during these three years.
  • Toronto performed 3,122 of these abortions during these three years.

Medical abortions seem to be increasing every year (Code A920). I guess this should not be a surprise:

  • Hamilton performed 2,497, 2,985, and 3,200 for each year = 8,682
  • Ottawa performed 1,667, 1,745, and 1,781 for each year = 5,193
  • Peel performed 621, 2,265, 3,644 for each year = 6,530
  • Toronto performed 8,035, 7,635 and 7,660 for each year - 23,330

S752 - induced - by any surgical technique up to and including 14 weeks gestation 
S785 - induced - by any surgical technique after 14 weeks of gestation
A920A - MEDICAL MANAGEMENT OF EARLY PREGNANCY - INITIAL VISIT (medical abortions)
P001A - MEDICAL MGMT FETAL DEMISE BETWEEN 14-20 WKS GESTATION
P054A - selective fetal reduction of one or more fetuses by intracardiac potassium chloride injection
S770A - CORPUS UTERI - HYSTEROTOMY.
S783A - CORPUS UTERI - HYSTEROTOMY WITH TUBAL INTERRUPTION.

Charity that receives millions in government funding is maliciously attacking other charities

"Crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) are anti-abortion organizations disguised as clinics that provide counseling and other prenatal services. They often provide inaccurate information about abortion or pregnancy options...[Action Canada isCreating a new social marketing campaign to counter the misinformation of these Crisis Pregnancy Centres" (emphasis added)

The pro-abortion Action Canada for Sexual and Reproductive Rights have raked in at least $15,161,401 since 2020 in Federal government grants to do their nasty work. I say at least, because they will also receive some of a $19,638,400 grant to Oxfam Canada. How much, we don't know.

And they also have the nerve to look for more money in the form of donations, to further their malevolent endeavours.

"Yes! I will help put a stop to fake abortion clinics in Canada"

Revenue Canada needs to investigate this hateful behaviour. In fact maybe the ones who should have their charitable status revoked, is Action Canada for Sexual and Reproductive Rights.

Jericho walk to end abortion

The Montfort Hospital in Ottawa does abortions and I suspect they are late term abortion because of the higher cost. I received this information from my recent FOI request to the Quebec Health department:

I missed the Jericho walk on Saturday because we weren't in Ottawa. (Maureen did a fine job of capturing that walk).

So this morning I decided to do my own Jericho walk around the Montfort hospital. I prayed a Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet to end abortion at this hospital. I didn't do it seven times like one is supposed to. It just means I will have to do it six more times.

Perhaps we should consider doing a Jericho walk around all of our hospitals to end abortion.

When politicians make sense

I have come to the realization that most politicians say things that will either make me roll my eyes or cause me to yell at the computer/tv/radio when I hear them speak. This is especially true of one politician who shall remain nameless.

Of course there are some exceptions to this general principle I will call the trustworthy index of politicians, but the exception I am talking about today is MP Leslyn Lewis. 

I receive her emails every day. Even though I don't read them all (I've already decided I am voting for her), my husband does read them. He is forever telling me how thoughtful these emails are. That they make a whole lot of sense. They do. As far as I can make out, Dr. Lewis is very unlike other politicians. 

You can read yesterday's email here: It is about Faith and science. I've included Dr. Lewis's whole statement below. If you don't read the whole thing, please read the highlighted parts. 

This statement does not make me roll my eyes. It does not make me yell at my computer. It speaks the truth. From a politician. What a concept.

"Are you a person of faith?

Or are you a person of science?

Or maybe like me, you feel like those words don’t mean what they used to anymore.

Faith has been popularly defined as “the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen.” This definition which is based on faith and a belief in God, has now been adopted by governments to get people to buy into policies.

In some cases when we are confronted with catastrophes, plagues or even a pandemic, we have to put our trust in a solution that may not have been fully tested or explained  — that’s faith.

Faith has often been confused with science. I am a social scientist, and stay away from making pronouncements in the area of natural science. But it isn’t hard to recognize that natural science has turned to beliefs that are also based on faith.

Claims like “trust the science” are actually displays of faith rather than confidence in the scientific method. The scientific method requires a hypothesis and rigorous testing. Science is not trusted, it is tested.

The past two years have been frustrating for those among us who like to ask questions in order to have a better understanding about what is going on around them. Questions were mocked, ridiculed, demonized and people were out-right silenced for asking simple questions about COVID or even vaccines. In my training as a lawyer whenever I encountered an aggressive, bullying person my instincts told me they were hiding something. Coercion always put me on alert that something wasn’t right.

At the beginning of the pandemic, we were all happy to “get vaccinated” in order to protect our neighbours, grandparents, and the vulnerable in society. Any scientist who spoke the truth that the COVID vaccine is a tool to reduce hospital burden by minimizing the symptoms - but it would not completely prevent contracting or spreading COVID - was vilified, de-platformed and ostracized as a dangerous  conspiracy theorist.

Canadians turned against their family members refusing to see them by falsely believing that vaccinated people were immune from getting COVID. Friends and coworkers yelled at colleagues to “GET VACCINATED”.  People threw down one of the major tenets of our medical system – privacy, and started divulging their vaccination status, even peer pressured into posting pictures of themselves getting vaccinated on social media. When you met someone for the first time, they often told you their vaccination status before they told you their name. And people like me were punished for insisting that we can be safe without violating the foundations of our democracy including the right to medical privacy and free and informed consent.

I accepted my punishment by not receiving a critic/shadow cabinet position even though all I had to do was simply disclose my vaccination status. I refused because I believe that my principles were worth more to me than any position. And as I watched the illogical madness around me, I refused to be dragged into a system headed for segregation and erosion of our fundamental values. I said “I will stand for my convictions — cost it what it may!"

The past few years have been based on faith, not in any deity, but in government. So many people never questioning information presented by both elected and unelected officials.

Government has seen how well this blind allegiance to faith works with policy. Now we must ask ourselves whether we will remain silent while our government:

  • implements environmental policies that have little or no connection with reducing emissions;
  • enters into international agreements that diminish our sovereignty, reduce farming capacity, and curtail the development of our natural resources; or
  • implements health and vaccine passes that could easily be programmed to integrate with other aspects of our lives and encroach on things that we once thought personal. 

We need to end this style of government where politicians demand absolute trust and blind faith to their policies - while they demonize those who ask questions. We need to wake up and recognize that every time a politician labels something a conspiracy theory it’s often to avoid answering your question; and unfortunately, it’s often to hide the fact that they are outright lying to you!

It’s time we had politicians who showed a little faith in the people they are supposed to serve, and that requires that we end this era of intellectual darkness and blind faith and allegiance to the politicians and bureaucrats who underestimate our intelligence."

National Abortion Federation never reported Kermit Gosnell's clinic and now receives Canadian tax dollars

This story is frightening: Kermit Gosnell killed women and children. Ann McElhinney did a six part podcast on this real life horror story.

Kermit Gosnell was a serial killer, a major drug dealer, a fraudster, a liar and who knows what else. Not only did he kill women and snip the necks of born children, he taught his non-medical staff to provide copious amounts of drugs to women (illegally) before their abortions. He also taught them how to kill the babies. His staff would do this when Gosnell wasn't present, as he usually didn't come to work until the evening. That's when Gosnell did the very late abortions himself.

Here is the grand jury report on this story, 281 pages detailing all manner of evil.

The report details how numerous agencies and health professionals ignored/did nothing regarding this house of horrors when they should have. In particular:

  • Department of Health lawyers at the Pennsylvania Department of State
  • The Philadelphia Department of Public Health
  • Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and its subsidiary, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center
  • Centers for Disease Control
  • Fellow doctors
  • The National Abortion Federation
A few quotes from the report:
"We discovered that Pennsylvania’s Department of Health has deliberately chosen not to enforce laws that should afford patients at abortion clinics the same safeguards and assurances of quality health care as patients of other medical service providers. Even nail salons in Pennsylvania are monitored more closely for client safety... Most appalling of all, the Department of Health’s 138 neglect of abortion patients’ safety and of Pennsylvania laws is clearly not inadvertent: It is by design."

"The problem with the Departments of State and Health is not that they lacked authority to end the crime spree that Gosnell and his staff passed off as practicing medicine. The problem is that the state overseers preferred not to exercise their authority. They chose to look the other way.'"

"Supervisors in the Division of Disease Control ignored a nurse’s disturbing report about conditions in Gosnell’s clinic in 2008 and 2009." 

"The Philadelphia Health Department’s Environmental Engineering Section failed to follow through after receiving a complaint in 2003 about aborted fetuses stored in an employee refrigerator."

"FELLOW DOCTORS WHO OBSERVED THE RESULTS OF GOSNELL’S RECKLESS AND CRIMINAL PRACTICES FAILED TO REPORT HIM TO AUTHORITIES."

"After reviewing extensive and compelling evidence of criminal wrongdoing at the clinic, the Grand Jury has issued a presentment recommending the prosecution of Gosnell and members of his staff for criminal offenses including: • Murder of Karnamaya Mongar • Murders of babies born alive • Infanticide • Violations of the Controlled Substances Act • Hindering, Obstruction, and Tampering • Perjury • Illegal late-term abortions • Violations of the Abortion Control Act • Violations of the Controlled Substances Act • Abuse of Corpse • Theft by Deception • Conspiracy • Corrupt Organization • Corruption of Minors"

 Canadians should take particular note of the National Abortion Federation:

"A national association of abortion providers declined to admit the Women’s Medical Society [Kermit Gosnell's abortion clinic] as a member, finding it to be the worst facility its inspector had ever seen...the evaluator from NAF readily noted that records were not properly kept, that risks were not explained, that patients were not monitored, that equipment was not available, that anesthesia was misused. It was the worst abortion clinic she had ever inspected. Of course, she rejected Gosnell’s application. She just never told anyone in authority about all the horrible, dangerous things she had seen." (emphasis added)

In fact NAF supposedly:

"is an association of abortion providers that upholds the strictest health and legal standards for its members." (emphasis added)

Yet the NAF inspector didn't tell anyone about the problems she witnessed there.

And guess what? This year Health Canada gave funding to NAF Canada (NAF is now active here) in the amount of $1,469,150Even though their inspector witnessed first hand problems with Gosnell's clinic, they never reported it to anyone. They just turned a blind eye. And now Canada is giving them our tax dollars.

I don't know about you, but I find this fact pretty disturbing.

Reclaiming the Canadian flag for Canadian Freedom

Justin Trudeau wants to "reclaim" the Canadian flag: Trudeau, ministers bid to reclaim flag from freedom protesters in Canada Day speeches.

Well I've decided to reclaim it from Justin Trudeau. I reclaim it for Canada. I reclaim it for freedom. I reclaim it for the truckers. I reclaim it for the people who want the freedom to not take the vaccine. I reclaim it for pro-life people and the pre-born Canadians they support.

And this flag is now mounted at our home in perpetuity.

So there Justin Trudeau. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

The appalling treatment of Tamara Lich

We should all be incensed at the treatment of Tamara Lich. She is being treated as a murderer or something worse, maybe a pedophile or rapist. A Canada wide search warrant (reserved for the most dangerous of offenders) dragged her back to Ottawa from her place of work (embarrassing her in front of co-workers), putting her in detention before Canada's national holiday (and away from her family). All for what? Because she allegedly breached a bail condition for having her picture taken with someone while in the presence of her lawyers (as per her bail condition)? 

Are the Crown, the Ottawa Police, and Justin Trudeau serious (we all know the PM's loathing for all things trucker convoy)? And why was she on bail in the first place? Accused of counseling mischief? Good grief.

I am so thoroughly fed up with this witch hunt against honest hard working Canadians like Tamara Lich, and all the protesters who came to Ottawa to fight for our freedom that Justin Trudeau and his vainglory supporters have conjured up I could just toss my cookies.

CIHI 2020 abortion data: tragedy and confusion still reign

CIHI's 2020 abortion stats:

"volumes reported underestimate the true number of induced abortions in Canada"

There are so many caveats (bolded below) in CIHI's abortion data, that it truly is difficult to know how many abortions are being perpetrated in Canada.

From Page 2:

"CIHI captures administrative, clinical and demographic data on induced abortions performed in Canadian hospitals. Data is supplied by provincial and territorial ministries of health, hospitals, independent abortion specific clinics and other clinics in Canada. Data from clinics providing abortion services is submitted voluntarily to CIHI and most does not include information on abortion procedure or patient characteristics. Counts in the following tables include induced abortions performed in a hospital or in a clinic providing abortion services in Canada. Due to variations in use of fee-for-service (FFS) payments for induced abortions across the country, these figures are not based on pan-Canadian FFS data [this is why I like to make FOI requests for data: it is typically more accurate than CIHI's numbers]

In recent years, medical abortions have become more accessible in primary care settings (e.g., nurse practitioner and physician offices, community and public health clinics), and most of these are not included in the data tables. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on hospital activity in Canada (e.g., delayed or cancelled surgeries). Measures to maintain early access to abortion services during the pandemic (e.g., virtual visits, extending gestational age limit for medical abortion) may have further shifted abortion volumes to primary care settings. Therefore, volumes reported underestimate the true number of induced abortions in Canada. More comprehensive reporting may be available in future CIHI releases.

Results presented in tables 3 to 8 are derived from hospitalization data only. Findings therefore exclude many early, medical and uncomplicated induced abortions, which occur more frequently in clinic and primary care settings. These results are unlikely to be representative of all abortions across all settings and may overestimate the proportion of all abortions with complications and underestimate the proportion of all abortions provided medically and in the first trimester."

And this note on Table 1:

"Number of induced abortions reported in Canada in 2020, by province/territory of hospital or clinic" (note: some abortions not included, for example, most medical abortions in primary care settings*)

And regarding Quebec's numbers:

The methodology for Quebec was revised in 2019 to include fee codes for medical abortions, resulting in an increase in reported abortion volumes for both hospitals and clinics.

So it seems most provinces do not report medical abortions to CIHI--but Quebec does report medical abortions?

Every abortion is a tragedy, but some are more tragic than others:

  • At least 1,376 women have had 2 or more hospital abortions (this number would be higher, because they exclude Quebec and clinic abortions)
  • At least 652 women have had hospital abortions at 21+ weeks gestation (this number would also be higher, because they exclude Quebec and clinic abortions)
  • 1,514 girls <=17 years old had an abortion. These girls cannot vote, legally drink or smoke dope, but they can abort their child.
How can we let this happen?

Quebec outsources the deaths of 154 children by abortion

According to a freedom of information request to the Quebec government, there were 21,265 abortions in 2020/2021 in Quebec facilities. That's a total of $3,205,165 or an average of $151/abortion.

They also outsourced 75 abortions to non-Quebec doctors' offices, at an average cost of $269/abortion

And they also outsourced 78 abortions to non-Quebec hospitals at an average cost of $1,477/abortion. (My guess is that these are all late-term abortions because of the much higher costs)

Quebec also sent one child to the United States to die by abortion in 2020/2021. This abortion cost $599.40.

AB - Alberta CALGARY GENERAL PETER LOUGHEED CENTRE for a total of $1,385

A Statement on Roe v Wade from Pro-Life Women in Canada

If you would like to sign a letter in support of the US Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe VS Wade, you can do so here:

https://www.prowomanprolife.org/2022/06/21/a-statement-on-roe-v-wade-from-pro-life-women-in-canada/

"Today the US Supreme Court officially released a decision overruling Roe v. Wade. While this is an American decision with no implication for Canadian law, some politicians north of the border have already politicized the issue. For all of the undersigned women, however, overturning bad law marks a point of immense encouragement. We speak out because those leaders who defend abortion do not speak for us. We speak out in defence of all human beings from their biological beginnings until death. We speak out because defending and advocating for women also means defending and advocating for our preborn children."

Andrea Mrozek is also interviewed here by the CBC on the decision.

Liberal forward for everyone = Liberal backward for pro-life

I wrote this a while back regarding the Canadian Finance department: ATIP reveals no records to support revoking charitable status of CPCs.

I subsequently submitted another ATIP to CRA to see what they had on the same subject. What I received back from CRA revealed a couple of things.

First of all, it told me that CRA would not be doing anything about revoking the charitable status on pro-life organizations (good news). It isn't their job to. It is Finance's job. But CRA did receive numerous inquiries from the media regarding Justin Trudeau's hateful, discriminatory, mean-spirited, devoid of merit, desire to remove their charitable status. For example:

Question: In the Liberal Forward for Everyone platform the party committed to no longer providing charitable status to anti-abortion organizations. Can you please tell me what is the status of this commitment? Has your department been given any sort of timeline to implement this commitment? Do you have a list of charities that would potentially be impacted by this change and could you share it?

Proposed response: The confidentiality provisions of the Income Tax Act prevent the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) from commenting on specific cases. However, we can provide you with the following information. The CRA can only determine whether an activity of a charity is acceptable after it has fully considered the facts of a particular case based on common law. According to the common law, the promotion of health can be charitable. To be charitable, a purpose that promotes health must, as a general rule, directly prevent or relieve a physical or mental health condition by providing effective health care services or products to the public in a manner that meets applicable quality and safety requirements. For more information, see Guidance CG-021, Promotion of health and charitable registration.

If the CRA identifies that a charity is not complying with the requirements of the Act, the charity could be subject to a number of compliance actions, up to and including revocation. We encourage the public to report suspected non-compliance by registered charities to the National Leads Centre.

Note that the CRA cannot provide any feedback and/or update on leads received, or subsequent actions taken. CRA’s actions can only made public when they result in a charity being: •revoked, •annulled, •suspended

The CRA posts such cases in its List of charities. This provides transparency to Canadians regarding the decisions of the CRA with respect to charities.

Notice that these inquiries were referred back to Finance:

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) administers the legislative provisions under the Income Tax Act. However, any legislative changes to the Act are the responsibility of the Department of Finance Canada. As a result, the CRA cannot comment on any potential legislative changes. (emphasis added)

Okay. So clearly CRA will not do anything about Justin Trudeau's hateful, discriminatory, mean-spirited, devoid of merit, election promise. 

Similar responses to media are also made in the document.

Then this statement:

The IM Team is prepared to respond to further enquiries by referring to the Department of Finance. (emphasis added)

CRA is clearly referring these requests back to Finance. But as far as I know Finance had no records on this (as mentioned earlier).

Finally we see this statement:

The Department of Finance has asked for our views regarding the Liberal Platform commitment.

So Finance asked for CRA's views on Justin Trudeau's hateful, discriminatory, mean-spirited, devoid of merit desire, election promise. But my ATIP to Finance revealed no documents. How could there be no documents, when Finance is asking for input from CRA?

I have now asked the Department of Finance why my previous ATIP to them revealed nothing. I am still waiting for a response.

Something is definitely fishy in the State of Denmark.

I would really like you all to ask him that question

This is a very important news conference given by MP Cathay Wagantall. What a gracious and beautiful person she is. Far more gracious than I could be in these circumstances.

She lives in Saskatchewan, and can't take a plane or train so has to drive back and forth to her home. She won't reveal her vaccination status.

"All Canadians should be allowed exemptions" she says.

She shows the hypocrisy and heavy handedness of the Prime Minister. She clearly lays the fault of these restrictions on Justin Trudeau.

 A reporter asked Ms. Wagantall "Why do you think the PM continues to extend the restrictions this week? She replied, "I would really like you all to ask him that question, over and over and over again. Clearly there is an alternative agenda and I don't think it's about Covid".

Thank you Cathy Wagantall. I wish I lived in your riding. You are my hero. God Bless you.

Live-birth late-term abortions still happen in Canada

There are some who say Canada does not perform late-term abortions. They are disinformation abortion lobbyists. (AKA Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights)

"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."

According to CIHI, here are the 2020-2021 numbers. These abortions are not only late-term abortions, they are also born-alive abortions.

In 2020/2021 Canadian abortion doctors performed:

18 of these horrific abortions at 20 weeks gestation

93 of these horrific abortions from 21-24 weeks gestation

8 of these horrific abortions from 25-28 weeks gestation

8 of these horrific abortions 29 weeks gestation and older

That's 127 born alive abortions in one year. That's 15 more than there were in 2019/2020

To add to this horror, there were 935 stillbirth abortions performed of 20 weeks and later gestation.

If this isn't something to weep over I don't know what is.

Former Minister of Health commends worker with CPC

We know that Justin Trudeau wants to take away charitable status from pregnancy care centres. It seems he follows Joyce Arthur's lead on this, who despises these centres.

However an ATIP revealed that former Minister of Health Jane Philpott seemed to have a different opinion of these centres. At least she did in her former capacity as Minister of Health in Canada, and before she quit the Liberal party when Trudeau fired her friend and colleague Jody Wilson-Raybould for being too ethical.

Here is a letter Dr. Philpott sent to someone who wrote to her about these centres. (emphasis added)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

JAN 14 2016


Dear,

Thank you for your correspondence of December 29, 2015, inviting me to meet with you to discuss abortion services and how improving the connection with pregnancy centres could be part of a new strategy.

Unfortunately, my schedule does not permit me to accept your kind invitation.

I commend you for your dedication in supporting vulnerable young women facing a crisis pregnancy.

Again, thank you for writing, and please accept my best wishes.

Yours sincerely,

The Honourable Jane Philpott, P.C., M.P.

Ten 25-28 week gestation live birth abortions is not none

Action Canada claims:

"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."

Not true. In fact in 2019-2020, there were 84 live birth abortions of 21-24 week gestation, and 10 live birth abortions of 25-28 week gestation in Canada. That is not none. And it is for one year only. And these numbers do not include Quebec abortions. These are abortions that fail, resulting in a live human being being born. And left to die. That is something. And we should all be ashamed.

A few of my posts on born alive and live birth abortions.

NAF Canada rears its ugly head

The National Abortion Federation (NAF) registered in Canada as a "charity" in 2009. For 11 years NAF Canada's presence here had been pretty much non existent. Just check out their income statements at CRA.

The last time they reported to CRA in 2020, this was their income:

Receipted donations $45,000.00 (34.76%)
Non-receipted donations $68,863.00 (53.19%)
Gifts from other registered charities $0.00 (0.00%)
Government funding $4,599.00 (3.55%)
All other revenue $11,012.00 (8.51%)

Total revenue: $129,474.00

In 2020 NAF had one full time employee who earned $108,829, and one part-time employee who earned 6,945. Like all pro-abortion organizations, compensation is very lucrative when your business is supporting/engaged in the killing of children in the womb. That's 84% of their revenue going to one salary. Can you imagine a pro-life group using 84% of their income to pay someone that much money? No, I can't either.

Previous to 2020, their only government funding was for two summer job program grants ($4,854 in 2021 and $4,654 in 2020). (Why did an inactive company even need those two interns? But I digress.)

Well that's all changed now. NAF Canada just received $1,469,150 in government funding in March 2022. Because clearly Canada needed more pro-abortion advocacy groups. 

It will be sad to see how the baby killing industry continues to expand in Canada under Canada's most pro-abortion prime minister we've ever had. 

Oh, and let's watch and see how many more high paying pro-abortions will be added to the ranks of NAF Canada.

Stay tuned. I'm watching you NAF Canada.

Justin Trudeau and the truckers

From the Documentary: Trucking for Freedom (Part 1)

"For thirty-three days, the world watched. Crossing ten provinces and three territories; thousands of trucks traversed the highways and by-ways of Canada’s northern climes in this exclusive documentary offering an immersive look into an extraordinary moment in Canadian history. The Chronicle Brothers imbedded themselves within the Canadian Trucker Convoy capturing the unifying pulse of everyday people.

The directors blend interviews and live footage, journaling unbiased truths intrinsically viewed through a camera lens. They expose the raw emotion and purpose of those who felt compelled to embark on a journey fraught with both joy and sorrow.

The film lays bare a deep and broadening divide within a country known for unity and trust, and how two years of lockdowns illuminated the disparity in the working class and the political landscape. It gives a raw and unpolished visual of diverse Canadians holding a gutted Canadian Charter up to a spotlight and hoping to be heard."

I have puzzled for a long time now about the motives of our Prime Minister for the things he says and does. This never puzzled me as much as the recent trucker convoy to Ottawa did.

Justin Trudeau treated the truckers and what they stood for--freedom--with total disdain. He refused to meet with them or even to listen to them. He called them "anti-vaxxer mobs" launching "racist, misogynistic attacks."

The only other group Trudeau has treated with such contempt is pro-life Canadians.

So why did Trudeau show such dislike for the truckers? I think I figured it out. He was very angry with them that was clear from the start. But I think in the final analysis, Justin Trudeau was jealous of them. He was jealous that they rallied an entire country around them. Something Justin Trudeau doesn't know how to do.

I wasn't in Ottawa for the time the truckers were here, but I happened to see the beginning of the convoy when we traveled the Ottawa Queensway from Kanata to downtown Ottawa on Jan 29. The right hand lane was filled with trucks. I expected the 18 wheelers, but was totally unprepared for the smaller trucks of all descriptions, and many many cars, all united by a common cause. There were so many Canadian flags, miles of them. I saw people at every overpass cheering them on. I had never seen such an outpouring of love for anything in my life before this. I could tell people were happy. They were excited. They stood behind something important: our freedom. I knew something electric was taking place. 

Over the 33 days of the protest, I spoke to people who were downtown to see for themselves what was happening there. They all remarked on the joy and love that was filling the bitter cold days so common in Ottawa. I saw reams and reams of footage of what was taking place. I saw people of different ethnic groups, of different ages, from the west and from the east. I saw Quebec flags and Canadian flags; Albertans and Francophones united together.

Justin Trudeau is divisive. He only supports those with whom he agrees. He spreads disinformation about those he doesn't like or doesn't agree with. We pro-life Canadians are only too familiar with his tactics. And now the truckers have felt it as well.

The truckers did what Justin Trudeau could not. They united a country. And for this they paid a heavy price.

Watch part one of the documentary. It is great.
