RE: The conservative stance on abortion you didn’t know about,
Maclean’s, May 14, 2012, p. 4-5

It would seem that all of the arguments being put forward against MP Stephen Woodworth’s motion proposing a re-examination of the definition of what constitutes a human being, are political in nature.  I have yet to hear a reasoned argument against the motion itself, i.e. providing solid evidence that an unborn child is not indeed a human being.

What if it turns out that we are right now denying the most basic of human rights to certain members of our society?  We’ve been wrong in the past regarding similar assumptions that in the mainstream were taken as a given; women, for instance, were not considered persons under Canadian law until 1929.

Only by putting aside the rhetoric and the slogans, and holding a full and honest debate, can we get to the bottom of important societal issues.  Shame on our Parliament, and on Canada, should we lack the courage to do so.

Thank you,
Glen G.

    Please don’t be politically conned into legalizing Pedophilia, and other perversion’s as ” human rights ” again democratic citizens of CANADA ! Many of our Supreme Court Justices, and Politicians cannot be trusted to protect Traditional Family Values.

    In its December 20, 2005 decision just before Christmas, The Supreme Court of Canada, legalized a type of business activity previously restricted by Canadian Law, overturning two previous Court of Appeal decisions that had ruled group-sex clubs qualified as bawdy houses violating community decency standards, and were therefore illegal.

    Now under Canadian Law consenting 14 year old’s are considered consenting adults, as a human right. The courts controversial decision has made Canada a sex trafficking playground for pedophiles. This Rule Of Secular Law is the direct consequence of Parliament not raising the age of sex consent as many parents, and concerned citizens wanted them to.

    Supreme Court Of Canada Chief Justice Beverly McLachlin joined by Justices Major, Binnie, Deschamps, Fish, Abella and Charron in the sex-club decision.

    The two dissenting Justices Michael Bastarache and Louis LeBel said,” the high court’s ruling, strips of all relevance the social values that the Canadian community as a whole believes should be protected,” according to the Globe and Mail newspaper.

    Bill C313 to raise the age of sex consent was defeated 167 to 99 on September 28, 2005. 90 federal Conservative MP’s voted to raise the age of sex consent,and of the rest of the POLITICAL PARTIES IN CANADA PUT TOGETHER ONLY 9 MEMBERS VOTED TO RAISE THE AGE OF SEX CONSENT. How our MP’s voted was on the website http://www.parl.gc.ca

    Social Conservatives have to unite, and the others change their minds and join us as some already have, by looking at the consequences of their political choices on Canadian children and society.

    From 2005 to 2008 concerned Parents and Canadian citizens organized politically across our nation to get a social Conservative MP to bring up a Bill in Parliament to raise the age of sex consent. My mentor and best friend Professor Tom Landers and friends across Canada worked and prayed to put an end to this evil so-called human right. We published the names of the Supreme Court Justices and MP’s of our political parties and how they voted on this issue, and then asked Canadian citizens if this is what they wanted their Democratic Canada to become? The majority at that time did not want to legalize evil as a human right. In 2008 we succeeded in getting Parliament to Pass A Bill into Canadian Law to raise the age of sex consent to end this legal exploitation. If citizens organize politically to change rotten Canadian Government and Supreme Court Of Canada law they can succeed. The consequences of legalizing evil are dire.

    Stephen Harper and his hand picked Cabinet are now voting against the majority of Traditional Family Values Conservative MP’s in their own Party on Bills in Parliament. Which one of these will be Stephen Harper’s Successor and what kind of Bills into Law’s will he pass to become human rights, and normalized to impressionable schoolchildren from Kindergarten? Stephen Harper and the Cabinet too can be forced to change their minds by the democratic will of Canadian citizens.

    Canada and The West are now in the same boat. In a democracy like ours the responsibility for the laws of our nation are in the hands of our voting citizens. I hope that Politically Correct Relativism by establishment hasn’t made objective thinking obsolete. After The Second World War ,The Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal indicted ten Nazi leaders for encouraging and compelling Abortions,”Crimes Against Humanity,” even though The Nazi Government and Supreme Court passed over 400 Law legalizing the crimes. Trials Of War Criminals, Nuremberg Military Tribunal, Washington, DC:UAGPO,Volume IV,page610.

    This is for you Stephen Harper, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton declared in their weekly Women’s Newspaper The Revolution ,” No matter what the motive, the woman is awfully guilty who commits Abortion, It will burden her conscience in life, her soul in death, but oh, thrice guilty is ”He” who drove her to the desperation which impelled her to the crime.”

    Stephen Harper what kind of country are ”You” and your Cabinet morphing Canada into?

    After The Second World War, The Nuremberg Military Tribunal indicted ten Nazi leaders for encouraging and compelling abortions,” crimes against humanity.” Trials Of War Criminals, Nuremberg Military Tribunal, Washington,DC:USGPO, Volume IV, page 610. This despite the fact that The Nazi Supreme Court and Government passed over 400 laws legalizing their crimes against humanity,and the Nazi’s said we did not break the law or did anything wrong. Technically they were right, but that did not save them . Does their excuse sound familiar Stephen Harper? Nazi laws were also taught to schoolchildren as science, law, and human rights. They taught them that some people are more human than others. Here are Hitler’s words over a gas oven in Auschwitz ” I want to raise a generation of young people devoid of a conscience, imperious, relentless and cruel.”

    He accomplished this through Government, Law, and Education, by Government decree and Court enforcement.

    On comment 1.Washington DC:UAGPO should read USGPO.

    We need a Democratic debate again on “Abortion”, Stephen Harper, and citizens of Canada, because of where our nation has free-fallen to. “What is legal is moral” is a slogan that has been used throughout History by Governmentsto justify evil.
