For years, there has been a public outcry for an inquiry or a more thorough investigation into the disappearances of missing Aboriginal women, including those who have vanished on the “Highway of Tears”—Highway 16 west of Prince George, BC. Others have vanished from cities and villages and dark streets across the nation.
Of course, women of other ethnic backgrounds have also been victims—many of them are known to have been killed by weirdoes and perverts like Pickton; but the number of unsolved cases of missing Aboriginal women and girls is truly appalling. The usual number used is about 600 missing (mostly presumed murdered) in the past 20 years. First Nations leaders say the number could be even higher; some say as many as 3,000!
My heart goes out the families and communities which are mourning for their missing loved ones. The failure of governments and police departments (with a few notable exceptions) to investigate thoroughly and bring to justice the cowardly perpetrators of these deeds is certainly an additional wound to those seeking closure and comfort.
I raise my voice in agreement that the situation is serious and calls for a serious inquiry.
However, in the midst of this tragic series of events and calls for help, I can’t help noting one ironic twist in the rallying for an inquiry: Niki Ashton, NDP MP for Churchill has made a public demand for the Harper government to pre-empt a threatened UN inquiry by leading the effort to investigate the disappearances and murders of these 600 aboriginal women. We agree with her.
But what about the 1.6 million (1,600,000) Canadian women and girls missing from our families and communities as a result of abortion?
The NDP as a group, and Niki Ashton as an individual MP, continue to turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to calls for an investigation into the personhood of the unborn child.
Human babies in the womb (Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal alike) still have no legal protection whatsoever in Canadian law. On this issue, Niki agrees with Stephen Harper. Neither of them wants any kind of inquiry, nor any discussion in Parliament of the human costs of the wilful killing of 100,000 little human beings in Canada every year.
Women of every race are victimized by this atrocity. They are told: “It’s just tissue;” but after their sons and daughters are ripped from their wombs, they experience unexpected loss and depression. Breast cancer rates are also rising, and many studies indicate that abortion is a contributing cause; but people like Niki Ashton and Stephen Harper don’t want to discuss that!
The ironic thing is that in the case of the missing Aboriginal women who have MP Ashton’s attention, many of these are—by now—cold cases, difficult to track and difficult to prosecute. The attempt should still be made.
However, in the case of the babies killed by abortion, we know exactly how they died, where they died—and who killed them. In fact, the Government of Canada (i.e., you and I, through our taxes) paid for them to be killed.
A total of 3.3 million little boys and girls have been the victims of this tragic social experiment since about 1970. Maybe the NDP should show a fraction of the interest in ending that killing spree that they do in grabbing the spotlight in the politically-correct call for a public inquiry into the disappearances of Aboriginal women. Many of these little ones killed by abortion are Aboriginal girls, as well; their mothers are also victims. The unfeeling politicians who encourage them to make choices they will regret are guilty of abandoning them to a system that is swallowing them up by the thousands… hundreds of thousands… millions.
Yes, we need to investigate the social breakdown that is stealing young women from the reserves and from the streets of our cities. But we also need to dig deeper to find all the missing children of Canada.
There is something very important missing in our government: it’s called honesty, moral consistency—and respect for human life.
For those values, Canadians must look to CHP Canada. We are the only federal political party that is both pro-life and pro-family.
Join today to add your voice to the outcry for a government that respects the life of all Canadians.
