(Adapted from his commentary on RoadKill Radio)
The Canadian Medical Association has issued a statement—political, not medical—that a baby does not become a human being until after it is born.
This organization, ostensibly representing the views and interests of faithful medical practitioners has allowed itself to be used by the abortion lobby and has lent its influence to liberal social engineering. In a glaringly hypocritical statement published on September 4, 2012, John Fletcher, CMA Journal editor-in-chief, calls on Parliament to “ban spanking,” presuming to know more about child rearing than all the dads and moms in Canada. He claims that spanking is just an “excuse for poor parenting.” Put that in perspective: he’s saying it’s okay to kill, dismember, and discard little children during the first nine months of their lives but if they survive the abortionist culture and are born, a parent cannot lovingly administer corrective discipline?
I have a question for the CMA: If the parents are both human, the progeny is certainly not a rabbit. If the parents are both human, what is the baby, if not human?
Am I putting down doctors? Not at all. The CMA no more speaks for all doctors than the teachers’ unions speak for all teachers or a sports association speaks for all players. Doctors are healers, and their training and compassion are important. But the real expertise of most Canadian doctors is confined to just one part of the healing arts. And within that part, there is a tiny—and, happily, a shrinking—number of doctors who are willing to ignore their understanding of human development, ignore their pangs of conscience, and ignore the high ideals of the medical profession’s stated goals to become paid killers instead of healers.
The absurd CMA statement that pre-born babies aren’t human beings is merely a professional group’s attempt to protect a grisly billion-dollar-a-year industry that enriches those few.
Parliament will soon decide whether to reconsider the 400-year-old criterion that undergirds that grisly industry. To many politicians, an organization like the CMA represents a convenient clumping together of potential votes; and when the opinion of such a group is falsely presented to them as being all on one side, it may seem to them to have weight…and that needs a counter-weight: your opinion.
This is an urgent time for you to act: visit, call, or write your Member of Parliament and urge them to support Motion 312 by MP Stephen Woodworth. Motion 312 will be debated on September 21 and the final vote is expected to take place on September 26. Your MP should be on the frontlines, supporting this important motion.
Woodworth wants Parliament to create a committee to review Section 223 of the Criminal Code, which says a child becomes a human being when it has completely proceeded, in a living state, from the body of its mother.
Woodworth, quite correctly, argues: “If a child, five minutes before birth, can be defined as ‘not a human being,’ then the question is: ‘Who’s next?’”
Don’t put this off: contact your Member of Parliament right away to make sure your opinion is heard. Best is to make an appointment to visit your MP at his or her constituency office; next-best is to phone and leave a message for him or her to call you back—then say this issue is important to you, and could influence your vote at the next election. If nothing else, write a letter (no postage needed), or send an e-mail. But make sure your MP knows your opinion.
Remember: your voice matters.
