Canadian MPs - Abortions 19+ wks = Homicide

Three Conservative MPs want the RCMP to investigate any abortions performed after 19 weeks in Canada as possible homicides.

The MPs from Saskatchewan, Alberta and Ontario make the request in a letter on House of Commons letterhead to RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson.

In the letter, the MPs say abortions performed at 20 weeks gestation or later breach Section 223a of the Criminal Code.

The MPs say the killing of Canadian children may continue to grow if they are not thoroughly investigated by police.

The letter is signed by MPs Maurice Vellacott of Saskatoon-Wanuskwein, Leon Benoit of Vegreville-Wainwright and Wladyslaw Lizon of Mississauga East-Cooksville.

Rona Ambrose, minister for the status of women, told the Commons Monday that Canadians don’t want to revisit the abortion debate. Tory MPs have nonetheless repeatedly brought it up.

Late last year, the House struck down Conservative MP Stephen Woodworth’s motion to strike a committee to study the issue of when a child is considered a human being.

Woodworth’s motion was widely interpreted as a bid to reopen the abortion debate.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper voted against the controversial motion, but 10 of his cabinet ministers broke ranks and supported Woodworth in the free vote.

Woodworth’s motion proposed that the committee would be responsible for presenting a report that would discuss the medical evidence around whether a child isn’t a human until its birth, whether that evidence is consistent with the Criminal Code, the legal impact and consequences, and the options available to Parliament to affirm, amend or replace that subsection of the code.

He said last fall the ultimate goal of his motion is to engage Canadians, through Parliament, in an open-minded review of the evidence and legal implications of that subsection of the code.

In 1988, the Supreme Court struck down Canada’s anti-abortion laws.

In December, another Conservative back-bencher introduced his own private member’s motion aimed at outlaying sex-selective abortions.

Mark Warawa, MP for Langley, explained that his campaign was about condemning a practice that sees female fetuses aborted because of their sex, and not about criminalizing abortion.

Warawa’s bill won’t be debated until February, and the NDP has already indicated it will vote against it, when the time comes.

“We’re not going to be fooled by Stephen Harper and his troops,†Mulcair told Postmedia News in December. “Mr. Harper swears out of one side of his mouth that he doesn’t want to reopen the abortion debate but he constantly uses his backbenchers to send in new attempts to.â€

This will, hopefully, never fly, but there are at least 3 wingnuts out there who are pushing the idea that women are out there having a ton of late-term abortions when it's really rare.

I'm not surprised that this keeps being pushed (generally, we tend to swing towards crazy in our own way at the same time the US does), but hopefully it won't get very far. It's just not that big a deal here.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
