Our new Prime Minister needs to put his money where his mouth is and make a difference in the lives of the “children” growing in their mother’s wombs. His words on National Child Day ring hollow for the children who are displaced from their mother’s wombs by state funded abortion. The ink has hardly dried on this fledgling Canadian Government but already expansion of abortion is a priority! I ask our Prime Minister these questions.
What about the right to life of children before birth? What is the point of their “right to be raised in a world free of discrimination, violence, and exploitation, and each one deserves to grow up with proper nutrition and health care, a good education, and safe communities” when the State endorses and expands killing them before birth for any or no reason? The Prime Minister has pledged more money to families to raise their children – maybe he should consider financially assisting parents to bring their babies into the world – by expanding the Universal Child Care allowance to start at confirmation of pregnancy – since the majority of abortions are for socioeconomic reasons.
I would say we would be a healthier Canadian family if we finally recognized and became engaged with our tiniest member – the child in the womb – by helping families this way. The Prime Minister notes that, “As a father and a former school teacher, I know that one of our greatest responsibilities is to help our children become engaged, healthy, and successful. As Prime Minister, I remain committed to helping all of our children achieve their potential.”
Then show us Prime Minister! As a father you have watched all three of your children grow in the womb – you know the truth of their presence and life. Did you ever even once wonder why our Criminal Code does not protect the lives of yours or any other parent’s children at that time? Will you help children in the womb reach their potential? Will you end the “discrimination, violence and exploitation” against them before birth?
I for one will be watching – I won’t hold my breath for fear of expiring while I watch.
Criminal Code of Canada Section 223
223. (1) A child becomes a human being within the meaning of this Act when it has completely proceeded, in a living state, from the body of its mother, whether or not
(a) it has breathed;
(b) it has an independent circulation; or
(c) the navel string is severed.
(2) A person commits homicide when he causes injury to a child before or during its birth as a result of which the child dies after becoming a human being.
Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada on National Child Day
November 20, 2015
The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, issued the following statement today on National Child Day:
“I think that one of the most rewarding things about being Prime Minister of Canada is having the ability to make a real difference in the lives of children in our own country and around the world.
“Each child deserves the right to be raised in a world free of discrimination, violence, and exploitation, and each one deserves to grow up with proper nutrition and health care, a good education, and safe communities”
“As we look back exactly 26 years to when the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted and opened for signature, we can see that real progress has been made in moving the markers forward for young people around the globe. But there is still an enormous amount of work to be done, from reducing preventable diseases to feeding the undernourished, from freeing those being forced to do child labour to ending child, early, and forced marriage, and from rehabilitating former child soldiers to sheltering the millions displaced as a result of conflicts and hunger.
“These children need our help. The Government of Canada will continue to sponsor programs around the world that help boys and girls grow up healthy and reach their full potential. That is also why Canada is taking in families of Syrian refugees.
“Here at home, the Government of Canada will give families more money to help with the high cost of raising their kids. We will provide direct help to students from low- and middle-income families to help them pay for their education and ensure that debt loads are manageable. We will also do our part to help Canadian children live healthier lives, with less exposure to known health risks.
“By encouraging our nation’s most valuable asset – our youth – to be agents of positive change, we are helping them become the leaders of today and tomorrow.
“As a father and a former school teacher, I know that one of our greatest responsibilities is to help our children become engaged, healthy, and successful. As Prime Minister, I remain committed to helping all of our children achieve their potential.”
