Abortion is #1 cause of death in Canada

On July 28, Statistics Canada released new data on the main causes of death in Canada for 2006, the most recent year available.  When looking at the table of leading causes of death for all age groups combined, we read that the #1 cause of death is malignant neoplasms, i.e. cancer.  However, their table did not include abortion deaths for obvious political reasons.  So where would abortion rank in this table?

Cancer was responsible for the death of 67,807 people of all ages in 2006.  In a separate survey, Statistics Canada reports that there were 91,377 abortions in Canada in 2006, although they admit in a footnote that this number is likely low because it only includes abortions performed in hospitals and clinics.  So abortion is, by far, the #1 cause of death of Canadians.

Let me rephrase that without using the word “abortion” just so that we clearly understand the significance of this:  the intentional termination of innocent lives is the main cause of death in Canada.

That’s a pretty sad indictment of of a supposedly civilized country, wouldn’t you say?

I think that most people that consider themselves pro-choice are really not too thrilled about abortion.  Sure, they want it to be safe and legal, but they realize the downsides and would prefer that it not come to that.  Such pro-choice Canadians mustn’t be too happy that abortion is the #1 cause of death in our country.

So if most of us agree this is a problem, what are we going to do about it?

  1. The morality of our country is best judged by how we treat our own children.
    Sadly, millions of pregnancies have ended in abortion, one of the most dangerous places to be in Canada is in the womb. Taking the life of an innocent human being, is morally wrong.
    By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own baby to solve her problems. And by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion.

    Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want.

  2. Very well put, Garry. That absence of “teaching its people to love” eventually manifests itself in other ways in society, through lack of compassion, individualism, poverty, crime, family abuses, etc.
