MONTREAL, Quebec, August 7, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Montreal’s Alternative abortuary has announced that it will be closing its doors on September 30th due to a new Quebec government bill that has required minimal safety standards for abortion centres. Effective September 30th, Bill 34 requires abortuaries to receive a permit, which would require that they perform abortions in a sterile surgery room. The director of Alternative, Micheline Dupuis, told Le Devoir that the safety requirements are “excessive” and “absolutely unnecessary.” Alternative conducts approximately 1,000 abortions per year, and so both the Quebec media and abortion agencies are warning of long wait times. Private abortion mills in Quebec are said to conduct 5,000 of the 27,000 abortions per year in Quebec. Other abortion mills have not yet stated that they will close, but they are complaining about the new requirements, and according to Le Devoir, none of the facilities they contacted had the necessary basic operating room equipment. Claude Potvin of Femina told them that the law “does not correspond to anything in either the public, or in the private [setting].” According to the Morgentaler abortuary’s Dr. Francine Léger, “even in the hospitals, it’s not like that, it’s a double standard.” While they do not meet the new standards, Le Devoir reports that all of the facilities conform to the established requirements of the Quebec College of Physicians and the National Abortion Federation, which apparently do not require the abortion surgeries to be performed in a sterile environment with basic surgical equipment. It is reported that the Quebec College of Physicians will be meeting with the Quebec Ministry of Health to discuss the matter.
I see the abortion providers and their variety of useful idiots have provided us with yet another stellar example of how they carry the interest of women’s safety in their hearts. Remember the jingo, “Legal, Safe & Rare”? Well, they got the first one, but the industry really doesn’t care about the other two. Abortions are hardly rare and they never will be, provided they are legal and lucrative. After all, the pressure to abort remains intense on women in today’s culture. And as for abortion being “safe”, that’s the biggest lie going. More women are dying today from LEGAL abortions than they ever did from the back-alley kind. Abortionists are only concerned about the money.
A basic, sterile environment still costs money.
That’s why they are against it. Otherwise, why would they be putting up such a stink about conforming to basic health and safety standards? And why are they not providing such an environment in the first place? It kind of tells you what abortionists think about women’s health. They even tell women where to go if they get emotional….
The “doctor” said “Toughen up, why are you here? If you can’t handle it get out!” She “toughened up” and stayed. (Source)
That’s quite the situation, is it not? Are they suggesting that the Quebec government – one of the most fiercely pro-abort governments in the Western world – is…uh…pro-life? Give me a break. Maybe our prayers are working. After all, why has this become such a problem “all of a sudden”? Abortion has always been a dirty job.
I doubt the pro-abort fanatics out there will take the blinders off long enough to see that, though. Far from caring about “women’s health”, the abortionists are just concerned about “women’s money”. “Reproductive rights” is simply the ruse they push in order to sell their product. Remember, today, if you want to make a crap load of money, just slap “human rights” on it, and you’ll be loaded in no time.
Wake the f-up.
