Big abortion and the CMA

By Patricia Maloney

The Canadian Medical Association (CMA) has officially come out in support of maintaining a section of the Criminal Code that declares a child becomes a human being at the moment of birth.

One doctor, Dr. Genevieve Desbiens said this: “I’m asking for you to recognize that women must retain their full and complete rights.”

Really? Can’t the CMA do better than that? This “woman’s rights” nonsense really is getting too boring for words. Can’t the feminists invent a new slogan? This one is just so 70’s.

But here’s what I cannot comprehend on any level. Shouldn’t doctors know better than to say that the child is not a human being before the child is born? What exactly do they think is inside the mother’s womb? A cat? A dog? A ten headed serpent? Why would a doctor do fetal surgery on a baby if not a human being, a real live person, a baby by any other name?


Oh yes I know, the CMA represents those other human beings (abortionists) who actually do the dirty deed to the defenseless human beings (the babies), so yeah, I guess it makes sense the CMA wouldn’t want to admit that the children are human beings because that would be admitting some of their own colleagues are, you know, killers.

And sure, saying they support “women’s rights” sounds so nice, so inclusive, so adorable. That will ease their guilty consciences, after all, how can anyone who supports “women’s rights” be the bad guy?

If you’d like to read something that, God I pray, these doctors would actually spend five minutes out of their busy abortion schedule to read, it’s this excerpt from Dave Andrusko (about fetal pain and testimony by a former abortion doctor) who does away with that rubbish lie and greatest urban legend of all time of “women’s rights”:

“Picture yourself reaching in with the Sopher clamp [an instrument for grasping and crushing tissue] grasping anything you can. At twenty-four weeks gestation, the uterus is thin and soft so be careful not to perforate or puncture the walls. Once you have grasped something inside, squeeze on the clamp to set the jaws and pull hard  really hard. You feel something let go and out pops a fully formed leg about six inches long. Reach in again and grasp whatever you can. Set the jaw and pull really hard once again and out pops an arm about the same length. Reach in again and again with that clamp and tear out the spine, intestines, heart and lungs.

“…you know you did it right if you crush down, a white material runs out of the cervix. That was the baby’s brains. Then you can pull out skull pieces. Many times a little face will come back and stare back at you. And if you think that doesn’t hurt, if you believe that isn’t an agony for the baby, please think again.”

It is becoming crystal clear to me what’s going on here. An organization that has members who do the above described activity for a living wouldn’t want to admit that what they are ripping tiny arms and legs from, and crushing the skulls of and spilling the brains out of are, you know, tiny defenseless human beings. Because if they admitted that, their consciences might compel them to stop–and then what would that do to that big old abortion industry ($70M in Ontario alone)?”

So no, we certainly cannot have that discussion. It’s so much better for the CMA to worship at the abortion altar of “woman’s rights,” than to face a truth they simply cannot handle. A truth that slaps them in their conscience, and hits them in their pocket book. The truth about what an unborn child is.
