CAMPAIGN LIFE COALITION OUTRAGED BY CANADIAN ABORTION STATISTICS

TORONTO, Jan 21, 2002 (LSN.ca) – Statistics Canada has released its most recent information for 1999 on the killing of babies in their mothers’ wombs by abortion. The toll of deaths across Canada in territories and provinces other than Ontario, where data was not complete, stands at 65,627. Ontario, which usually reports about 40% of all abortions, sends the numbers of this human carnage even higher.

CANADIAN ABORTION STATISTICS RELEASED BUT ONTARIO REFUSES TO REPORT

OTTAWA, January 18, 2002 (LSN.ca) – Statistics Canada released its abortion statistics for 1999 today but noted that abortions for the province of Ontario were not included due to “changes in reporting requirements in Ontario.” The report notes that “women in provinces and territories other than Ontario obtained 65,627 abortions in 1999, down 3.2% from 67,785 in 1998.” However, since Ontario usually accounts for about 40% of abortions in Canada (according to the agency), the quality of the federal agency’s report is severely undermined. The ‘therapeutic abortion rate’, excluding Ontario, decreased to 31.8 abortions for every 100 live births in […]

UK COURT OF APPEAL APPROVES GOVERNMENT CHALLENGE TO CLONING RULING The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) has condemned a ruling by the English Court of Appeal which upholds flawed legislation on human cloning. Three judges ruled that cloned human embryos were governed by existing legislation. The decision overturns the victory by the Pro-Life Alliance on 15th November last year in the English High Court, which ruled that the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990 did not cover embryos created by techniques other than by fertilisation, such as cell nuclear replacement.  https://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/sci/tech/newsid_1767000/1767503.stm
