ALBERTA, Aug 29 ( – “At the time before legalization (the 1950s and early 1960s), abortion supporters most often portrayed abortion providers as heroes. Planned Parenthood, the world’s lead promoter of abortion, used to reassure women who were seeking the procedure, despite its illegality, that nine of 10 providers were licensed doctors working on the side, outside office hours, for the good of their female patients. But now that abortion-on-demand is legal in Canada, now that the goal has changed from making abortion legal to keeping it entirely unrestricted and publicly funded, the campaigners seek to paint the before-time as all bad, all brutality, danger and death. While the now, the time of easy access to legal abortion, is projected as entirely safe and benign.”

Well, this just isn’t so.
