RE:  Exclusive Report Summary: Twenty Years of Eugenic Abortion at Ontario Catholic Hospital
  As a practising Roman Catholic and the mother of five children who lost 3 children, one nine hours after birth, another 24 days after birth, and the last one in my arms at 7 months, I just could not read this entire article without crying.  And coming from a Catholic hospital, it is three times more repulsive.  I condemn this behaviour.

This is the unauthorised and direct taking of innocent life (God alone can authorise it). In other words, this act is an act of murder. Any competent ethician will declare this to be an act of abortion. Note that these bogus ethicians don’t even employ correct terms. An ‘ethicist’ is a term which has sprung up among the amateurs based on their existentialist morality.

Is this a witch hunt on your part or not?  The priest is a moral theologian, in touch with his bishop.  What else do you want?  Our system of care cannot afford the burden of cost to these heavily handicapped individuals.  God looks after his own, so why are you worrying?

Killing is killing. Yes, that procedure should be labeled as abortion, regardless of the justification for the means (early induction of an abnormal fetus). I am glad that this has come out now. Please stop these people from killing very special human beings.

When I moved to London 22 years ago I was expecting my fourth child.  I found a pro-life doctor as family physician, but to my surprise, he would not work at the St. Joseph’s hospital.  He stated that they did “secret abortions” and he would not be associated with an institution that was so hypocritical.  He personally challenged the physicians who claimed to be pro-life who worked at St. Joe’s and was unpopular with many of the other local physicians.  About 13 years ago he left North America to work in an isolated hospital in Africa, so I do not know where he is at present, but I honor Dr. Oosterhuis as a man of faith and deep integrity.

Having to have a perfectly healthy child die in the neonatal unit, much less the obscene expense if it survives as a result of misdiagnosis would be the clincher in the argument for me, in that in these cases it’s always best to truly wait on God.

This article takes me back over 16 years when as a result of a routine ultrasound, our 4th son was diagnosed with anencephaly. We were of course offered abortion, but instead prayed and left it in His hands. A perfectly healthy child is what we were blessed with, who has grown to be the tallest out of our three boys. He sings bass with our family singing group, and enjoys anything “hands on”. We have audio posted on our website and will soon have some video as well.
