By exporting abortion to the developing world the Canadian government is jeopardizing the morality of the nation and the mortality of those it should be helping, says a bioethics and social research report.

Official Letter to Prime Minister of Canada on International Women's Day

Dear Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Honourable Minister Bibeau, and Honourable Minister Monsef,

As a research institute dedicated to researching the short and long term effects of abortion on women, men, and families worldwide, we are greatly concerned with your recent decision to include abortion related procedures in the $650 million to be allocated towards women’s health and rights around the world.

Book Review
 
Abortion’s Impact on Women, by Angela Lanfranchi, Ian Gentles, and Elizabeth Ring-Cassidy, softcover, 433 pp, $29.95, ISBN-13: 978-0920453360, Toronto, Ontario, De Veber Institute for Bioethics and Social Research, 2013.
 
The adverse impact of legally induced abortion on society is apparent, with major demographic and social changes. Greatly increased numbers of legal abortions make this impact on women’s health all the more consequential. This book meets a major need to make these effects known.
 
Demographers distinguish between a first and second demographic transition. The first manifests a reduction in the birth rate from greater use of all kinds of birth control.

‘Good reasons’

Re: Abortion Delays Cited In New Study, Nov. 24.
There may be good reasons why mifepristone and misoprostol (RU-486) have not yet been legalized for medical abortions in Canada. Their failure rate in international studies ranges between 4% and 16% or higher. Medical abortions also have more adverse side effects than surgical abortion, and the children who survive them have a much higher incidence of birth defects, including Möbius syndrome.

Of course, almost every woman seeking an abortion does have a real alternative. She can carry her pregnancy to term.
