Skip to comments.Why no homicide investigations after babies born alive, left to die in Canada?

November 28, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The blog Run with Life has reported that, from 2000 to 2009, 491 babies have been born alive following a failed abortion procedure, and subsequently left to die. And those are only the ones that are recorded by Statistics Canada.
The blog explains that there were 491 abortions, of 20 weeks gestation and greater, that resulted in live births. This means that the aborted child died after it was born. These abortions are coded as P96.4 or Termination of pregnancy, affecting fetus and newborn.
The question that should immediately present itself is, why has there not been 491 homicide investigations or prosecutions in connection with these deaths? Section 223(2) of the Criminal Code (the accompanying subsection to the now infamous subsection that Mr. Woodworths motion 312 was examining) reads A person commits homicide when he causes injury to a child before or during its birth as a result of which the child dies after becoming a human being. That is to say, anyone who interferes with a pregnancy such that the child dies after it is born alive due to that interference, is guilty of homicide.
So again, why have there been no criminal prosecutions? Why no outcry? And why are the provinces funding this explicitly criminal activity?
Some might argue that these procedures need to be protected in order to protect womens health. Those who defend such actions or procedures are undoubtedly grasping at the defense for the crime listed in 238(1). Subsection 238(2) provides this defence: This section does not apply to a person who, by means that, in good faith, he considers necessary to preserve the life of the mother of a child, causes the death of that child.

A person commits homicide when he causes injury to a child before or during its birth as a result of which the child dies after becoming a human being.
After becoming a human being? That sounds so ridiculous. So the child magically becomes a human being after he/she passes through the birth canal, yet minutes before while in the womb, the same child was a nonperson? It's amazing to me how liberals contort the language and common sense to justify aborting children. They always say that we conservatives are anti-science, yet how much more anti-science can you get?
Secondly, Obama would support this. When he was an Illinois Senator, he argued against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, saying that a child born alive during an abortion shouldn't be protected. He took a position farther to the left than NARAL. Obama's rationale was that you can't say it's not a person and can be killed in the womb but say it is a person outside of the womb. Idealogically, at least Obama was consistent. Was it an evil position to take? No doubt, but it was consistent. A moral position upon realizing that a baby in the womb is the same being as a baby outside the womb would be that abortion should be illegal. Obama believes abortion should be legal, though, so he took the opposite position. Sickening.
My heart just breaks for those 491 babies who were left to die alone and unwanted. They died on the alter of progress, killed by the same people who argure for human rights and tolerance.
Evil is everywhere and in every thing.
Jesus is on His way.
Can’t imagine what is going through the mind of a person performing a late term abortion. But to take it to the next horrific level, what they are thinking as they see a baby fighting to stay alive in spite of what the abortionist has done.
I see that the canadian officials are deathly afraid of the raging feminazis, just like in the USA.
They will let babies die, just so as to get feminazi votes and money.
So in matters of public policy it is often an advantage to call attention to the scientific evidence for the humanity of the begotten child at every stage, and the reasonable inference that "equal justice under law" would entail the protection of this child --- like any child --- from fatal abuse or neglect.
Natural Law is for everyone who is capable of rational thought.
Though some people don't think, or don't think very well. Yet it's worth the effort to challenge them, I would say.
Welcome to the “effective” part of “safe and effective”.
Only differenc in U.S. is that murder after live birth is called “late term abortion”.
Who believes that they go through all of those gymnastics to keep the head inside, while they kill the baby?
I agree with you, but whether one accepts the scriptures or not will not change the fact that we know reasoning by the God we learn of in the scriptures.
I was saved without knowing Him, but I learn of Him through His Word.
My point was not to argue or discuss the scriptures but to state that evil is everywhere and answering the question is simple ... men are Hell bound evil doers without Christ and Heaven bound forgiven evil doers WITH Christ.
Thanks for the post Pinkbell, and the ping squawk8888.
491 babies, left to die, or worse, over a 9 year period is almost 50 of the ‘most’ new~born of Canadian children every year.
I know a woman who aborted at about 20 weeks, but she is evil in everything she does. It’s the doctors that scare me....what kind of doctors do they find to do these murders? I can’t understand it.
