Pro-life advocates are calling for a federal investigation after Canada’s official statistics agency has confirmed that 491 babies died after they were born alive during abortions between 2000 and 2009.Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the intentional death of a baby called homicide? And, isn't homicide a crime?
Statistics Canada confirmed the information in an e-mail to LifeSiteNews Tuesday. Pro-life blogger Patricia Maloney first discovered the data about the abortions in the federal agency’s online database.
Mary Ellen Douglas, National Organizer for Campaign Life Coalition, called the revelation “outrageous.”
“The federal government needs to do whatever it can to investigate this data,” she added. “It’s bad enough that babies are being killed in the womb, but now we learn that even those protected under Canadian law are apparently being left to die.”
