It’s a double crime
The RECORD Article June 18, 2011
Our research shows at least five pregnant women in Canada have been
killed in the past few years, with convictions of one count of murder each.
A woman who was pregnant was killed in Kitchener recently. The
Canadian Criminal Code states that a fetus is a “human being”
when it has completely proceeded, in a living state, from the body of its
A double charge of murder could be a deterrent for crimes
against a woman and her unborn child. Affirming the value of the unborn
baby would also affirm the value of the mother’s life because she
died wanting to bring her baby to term.
Recent fetal homicide bills have failed, even with
two-thirds of Canadians wanting at least some protection for unborn human
life, according to a 2009 Environics poll. The law should balance the
rights of the preborn baby and the rights of the mother.
Are these incidents relevant to the abortion debate? A
recent study found that 64 per cent of aborted women felt pressured by
others leaving them “no choice” but abortion, says the Elliot
Institute. The right to make “her own
choice” would affect the rights of women in a positive way.
Criminal Law has to do something more substantial to help
pregnant women at risk from abusive relationships. Women need a law that
protects them and allows them to bring their babies to term safely.
Informed consent laws could screen those at risk of abuse and pressure to

Fourth, it is a scientific fact that a
fetus is a human being, recognized by both embryologist Professor K. Moore,
U of Toronto(8) and the late
abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson(9) , making abortion not only
a very risky medical procedure but an act of willful killing (4 million in
Canada – since 1969(9)), making it a moral issue as
well,whether legalized or not.
However, Dr. Polevoy is either
ignorant of the above facts or chooses to ignore them. Sadly, his narrow
anti-life views blind him to the very real suffering by the mother and the
child within, whose only voice is too often a silent scream(10).

Re: Charity banners come down in Waterloo
— March 22
KW Right to Life has purchased overhead banner
space from the City of Waterloo
public works for over 15 years. Like more than 30 other charities, we were
disappointed about the cancellation of banners in 2011 due to the
structural integrity of the poles. Banners provide needed affordable
awareness for events that support non-profit organizations.
Last September KW Right to Life’s
application for banner space was promised no commitment for 2011. Since
that time public works staff began reviewing the various aspects of
providing the service and determined that changes regarding who would and
would not be allowed to purchase banner space be applied to the new policy.
Discontinuing the service to purchase overhead
banner space due to the poles ignores a significant issue. It is my opinion
the integrity of the decision-making process for a banner policy was
compromised based on belief systems. This may have resulted in denying KW
Right to Life and other charities the availability of purchasing future
banner space. Mandates of any charitable organization will always infringe
on someone else’s opinion. Tolerance bears this realization and helps
build up communities.
The City of Waterloo should
have maintained the valuable tradition of allowing registered charities the
availability to purchase banner space for their events. All charities that
follow the Policy Statement of Canadian Charities should be given equal
opportunity by the City of Waterloo.

2012 will be an important year for KW Right to Life.
It is the 40th year of operation for our non-profit charity, KW and Area Right

the year. It will be exciting to look at past people and events that have
made the organization what it is today. How we have changed the course of
many lives and were instrumental in changing public opinion in this area.
We plan to engage those from the past and present to
relate their experiences at various venues and events such as the
anniversary dinner and auction. If you would like to relate how you helped,
