Pro-aborts a dying breed?

Tony Gosgnach The Interim One of the world's top researchers into life issues made a tour of southern Ontario recently, offering information and strategies to combat the anti-life agenda - a particularly timely topic, given the federal election campaign and the prominence given to abortion within it. Dr. Brian Clowes included a Basic Pro-Life Training Workshop in Hamilton as part of his agenda, in addition to appearing on the Toronto-based ... (Continue reading)

Let’s face the truth

For more than a year the daily newspapers have been giving accounts of the death of people in Iraq. The number of military casualties due to the war are not available, or at least not accurately, but one website suggests the total number of combatants and non-combatants as somewhere between 11,000 and 15,000. This is certainly tragic news and the members of their families - wives, parents, ... (Continue reading)

Canada’s abortion rate rises

Interim StaffOn March 31, Statistics Canada released information showing that Canadian women committed 106,418 in 2001. The 106,418, which CLC National News compares to eliminating a mid-sized city each year, is added to the more than 2 million abortions committed in Canada since 1960.

A deafening silence – Editorial

The Interim was founded because the mainstream media ignored the pro-life message of former abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson while he was in Toronto. Twenty years later, the mainstream media is still ignoring life issues. Two recent examples illustrate this journalistic black hole. On March 28, Statistics Canada released the national abortion numbers, not including those committed in private abortuaries in Ontario. Campaign Life Coalition sent out a ... (Continue reading)

Latest Stats Can figures reveal mounting abortion death toll

Canada's pro-life community remains unimpressed by news that the overall abortion rate dropped slightly between 1999 and 2000.

Canadians reject status quo on abortion

In a statement that marked one of the defining moments of the Liberals' 2000 campaign against the Canadian Alliance, Prime Minister Jean Chretien said the country is enjoying "social peace" on the abortion issue. Holding forth from a similar pro-choice podium, Health Minister Anne McLellan threatened last month to withhold transfer payments to New Brunswick ... (Continue reading)

Abotion rates drop in U.S.

The results of a national U.S. survey on abortion conducted by a pro-abortion organization is generating some controversy south of the border. The Alan Guttmacher Institute - otherwise known as the research arm of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America - said in an Oct. 8 release that its survey of 10,000 women showed "U.S. abortion rates continue to decline, especially among teens." Overall, the U.S. abortion rate is reported to have ... (Continue reading)

B.C. Liberals follow NDP lead in repression of abortion stats

B.C. pro-life activist Ted Gerk is slamming the recently elected Liberal government for following the lead of the New Democrats in refusing to make abortion statistics publicly available. In November, when Gerk made a request for the latest numbers of abortions being done in the Okanagan-Similkameen Health Region and, specifically, Kelowna General Hospital, his request was denied. Now it is apparent, he says, that the ... (Continue reading)

Polls show Canadians not settled on abortion

By Paul Tun The Interim A Gallup Poll brief obtained by The Interim indicates that the conventional wisdom on abortion - that there is a "pro-choice" consensus among Canadians - is wrong. Josephine Mazzuca, a research analyst for Gallup Canada Inc., told The Interim that Gallup conducts a poll on attitudes about abortion almost every year because "Canadians are interested in this issue." Pro-lifers should be especially interested because the poll results indicate ... (Continue reading)

The Glamourous choice

If Glamour readers are glad to be alive and shod by Gucci and made fragrant by Ginvenchy, they should all be pro-life, not only for themselves, but for everyone else By Donald DeMarco The Interim Having daughters around the house can occasion some decidedly unconventional reading for a professional philosopher. A few mornings ago, between the corn flakes and the coffee, sat, of all things, the May 2000 issue of Glamour magazine, ... (Continue reading)

One in 25 women hospitalized after abortion

Much lower StatsCan figure based on incomplete and misleading data, study shows By Isabelle Being The Interim A recent custom tabulation of Canada's hospitalization statistics shows that, out of 103,244 women who received legally induced abortions in 1992-1993, 3,931 women were hospitalized for an average of two days because of life-threatening complications. This yields a hospitalization rate of 3.8 per cent, or one out of 25 women - a rate three times ... (Continue reading)

Abortions up 2.9%

But no one would know, if Ontario had its way By Paul Tuns The Interim Jakki Jeffs, executive director of Alliance for Life (Ontario) is not the least bit surprised that the National Post had difficulty obtaining Ontario's abortion statistics. The Guelph pro-life leader has met roadblocks repeatedly over the last several years in pursuing basic statistics on abortion from the provincial government. The February 29 National Post reported that the paper had to go to the Information ... (Continue reading)

Abortion figures termed ‘appalling’

Pro-life officials take little comfort in published reports that Canada's abortion rate is levelling off. Statistics Canada figures released in early November indicate the rate of increase to be 0.4 per cent, the smallest rise since 1988, when the Supreme Court struck down the former abortion law. The data also shows that nearly 107,000 abortions were committed in the country in 1995, the latest year for which data is available. Other trends revealed in the Statistics Canada report are that older women are ... (Continue reading)

Scare led to abortion rise

Ten thousand more abortions than expected took place in the nine months following the scare over contraceptive pills two years ago, the latest U.K. population statistics reveal. The figures represent the highest proportion of women having abortions since records began nearly 30 years ago. The panic followed a statement by the Committee on Safety of Medicines that seven brands of the Pill doubled the risk of deep vein thrombosis, a potentially fatal blood clot. ... (Continue reading)
