VANCOUVER, May 24, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Western Standard magazine, one of the few conservative publications in Canada, has acquired an internal document from Women's Hospital in Vancouver which shows that abortions are carried out at taxpayer expense when the reason is merely that the parents are not satisfied with the sex of the child. The cover story of the June issue of the magazine, which is arriving in mailboxes this week and is set to hit newsstands next week, reports moreover that similar to countries where sex-selective abortions are rampant, the birth ratio in certain communities in Canada with large Indian and Chinese populations is becoming increasingly skewed against girls.
I'm glad to see that Canada's women are protected from the crushing burden of having to support a baby girl when they're only ready to support a baby boy. If we forced them to have girls, think of all of the horrors that would ensue.
