Whereas pre-born children develop the ability to feel pain by the beginning of the third trimester (26 weeks gestation) at the latest,1 and
Whereas abortion is legal and taxpayer-funded throughout pregnancy, and
Whereas a pre-born child in the third trimester would feel the abortion being performed on her, and
Whereas torturing a pre-born child to death is wrong,
I, the undersigned, call upon the Parliament of Canada to enact laws which will protect pre-born children who are capable of feeling pain from excruciating deaths by abortion.
1Some studies indicate that pre-born children begin to feel pain as early as 15 weeks. Even pro-abortion institutions acknowledge that by approximately the beginning of the third trimester (26 weeks), they start to feel pain.
