Every year Canadians abort one embryonic human being for every three live births — one quarter of all children conceived. Many people are shocked to discover that there are absolutely no legal restrictions on abortion in Canada. A Canadian woman can choose to abort at any stage of pregnancy up to delivery and for any reason. The most appalling consequence of abortion is the squandering of innocent human life. But for the woman who submits to abortion there are also nearly always profoundly negative long-term consequences and deep emotional scars.
