Justin Trudeau has been lambasted for being against “choice” when it comes to how new Liberal candidates vote on bills related to abortion—he expects them to vote in favour of dismembering pre-born children, which includes children moments from birth. But the problem with Trudeau is not his new expectation that representatives who align with a specific party align one particular way; rather, the problem with Trudeau is the specific position he holds on abortion.
Justin’s father Pierre may have given us the Charter, but it seems Justin himself hasn’t read it. If he had, he would have seen The Charter is actually anti-abortion.
Most prominently, Section 7 guarantees “everyone” the right to life, liberty, and security of the person. Who falls under the category “everyone”? Considering that killing a dog, while perhaps outrageous, isn’t a Charter violation, but killing a toddler is, it seems reasonable to deduce that “everyone” refers to all members of the humanfamily. After all, that’s how the United Nations defines everyone in its Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
To exclude some members of the human family from basic rights like the right to life, is to permit discrimination, thus violating Section 15 of the Charter as well: “Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination…based on…age.”
To deprive the pre-born their right to life because they are inside of, and dependent on, their mothers’ bodies, or because they may not feel pain, or because they cannot think and reason, is to discriminate against them based on age. After all, the pre-born are where they are because, in our species, at that age, that’s where you should be. They are as dependent as they are because, in our species, at that age, you are dependent on your mother’s body. They have a low level of development because, in our species, at that age, that’s the developmental level you should be at.
Why should those of us who are older be allowed to kill those who are younger?
But Justin seems to think they should be, making him an oversized bully who not only wants to maintain Canada’s status quo (which includes abortion late in pregnancy and for sex-selection) of ripping off the limbs of tiny human children for any reason, but he wants to ensure other Liberal party representatives do the same.
