Charter's Birthday Robs Unborn Of Their Birthdays

Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms celebrates its birthday on April 17.

The Globe and Mail and the National Post are running stories on the results of a Toronto symposium celebrating 25 years of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The symposium’s committee of constitutional scholars has selected the Top 10 Charter Cases.

No doubt the Charter revolutionized many facets of Canadian society and the concept of justice in Canada. Certainly it was the vehicle which ensured delivery of over 100,000 dead unborn children to Canada annually—all quite legal killings.

Two of the ten Charter cases had a very direct bearing on the legalized killing of unborns in Canada:

Charter Case 2:
Reference re B.C. Motor Vehicle Act, 1985: Using the Charter's Section 7 guarantee of life, liberty and security of the person, the Supreme Court struck down a law under which anyone caught driving with a suspended licence was subject to a jail term.

The panel observed that ruling opened up "the Charter's most abstract and potentially far-reaching guarantee" far beyond what those who created the Charter had ever intended. They said that the ruling paved the way for the court later to invalidate Criminal Code provisions restricting abortion and constructive murder.
Charter Case 4:
R. v. Morgentaler, Jan. 28, 1988
The court struck down Canada’s abortion law, ruling it violates a woman’s right to “life, liberty and security of person.” In a 5-2 ruling, the Supreme Court restored a jury’s acquittal of Dr. Henry Morgentaler in 1985 for performing abortions in his private Toronto clinic.
A Short Summary of the Criminal Law Surrounding Abortion by Daniel Santoro
“It is the ultimate irony that that section which guarantees the right to life was used to provide unfettered access to legalized abortion in Canada up to the time of birth and thereby take away the natural right of millions of unborn.”

It would appear that the simplest and most direct means to protect unborn children from being destroyed by their mothers with the help of professional killers paid for by Canadian taxpayers is to grant them full, legal personhood through a constitutional amendment.

God help every Christian and every moral minded Canadian to work tirelessly to that end.
