Abortion in Saskatchewan

From the Regina Leader-Post two days ago.

Abortion and population

Wednesday, June 13, 2007

In these days when there are so many schools closing in Saskatchewan, has it ever occurred to our government or the public that one of the causes of these closures is the large number of abortions that have snuffed out lives that would otherwise be students in our schools?

According to Saskatchewan government statistics for the years 1994 to 2006, there have been, on average, 1,700 abortions each year. That means that in the last 13 years, 22,100 children are not in our schools because of induced abortions. At 25 students per classroom, that means we've lost 884 classrooms of students.

The slippery slope predicted in the 1970s has been here for some time. Abortion has diminished the value of children -- just look at our low birth rate.

Let's turn things around and "grow Saskatchewan" by stopping, or at least reducing, the numbers of abortions done in Saskatchewan every year.
