Today Marks 22 Years...

... Since all legal restrictions on abortion in Canada were struck down by the Supreme Court in the R. v. Morgentaler decision.

I've said it before on this blog, and I will say it again- Canada has one of the most (if not the most) permissive abortion regime on the planet.

Abortion is legal for all 9 months of pregnancy. Though its hard to find a doctor who will do it, partial birth abortion is perfectly legal in Canada.

January 22 marked the 37th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the decision that legalized abortion in the United States. The US Council of Bishops announced that January 22nd was to be a day of penance and that masses that day would be dedicated to those who lost their lives to abortion.

While the Canadian Bishops have made no such pronouncement for today, I ask you all to think about doing something in penance for this grevious sin that stains our nation. Will you fast? Pray? Attend Mass?

Let's all do something, and then pray that next year won't mark the 23rd anniversary.

Too many have died already.

May God have mercy on us all.
