Canadian Bill Would Allow Pregnant Women to Start Maternity Benefits 7 Weeks Sooner
Ottawa, Canada | 12/7/16

Over the past number of years in Canada, there has been a marked increase in women working in highly physical skilled trades typically thought of as “men’s domains”. These jobs may come with more risks for a woman and her pre-born child during pregnancy, or be inadvisable or impossible to continue in while pregnant. While the Employment lnsurance Act states that pregnant women are eligible for a total of 15 weeks of maternity benefits, the earliest these benefits can start is 8 weeks before the birth of her child. Those eight weeks, however, are beginning to be recognized as woefully inadequate in an increasingly gender-balanced workforce.

Euthanasia Will Not Give People Dignity Any More Than Abortion Gave People Equality
Ottawa, Canada | 7/22/16

Being pro-life means, by definition, being for life. The same groups that recognize the value of children in the womb are those who recognize the value of the elderly, the terminally ill, the mentally ill, and all human life. With euthanasia and assisted suicide now accepted in Canada as additional ways to eliminate inconvenience and suffering, it is worth considering how interconnected the issues of abortion and euthanasia are.
