Report questions Canada’s surgeons
“Canadians scheduled to go under the knife take note: Canada has the third-highest incidence of “foreign bodies” being left inside patients after surgeons sew them up…”
“Accidental puncture or laceration during surgery was the highest among the 17 countries where results were reported…”
“The rate of foreign bodies – sponges, metal instruments, etc. – left in during a procedure, at 9.7 per 100,000 hospitalizations…”

When I opened the blind this morning, I gasped! First snow of the season. The kids were very excited. Baby didn’t remember it from last year, so she was impressed. The three youngest got ready and went out to play.
Here is C1 looking in amazement after I first put her down.
And then looking down at the white stuff.
C10 and L7 were very surprised to see the snow, but told us that they wished for it yesterday! Derek told them he would help them with their next wish.

Shock: No jail time for woman who strangled newborn because Canada accepts abortion, says judge
“An Alberta judge has let a woman who strangled her newborn son walk free by arguing that Canada’s absence of a law on abortion signals that Canadians “sympathize” with the mother…”
“According to Justice Veit, Canada’s lack of an abortion law indicates that ‘while many Canadians undoubtedly view abortion as a less than ideal solution to unprotected sex and unwanted pregnancy, they generally understand, accept and sympathize with the onerous demands pregnancy and childbirth exact from mothers, especially mothers without support…’”
“‘Naturally, Canadians are grieved by an infant’s death, especially at the hands of the infant’s mother, but Canadians also grieve for the mother,’ she added.”
“Under Canada’s Criminal Code, a woman who has not ‘fully recovered’ from the effects of birth can be found guilty of the lesser charge of infanticide. To bring forward the infanticide defense, which carries a maximum sentence of five years, there must be evidence that the woman’s mind was disturbed…”
“Pro-life advocates have warned for years that widespread acceptance of abortion will open the door to greater societal acceptance of infanticide, beginning with the euthanizing of disabled newborns. Infanticide proponent Peter Singer, a top ethicist at Princeton University, has said, for example, ‘there is no sharp distinction between the foetus and the newborn baby.’”

C A N A D A . . . The country where taxpayers are forced to pay for the bloody dismemberment of about 100,000 unborn babies every year, for any reason, at any stage of development. More than three million unborn babies have died from abortion in Canada since 1969, when abortion was first decriminalized. Oh, Canada.
