Giuseppe Gori, of the Family Coalition Party of Ontario puts forth a very convincing argument in his recent newsletter, "Straight Thoughts 144". I had it forwarded to me and am currently trying to get a link for you. If I receive the author's permission, I will reproduce it in its entirety.
According to Gori, he has proven that Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin supports this notion. The argument something like this:
On December 1st, 2005 Supreme Court Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin delivered a now infamous speech in Wellington, New Zealand. She quoted Professor Benjamin Berger and agreed with his statement:
"...justice is not a matter of majoritarian or popular debate, but an expression of a reasoned commitment to the dignity of all human beings.”
“Similarly, if one agrees that the raison d’être of the modern state is to promote the interests of its citizens, it follows that the states should not be allowed to exterminate entire sectors of the society..."
So she is saying that respecting human life is not a matter of popular opinion, and that the state cannot allow genocide.
Gori then argues that a fetus is a being, since it exists.
It is also human, since its DNA can be recognized as such from the moment of existence.
Therefore the state should not have legislation allowing abortion since the unborn child is a "human being", and therefore falls within the boundaries of her declaration of protection.
Ergo, the Supreme Court of Canada's Chief Justice does not believe in abortion.
Another argument used by abortion rights' activists is that a fetus isn't a person until it is born. However, we have now proven that an unborn child is a human being, and that a human being is a person. Therefore, an unborn child is a person.
Case closed. Somebody should tell Jack Layton.

On that optimistic note, I would like to wish all mothers a Happy Mothers' Day. That includes ALL moms - especially those carrying our tiny unborn Canadian "persons". May God bless you and your baby and give you strength and wisdom to do all you can to protect his precious gift.
