I was going to post something on Gwyn Morgan (thanks Mac), but something else caught my eye.
According to the Star, it seems that Alberta Conservative backbencher Leon Benoit is planning to introduce a private member's bill which would make it a separate criminal offence to harm an unborn child in cases where a pregnant mother is assaulted or murdered.
The bill was initiated over the story of Olivia Talbot, a young Edmonton woman, who had chosen to keep her child and raise a family. An ex-boyfriend brutally shot and killed her and then shot and killed her unborn child. The baby's grandmother held the little boy in her arms briefly. He was 27 weeks along. She said that other than the bullet wound, he was perfect.
So Olivia had chosen to allow her baby to live, rather than aborting him. Her boyfriend took away her right to choose.
It should be interesting to watch how far this bill gets in the House of Commons.
