Why I sometimes hate my country


Yes, the title suggests some very harsh feelings. But tell me how I'm supposed to feel when one of the highest honours that can be given to Canadian citizens is granted to a Holocaust survivor who has spent decades in this country performing abortions and fighting tooth and nail to make it even easier for women to slaughter their own innocent, unborn babies. The death penalty was outlawed in Canada in 1976, and had not been employed since 1967. I agree with the ban on capital punishment, because I believe in the sanctity of human life no matter what a person has done. God will punish them the way He sees fit when the person quits this life. Our only job as humans on this Earth is to keep dangerous people locked up so they cannot hurt or kill again.

Canada got this part right. But we are also the only country on the planet that has no legal restrictions against abortion whatsoever. Women can get abortions any time, for any reason, at ANY STAGE IN THE PREGNANCY, and in most provinces the government will fund these abortions at least until the end of the first trimester. Am I the only asshole around here who thinks this problem needs to sort out its priorities and whip their citizens into taking responsibility for their own actions?
