Abortion laws part of population decline
Re Raise the bar on immigration, Editorial, Oct. 7 One can agree that bringing a massive number of immigrants into an underpopulated nation like Canada makes sense.
But the editorial totally misses the mark, since it does not address the cause of the demographic problem and the better long-term solution.
The lack of any law restricting abortion has helped depopulate Canada, relatively speaking, accounting for the lack of young people and a dangerously aging population.
One of the best solutions is to increase immigration but another excellent way to guarantee a future is to permit children in the womb to see the light of day.
The editorial ironically is applauding the intellectual and professional pillaging of other nations by Canada.
I can hear this ad: “Give us your brightest, most educated, most skilled, most motivated citizens and, in return, we will donate $654 million to help you destroy your unborn children through promotion of reproductive rights and health.”
The unfairness and illogicality of such thinking is astounding for its emptiness, vulgarity and a veiled form of racism in its own right. Dan Di Rocco, Markham
