Abor­tion laws part of pop­u­la­tion de­cline

Toronto Star - - NEWS -

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
