Former abortion patients declare "legal abortions do not equal 'safe'
abortions for G-8"

"Real Maternal Health Care for pregnant women should not include abortion," states Denise Mountenay, President of Canada Silent No More, an organization of women damaged by legal abortions

EDMONTON, AB, June 29 /CNW/ - The Lancet, Medical Journal recently published an article on research stating a substantial decline in maternal deaths since 1980.(i) Making HIV/AIDS a huge factor in Maternal Morbidity, not so called "unsafe" abortions. (ii) Nations that outlaw abortion also have the lowest Maternal Mortality rates like Mauritius and Chile. Worldwide, the nation with the lowest maternal deaths is Ireland, a nation that prohibits abortion and protects the rights of the unborn.

Over 100,000 elective abortions are performed and paid for every year in Canada. Almost half are repeat abortions. Thousands of women around the world are writing declarations on the pain of legal abortion and how it has devastated their reproductive and emotional health.

In April, Mountenay gave an Oral Statement to the UN's 43rd Commission on Population & Development in New York. "It is mind-boggling how abortion advocates use euphemisms, rhetoric and pressure to push the population control agenda by tying it to Maternal Health Care," she reported. Adding, "Not one study shows induced abortion is therapeutic for women."

Although, abortion providers claim that abortion is safe; many studies substantiate that legal abortion is linked to depression, suicides, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, pre-term births and miscarriages in subsequent pregnancies. 30 credible worldwide studies link Breast Cancer to induced abortion! See:

The Elliot Institute reports that the majority of women do not want an abortion as 64% are coerced or pressured into it by boyfriends, parents, husbands and abortion clinic workers. Many women suffer cervical and uterine damage, sterility, guilt and deep remorse from abortions.(ii)

Women in developing countries need food, clean water, antibiotics and access to clean blood, emergency and basic obstetric care, repair for Obstetric Fistula, a devastating condition that is treatable & preventable. Pregnant women need sanitary medical health services to preserve life and delivery.

They need birthing kits, antibiotics, skilled birthing attendants and doctors who save lives. We commend our Prime Minister for wanting to extend REAL Maternal Health care to pregnant women in developing nations, not abortions.

Mountenay hopes that Canadians will no longer be forced to fund abortions.
