Former Abortion Patients Denounce Morgentaler's Award

    EDMONTON, July 8 /CNW/ - The Morgentaler abortion industry is not doing
the majority of women, or Canadians a favour by exterminating their preborn
children; future teachers, nurses, doctors, technicians, police officers,
military personnel, firemen, tradesmen and retail workers etc.
    'Most of us never wanted an abortion, but were pressured into it. It was
never a 'medical necessity'; we were healthy women ignorantly using abortion
as a form of birth control,' states Denise Mountenay, Founder/President of
Canada Silent No More. "We believed that if the government allowed it, and the
doctors did it, that it must be okay. Many of us were lied to about fetal
development being told our babies were 'just clumps of tissue,' Mountenay
continues. "However, later, when we learned that our growing children had a
beating heart by 3 weeks, arms, legs, fingers and toes by 8 weeks, we were
    Canada Silent No More is collecting declarations from women hurt and
injured by legal abortion for possible lawsuits against abortion doctors for
irreparable damages and for failure to provide 'informed consent' on all of
the risk factors. 'We were never told about the mountain of studies linking
Breast Cancer to induced abortion since 1957(1). We were never informed that
induced legal abortion would cause deep sorrow, remorse and guilt. We weren't
told it could cause depression, suicidal thoughts, self-loathing, sleeping,
eating and anxiety disorders, that some of us would have irreversible cervical
and uterine damage and scarring(2). We were never informed about the
48 studies linking pre-term births in subsequent pregnancies, miscarriages,
and for some who would abort the only baby they could ever conceive' states
    Canada Silent No More regularly receives calls from post abortive women
who suffer deep physical and emotional pain. "Approximately 10% of women
suffer immediate complications, of which about 2% are life threatening. (4)We
get calls from women injured physically and emotionally and who suffer in
silence and grieve," Mountenay points out. "Not only that but, research
confirms that women who abort are SIX TIMES more likely to commit or attempt
suicide afterwards. Women who abort are also SIX TIMES more likely to turn to
substance abuse and self destructive behaviour." She explains. "A 1997 Finnish
record based Study found that women who aborted were almost FOUR TIMES more
likely to die in the following year, than women who gave birth to their
babies. (3)It can affect their bonding with born children, because one is
alive, and the other one isn' can affect her sexually, because abortion
is connected to sex. (4)It is certainly not a 'safe' procedure according to
the studies." and
    "Dr. Morgentaler has created an abortion on demand culture, where every
day over three hundred babies are aborted in our nation", states Mountenay.
Abortion is not 'real health care' for pregnant women. For decades now,
Canadian children have been exterminated in the womb, Canadian women are
suffering, and we have a population dirge. It is unthinkable to assign
Canada's highest honour to a medical doctor who destroys lives. That is why,
Mountenay concludes, "Canada Silent No More urges the Deputy Secretary to
Terminate The Order of Canada to Morgentaler immediately on behalf of our
unborn children."
