In Alberta Canada a woman was given a suspended sentence for killing her newborn child. The woman was 19 had a child in secret and strangled the baby with a pair of underwear and tossed the body into a neighbor’s yard and got a suspended 3 year sentence for it meaning she doesn’t have to serve jail time unless she screws up again like killing another kid. I guess that would give her a good 6 years for killing two kids.
The judge in the case was quoted saying:
“While many Canadians undoubtedly view abortion as a less than ideal solution to unprotected sex and unwanted pregnancy, they generally understand, accept and sympathize with the onerous demands pregnancy and childbirth exact from mothers, especially mothers without support,” she writes… “Naturally, Canadians are grieved by an infant’s death, especially at the hands of the infant’s mother, but Canadians also grieve for the mother.”
Really? you are grieving for the mother who murdered her child? This isn’t even about abortion the kid was already born. Mark Steyn called it a Fourth Trimester Abortion to shock people into understanding the implications of this ruling. The thing is, is that this person (if you want to call them that) was an adult and in Canada abortion is legal so they could have had an abortion at any time. Hell even if she wasn’t an adult last time I checked you can get an abortion in Canada when you are underage and they can’t inform the parents.
there are a lot of problems with this and the first is this really has nothing to do with abortion. No matter what your view of abortion is this wasn’t one and had nothing to do with it so the fact that it is brought up by the judge as part of the defense of the accused is ludicrous. If the judge was honest they would have said “eugenics should be legal so I’m going to give this woman a bullshit sentence since I can’t get away with giving her a medal and an iPad”. The kid was already born, it’s not an abortion. Another thing the judge did was bringing up how hard it is for someone to raise a kid by themselves as part of the defense of her bullshit sentence. The woman lived at home and was already supported by her parents so it’s not like she didn’t have a home, or have to worry about paying the rent or anything since someone was already doing it for her. She made the choice to have sex, then she made the choice to murder her own child. She could have easily gone to an abortion clinic in Canada and gotten rid of the child (for free, if Canada’s health care is all free and shit) but instead she waited to have the child and then strangled it with some underwear and tossed the corpse into someones yard. No one in a post-industrial country suffers that much where killing their child is excusable in any way especially one with the welfare state Canada has.
It only gets more fucked up:
“Next week, the court will hear arguments on a remaining issue from Effert’s long legal battle: the 16 days of jail time she still must serve for throwing her baby’s body over the fence.
Her lawyer, Peter Royal, asked the court to do away with the penalty or allow her to serve the time on weekends. It was “unjust” and “almost mean to incarcerate her” at this point, he argued.”
Really 16 days in jail for tossing a dead body into someone else’s yard and that is “unjust” and “almost mean” to put her in jail for that? OK, you have a point on one of those. It is unjust to only throw someone in jail for 16 days after murdering a child and tossing the body into the neighbors yard. Hell tossing a dead baby (or any dead person) into the neighbors yard should be a lot longer of a prison sentence that 16 days. even if you just found a corpse and tossed it into someone’s yard for shits-n-giggles you should at least do a couple years in jail and if you killed the baby in the first place since that should be an automatic trip to the electric chair.
Are there any sane people left in Canada?
I hate it here…
