Birth Pangs — Save Lives! Regulate Pregnancy!
For Immediate Release 02 February 2007
Anti-pregnancy people launch campaign!
(OTTAWA) A radical group of anti-pregnancy extemists launched their political campaign to eliminate pregnancy with a new website this week. Birth Pangs will be an organizing centre of support in their call for legislation to end pregnancies in Canada.
April Reign, the group’s spokesperson said, “The facts show that carrying a pregnancy to term is more dangerous than other medical procedures. And then there are the post-partum issues: depression, sleepless nights, teenagers.”
Indeed, pregnancy can cause women to suffer physical and psychological damage. The risks of stretchmarks and post partum depression are high. Many go into it at an extremely young age when thoughtless adults assure them they are making the right choice. Many have pregnancy thrust upon them.
Rates of death, also known as maternal morbidity, are between four and five per 100,000 births. “Though this number may seem low,” said Reign, “These lives could have been saved if we had laws against pregnancy.”
The group will initiate a pan-Canadian lobby campaign early next month.
