When Pro-Aborts Need It, They Defend Back-Alley Abortions

A lobby group named "abortion rights coalition" released a list of talking points against the Unborn Victims Of Crime Act. Most of those arguments falsely claim that bill C-484 will define unborn babies as persons (there's none of that in the bill) or that it will criminalize abortions (which in fact will be exempted under section 7).

So if they bothered to read the bill (especially section 7 which excludes abortions as well as any actions from woman's side that might harm the fetus), there would be nothing in their list of "talking points" except a couple of suggestions to address domestic violence instead (as if any assault on a pregnant woman could qualify as domestic violence), some pathetic statements such as "victim’s families should not determine legal remedies" (sure, let's leave it to the bleeding-heart leftie activists) and - their ultimate argument:
11. People who help women self-abort could be prosecuted. If women try to self-abort and persuade someone to help them, the helper can be prosecuted under a fetal homicide law and suffer grave injustice.
Now that's strange. For years the pro-aborts have been telling us that legal abortions are a must to ensure that women no longer have to turn to back-ally abortions. Remember all those coat-hanger signs? Well, now it turns out that back-alley abortions still exist. And, to make things worse, there are pro-abortion lobby groups that actually support them.

Otherwise why would they even raise that point? If anything - they should be concerned whether the exemption for legal abortions in section 7 would actually let back-alley butchers of the hook. (After all - there are currently no laws regulating abortions, thus it's often hard to distinguish between a back-alley abortion and a legal one.) Instead they refer to back-alley abortionists as "people who help women to self-abort" and they worry that they may face prosecution under the Unborn Victims Of Crime Act.

We've seen already that the pro-abortion movement has nothing to do with choice. Clearly, it has nothing to do with women's rights either. What they campaign for is abortion at all and any cost.
