Baby ‘not human until birth,’ Canadian doctors say comment (0)

September 13, 2012

OTTAWA, Canada — Canada’s leading doctors association has approved a resolution that says an unborn child does not become a human being until it is fully born.

Delegates to the annual General Council meeting of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) voted Aug. 15 to endorse wording in Canada’s Criminal Code that says a baby “becomes a human being within the meaning of this Act when it has completely proceeded, in a living state, from the body of its mother.”
