A first roundup of news and commentary for 2022. Buckle up.

For those interested, our intrepid pro-life researcher Pat Maloney has the 2020/2021 abortion numbers for Ontario—although they are, because this is Canada, incomplete. It is nearly impossible to get good data in this country.

Because our culture has lost all semblance of sanity and is spiralling wildly out of control, it appears that COVID-19 patients may soon be eligible for assisted suicide in New Zealand.

The Economist continues to expose the poisonous effects of gender ideology, this time in a January 8 column titled: “Trans ideology is distorting the training of America’s doctors.”

This powerful column by Dr. John Maher on how Canada’s assisted suicide regime is exploiting the vulnerable is an absolute must-read.
