Abortion killed 5x more Canadians than COVID in same period. It’s time to flatten this curve

March 24, 2022 (Campaign Life Coalition) – About 37,000 Canadians tragically died from the COVID-19 pandemic over the last two years. A different kind of pandemic, however, far more deadly in its scope and victim-count, continues unabated to destroy human lives across the country.

Since February 2020, when COVID started claiming the lives of Canadians, until now, this more-deadly pandemic has claimed the lives of an estimated 200,000 victims, making it five times more deadly.

Compared to the COVID pandemic, where the vast majority of victims were the elderly over the age of 70, this more-deadly pandemic exclusively targets the youngest members of the human family.

While the COVID pandemic prompted governments, politicians, and leaders of every kind to declare a “state of emergency” and band together to come up with solutions to “save lives,” this other pandemic has been entirely ignored, or worse, aided and abetted by these same governments, politicians, and leaders.

I’m talking about the pandemic of abortion.

I’m talking about pre-born children, the victims of this deadly moral disease.

Yes, abortion is pandemic in Canada and across the world. Abortion has become pandemic on account of so many people being infected with immoral ideas. Ideas have consequences, and in this case, they’re deadly.

Some of these ideas include that the strong should be allowed to dominate the weak and dependent, destroying them when necessary, that “choice” and “bodily autonomy” means terminating someone who is weak and dependent when they’re inconvenient, and that children in the womb are less human than children outside the womb on account of them being weak and dependent.

Over the past two years, while businesses, gyms, and churches were closed to keep people “safe” from COVID, Canadian abortion mills were deemed an “essential service” and continued the daily grind of exterminating children in their mothers’ wombs. For every person that died from COVID, the lives of five babies were snuffed out by abortion.

While COVID restrictions inevitably forced many businesses to permanently go out of business, the Canadian abortion industry saw an uptick in the number of abortions and requests for information and services related to abortion.

And what were Canadians willing to do to bring an end to the COVID pandemic? Many were willing to change their lives, sacrifice comforts and conveniences, and even allow their rights and freedoms to be infringed upon – all of this to “stop the spread” and “save lives.”

“We’re all in this together,” we heard over and again during the COVID pandemic. “We need to flatten the curve.”

Because of abortion, pre-born children face a “state of emergency” every day in Canada. And, the abortion curve continues to climb.

Babies in the womb are our fellow human beings and our brothers and sisters. When they are attacked and exterminated, all humanity suffers as a consequence. Abortion leaves no one unaffected. It causes devastating shockwaves across the nation, affecting mothers, fathers, grandparents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, homes, towns, and cities.

It turns out that with abortion, we are in this all together. And, we need to work together to flatten this curve.

And what should we, pro-life advocates, be willing to do to bring an end to the far-greater pandemic of abortion? How are we willing to change our lives and make sacrifices to stop the killing and save lives? We must unite with a common purpose.

That’s why I’m looking forward to attending in person the upcoming National March for Life in Ottawa on May 12. The March for Life is a great way to kickstart your pro-life activism, recommitting yourself to the pro-life cause throughout the year.


I’m going to rally on Parliament Hill and march through the streets of Ottawa letting lawmakers and citizens alike know that there’s a deadly pandemic against the pre-born raging across our nation that must be put in check. I’m going to let them know that pre-born children deserve the right to live and to be legally protected in the womb.

Since babies in the womb are voiceless, I must be their voice.

I’m looking forward to joining with thousands of people from across the nation to make visible this “state of emergency” pre-born children are in.

We’ll unite with a common purpose to save lives and end this deadly pandemic.

I invite you to come and join me to take a stand for the pre-born. Together, we can and will make a difference. We must make a difference – lives are at stake.
