Iím glad I Ďgot ridí of my unborn child: pro-abort Green Party candidate
LifeSiteNews ^ | 4/27/11 | Patrick B. Craine

Posted on 04/27/2011 1:06:00 PM PDT by wagglebee

TERRACE, British Columbia, April 27, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A British Columbia Green party candidate in Canada’s upcoming federal election said he’s glad he decided to “get rid of” his unborn child and appeared to imply that pregnant women look “like the back end of a bus.”

“I am sick to death about hearing murdering babies,” said Roger Benham, Green candidate for Skeena-Bulkley Valley, in a candidates’ debate April 20th.  He told the audience that he had conceived a child with a woman when he was 25.  “Thank God we decided to get rid of it,” he said, according to the Terrace Standard.

Still speaking on abortion, Benham said: “Really, we do silly things when we’re young. ... and I’m sorry, but a lot of us men are bloody selfish when it comes to having sex. “

“We think it’s nice enough to have a condom on and lo and behold ... we get with a woman who looks like the back end of a bus,” he added.

Benham’s support for abortion aligns with the Green party’s policy, which states that they “oppose any possible government move to diminish the right of a woman to a safe, legal abortion.”

The party is also committed to ensuring that Canada’s maternal health programs “do not limit access to any form of family planning and primary health care, including access to safe, legal abortions.”

The party’s position was reinforced earlier this month by Green party leader Elizabeth May, who said that she was anxious to correct the false impression that she’s anything less than fully supportive of abortion.  Insisting she’s “very militant” in promoting access to abortion, May told the Georgia Straight that there is “no room for going backwards” on abortion. 

“A women has a right to make that choice, and it’s not a morally wrong decision by any means,” she said.

LifeSiteNews.com did not hear back from Benham or May by press time.

Benham’s comments sparked a firm rebuke from Rod Taylor, candidate for the Christian Heritage Party (CHP).  “No human being is the back end of a bus, and that includes the unborn child in the womb,” Taylor said, according to the Terrace Standard.

“We need to show compassion to the young and we need to teach them good choices,” he added.

The CHP is Canada’s only federal party dedicated to promoting the right to life of the unborn and reinstating the true definition of marriage.

While the Green party expects its candidates to uphold its position on abortion, Saskatoon-Wanuskewin Green candidate Mark Bigland-Pritchard told Campaign Life Coalition that the party does allow “conscientious dissent.”  In a written response to CLC’s election questionnaire, Bigland-Pritchard said he believes that life begins at conception and that despite his disagreement with their policy the Green party allowed him to run.

Bigland-Pritchard added, however, that he opposes the criminalization of abortion, maintaining that such a law couldn’t be enforced and abortions would continue under “substantially less safe conditions (for the mother).”  He said he would instead strive to eliminate the reasons that lead to women choosing abortion, naming “inadequate sex education” and, particularly, poverty.

How can a man get rid of an unwanted child?

I’m sure that there are males who paid 18 years of child support and never had a say in the matter.

Adulterers like Bill Clinton like having a way to snuff out the little bastards too.

So why do HEALTH professionals advocate for encouraging teen sexual experimentation when they are still IRRESPONSIBLE CHILDREN?

The Green Party Candidate said he was 25 when he impregnated his then hook-up.

He was 25 and didn't know how babies were made or how and where to procure birth control?

Was he in poverty at the time? Would he have been unwilling to man up his cost of raising the kid?

He claims he was "with a woman who looks like the back end of a bus," that pretty much sums up his level of maturity.

I would really like to know the stats around “unsafe” abortions if laws were passed to protect the unborn (thus making abortion illegal).

Additionally, why is life inside the womb less than a pregnant woman willing to murder an unborn child?

I can’t wrap my head around this...

Greens consistently push for the breakdown of society. IIRC in the 70s in Europe they were pushing for the elimination of the age of consent. It seems their idea of paradise is to live on a communal farm, have sex with ten year-olds and abort any of the resulting babies.

I'm sick of the GREEN PARTY!! You - SCUMBAG - are not a human being.

Did I insult SCUMBAGS, by comparing Roger Benham to SCUMBAGS??

He was 25, not 17. Why did he not marry the woman and raise his flesh and blood child? At the very least he was a selfish SOB who wanted to duck out of his responsibilities.

“Thank God”

No, thank satan, pal. God is not pleased, and you’ll face him someday.

Clearly it shows that there are many men who aren’t supporting abortion for “women’s rights”. They are supporting it so they can use a woman for sex and move on without dealing with any consequences.

The most “pro-abortion” group is males in their 20’s. NOT females. Big surprise. Men want to have sex with females without consequence. And “feminists” don’t realize (or don’t care) that the result has left them as mere playthings, to be tossed aside after the guy has had his fun.

That's a myth. Support of abortion is hugely driven by women who figure they may abort in the future along with women who have aborted in the past.

Men want to have sex with females without consequence.

You are calling a baby a 'consequence': a very Obama position.

Most men view babies as blessings; more still would if society treated fathers as parents instead of as paychecks.

So Mr. Benham, you think murdering babies is ok, you're just tired of hearing about it. My guess is, it frightens you to hear about it. You're pretty much admitting you know it's wrong. You just don't want people reminding you how wrong it is.

I think this sort of attitude would go WAAY down and marriage rates would go WAAAY up (divorce rates the opposite)

IF

The western world changed their pro-feminazi family court system where the woman can just ditch the father, sue him for child support for the next 18 to 21 years and then turn the children against him (deny visitation without court reprisal, etc.)

Feminazism is a self perpetuating destructive cycle.
