TERRACE, British Columbia, April 27, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) A British Columbia Green party candidate in Canadas upcoming federal election said hes 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 were young. ... and Im sorry, but a lot of us men are bloody selfish when it comes to having sex.
We think its 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.
Benhams support for abortion aligns with the Green partys 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 Canadas maternal health programs do not limit access to any form of family planning and primary health care, including access to safe, legal abortions.
The partys position was reinforced earlier this month by Green party leader Elizabeth May, who said that she was anxious to correct the false impression that shes anything less than fully supportive of abortion. Insisting shes 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 its not a morally wrong decision by any means, she said.
LifeSiteNews.com did not hear back from Benham or May by press time.
Benhams 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 Canadas 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 CLCs 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 couldnt 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.
God will see it differently you murdering bastard.
What a vile excuse for a human being.
What a vile excuse for a human being.
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?
Fortunately, we can expect zero Green Party candidates to be elected.
The casualty count in anbortion is always 1 dead, 1 wounded.
Man has a sick soul. I mean dark, evil, twisted, dripping with decay type of soul.

No, thank Molloc.
I hope so, FRiend.
Sounds like a Nazi.
Some lives are just not worth living...
-—We think its 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.-—
What a selfish, immature SOB.
You'll see just how God appreciates what you've done, murderer.
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?
While it’s in vogue to mock the killing of nascent life, only a fool would mock the back end of a bus.
The biggest supporters of abortions are liberal male jackasses.
I wonder on mothers day if he will tell his mom she looked like the rear end of a bus when she carried him...
I pray that God close the womb of any woman he desires a child with in the future
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...
The abortion of my child in 1975 haunts me to this day. Reading this guy’s comments makes me understand that evil does walk the world. God help him.
She takes up arms for this cause?
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.
“Thank God we decided to get rid of it,
A disgusting choice of phrase.
A very sick society.
Thank God we decided to get rid of it,
Unfortunately, his mother didn’t have the same sentiments.
Abortion is Green T-shirt
I'm sick of the GREEN PARTY!! You - SCUMBAG - are not a human being.
Did I insult SCUMBAGS, by comparing Roger Benham to SCUMBAGS??
“A Dream A Lot Like Mine” is my story and it may be helpful to you, I hope. God bless.
touching, honest lyrics and song. Thank you so much.
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.
You’re very welcome. Glad you liked it.
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.
The man is an accessory to murder if the woman’s life was not endangered.
That is what I think will happen when one goes before the Lord.Anyone you hurt in any way who has went before you will be there with G*d wanting you to answer for your transgressions.
Is a woman who actively wanted and sought an abortion to be considered wounded by it?
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.
Benham is a well known Green nutjob.
obscure and silly
no one takes him seriously and he nor the Greens ever get over 2-4% in that liberal district
Many who abort celebrate it and yell that it was their 'right'!
Eeek... and this loon might be a vegan and PETA member.... go figure...
I think this sort of attitude would go WAAY down and marriage rates would go WAAAY up (divorce rates the opposite)
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.
It wounds the soul, the yelling is just to cover up the guilt.
