TORONTO (Reuters) - A Canadian contractor is looking for donations to fund a funeral after finding a mummified baby in the wall of a Toronto home.
Home renovator Bob Kinghorn found the tiny body, wrapped in an 80-year-old newspaper, as he was running a wire through the three-storey Kintyre Ave. home, in one of Toronto's older neighbourhoods.
"I opened it up, looked close and didn't believe it. But then I looked closer and I saw the fingers and the little toes. It was all wrapped up in the fetal position," he said.
"I'm going to take donations, and I want to try to bury the baby. I want to name him Baby Kintyre."
For the people who are so sanctimonious and do everything you can to shame women/girls who have children out of wedlock, this is the result of that burden of shame you heap on them.
You are the same people who are avid anti-abortion activists. So, better to have an unwanted child and it end up being dumped or killed. What the heck is the difference? Except one is an embryo who cannot feel pain and the other is a live and kicking human being who can feel pain.
During pregnancy, human life is medically referred to as an embryo during its first 56, 61, or 91 days (sources differ). Later it is called a fetus until it is born.
Many pro-life groups emphasize that embryos start to develop pain sensors a few weeks after conception. Many readers of their literature then assume that embryos can feel pain from this point in pregnancy onwards. However all available evidence shows that even though these sensors develop early in pregnancy, human embryos cannot actually sense pain. Certain major components of the central nervous system that are necessary to feel pain are not present and functioning.
One can only imagine the needless pain and anxiety felt by women who believe -- on the basis of some pro-life literature -- that their embryos have suffered pain during an abortion, miscarriage, or emergency treatment for an ectopic pregnancy.
