Pharmacists and physicians involvement in medical killing is outrageous and a betrayal of the public they purport to serve.

The Ontario Pharmacist Association was “Incorporated in 1966, OPA advocates on behalf of more than 20,000 pharmacy professionals in Ontario. The Ontario Pharmacists Association is committed to evolving the pharmacy profession and advocating for excellence in practice and patient care” OPA’s mission and vision are supported on what OPA calls “strong foundational values that are proudly upheld by OPA leadership and team members.”

One of these strong foundational values is integrity, defined as “being transparent and holding true to what we believe is honest and ethical.”

Pharmacists remain at the top of the Gallup’s annual survey of professionals that rank the highest in “honesty and ethics”.

In Canada, doctors also came in as the most trusted group (rated as trustworthy by 70%)
I begin this January message with these points because it is precisely the betrayal of this trust that in my estimation is most unsavoury root of medically induced abortion and the euthanasia and assisted suicide challenge as well.

Two of the most respected and trusted medical professions appear not to be worthy of that trust at all when it comes to the beginning and the end of human life! In Canada of 2023, both these professions play their part in either referring, prescribing, or dispensing lethal drugs under the guise of “medication” each receiving their “30 pieces of silver” for their involvement. In my estimation this is the greatest betrayal and therefore tragedy of all, that physicians and pharmacists appear willingly involved in the taking of innocent human life using medical means at a patient’s request.

Let us ponder, just one area of betrayal that I see today. In a visit to the Ontario College of Pharmacists website, Government links are available for pharmacists, patients and interested parties. On one dated December 7th 2017, and directed toward patients states: “The medication [mifegymiso] induces a miscarriage-like process and no surgical intervention is required.” It goes on to state …{Mifegymiso} is recognized as a positive step in supporting autonomy for women’s reproductive health, provides an alternative to surgical abortion and expands access to care…”


Here are some quotes I found with a simple Google search on “miscarriage”:

“Most women who suffer miscarriages don’t talk about them. That sense of isolation has implications for long-term mental health and well-being. In one study, 20% of women who’d suffered two miscarriages still had symptoms of depression almost three years after the birth of a healthy child.”

“Their family, friends, and sometimes even their partners, don’t understand the profound grief they feel… Miscarriage is a traumatic event which affects every woman differently, but can lead to grief, anxiety, depression, and even symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).”

“Globally, about 12–15 percent of recognized pregnancies end in miscarriage. Studies suggest that after a miscarriage 30–50 percent of women experience anxiety and 10–15 percent experience depression, typically lasting up to four months.”

According to the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in the UK, grief following miscarriage is “comparable in nature, intensity, and duration” to grief reactions in people suffering other types of major loss.

A 2016 study calls attention to the traumatic nature of a lost pregnancy: it found that four in ten women experienced PTSD symptoms within three months following either a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. PTSD symptoms reported by the study’s participants included nightmares, flashbacks, and re-experiencing feelings associated with the loss. Some women also noted they attempted to avoid situations that would remind them of their loss, such as pregnant friends or relatives.

One wonders how two medical professions regarded by the public as the most trusted and honest of professions, stay silent in the face of this absolute betrayal of pregnant women.

Don’t worry your little head it is just like having a miscarriage!!! While one might understand the ignorance of a government in making this statement there is no reasonable excuse for medical professionals who have dealt with the tragic situation of miscarriage, not to challenge it.

Those of us who have supported women after induced abortion know the grief and depth of pain experienced by many of them. Many of us have known personally or experienced a friend’s miscarriage, and again the grief is overwhelming. Then why would the medical professions appear to support a process that puts a woman through a procedure that causes so much agony short term with possible long-term physical and mental health consequences.

I can hear it now, but induced abortion is a choice, miscarriage is not. I truly understand that very well, but our bodies and psyches do not – that is why the betrayal is even greater when it comes from medical professionals who know better than I, the possibilities of trauma facing these women. Where are the ethics, the strong values, the trust, honesty and the patient care now?
