Canada's leading doctors' association has approved a resolution that says an unborn child does not become a human being until it is fully born, Baptist Press reports. Delegates to the annual General Council meeting of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) voted August 15 to endorse wording in Canada's Criminal Code that says a baby "becomes a human being within the meaning of this Act when it has completely proceeded, in a living state, from the body of its mother." The resolution was intended to stop a "backdoor" effort in the Canadian parliament to renew a debate about abortion by revising the code, according to the delegate who proposed it. Canadian Physicians for Life decried the resolution, declaring that "every Canadian doctor knows that the unborn child is a live human being."
