What is abortion?
An abortion is a medical or surgical procedure that terminates a pregnancy.
Pregnant means “having a child or young developing in the uterus” (Oxford Canadian Dictionary of Current English). Therefore terminating a pregnancy means terminating the child developing inside the uterus (womb).
Abortion can be chosen as a matter of “convenience”, but is also very often influenced by negligence in the care and support which should be given to pregnant women.
There are alternatives to abortion which can help meet the needs and concerns of women and preserve the life of the child.

What is Euthanasia?
Euthanasia is an act or omission of an act that is done to directly and intentionally cause the death of another person to end suffering. Euthanasia is a form of homicide that is usually done by lethal injection.
Assisted suicide occurs when one person aids, counsels or encourages another person to commit suicide. Assisted suicide is usually done by prescribing a lethal dose to a person, knowing that the person intends to use the lethal dose to commit suicide
