Katrina Effert Who Killed her Infant baby is Freed by Canada’s Pro-Abortion Law!
An Alberta woman won’t be going to prison for strangling her newborn baby with her underwear.
Katrina Effert, 25, wiped away tears as an Edmonton judge ruled Friday she can serve a three-year suspended sentence with probation.
Effert was 19 when she secretly gave birth in her parent’s basement in Wetaskiwin, south of Edmonton, in April 2005. She then tossed the baby’s corpse over a fence into a neighbor’s backyard.
Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Joanne Veit said the public naturally grieves for the dead baby boy.
“But Canadians also grieve for the mother,” she said. “This is a classic infanticide case — killing a newborn after a hidden pregnancy by a mother who was alone and unsupported.”
Effert was twice convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole for 10 years. But the Alberta Court of Appeal ruled earlier this year that the murder conviction was unreasonable and substituted one of infanticide.
Medical experts testified Effert had a disturbed mind when she killed her baby.
The Crown has already asked the Supreme Court of Canada to review the case.
Prosecutor John Laluk said Effert deserved four years in prison because she showed no remorse for her crime by lying to police and initially blaming her boyfriend for the killing.
The maximum sentence for infanticide is five years, but Veit said prison time is rarely handed out for such offences. She said the wildly inconsistent stories Effert gave police were actually “painful evidence” of her mental imbalance at the time.
As part of her probation, Effert must notify officials if she becomes pregnant again so she can receive assistance and counseling.
Veit described Effert as a person of good character with no prior criminal record who spent nearly six years living under restrictive bail conditions.
More from the judge from Life News.
After reading an article like this, my thoughts are not of judgement, they’re thoughts of weeping. Thanks to men like Henry Morgentaler, our precious country that was founded on the Word of God has rebelled to such a degree that we have created our own terms and meanings for the word murder. It’s only murder if…..
Jesus said that “even if you have hated you commit murder”. Jesus raised the bar for murder yet we have drastically lowered it through abortion. Abortion has numbed the conscience of North Americans to such a degree that our judges who are supposed to be here to protect the most vulnerable of citizens, instead are defending the criminals. If a Canadian abortion clinic can perform a partial birth abortion then what’s wrong killing a child right after the birth?
The truth is, everything is wrong with it. Yet Canadian doctors can abort babies up to full term, it’s crazy how we call it abortion even when the baby is full term, then the second it takes a breath we change the term from abortion to murder. Below is one of the methods that Canada uses in aborting clinics to kill babies right up to 9 months….
Dilation and Extraction (D&X) (intact D&E, partial birth abortion)
There are currently no Canadian abortion laws at all. Since abortion reporting and recording is inconsistent and incomplete across Canada, it is not known if, or how many, abortions occur by this method in Canada each year.
D&X abortion is a variation of the D&E method, and is used after the first 20 weeks of pregnancy. Laminaria treatment over several days causes wide cervical dilation. The abortionist, guided by ultrasound, uses forceps to grasp the fetus and position it face down and feet first. The fetus, intact and often still alive at this point, is delivered up to the head. The head is too big to pass through the cervix. After puncturing the base of the skull, the brain is suctioned out, the skull collapses, and the dead fetus is delivered. Digoxin, potassium chloride, saline or urea are sometimes used to kill the fetus before delivery.
Closing Thoughts: So the bottom line is that murder is murder no matter how you look at it, whether it’s a mother strangling her new born baby or a doctor delivering the baby at full term up to the head then sucking it’s brains out. I hope and dream of the day when the word “Abortion” will sicken Canadians and anyone who hears it, the day when we see it as a horrible stain on our country’s conscience, Jesus may it come soon.
I am so thankful for the Living Waters ministry who have given their lives to sharing the gospel with people all over the world. Recently they have worked very hard to release a shocking documentary on the issue of abortion. 180Movie.com is not just any pro-life movie, 180 movie is changing peoples minds so quickly that literally within minutes they are doing a complete 180 from pro-choice to pro-life. Please help 180movie reach the masses.
