Jonathan Kay Explains Lying

Last night on Twitter, I asked Carolyn Bennett to respond to Jonathan Kay's demonization of later-term abortions.

She did. She asked him why he misrepresented the facts.

He denied he did and challenged her to point out where he was in error. They went off in other directions about bureaucrats and regulations and what-not.

I chimed in with this.

Bennett agreed.

Kay's response.

So I quoted the whole sentence, in two tweets.
It is perfectly legal in Canada to have or perform an abortion — for any reason, or no reason at all — at 20, 25, 30 or 35 weeks gestation.

Isn't that special? Redefining his way out of a pickle.

Like all lying liars.

(The date-stamps on those embedded tweets are weird. This all happened this afternoon.)

ADDED: The original story has been corrected. Not in the way we want, but it can be done. Who knew?

Such a lazy assed git Kay is. lying by omission. Misrepresentation.

Ah well, The National Pap is still bleeding money.
Yet another example of Conservative Mythology.

The Free market already spoke on NP and its originators.

Typical male right-winger eager to score goals by regulating lady-parts.

Kay's also not a careful reader: the CIHI manual he's quoting from actually Notes and explains with a whole sidebar that the third example he includes should NOT be included as a livebirth (among those 491) at all because it's less than the potentially viable 20 weeks gestation so wouldn't be coded as one of those P96.4's or indeed with any sort of infant coding at all.
