NEW study shows fathers more likely to kill their children than mothers -- or does it?

David MenziesMission Specialist

The Media Party is trumpeting a new study, based on Statistics Canada data, about domestic violence, child abuse and parents who murder their children.

According to the provocative headlines that greeted this study, fathers are more likely to kill their own children than mothers. 

But is that really what the research shows? One family rights advocate doesn't think so.

For one thing, the study looks at those accused of murdering their children, not just the convicted.

And when it comes to one particular form of infanticide, mothers are the overwhelming culprits.

WATCH to learn about the other flaws in this widely mis-reported study, and why the truth matters.

Brian Lilley should stop pussy-footing around. If he thinks Jews are more likely to kill gentile babies he should just come out and say it.
This is 2015 in Canada and racism and bigotry are there for the taking.
Muslims, Jews, and other “weirdos” are attacked “en masse” in our new society.

I would like to see how this researcher defined “father”. Statistically men are very unlikely to harm their own biological child. In the case of molestation especially, girls are more likely to be molested by a step father or mother’s boyfriend than their own biological father.

BREAKING NEWS: I am shocked that this mother was charged with first degree murder as she should, instead of infanticide as mothers usually are. Infanticide caries a maximum 5 year jail term while first degree murder a 25 year minimum. The flawed paper Dr. Myrna Dawson wrote misleadingly inferring fathers are more likely to kill their child is wrong and shields mothers as equal danger to children in filicide. We must identify and accept that mothers are just as capable of killing their own children as fathers.

Why can’t the study show that it is more likely that a muslim man chop off a head, than a muslim woman?

All men are bad – the courts have proved it over and over and over again with uneven sentencing.

We live with a legal system and not a justice system – which is why – opinion only – every time I read about a man being sentenced for something – I now wonder – if it were a woman – what would the sentence have been?

In nearly EVERY case – far less I am certain.

I have not trusted the legal system, the courts and especially the appointed and elitist judges for more than 40 years.

All designed to make the most out of punishing the male and letting the female off with far lighter sentences.

I wonder how my kids ever made it?

Your stats bear out studies that I had seen some thirty years ago. Nothing has changed. Men and women are equally violent, or non-violent, toward infants and children. I had also seen another interesting but whispered study that showed that women are more likely to molest infants than men, but are able to disguise the act as part of “motherly” attention. But society always points the finger at males no matter what.

In the early 1990s there was a school teacher who would bring students home for additional study. It turned out that she was having sex with the students (around twelve to fourteen years old). She received three years less a day because, well, women usually don’t do things like this and a long sentence would not act as a deterrent to other women. Her husband, who did not participate but knew of her actions, received twelve years. This was in Ottawa. Remember, Justice is blind. Yea. Right.

Peter Netterville;
I agree. It is more important to be politically correct than it is to hand out honest and fare punishment. LW, BS.

Thank you!

Many of the court judges, unfortunately, seem to follow what is the most politically correct and base their decisions on that rather than the law. A a person who firmly believes life starts at conception, I am deeply distressed by abortion at any stage.

A society can validly be judged by how it treats its’ young.

It is not a mental sickness, it is evil.
