National Day of Action for Choice: Sunday September 28

September 25th, 2008     by Jessica Yee     Comments

In the last year the Conservative government brought forward a series of motions which aim to remove women’s reproductive freedom. In addition many members of the party have stated publicly that they intend on bringing similar bills forward after the election regardless of whether the party holds a majority or minority government, or opposition role. One such bill (C484-Unborn Victims of Crime) easily passed 2/3 votes in parliament and was likely to pass the third and final vote with support from both the government, and opposition parties. All this despite the fact that the majority of Canadian’s support a woman’s right to choose!

Sunday’s Pan-Canadian day of action is about demanding our parliament listen to the pro-choice voices of Canadians, demanding our parliament get serious about ending violence against women, and stop playing with womens rights!
