|Dear Robert A.,An important motion is set for its first hour of debate in the House of Commons on March 28, 2013. Motion 408 calls on Parliament to condemn the practice of sex-selective pregnancy termination. MP Mark Warawa introduced this Motion in September, 2012. After a second hour of debate later this Spring, M408 will be up for a vote in the House of Commons.Here is the full text of the Motion:“That the House condemn discrimination against females, occurring through sex-selective pregnancy termination.”
«Que la Chambre condamne la discrimination envers les femmes, notamment l’interruption voluntaire de la grossesse selon le sexe.»
The Motion will not change the law regarding female fetuses or abortion, but it will raise the discussion on and off the Hill on the subject of gendercide.
Here’s how you can support Motion 408:
Canadian Physicians for Life has cooperated with a number of other organizations to look at sex-selective abortion beyond Motion 408. See the Defend Girls web site for more resources on this important issue, including an examination of gendercide in Canada. The articles and peer-reviewed studies will also be available on our own web site soon, for those of you who are pink-averse!
