Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the rule of law;
  • There has been no law governing abortion since the then current law was struck down by the Supreme Court in R. v Morgentaler in 1988;
  • There are approximately 100,000 abortions conducted in Canada each year;
  • These abortions have proven negative effects on the physical, reproductive and mental health of women who choose to have abortions;
  • The unfettered rights of the women to choose must be balanced against the rights of the unborn and other stake holders such as the father as well as parents of young pregnant girls;
  • Laws will help limit the use of abortion to control race, sex or other characteristics deemed to be undesirable; and
  • Section 7 of the Charter guarantees the right to life of the person.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to initiate a respectful debate in the House of Commons with the intent to form an all-party committee that will draft a bill governing the conduct of abortion in Canada, and that consideration of this bill will be by a free vote in the House.
