e-2051 (Abortion)

E-petition
Initiated by Mea Fredrickson from Lillooet, British Columbia

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled

Whereas:
  • In Canada, abortion is a service covered by public health services, costing taxpayers millions for abortions at hospitals and private abortion facilities, at a cost to taxpayers of approximately 80 million dollars per year;
  • Pregnancy is not a disease, injury or illness;
  • An abortion is not a medical necessity and therefore should not be funded by taxpayers;
  • The Canada Health Act requires provinces to fund "medically necessary" services; and
  • The practice of abortion conflicts with the Christian faith and no Canadian should be forced to violate his or her own conscience in order to abide by the tax laws and regulations that fund the killing of unborn children.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to cease providing taxpayers’ dollars for the performance of abortions by passing legislation that recognizes the fact that abortion is not a medically necessary procedure and to define abortion under the Canada Health Act as not meeting the criteria of "medically necessary", and therefore not funded by taxpayer dollars.
